Religious Influences

Religious elements prominent in Mexico influence this yellow guest bedroom designed by Carole Meyer. The handmade iron crown holds mosquito netting above the bed and represents wrought-iron details popular in Spanish design elements. The headboard is a hand-painted folding screen mounted to the wall, and the star-shaped tin light fixture brings whimsy to the space. Kilim pillows accent the red paisley bedspread, and the three small paintings on the wall, created by Carole, are inspired by the religious iconography of Mexico.

Old World Elements

The open floor plan of this Old World Spanish-style interior allows for fluidity and simple design. The wooden ceiling beams previously used as supports now offer a decorative element.

Elegant Spanish Dining Room

The Spanish-style, hand-carved furniture complements the honey-colored velvet drapes, enhancing the dining room's elegant look. Carol Latta used hand-mixed paint on the walls for a one-of-a-kind color scheme, and the Spanish-style dining room chairs carry through the honey color of the draperies. Carol added her original contemporary art to counterbalance the predominantly historical Spanish elements. Three wrought-iron and glass chandeliers hang above the table, and skylights create natural light patterns against the wood corbels.
