Identified by warm, natural colors, such as blue, terra cotta, lavender and yellow, Mediterranean kitchen designs include lots of texture and architectural interest. When it comes to kitchens, most walls, cabinets and furnishings are textured and/or have ornately carved features. Bronze is also popular with this style, so you will see a great deal of bronzed finishing touches, including faucets, knobs and so forth.
Formal and sophisticated, Mediterranean decor can be found in luxurious homes around the world. If you’ve been looking for ways to incorporate this style into your kitchen or if you are planning a full kitchen renovation with this style as your core inspiration, you owe it to yourself to look at these stunning rooms.
