In order to create a maritime atmosphere, it is first necessary to know all the characteristics and distinctive features of this culture. Even the smallest details will influence the end result of your efforts. This is why we will focus our attention on all key points in Greek furnishings and decoration. The latter is above all inspired by nature. It is distinguished from a simple air and an open space. To create a Greek atmosphere, you must therefore opt for nuances and natural materials. Also look for the balance of shapes, patterns, colors and textures.
Essential colors. The facades and interiors in white and all shades of blue are typical for Greek culture. The Greek houses have whitewashed walls and wooden windows colored in blue. The antique touch in the exterior is the decorative columns. The perfect combination – blue and white is also used for the interior. Here we mix pure white with different tones of light blue, sky, turquoise, navy, cobalt blue or pale azure.
At the level of the floor covering – the classic case is the natural stone floor, especially limestone or marble. Plenty of ideas for a marble tile here. Patterned carpets, floral patterns or trellises are also suitable. Traditional wooden and six-pane windows are almost mandatory. You can also install flaps in blue or earth tones. If you’re adventurous, you’ll probably like the idea for a corridor in the rocks. Seek help from specialists to recreate this impressive effect with appropriate materials.
Furnished side. Choose wooden furniture and especially – tripod tables. Opt for simple, refined elements – such as a straight settee or side chairs. If you prefer the antique style rather than the modern Greek style, decorate with antique objects and works of art.
