Oh that European summer. The perfect time is the allure of an Italian summer that has never been quite so potent. But let’s be honest – while the beaches, pasta, and wine certainly dominate our hunger for the Mediterranean life. The rustic charm of villa living holds its own special place in our heart – maybe it’s just the idea of those rolling hills, simple layouts, and timeless elegance but we’d take a charming heritage villa over a luxury penthouse any day of the week.
If our temperatures won’t reach those Mediterranean highs, at least we can make belief with the type of unfussy, relaxed style do so well.
JUST SIT, CHILL AND ACCESSORISE
Interior spaces need playful, comfortable shapes. While we like the bright white look amongst rougher spaces, there’s a rainbow of shades to choose from. An extra bonus? Here is a lot of inspiration just for you. When it comes to textiles, linens dominate the Mediterranean style and it’s not hard to see why. Natural fibers, breathable yet warm and with that kind of earthy texture that never wears out, linens are used throughout the home. We love the neutral shades pillowcases for a natural yet refined look.
ANY ITALIAN BLESS THE TABLE
This style calls for a table one can entertain on, literally, given its reinforced steel sun-frame. Long and lean, it’s perfect for everyday dining or hosting, while its simple form pairs well with more conceptual Italian furniture.
To get that perfectly rustic textured exterior finish. Raw, minimal and rich of culture.
A nice BED and SWEET DREAMS
A simple, uncomplicated timber bed deceptively simple, using interlocking joinery and soft lines to deliver a clean, raw aesthetic. One that is suited to contemporary or heritage spaces – we personally think it would fit quite nicely within a rustic space.
