Defining style

It’s time to replace the wooden blinds in our dining room and living room. The “Country Woods” look doesn’t support the style I’m trying to create. But what IS my style?? When I started to plan for the kitchen and started buying furniture, I had fixated on a Mediterranean villa look. I’ve since bought and looked at many interior design books that focus on Tuscan style, villa decor, etc. And few of them resonate with me. Too ornate. Too cluttered. Too dark. Too “flea market.” What some call “patina” I call plain old and worn.

I’m still enamored by the idea of a villa style, but more contemporary. Cleaner lines. Brighter. More urban. So I’ve defined my style as Urban Mediterranean (aka “Contemporary Villa”).

Here are some inspiring photos that exemplify the look.
