It is known that the Greeks invented geometry, and they themselves took it to all the planes of their life. That included the construction and eventually the decoration of the houses. The houses were mostly based on 90º angles with their flat or vaulted ceilings, and the curves are used for the porticos. Even today these basic characteristics subsist and you can see it clearly in this house that we show you as an example.
In their interiors, the predominant color is usually White , which is a color that in turn dominates the stones of southern Greece as well as sea salt (an important element in the life of the Greeks). Another of the important colors of this style are the blue color in its various shades from the blue of the Aegean Sea.
