Wanderlust Wednesdays: Greece

Good Morning! I’m Yana from NoMad Luxuries, and I am so excited to be guest-blogging here, on Emerald Green Interiors, with you all. While Corinne is about to welcome her bundle of joy into the world, we’ll be holding down the virtual fort for her.

As I’m sure you all know, Emerald Green Interiors is about infusing your life, and home, with beautiful colors. With that being said, Wanderlust Wednesdays was created to bring inspiration from all four corners of the world. Get ready to stamp that passport! Each week, we will be “visiting” (I wish) a new destination and showing you how to incorporate that inspiration into your interior design.

While all the options can get a bit overwhelming, the weekly series will have a mood board to help you create a cohesive color scheme. In the end, I hope you take away just the right amount of inspiration to help create a beautiful maison for you and your loved ones.

For our debut of Wanderlust Wednesdays, I kept close to my roots and drew inspiration from Greece. While the palette is focused on a myriad of blues to mimic the sky and ocean, there are so many more elements that can add to a serene and Mediterranean concept.

I brought together hues of blue, olive tones and pops of coral and pomegranate, with natural textures of stone and warm woods. White and cream act as the neutral base

You can take Greek design literally and incorporate the Greek key, which adds a sense of regal that I love so much. Or you can incorporate the laid-back concept by introducing linen fabrics, soothing colors and gilded accessories to your decor.

Here’s some more ambrosia for your design-hungry souls! (Ok… I went a bit overboard).

{I absolutely love this room. Golden yellows, serene aqua blues and gilded sconces and lamps. Black and white tie the room together to give it a balanced feel.}

{Mimic the sky and the ocean by adding an unexpected pop of aqua or teal.. Mix wood tones and create a large art wall gallery for a dramatic and polished look}

{Choose a color and layer multiple hues to add depth to a bright and crisp bedroom like the one shown here}

{The unexpected color pairings of magenta and mint add a fresh spin on these otherwise neutral rooms. Adding brass accessories ties the past and present with gilded Byzantine flair.}

{By bringing multiple shades of blue into your decor, the distinction between outdoors and indoors fades away. Capturing colors and elements of nature, adds a sense of tranquility, while sheer whites and gauzy textiles create a breezy and airy room}

{You may think this room is neutral, but the colored details go a long way here. This fabulous space incorporates pops of color with embroidered pillows and a kilim-like rug. Metal accents add shine and warm woods and baskets add a beachy vibe.  For those who are hesitant in taking a color plunge, this is the perfect first step}

See you all next week at our new destination: Mexico.

  • Hi Yana and Corrine! What wonderful examples you’ve used here. I really love the yellow examples, we had a lounge like that in velvet mustard yellow when I was growing up:) My favorite I have to say is the last example; while I’m in no way scared of color, I find these tones of white so peaceful and warm.
