Mediterranean style has taken architectural and decorative influences from countries along the Mediterranean Sea. Dark woods, extensive ornamentation and a grander scale are the foundations of the Mediterranean style. Beautiful carved lines give this style a formal look. A softer sub-style of Mediterranean look is Tuscan style cabinetry with focus on the look and feel of a Tuscan villa; sunny, warm and bright and inviting. These cabinets tend to be light and monochromatic.
