In our last World Tour of Design, we took a look at Japanese architecture and design. On this World Tour, in honor of my recent entry into the Tile of Spain: Passport to Creativity 2013 contest, I’d like to travel to Spain and take a look at their design, from Spanish Colonial to modern Spanish architecture. Spanish design, like a lot of design styles in the Mediterranean region, is heavily influenced by its environment. Common colors are drawn from the coast, from the blues and greens of the sea to the whites and browns of the shore. Materials common to this style also influence the color palette, such as terracotta and copper. Texture, minimal accessorizing, and the use of metal accents and rich tapestries are also distinguishing features of Spanish design. gorgeous house in Valencia, Spain.
