If the idea of pairing blue and white feels far too nautical for your taste, try adding hints of gray in materials like stone and wood. The neutrals promise a beach-bungalow-in-the-Mediterranean vibe (like the one pictured here), and cozy blue accents make it warm enough to enjoy year-round. Interior designer Paola Navone chose the gray-white-and-blue color palette when styling both the interior and exterior spaces of Erosantorini, a new estate on Greece’s wanderlust-worthy volcanic island, Santorini. By adding a few unexpected elements—like a Fat Boy Edison Floor Lamp—she managed to create an environment that feels at once modern and traditionally Greek.

There’s something fun and quirky about incorporating a life-size Edison lamp into a traditional space. Of course, this three-footer isn’t for the faint of heart, so if you’re not convinced it’s for you, start small with one of Fat Boy’s modest desk lamps.
