Global Inspiration: Spain

Spanish architecture has inspired some of the most beautiful designs.  Realistically, we all can’t live in haciendas – but we can add Spanish  components to our homes by incorporating the following:  tiling detail, terracotta, arched door ways, exposed wood beams, and wrought iron light fixtures.  Then, consider using colors like: rich chocolate browns, dark blues, ivory, marigold, coral, and brassy tones.
