Mediterranean houses are big here in California. The problem is many of them are done terribly. Quite often you see these large, sometime huge, faux Mediterranean tract homes with matching furniture set, heavy draping, granite counter tops--and once you see one house you see them all. They all look the same!
You only have to watch Real Housewives of Orange County to know what we're talking about.
So we were so happy to stumble upon a beautiful house in Santa Monica while browsing for real estate (just for fun, mind you). Here is a great Mediteranean home that's done right. See how the furniture is light, nothing is matchy matchy, and the colors are so fun and bright?
