“Your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love.” ― Nate Berkus, American interior designer.

A house is nothing but an empty canvas with endless opportunities. The home dweller chooses every tiny element and transforms an empty space into a peaceful haven. Be it the colour palette, the aesthetics, design style or the furniture and accents. Here are some classic Spanish-style home design elements and tips that will infuse the aesthetics of the classic colonial era into your home while blending seamlessly with Indian design sensibilities. 

With a lot of influence from Mediterranean, French and Morrocan designs, Spanish-style homes exhibit warm textures, ornate accents, wooden beams and arches, and extensive use of urns, planters and pots. But our fast lifestyle needs a modern home interior setup with functional and space-saving furniture that is lighter on the eye and helps lead a clutter-free life. So, a traditional design may feel a bit outdated or impractical, considering our present-day needs and preferences.

To bridge this gap, we have curated some simple Spanish-style home design ideas that blend with your modern home interiors while being relevant to present trends and needs.

A Classic Arch Design For Spanish-Style Home Interiors

One of the prominent features of old Spanish-style home interiors is dome-shaped ceiling and arch designs. Now you can bring a touch of Spanish style to your modern living room with a similar simple arch design. Go for iron railings on the stairs to add to the vintage look. These lend a subtle traditional touch to your modern home interiors. This design idea is also practical for small homes. Decorate your home in a pastel colour scheme and go for simple decor elements to create the illusion of a bigger space. We added a wall to ceiling cabinet beside the sofa for clutter-free storage. Complete the look of your Spanish-style home with a jute rug on the floor.

Wooden Rafters Recreate The Authentic Spanish Mission Style Homes

Do not shy away from the wooden beamed ceiling if you want classic Spanish-style interiors for your home. They are not just a quintessential part of Spanish-style homes but also add an old-world charm to your space. You can pair it with wicker basket chairs, open wall shelves and traditional lamp shades to embrace the beauty of old Spanish-style decor. This design is chic and creates a serene aura in your bedroom. The wide window welcomes a lot of natural light into your space, while the indoor plants add a splash of freshness to your modern Spanish-style home interiors. A wall painting, macrame hangings and rattan pendant lights are enough to amplify the aesthetics of the space.

Morrocan Tiles Backsplash To Lend A Spanish Style To Your Modular Kitchen

Bring Warmth Into Your Spanish-Style Home With Terracotta Floor Tiles

Earthy flooring being one of the most integral parts of Spanish-style home designs, opt for terracotta flooring for an authentic Spanish vibe in your home. Terracotta flooring adds an edge to your home interiors and has a rustic look and feel. It helps to keep your home cool and pleasant even on hot summer days and is excellent for adding an organic touch to your home. Terracotta is also relatively easy to maintain and comparatively cheaper than other natural stones.

This design style is for homeowners who love decorating their space with intricate decorative elements. The elaborate wall panelling, designer chandeliers, a gorgeous Cabriole sofa set and a tall mirror add to the space’s beauty. You can also add some porcelain vases and metal floor lamps to further accentuate the aesthetics.
