Outdoor Decor Ideas Inspired by the Med

Mediterranean Outdoor Decor

Summer on the Med is a dream for many, but it doesn’t need to be so far away. By embracing stylish Mediterranean design concepts, you can transform your outdoor living space into a scene straight out of a movie set on the Italian Riviera. With crisp whites and blissful blues, we’ll help you drift away to the sun-soaked coast of the Mediterranean without leaving your own backyard. 

White Outdoor Sofa

All-White Furniture 

Take a page from the Grecian handbook of design and opt for all-white furniture outdoors. While it seems like a risky choice, you can easily find performance fabrics in our design center that will withstand the elements and help you keep your whites bright. An all-white sofa with blue pillows is like a breath of fresh air in the summer, creating a sense of serenity that evokes the charm of the Greek islands.

An Al Fresco Dining Area

Turn your backyard into a scenic area where you can dine while enjoying the sunset. Start with a sturdy, stylish dining table and add comfortable outdoor chairs or benches. If you plan to enjoy many of your meals outside, you might consider incorporating a grill or outdoor kitchen nearby. That way, you can entertain your guests while cooking up a storm. Add the finishing touches of string lights, lanterns, and lush greenery to create a magical al fresco dining area.

Outdoor Table
Outdoor Shower

A Serene Outdoor Shower 

Escape the everyday and take advantage of the warm summer weather by installing an outdoor shower. Even if you aren’t close to the beach, you can still reap the benefits of having a shower to rinse off in after a hot day of working in the yard or swimming in the pool. Consider using natural materials like unique stone or wood for the shower enclosure and complement it with metallic fixtures for a polished finish.

An Outdoor Bed/Daybed

You’ve already got the shower; may as well bring the entire bedroom outside! In the right climate, sleeping outside can be refreshing to the spirit, making you feel like you are on vacation. Or if an outdoor bed isn’t your style, perhaps consider a daybed by the pool where you can take an afternoon nap in complete comfort. Be sure to use weather-resistant fabrics in soothing colors to make your space feel dreamy.

Outdoor Bed
Large Floor Pillows

Use Large Floor Pillows as Extra Seating 

Finally, embrace the laid-back attitude of the Mediterranean by incorporating some large floor pillows to your outdoor seating area. Oversized cushions provide a highly versatile seating option that can be easily rearranged when guests come over. Choose light neutrals or blues to complement your serene outdoor theme and scatter them around for lounging in the sun.

Adopt a Mediterranean Lifestyle at Home

Even if you live an ocean away from the Mediterranean, you can still tap into the tranquility and beauty of the area by creating an outdoor space inspired by the sea. With natural elements like stone pathways, white furniture, and lush greenery, you can evoke the Med’s world-renowned charm. It’s your home and you deserve to have it take your breath away.
