Duck Pond at Johns Creek Apartments in Johns Creek, GA

Inspired by the turquoise blue Mediterranean Sea and the cliff-dotted houses in Spain, France, Italy and Greece, Mediterranean home décor is as much of a breeze theoretically as it is visually. Mediterranean décor colors and textures are similar to cottage design, as they’re both modeled after water, but furniture and knick-knacks are heavier, sturdier and ornate. Sit back, pour a glass of rosé and watch the sunset as you dream of your new Mediterranean apartment, wherever you are.
