Welcome to my Spanish Revival house portrait gallery.

Spanish Revival homes became very popular in California from approximately 1915-1940 as a result of the Panama-California Exposition. Eventually, the style came in vogue across the United States, but especially in warmer climates such as Florida and New Mexico. Spanish Revival houses have stucco exteriors, and oftentimes have arched doors and windows, and terracotta roof tiles. Painted tile and ornamental iron work may adorn both the exterior and interior of these homes. Many of these houses also have asymmetrical façades, tower-like chimneys, and courtyards and patios. The building materials used to create these homes is very energy efficient — the thick, stucco walls retain the cool temperatures during the day and hold onto warmer air at night. That’s what makes this style home perfect for areas of the country that stay warm year-round.
