2768 Mediterranean Spanish Home Ideas
Spanish style homes in the United States embrace many strands of influence from Mediterranean architecture, sometimes incorporating them into indigenous Indian styles to create new eclectic design forms. True Spanish colonial houses, the ones which were built during the colonial era of the 17th century, have largely disappeared, and the Spanish-inspired style that is seen now is called Spanish eclectic, or Spanish revival.
Spanish-inspired homes have a number of distinguishing features: stucco exterior walls, flat roofs or if they were shallow gable roofs – clay-tiled. And definitely a beautiful porch and porch supports, complete with decorative corbels. Wrought iron balcony balustrades and inset windows also mark some Spanish revival homes.
