Designer Catherine Smith blended old with new in this Spanish Colonial-inspired living room. Furniture pieces bring newer elements to the space while components from the Spanish Colonial period take you back in time. Wooden ceiling beams and wrought-iron details represent materials used during that time period, and the doorway arches were often the only ornamentation in this type of simple, informal design. Catherine used a red wine-colored velvet sofa and an oversized tapestry of a Spanish-style courtyard to add texture, giving the space a stunning appearance.
