2. Patio. There are paved areas for outdoor living, usually made of tile, stone or brick. This courtyard patio has a Mediterranean influence and the floor is done in a herringbone pattern. Notice wrought-iron window grilles, a feature of Spanish architecture, in the fireplace wall.
3. Hardscaping. The emphasis is on the usable living space; plants are used to enhance the patios and tends to be on the perimeter and in containers. This patio is made of peach-toned flagstone with the spaces filled with soft ground cover. The lounge chairs face a luxurious pool with a cobalt-blue tiled wall fountain.
4. Stucco walls. The low walls of this Spanish bungalow show off the front of the house, and its old-style gate is very inviting. The mustard gold color is common for Mediterranean style homes. A similar color is: Benjamin Moore Imperial Yellow 314.
White stucco with brick or terracotta floors are the classic choice for a Spanish courtyard garden. This planter wall creates a cozy nook for dining and the perfect backdrop for sculptural, drought-tolerant plantings. A brick-toned flagstone path leads you out the gate.
6. Center courtyard with fountain. Reminiscent of the California Spanish-style missions, this formal courtyard is located in the middle of a compound and features a prominent fountain.
This space is furnished like a living room. You have a fireplace, comfy seating, lighting, decorative plants, even a patterned "rug," The hearth cleverly provides additional seating and a place to set your plate and drink. ¡Salud!
