And The Winner Is…Spanish Style!!!…

I have been debating on what style house would be my dream home for some time now. I have enjoy studying all the different types of architecture because real estate is one of my passions. There are many I like more than others but only one captured my heart. The Spanish style has features that speak to my soul in a way like no other. When I say Spanish it also means Mediterranean, Tuscan, and Italian styles. It has character and details that show at first sight…

Starting with the front door…

Don’t forget that garage…

But before you even get to the door you are greeted with beauty…

The entryway does not disappoint either…

Even the hallways are beautiful…

Every area has a distinct personality that is easy to identify with…even the backyard…

There are a lot of definable design aspects of the Spanish style that I love and some not so much. The traditional Spanish kitchen and bathroom designs are not to my liking as well as the tile work and clay colored flooring…

But I can always find a way to work with it…

It’s always in the details…
