Spanish Revival

Spanish revival style homes are influenced by Spanish Colonial architecture of earlier centuries. Spanish Revival is more ornate with stylistic detail apparent in both large features and small, such as intricately patterned tile work and wrought iron hardware. Elaborate tile work, applied relief ornamentation, and wrought iron grill work is used to create frames around doorways and windows, and is used widely as decorative accents throughout the house. Towers and columns are often, seen as are balustrades, cantilevered balconies, covered porches, and arcaded walkways.
