Spanish Revival in Bentwater
In a time where traveling is not as convenient, this Bentwater custom home transports you abroad. Nestled on a private man-made island off of Lake Conroe, it's unique floorplan is enriched with the ornate and detailed architecture of the Spanish Revival movement.
What is Spanish Revival Interior Design?
The term Spanish Revival was coined to describe homes that were built in the early 20th century, heavily influenced by the prior Spanish Colonial architecture. It is an romantic blend of Mediterranean and Spanish design elements that radiate a warm, casual and inviting feeling throughout the home.
The characteristics of Spanish Revival-Inspired interior design:
Stucco exteriors, thick walls, and tile roofs
Neutral color palettes with accents of vivid colors and patterns
Elaborate doorways. Often decorated intricate carvings and iron grillwork
White walls with open arched hallways
Ornate iron scroll work, unpolished stone, and mosaic tiles
Wrought iron lanterns, hardware and accents on doors, windows and railings
Exposed support beams, weathered hardwood floors and raw edge open-shelving.
Inner courtyards. Common among early Spanish Colonial homes, they offered a cooler outdoor area for cooking and informal family gatherings.
