Blue sea and sky – bathed in golden rays of sunshine; green forests, white rocks – it’s all the magic of Dalmatia.

This magic of the exterior is easily transferred to the interior. By choosing the right materials, textures, colors, and patterns – your home becomes a maritime oasis. The starting point is the Mediterranean style. The characteristics of this style can be complemented by elements of related design styles, and thus, the unique interior is designed.

Let’s start by choosing the colors. Blueness of the Adriatic Sea and flowers of rosemary; blue/purple hues of irises; purple shades of bougainvillea, violets, lavender, eggplant; white stone houses and streets; green shades of pine, olive, mint, basil, sage; yellow optimism of the Sun and juicy lemon; warm earth tones, so-called “terracotta”; red tomato and wine – this is a refreshing color palette of this beautiful Croatian region.

Bright shades of blue and green, in addition to white, are often used for decorating small spaces. Walls painted in these shades seem more distant than they actually are, thus creating the illusion of more space.

If you would like to spice up the interior with warm colors, include yellow and red details in the design scheme – cushions, lamps, vases, flowers, etc.

The orange color is made by combining red and yellow. This warm color highlights and complements the cool color of the sky. Let’s recall the aesthetic effect of a terracotta vase on a blue tablecloth, pillows in the color of peach on a navy blue blanket. The colors blue and orange are opposites that attract and bring each other into balance.

If you want to create a room for relaxing, the harmonious color scheme is more suitable than the active complementary one. Combine blue tones with purple, pink or green.

The combination of navy blue, white and turquoise evokes summer atmosphere and refreshes every interior. Turquoise and pink are an artistic duo while pairing yellow with aquamarine brings the sunshine into a maritime interior.

The exterior walls of the traditional Dalmatian houses are made of stone. Window shutters are predominantly wooden and in green color.

Nowadays, the interior walls are painted in various colors, but, the traditional color palette still prevails. Wooden and wrought iron furniture in combination with stone and terracotta floors – evoke the charm of the historic palaces and houses.

One of the ways of decorating the walls in the interior is to paint sea motifs such as fish and shellfish. Another way is to stencil them onto the walls.
