Home Decorating Ideas – The Spanish Style

Owning a house that is made in Spanish style, you would definitely like to have it decorated alike. If you decide to add some tasteful elements that are part of the Spanish decorative style you can add your habitat a warm and genuine feel.

For the use of the color the Spanish style is met in colors that bring warmth and earthly touches. Thus the use of deep reds, oranges and yellows are seen as the warm ones, whereas the greens and browns are more connected to the earthly touch. These colors can be altogether used in the presence of furniture, rugs, decorative accessories, as well as windows details.

The Spanish style décor will incorporate a lot of textures that will bring more interest to the overall aspect. Thus textured paint, rugs and woven tapestries can add a note of traditional Spanish style in your home.

Let’s not forget about the tiles, as they are important details in the Spanish style when decorating the house. The type of tiles the most popular is terra cotta but also plaster or metal can be as well successfully used.

Large plants is another addition when talking about Spanish style in the decoration of your house. Thus you can use the proverbial cacti, you can use hanging planters and/or arrange several decorative trees or bushes together in any of the available rooms.

If you can bring in also vases and pots of the traditional Spanish style and place them on the mantelpiece or windowsill or hallway table, then you can say that your house has the authentic look of a Spanish style in the decorative composition.
