Spanish Pavers and Decorative Spanish Tile Risers Create Charm


Spanish Pavers and Decorative Spanish Tile Risers Create Charm

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.

The hand-painted Malibu Faro, Catalina, and Estrella hand painted ceramic tiles (installed on the stair risers above) pay homage to the Malibu and Catalina Potteries of California of the 1920s with classic patterns and colorways. Created using the cuerda seca technique, these tiles are suitable for all indoor applications including walls and floors. They are also suitable for outdoor locations; but, can't be used in frosty environments.

The handmade rustic paver cement tiles (shown above in our Classic Cotto Dark color) offer the rich look of classic clay bisque tiles that have been used in Spain, the Mediterranean, and northern Africa for centuries. With these pavers, you get the benefit of cement in their durability and strength, a broader color pallet, and sizes and shapes that can be adapted to any décor and environment.
