Wood pedestals bring a natural texture to beautifully contrast the smooth artistic pieces. Dark pottery stands out against the bright white walls decorated with framed artwork. A sleek, oblong sconce provides a beautiful and unique lighting element to highlight the area.
The corner of this hallway is brought to life with a Mediterranean display. A clear plastic table supports a trio of beautifully ornamental blue vases. Two tall wicker baskets are perfect height for tucking under the table doubling as storage space. A mirror is mounted over the setup to fill some of the gray wall space.
A checked pattern over the buffet piece features alternating textures beneath ornamental metallic knobs. A pair of table lamps match the brass of the knobs, and the shape of the base blends the mediterranean influence of the display with the more contemporary surroundings. Framed art fills the wall space while a bubble contemporary light fixture finishes out the design with a modern flair.
Surrounded by rolling hills, the simple yet beautiful courtyard offers privacy with minimal landscape, hardscape and decor. A decorative wrought iron railing sets the tone for the Mediterranean design.

A simple yet sophisticated foyer welcomes guests to this 1930s Mediterranean villa in Los Angeles. By limiting the decor to a marble-topped table and worn neutral runner, the designers ensured that all eyes would be on the room's interesting architectural details, like the coffered ceilings, carved faces and Spanish-style staircase.
To spice up the decor, HGTV Star contestant Boris Eckey used a faux trellis paint pattern on one wall, hung custom artwork and added a classic extension dining table and unconventional seating, like bright yellow director's chairs. Now this Tuscan-style dining room feels like it's been part of the house forever.
When you have a large island, designers often use three pendants to fill the space. A pendant with mercury glass, for example, can add style to any kitchen, no matter whether you’re going for a retro look or an upscale Mediterranean-style beach cottage, like this home in Alys Beach, a coastal Florida community. This finish is available anywhere from $50 and up through home decor stores and retailers.
