Spanish Revival homes became popular during the 1920s following the Panama-California Exposition, in San Diego from 1915-1917 where buildings were built using a mix of influences: Spanish Baroque, Spanish Colonial and Moorish Revival. The new homes based on these were named Spanish Colonial Revival. They had classic Spanish features on the exterior: white stucco walls, red terracotta roof tiles, wrought iron gates and window grilles and carved entry doors.

"I wanted to do something that felt as if it could have been here forever - but with a little edge," she says. - HouseBeautiful.com
