Now trending: Mediterranean

Perhaps it’s because we’re all dreaming about escaping to far-flung destinations, but the current mood? It’s Mediterranean. And while the weather might rain on our staycation plans, we can always bring the sunshine inside – with touches of terracotta and plenty of natural materials. (Plus, any excuse to eat delicious tapas is fine by us.) Scroll on for the best inspo on the ‘gram.

You don’t get much more Mediterranean than raw plastered walls – and nope, we can’t believe @thankfifi’s based in Scotland (not Sardinia) either. Sticking to an earthy palette of green and terracotta really warms up the room.

That combo of cool, smooth marble with natural wicker? Transports us straight into vacay mode. Close your eyes and you can almost hear the sea. The pared-back colour palette in @afrobohemianliving’s space instantly brings a sense of calm. Annnd relax.

If in doubt? White-washed walls and plenty of plants = the simplest way to create chic villa vibes. @journeytono14’s taken it a step further with a statement rattan headboard, woven pots and a vintage crochet throw – just like an Italian nonna would make.

Something about this ceramic lamp nods to ornate Italian sculpture, yet it’s so of-the-moment, too. Take your style cue from @bernadette_vigl and let this statement piece do the talking – by keeping the rest of the scene serene.

What would a villa be without relaxed social seating? Granted, @oakappledecor’s garden room is in York and not Mallorca, but the sentiment’s the same: sun-bleached colour scheme with low, slouchy seats – and look at that bamboo floor lamp. We’re ready for a siesta.
