What Houzz contributors are saying:
Stairways and paths. When it comes to steps and walkways, consider curved and rounded forms. Tile, stone and brick all work well with a Mediterranean-style home. Help a path settle into the landscape by lining it with plants.
Spanish style. Especially popular in warmer regions of the country, Spanish revival–style homes tend to feature arches, tile work and white stucco. Some may have balconies or a central courtyard.Is it for you? Thick stucco walls and tile floors are naturally cool, which is ideal for warm climates. The charming gardens, courtyards and balconies are perfect for outdoor entertaining. In older Spanish revival homes, bedrooms and closets tend to be small.More about Spanish revival and Mediterranean styles
