Mediterranean-Style Kitchen That Wows

An Old World Spanish style chandelier illuminates a long kitchen island. Over-the-cabinet lights add a soft glow, while direct lights brighten food prep areas.

Old World Spanish Accents

Lanterns, a donkey figurine and a handsome piece of pottery add Spanish-style accents to the kitchen. Since families often come together to cook, this allows the homeowners and guests to make dishes together and celebrate their culture and roots.

Accent Colors

This kitchen blends Old World Spanish and modern styles. Its dark hardwoods and bold patterns get a lift from splashes of bright colors: cacti growing in pink pots, green foliage in a clear vase and a small pink, purple and yellow hummingbird hanging from the chandelier.

Eclectic Kitchen

This kitchen was designed for a client who wanted a home inspired by old-world Spanish styles. The kitchen was updated with a bold, eclectic, stylized look, as reflected by the eye-catching tiles used for the backsplash.

Gourmet Kitchen

An upscale refrigerator, gourmet oven, oversized hood and an island with a rimless sink make this kitchen a chef's dream. Glass-fronted cabinets make the space feel brighter and more open.

Patterns on Chairs and Walls

The cabinets in this eclectic kitchen are dark wood, while the base of the island is painted blue to complement the Spanish-style pattern and colors on the walls. The chairs are upholstered in a blue fabric with a similar pattern.

Terra-Cotta Floor

A terra-cotta floor emphasizes the kitchen's Old World Spanish design. The reddish-brown tiles, made from clay with a high iron content, are attractive, long-lasting and durable.

Leather Banquette

A built-in banquette covered in dark brown leather echoes the dark brown kitchen cabinets. Simple yet sophisticated Roman shades in a neutral color filter the sun while still admitting plenty of natural light.

Banquette Pillows

The banquette pillows are made from fabric as the upholstered kitchen chairs. It echoes the colors and patterns used on the walls and backsplash. A bean bag-type chair offers extra seating at the table.
