Mediterranean STYLE HOMES

What is a Mediterranean Style Home?

A Mediterranean style home is a home where much of the characteristics are based on adobe architecture and the white cities of Spain. 

Mediterranean style homes originated in the 1920’s and resemble the aesthetic of Mediterranean villas. During the Roaring Twenties – people were consumed with leisure and wealth, resulting in the rise of seaside resorts in the United States.
