Mediterranean

As the title suggests, contemporary homes built in the Mediterranean style draw their origins from historical structures located in the vibrant countries that border the Mediterranean Sea. Influenced by Italian, Greek, and Spanish design, Mediterranean architecture is distinguished by steeply sloping tiled roofs, stone and stucco exteriors, and protruding eaves that cast shade over outdoor verandas, courtyards, or balconies—requisites for homes built in traditionally warm climates. Similar to their exterior aesthetic, the interiors of these homes incorporate elements of Italian Renaissance, Greek Neoclassic, and Spanish design, such as decorative tiling, ornamental medallions, and detailed wooden millwork.
