Neptune Lighting Design

Nice article . This is how my wife and I design our house . Rich warm woods with earthy colors . I like the comment that "aprilcls" makes . I see so many houses being built now that are modern and cold and I bet it's just a fad . These places are so uninviting . Mediterranean is a timeless style.

Also the comments made by " ital mover " describing authentic Mediterranean style. but authentic is something you will rarely see in America because we tend to overdo everything here , I do have to say that in Florida many of our walls are finished with a texture which does add depth and interest to the walls . But our kitchens are usually large and the furniture is usually store bought not hand made .

good article and comments.

Harris McClain Kitchen & Bath

As a Kitchen and Bath designer I love the warm tones the real woods and rough walls, natural feel of Mediterranean style . I don't care for the new mid century look I am seeing so often where they are using laminate cabinets that look like wood or plastic. Right away I think of a Dr.s office lol. I am tired of seeing all white kitchens! Lets bring some life back into these kitchens and baths with color and textures!!!!
