Spanish Colonial Kitchen

You need not live in Sevilla to capture the essence of Spanish design. This kitchen creates the look of a Spanish Colonial cocina by using bold wall tiles, terra cotta colors, wood ceiling beams, wrought iron and building the lower cabinets into the walls.

 

Designer Notes

Covering surfaces with boldly patterned and colored tile is a key ingredient to many Spanish Colonial-inspired kitchens. This kitchen uses ceramic backsplash tiles with a rosette pattern, a hand-painted look and a vivid blue and orange color palette. The rest of this kitchen’s color palette uses earth tones, which is also a hallmark of Spanish hacienda style. The conservative color palette can be seen on the floor, where rugged-looking terra cotta porcelain tile is used. Although the counters are made from laminate, they appear as if they’re textured, natural stone surfaces, in burnt red and brown on the perimeter and shades of brown and gold on the island. The use of dark woods is also a Spanish design staple, so this kitchen includes burnished brown cabinets. The appliances are more modern looking—a stainless steel cooktop, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and wall oven. Still, the sink and faucet both have a bronze finish, which jibes with the kitchen’s color story. Wrought iron lighting fixtures add the finishing touch to the space.
