Greece is one of the most popular holiday destinations. The beautiful beaches, delicious food and friendly people are some of the reasons. Greece is a wonderful place to live and visit. With these 7 Greek decorating tips, you can bring that relaxed Greek vibe into your rooms too!
When you say Greece, you say olive oil. Olive oil is used abundantly in Greek cooking. For cooking, for salads or just to dip your bread in. Also used to preserve foods like olives, artichokes and feta.
A few nice glass bottles filled with olive oil will bring the Greek atmosphere and flavour into your home. Add some garlic and herbs to enhance the flavour and decoration!
If you are lucky, you can find the most beautiful pieces of driftwood on the beach. All you have to do is hang them up with a string. You can use them as clothes racks or hang your jewellery from them. Not everyone lives near the beach, but luckily there are many artisans who make beautiful decorations for your home from driftwood.
Every house in Greece has an evil eye. It may be a ceramic eye or a piece of jewelry. But there will be an evil eye.
The "evil eye" is a look that brings bad luck to the person it is directed at. An evil eye pendant protects the owner from this evil eye. Whether you are a believer or not, the evil eye is an essential part of Greek culture. Therefore, it is also an essential part of your Greek home decor.
Greek interiors are all about comfort, so throw pillows are not to be missed. Choose a natural colour palette or blue and white. Combine with patterns, shapes and textures. If you add an evil eye pillow you get bonus points because that's Greek it gets!
An olive tree
An olive tree in a beautiful pot will bring the Mediterranean atmosphere into your home.
Olive trees love the sun, so choose a place for them that is as sunny as possible. In the beginning, you will need to water the tree weekly, but when it is fully grown in, you can water it every few weeks. It will have a great effect and is well worth the effort!
Blue and white
Most people think of blue and white when they think of Greece. This is a quick way to bring Greek flair into your home. To do this in a stylish way, keep the base white, mixed with natural materials like wood and rattan. Add accents like vases, coasters, and pillows in shades of blue.
Lightweight woven beach towels come in handy when you are out and about in Greece. Since they are lightweight and dry quickly, they are perfect for the beach.
But they will not disappoint in your home either! Due to their small volume, your laundry basket will not fill up as quickly as usual. And their beautiful texture and design will match your Greek home style. Opt for natural tones or shades of blue. Whatever you choose, hang them in plain sight!
