FEEL THE GREEK VIBE!
The Grecian chic interior design trend has taken over the world thanks to its minimalism and incredible functionality. Being traditional, yet at the same time modern is the key that makes it irresistible; only a few interior design styles remain so fresh-looking during the years.
The Cycladic architecture serves mainly the needs of the people who used to built their houses in such a way that protected the house from the strong winds, humidity and the heat of the Greek summer.
With influences from the Ottomans, Arabs and Byzantines it is the epitome of the signature Mediterranean architecture that captures even the most eclectic eye.
To feel the Greek summer vibe, you don't have to book a ticket to Mykonos – all you have to do is add a few essentials that will freshen up your house.
Details in white, stone, light-washed wood, blue, turquoise and pastel pink and olive hues will make a huge difference if added to your living room, bedroom or bathroom.
Kilims, rugs, pillows and small decoratives are some of the Cycladic-inspired basics you will need to transform any space in an island retreat. White bed covers and sheets, linen and details like small bouquets of wild flowers or a straw hat casually thrown on your bed are perfect to get in the 'less is more' spirit of the Cyclades.
Vintage touches are also a must – old furniture with a modern twist or large vases used as ultra-chic coffee tables are the perfect way to bring the Aegean breeze in your living room.
