"It was the center of the world for so long. The culture in the Mediterranean is fascinating all around. It's full of energy." Serge Castella
A welcoming, new, down-to-earth modernism is gaining momentum, from California to Morocco, Portugal to Mexico. This direction in interiors combines Mediterranean folkloric influences with a contemporary aesthetic- taking cues from sunny landscapes to embrace warmth, light, and organic elements. The New Mediterranean showcases inspiring residences and vacation homes around the world that combine rustic, earthy tones with colourful fabrics, ceramics, rattan furniture, and Berber carpets which are offset by the whitewashed walls, concrete, brick, terracotta tiles, and glass. Introducing the designers and architects who are leading the way, while investigating the traditional craftsmanship at the heart of this movement, The New Mediterranean shows you how to bring this sumptuous, sun-drenched minimalism into your own home.
