Mediterranean style architecture has many distinguishing features. Stuccoed walls, red terracotta tiled roofs, windows in the shape of arches or circles, wood or wrought iron balconies are main attributes of the style. Drawing influence from Spanish Renaissance, Italian villas, & even Venetian architecture, the style jumped in popularity during the 1920s and 1930s. The movement drew heavily on the style of palaces and seaside villas and applied them to the rapidly expanding coastal regions of California and Florida.
