Secret #4: Textured Stucco Walls or Wallpaper

Traditionally speaking, textured walls were a part of the architectural processes of the homes in Mediterranean regions. Today, this needs emulation as our architectural practices have changed. This architectural change is especially evident in Western homes. The best way to copy this detail is with stucco or wallpaper. Stucco is inexpensive but is powerful when it comes to looks and is reasonably easy to apply. The wallpaper cost and application ease are similar.

 

Warm vs Cool Stucco Walls Mediterranean, Greek, Spanish, Tuscan, Arabian vs Greek

Secret #5: Warm Colored Walls for Tuscan, Spanish & Arabian, Cool White for Greek

Since you may be doing stucco, you may have wanted to paint the walls. Here is the next step to that. Painting walls in warm colors are perfect for Tuscan, Spanish, and Arabian feel, and Cool White walls are great for Greek design. Use the color that matches the rest of your decor.
