Mediterranean style homes are typically found in warmer climates and feature coastal design elements, such as open spaces and outdoor patios. This design style is influenced by homes in Greece, Spain, and Italy. Walls are typically made of stucco or plaster, floors are marble or tile, ceilings are usually wooden, and wall beams are left exposed. Golden yellows, olive greens, rich reds, and cobalt blues are colors commonly used and can been seen on walls, tapestries, mosaic inlays, pottery, and art.
