What’s New in Event Design: Warm Mediterranean Craft Style

January 16, 2020

This season, explore mixed materials, rustic themes and bohemian accents for on-trend designs your attendees will love. Infuse your space with what event designers, exhibit planners and trend experts are calling “Mediterranean Craft style,” featuring eclectic elements and woven textures to achieve a sophisticated, yet relaxed curated look. 

Here are a few tips to help you incorporate Mediterranean Craft style trends at your next event or exhibit:

Mix and Match Textures

Contrast is key when it comes to Mediterranean Craft, so don’t be afraid to mix and match textures. Try blending velvet and light oatmeal fabric seating with airy linen, adding pillows printed with North African motifs to create dimension and warmth. These textured and patterned fabrics pair seamlessly with natural wood and cane elements to echo a look of fine craftsmanship that will ground the space.


Introduce Rustic Undertones

Infuse warm shades of brown, terracotta, burnt orange and greens for a rustic, comfortable environment with a sun-drenched effect. Combine these organic colors with a wide range of furnishings, like brushed metallic, black metal or marble finishes, and elevate the look even more with faux fur pillows and rugs. Finally, add a fresh feel by accessorizing with Mediterranean inspired greenery, such as a fiddle leaf tree to complete the design. 

Embrace Bohemian Elements 

Incorporating bohemian elements will instantly transport your guests to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Experiment with planters, pots, grasses, soft throws, bold patterned rugs and creative lighting features, like string lights or candles. Bohemian style embodies eclectic design, so it’s essential to play with different furnishings to create an inviting atmosphere for your event or exhibit. 

For a chic and relaxing environment, wow guests or attendees by incorporating these Mediterranean Craft elements into your next event designs.
