In Los Angeles, CA, you may notice that neatly tucked into quiet, more established neighborhoods a common architectural theme is Spanish Colonial Revival.
Pockets within the city of Los Angeles, Hollywood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and neighboring areas, feature colorful ceramic tile, clay tile roofs, roughly plastered walls, arched doorways, and wrought iron window grilles. According to historians, Spanish Colonial Revival was one of the most popular architectural styles in the Southwest. Inspired by the Panama California Exposition of 1915 as well as travels in Spain and Mexico, many architects found southern California the ideal setting for this type of architecture. The similarity to Spain's climate and landscape was the primary catalyst for using the Spanish Colonial Revival style to transform houses, stores, offices, and even cities throughout California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.
With this in mind, stairs and stair risers are the perfect catalysts for honoring the history of Southern California, while enjoying the benefits that only rustic Spanish paver tiles and decorative Malibu Hand Painted Ceramic Tile risers can offer.
