Spanish Colonial Revival.

Spanish Colonial homes are known for their white, stucco walls and romantic appeal. These homes are typically made with adobe (made from clay and straw) or a brick exterior that have been finished off with plaster called “stucco.” The roof tiles typically match the outside wall finishings which can be either reddish brown terracotta tile or glazed ceramic tile set in whitewash mortar. A key element to these types of homes is how they blend well to incorporating into environments; close near local trees they share the same interior colour and materials but still remain unique, separate structures.

Natural Elements

Adobe walls are easy to build and they don’t require any fancy trimming or exterior decorations. That’s because the adobe is a natural look that has been used in homes for centuries, dating back as early as 3100 B.C., when it was first discovered by ancient Assyrians living near modern-day Syria! Because of its simplistic nature, these buildings can have an open feeling

A Central Courtyard

An open-air courtyard space is at the heart of the home, placed centrally. That’s designed both functionally and aesthetically with strategically placed structures such as benches or lush gardens—all while keeping occupants cool on hot days thanks to ample natural light streaming through the small surrounding windows.

Simple Beauty

One of the things that defines a Spanish Colonial home is its simplistic, white exterior with little decoration. Usually they have very few decorations on them because during this time period it was important to show equality among social classes and not make one class more privileged than another.

Monotone Decor.

The best way to make a monotone room interesting is through design. Using different textures and shapes, you can create an atmosphere with depth that will not bore the eye. A monotonous room does not have to be boring if it is done correctly!

The beauty of using only one defining colour in your interior design for walls or furniture pieces comes from how creative we are able get when visiting other rooms within our home space. For example, some people may use blues as their focal point while others might choose greens; but no matter what colours they decide on, the space will seem more serene because there isn’t any variation distracting them from the theme at hand.

Opposing Elements

When it comes to interior design, contrast can be an effective way of adding interest and structure. It is important however that the contrast adds something positive rather than a jarring experience for the viewer.

While some people may think that there are two ways to use contrasting elements in their decorating schemes – either being heavy handed or very subtle- they’ll find out soon enough just how much impact even small doses of difference will have on any room’s atmosphere!

Treasured Space

A monotone room can be the perfect canvas for your treasures. Without anything else to distract you, every part of each item is highlighted – from texture and colour variations in fabrics or paint patches on walls all the way down to scratches just below a chair’s seat cushion that tells its story with age. Stylish and beautiful monotone interiors are not easy to execute, but with the help of our vision it will seem like a breeze.

Plants
Local Exotic Flora and Fauna

The addition of local plant life and timber accents makes the space fresh, inviting, and charming.

Colours and space
Earthy Neutrals

Earth-based neutrals are not your typical, every day neutral. They offer a connection to nature and make us feel at home when we enter the space they inhabit. The otherworldly colours of earth tones such as terracotta, rust or caramel are exciting alternatives for those who want some more energy in their life with natural hues that can blend into any environment you choose to work within!

Materials
Natural Textures

From the shade of a rug to the fibres in your linen, texture adds warmth and intimacy into any design. One way we like to add textured layers is through natural materials! From earthy textures such as wood or stone, all the way up to softer textures like feathers and cotton fabric; it’s time to become one with nature again!

Incorporating natural elements into your space makes it feel organic and relaxed. Mixing wood, stone or plant pieces in the form of walls, tables or art pieces will not only add some beauty but also give you an opportunity to create a meeting place that is defined by nature’s beauty.

WARM AFTERNOON LIGHT

“Light is an illuminating thing. The right light lifts the mood, inspires productivity and motivates us at home or in our daily routines.”

Light is a powerful thing. How many times have we all heard that light enlivens the little things, but what if I told you it can do lots more? The right lighting in our homes not only has an impact on mood and productivity levels, its also pivotal to creating memories with loved ones! Create contrast between the centre of your room where there should be more natural light sources like windows or skylights and around the perimeter which will need less artificial light because rooms are typically used for activities such as reading or crafting.

Without the darker, quieter moments, everything is flat and boring. It’s the subtle interplay between light and dark that creates appeal

 

Designing a clean space is not just about the colours and textures but also in how you choose to use them. It’s all about creating atmosphere by using different shades, tints, and textures for your design needs.

Our designers have always taken on an important role of designing spaces that are well lit with plenty of natural light due to its benefits such as improved moods or giving off a calming effect when living within it.

NATURAL CURIOSITIES

The concept of minimalism is an interesting one. It often comes to mind when thinking about clean lines, reductive uncluttered design and monochromatic colour palettes that are accentuated by the attractive architectural features in a space. “Less is more” as they say; simplicity has become a popular way for many individuals and spaces alike to create something new from almost nothing at all.

    • A minimalist-designed space includes an open floor plan with lots of light and simple lines
    • A soothing and inviting space that has timeless aesthetic appeal
    • The simplification of the building’s form and function by utilizing reductive elements within the space
    • The design of the building relies on beauty and function.  Light forms a huge role; if they are balanced well with other elements such as form or materials then this will only increase their aesthetic appeal
