The Mediterranean is known for its picturesque landscapes, crystal clear blue waters and unique architecture. But did you know that Mediterranean decor is also a popular trend for modern interiors? The elements of Mediterranean decoration are a mixture of styles that reflect the influences of the cultures of the region. In this article, we present the 5 Mediterranean decorative trends to implement in your home this year.
1. Use a neutral and natural color palette
Using a neutral and natural color palette is a trend that is gaining popularity in the world of interior design in 2023.

In addition, natural colors, such as earth tones, greens and soft blues, create a calming and harmonious atmosphere, reminiscent of the colors of nature. One of the main reasons neutral and natural color palettes are so popular is their versatility. These colors can be used in any room, be it a living room, bedroom or even a kitchen. Plus, they can be easily combined with other colors and textures to create a unique style that reflects your personality.
