Mediterranean Climate


What is the Mediterranean climate like and how does it contribute to this patio style?


Essentially the Mediterranean climate is subtropical. In the United States, California is indicative of this style. For our friends in Australia, if you visit the western and southern portion you will experience the beauty of the Mediterranean.


The name comes from the Mediterranean Basin, the area around the Mediterranean Sea.


Other areas of the world that also offer this same climate exist in Chile, portions of Asia, and southwestern Africa.

What is Mediterranean Style?


Mediterranean Style, often referred to as "Spanish modern," is influenced by the countries north of the Mediterranean Sea. Look to Spain, Greece, and Italy for comparable style elements such as iron filigree, copper, and bronze. Include the color of the sea and you have captured this classic decorating style.


In the United States, I believe we use "Mediterranean" interchangeably with "Italian." This is sad because the Italian style is rich in its own right.

Inspired to Create Your Dream Patio?


Get inspired to create your own dream patio with many of these elements. You don't have to buy what is in the marketplace, you can design your own fountain.


Some of my favorite Mediterranean fountains are designed with colorful artisan tiles. The vibrant blue echo the blues of the Mediterranean Sea.


Store Bought Wall Fountains


For those less ambitious and simply wishing to delight in the sound and feel of the water feature near them, check out the option of the outdoor wall fountains. Often these recycle the water and only need an electric outlet or a battery.
