Spanish Style Home Interiors

by THAT Painter Lady

Spanish Style Home Interiors…  They are low and lighted principally from the
garden side. Each one is a simple rectangle in shape, opening into the two
rooms on either side of it.

It will be noticed that until now very little has
been said about wood.

The truth is that the Spaniards used little exposed
wood in either the exteriors or the interiors of their homes.

Floors are of tile, usually red or black. Walls are rough-plastered and
present large surfaces which may be partly covered with cloth or leather
hangings.

Fireplaces are rather plainly treated. Doorways between rooms
may be either arched or square-topped, without decorative treatment or
surrounded by glazed tile.

One of the most charming details may be the
stairways, in which the risers are faced with coloured tile while the treads
are of wood.

Spanish interiors are not cluttered up with knick-knacks.

Their feeling is of substantial usefulness.

The Spaniard's house keeps closely to his needs, and in adapting the style to modern American living conditions
the owner and designer of Spanish Style Home Interiors will do best if they follow that principle rather than straining for a decorated style.
