Braverman. Marc Appleton Architects. | Beyond the look and feel of a clay tile-roofed and white stucco Spanish style, consider a more modern take by picking up on the innuendos of Spanish style. Arched windows or doorways, built-in bookcases with arched details, and wrought-iron light fixtures are perfect ways to keep the Spanish style alive and well in your living room. Also, white or ivory walls help to emphasize exposed wood ceiling beams, a lovely component of this particular style.
