The distinctive architectural styles of the Mediterranean are understandably popular here.
We have much in common with that warm, sunny region where fruit ripens in the hot sun, herbs perfume our gardens and food is central to many occasions. The masonry walls, deep window reveals, Marseille-style tile roofs and whimsical detailing lend a sense of permanence and age to our otherwise young housing stock.
Top tip: The strong UV light in this part of the world always makes colours outdoors appear lighter than they do indoors. Often it’s best to go a couple of tones deeper than you would think and to always use a testpot to try the colour on the actual cladding before you commit to a house-lot of paint.
