Decorating with Mediterranean Style

Decorating with Mediterranean Style

Mediterranean decor evokes images of cool ocean breeze and warm tropical nights. Color, furniture, materials and accessories are carefully selected to contribute to the lush ambiance. Whether you’re building a new home, or want to transform the one you have, embrace the rich heritage of Spain, Greece and Italy to create an elegant retreat.

Color

Rich, saturated colors draw inspiration from the sand, sea and sky. In some regions, lavender, yellow and terra-cotta make an appearance. Look for bright but subdued jewel-toned hues and use them in splashes against a neutral background. If you prefer, flip the color scheme and anchor opulently hued walls with neutral furniture. Be sure to balance the use of color and neutrals to make the best use of this airy style.

Best French Door Window Treatments

French doors open rooms to light and lend architectural interest to their surroundings. This makes them a popular choice in many areas. The window treatments you choose for your French doors will depend upon your privacy and lighting needs, your budget and the style of the room they are in. Take a look at these window treatment ideas for French doors and decide which one you want to use.

Sheer Panels

Perhaps the most familiar option available, sheer panels are attached to the door itself and only cover the panes. Lace or gauzy panels are held in place at the top and bottom with mini rods installed just above and below each set of panes. This option is semi-private and still allows sunlight to filter in during the day. It is ideal for kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms.

The Resurrection of UAB Football

The University of Alabama at Birmingham began playing Division III football in 1991. Over the next 23 seasons, the Blazers made their way into the FBS in Conference USA.  

On November 30th, one day after the final regular season game, athletic director Brian Macklin was fired. This brought an end to the UAB football program, as University president Ray Watts announced that the school would no longer have a football team.  

The program was terminated due to insufficient funds and a projected increase in costs over the next five seasons. The Blazer nation and football fans across the country were devastated. It was especially disappointing since the team hadn’t received an invitation to play in a bowl game.
