Mediterranean Bedroom is Peaceful Retreat
A clean white palette evokes a serene atmosphere in this bedroom overlooking the ocean. The ceiling featuring wide planks brings a beachy tone to the space, while a low platform bed is the perfect spot to rest and enjoy the sound of waves.
Entering this Mediterranean masterpiece, guests are greeted with a beautiful, marble spiral staircase that leads down into an open seating area complete with built-in alcoves to display fine artwork. Lit by a perfectly situated fireplace and a gorgeous glass chandelier, this cozy seating area s perfect for formal entertaining.
The remodel satisfied the homeowners’ desire for more space; among the rooms that were remodeled were a ground-floor kitchen and a second-floor bathroom. Every detail of the remodel was designed to meet the strict requirements of the Mills Act for remodeling historical homes.
Spanish Living Room with Beamed Ceiling, Stone Fireplace
Light stone and dark wood finishes combine for dramatic effect in this Spanish-inspired living room. A stone fireplace extends to the cathedral-height ceiling to create a dynamic focal point. The scale of the room, coupled with elements like dark ceiling beams, round candelabra fixtures and interior balconies, gives the space the feel of a modern-day Medieval great hall.
Huge arched windows fill the front facade of this home and perfectly complement the Spanish design. A lapis blue front door makes a rich counterpoint to the neutral exterior and ties in gracefully with the colorful garden.
Contemporary Mediterranean House with Party-Ready Backyard
This modern Mediterranean hacienda in Tarzana, California, is built for entertaining. The property features a series of upper and lower terraces that open the home to the outdoor spaces. A poolhouse offers added convenience for guests, and a fire pit is comfortably placed to enjoy the view.
White Mediterranean Living Room Spotlights the View
A pair of white, nubby sofas and a fluffy white rug mirror the textured white walls in this living space, which features stunning views of the Mediterranean vista beyond. The home, a three-building villa in the town of Porto Rafael, features a neutral palette and spartan style that keeps the focus on the multitude of openings to the outdoors, allowing the view to become the home's true focal point.
This home exterior offers a compelling take on Mediterranean style. Crisp white stucco creates a clean, fresh look, and black-framed windows and doors provide striking contrast and a splash of industrial flair.
It's the details that add a touch of Mediterranean charm to this large bedroom, one of five in the home: arched windows, a pretty arched wooden door leading into the ensuite bathroom and wrought-iron scrollwork on the headboard.
From the water, the view of this 18,000-square-foot Miami Beach estate is pristine and spectacular. An arched portico runs along the rear central wing of the home, which was built in 1937 in the Mediterranean Revival style. The property has undergone an extensive renovation to turn it into a great space for modern living and entertaining.
