Modern Spanish Lighting Fixtures
For the Spanish style home, outdoor fountains act as focal points. Gardens include urns filled with cascading botanical elements, succulents or blooming annuals. Landscaping might consist of bougainvillea, roses, and olive trees which add to the Mediterranean inspired aesthetic.
Outdoor Lighting with a Spanish Appeal
Not surprisingly, this charming setting comes to life with the right lighting. Outdoor lighting options abound, allowing you to create a lighting design that suits your needs as well as matches the style of your home. Consider adding traditional style outdoor wall lights, posts, and street lanterns. Bronze finishes featuring scroll designs and leaf accents are ideal, though you can be creative with this look.
As you walk indoors, most Spanish style homes feature carved stonework or cast ornaments, as well as patterned tiles on staircases and walls or inset in stucco as accents. In a typical Spanish Revival interior, bronze sconces illuminate the hallways, a large scale carved wood mirror reflects light, and arched black casement doors lead to the outdoor areas.
Indoor Lighting – Spanish Inspired
Arched passageways and niches, without any crown molding, are classic elements. Exposed wood beams paired with white trowel walls are also common in Spanish Revival homes as are white ceilings. While ceiling lights and wall lights add a special touch, so do Spanish style table and floor lamps.
In addition to great modern Spanish lighting, get the Spanish Revival look with beautiful home furnishings and accents. Introduce drama to a living room with a decorative iron fire screen. Dress up your outdoor area with a lovely outdoor fountain. You can also add a Spanish touch to your interior with accent chairs, wooden benches, or area rugs.
While your home may not be Spanish Revival in its architectural style, you can still incorporate lighting and other elements you love. And remember, mixing styles always keeps it interesting!
