Spanish Eclectic Style Homes

Spanish Eclectic Style Home

Spanish eclectic is a term used to describe the modern tendency to mix styles and create a home based on the homeownersÂ’ own desires and needs. Designers borrow from a number of Southwestern styles to create something unique from a hodge-podge of architectural features. Instead of a simple Mission-style home, you might find a flat-roofed home with the characteristic parapets mixed with sections of Spanish-tiled, pitched roof. A hacienda-style courtyard might be mixed with Moorish details around windows and doors.

So this charming mixture of styles and design features may be called Santa Barbara, Santa Fe, or simply Southwestern.

This type of homes may contain some or all of these features:

  • Flat or low roofs
  • Red clay roofing tiles
  • Parapets
  • Stucco siding
  • Adobe walls
  • Arched entryways
  • Heavy carved wooden doors
  • Decorative wrought iron
  • Decorative floor and wall tiles
  • Portales with ornately carved support posts
  • Vigas and latillas
  • Ceiling beams
  • Walled courtyards
