Spanish Style :
The Villa , a luxurious living community in Dubai land , Meadows at the Lakes , Signature Villas in Palm Jumeira, Palmera in Arabian Ranches, Al Furjan Properties offers distinct Spanish-style villas.
The Spanish Landscape uses a lot of contrast. Boldly colored glazed tiles, concrete pavers, Resin concrete or stamped concrete, rough travertine, sun baked Terra Cotta , crazy cut tiles and rough stones and pebbles match the Spanish architecture.
Vivid planting using succulents, seasonal flowers or perennial flowers like bougainvillea mingle with weathered stone and iron embellishments. Wrought iron, metal, black metal lights or copper and nickel metals bring an old world charm to the garden.
There is no ceiling reflecting the paint and one can use bold terractoa orange and brownish red colors to highlight the walls. Rough stone cladding, natural pond or meandering, curved water features would make it very authentic.
The Arabian Ranches and Hattan at the Lakes, has Vintage Arabian Styles of Villas.

Paving done with natural slates, sandtones, limestone, crazy cut tiles , beige claddings , use of natural wooden pillars would complement the design.
Pergolas , sail shades, tented materials, and using local fabric uplolstery in red and white blends would make it amazing.
The Villa, Hattan at the Lakes, Jumeira Island, Jumeira village circle and Jumeira Village triangle are constructed in Mediterranean style.
Beautiful and pragmatic, the is style is developed out of great diversity of Mediterranean history , culture and religion.
While the style developed in the Mediterranean basin, it is adaptable to many other areas — particularly those with a similar climate, known for winter rains and long, dry summers.
Originating in ancient Persia, high-walled gardens offer protection and relief from the elements. With their inward focus and protection from drying winds, walled gardens still provide sanctuary in Spain, Italy and Greece.
Shelter from the intense summer sun is central to Mediterranean gardens. Structures such as pergolas, loggias, arbors and arcades have been passed down to modern gardeners from the Romans.
Without shade, it would be very sunny and it will not be possible to use the garden for long. Shades for seating and dining areas provide usability to the garden.
3. Incorporating Water features
Because of water’s scarcity in the Mediterranean, many water elements, such as narrow dripping taps or dribbling fountains, offer only a trickle of water — just enough to prompt a feeling of relief from the heat.
Simple Italian water features or old heritage water feature from old Roman and times would be great. Italy is full of travertine figurative water features. So using those would be great too.
Using oleander, herbs, Olive trees, bougainvillea, creepers, cactus and succulents like aloe vera, yucca, jacaranda, hibiscus, Ipomeas creeper, lagerstroemia, Parkinsonia tree, Quisqualis Indica, also know as Rangoon creeper, a jasmine family plant, Lantana are some of the plants that one can use.
Bradstone, sandstone, beige and silver travertine brushed finish, concrete pavers , flamed granites, pebbles, natural finish ceramic tiles, quartzites, slates in beige and natural finishes would go well with this style.
Tuscan style of villas are built in Palm Jumeirah, Jumeirah Golf estates and Polo Homes. Polo homes, also offers Italian style of villa architecture.
Mediterranean and Tuscan decorating styles share many similarities, because Italy’s Tuscany region lies along the coast of the Mediterranean.
The main difference is that Tuscan style is focused solely on influences from Italy, while Mediterranean decorating incorporates elements from other cultures, including Spanish, French, Moroccan, Turkish and Grecian influences.
