California Colonial: The Spanish & Rancho Revival Styles


Member Price

California Colonial: The Spanish & Rancho Revival Styles displays the drama and beauty of historic homes in California in a deeply researched text.Southern California’s Spanish Revival monuments are pictured here-such as Hearst Castle at San Simeon, the Adamson House in Malibu, Casa del Herrero in Montecito. You will enjoy Rancho Revival landmarks like the Lummis House on Pasadena’s arroyo, and Will Rogers’ ranch near Pacific Palisades.

These all show different portrayals of the California Colonial, its romantic past and its manner of settling into California’s climate and landscape.Vernacular and religious structures built between 1769 and 1848, during the Spanish Mission and Mexican Rancho eras, gave California its unique character; a look that was subsequently fictionalized in the revival architecture produced since those colonial days. Particularly influential on residential work, the colonial styles have indulged in the rich associations with Spain’s culture-employing styles and ornament from the country’s provincial Andalusian, Plateresco, Churrigueresco, and Desornamentado styles and its ever-present Mudéjar crafts-or burrowed into its rustic pioneer roots and depicted as individual visions of earthy rancho haciendas.
