Arched Windows & Doorways

Gentle curves and soft angles are a prevalent part of the aesthetic, particularly in doorways and windows.

This architectural detail makes any room feel more spacious and distinguished.

Tiles Galore

Mosaic tile backsplashes, terracotta tile floors and even tile countertops help capture authentic Mediterranean style.
