Spanish Eclectic

  • 29 of 33

Most common in the Southwest and Florida, Spanish-style architecture takes its cues from the missions of the early Spanish missionaries--such as the one at San Juan Capistrano in California--and includes details from the Moorish, Byzantine, Gothic, and Renaissance architectural styles. The houses usually have low-pitched tiled roofs, white stucco walls, and rounded windows and doors. Other elements may include scalloped windows and balconies with elaborate grillwork, decorative tiles around doorways and windows, and a bell tower or two.
