Summer is well and truly underway; with longer evenings and warmer weather, we’re reminded of sandy beaches and salty ocean air. The Italian Mediterranean style interior trend is making a big splash this year and we can see why. With the country still shut off from most of the world and many holiday makers opting to postpone their travels, more people than ever are spending their summers at home. We can’t promise an all-inclusive holiday but we can certainly help recreate that holiday feeling within the comforts of your own home. Simply by updating your lighting.
Italian Mediterranean: Soft Edges are Everything
The Italian Mediterranean trend is inspired by a romantic yet simple style. The use of light and neutral tones really adds life to this beautiful, airy look. This trend draws away from traditional straight furniture and leans more towards soft edges and curves. The Small Globe Frosted Glass Vase Table Lamp in White. is the perfect choice for bringing a little bit of simplicity into your home décor. Its white frosted finish features a brushed texture that is resonant of traditional Mediterranean pottery whilst also projecting beautiful bright, home lighting. With a simple design, this table lamp is ideal for a wide range of interiors meaning that you can bring the holiday to any part of your home.
Keep it Natural for Italian Mediterranean Lighting
Another key feature to this trend is the reliance on natural materials including cotton and ceramics. This is beautifully integrated in our Pleated Bow Easy to Fit Shade in Ivory. This easyfit shade has an air of freshness whilst still channeling a rustic vibe. This shade is the ideal option if you are looking to spruce up a simple old table lamp base. Its clean white pleats are reminiscent of the popular use of materials within home décor that make up the Italian Mediterranean style.
Subtle and Effective
You can use lighting in a number of ways in your home; ceiling lights, table lamps, floor lamps for instance. However, with the Large Jug Painted Glass Vase Table Lamp in Blue you can introduce lighting in an ornamental fashion. You may not be able to bring back those holiday souvenirs from your travels but that doesn’t mean you can’t make your home appear a little more exotic. This stunning table lamp features a blue glass finish which projects calming, warm lighting, making you feel as if you’re relaxing on a sunset lit balcony in Italy.
For something that makes a bit more of a statement which is still in line with the natural inspired colours that dominate the Italian Mediterranean Trend, our Flo Pendant Ceiling Light in Brushed Bronze is the ideal option. It has an amber crystal effect which creates a traditional Mediterranean aesthetic whilst emitting gorgeous warm light around your home. If you have a low ceiling, this pendant is a great way to create a statement look within a small interior. This means that no matter the size of your house you can bring the Mediterranean to you!
