The Mediterranean-Italian style will have more of a rustic feel, such as this lavish bedroom designed by Vanguard Studio, Inc. This old-world charm is normally achieved by dark wood floors, luxurious over-sized furniture, and rustic wooden ceiling beams. Rich, bold colors—reds and oranges--are often used on bedding and accents among a sea of earthy neutral colors. Faux finishes and stucco walls are common in the Italian style, but often will have more of a Venetian plaster or distressed stone texture.
