This, together with light, modern architectural styling and open-plan interior layouts connected to exterior living spaces such as lifestyle terraces, has caused a change in the décor of homes in this region, with a shift from darker tones to paler ones. This said, the grey, white and black minimalism of a few years ago has been largely replaced by a more mixed, eclectic interior design trend in which natural materials such as matt finish wood combines with lacquered finishes in cupboards and tables. Ceramic floor tiles in light colours remain popular, but marble is making a comeback, while splashes of warmer colour and the inclusion of natural feeling textures ensure sofas, curtains and also wallpaper are richer and more vibrant.
This, together with some lively art and decorative details, adds heart to a home that will have a mainly gentle palette of whites, creams, greys and beiges. For the furniture pieces you can choose either ultra-modern or more retro-contemporary pieces, but remember that in spite of the great climate, it remains pleasant to curl up in front of the TV and relax in comfort, so look out for a large, cosseting sofa, as well as a good bed and mattress. Furniture on the terrace should be weather and waterproof, comfortable and stylish, as you’ll be spending a lot of time here, and if it has an informal, welcoming feel, so much the better.
