It all started with one picture.
It always starts with one picture. In this case, it was this one:
I was scrolling through Pinterest, almost at that moment when your eyes start to glaze over and everything becomes a blur because you’ve been looking at 500 images per second when I stopped.
I had to click through. I had to see more.
And it did not disappoint.
I had no idea there was a home that had just the right amount of Spanish influence and modern appeal. It was rustic and masculine, but not too much. It was modern and minimal, but full of warmth.
It was a dream.
Fueled by my new found love of Spanish revival style, I set out to create a mood board for my dream California cool, Spanish-inspired kitchen.
I like to think of it as old world meets new world. Rustic meets modern. Basically, if yin and yang had a baby and everything was perfect, this would be it.

Modern Cabinets In Navy:
If you want the overall feel of your kitchen to lean more towards modern and less towards Spanish, opt for a sleek, minimal cabinet. Use a rich color, like this navy, to bring life and color into the space.
Tile in a Spanish kitchen is like olive oil in Spanish cuisine; it is a must! I like this mosaic pattern because it brings in the Spanish feel through the shape of the tiles but remains neutral with the off white color.
This traditional, lantern style pendant light is the element of old world I was talking about earlier. It brings a sense of age and sophistication to the room.
I chose to stick with dark accents in the kitchen, so I picked these matte black cabinet knobs to go with the navy faces.
You can’t do old world Spanish style without dark, rustic wood. You could even go a few shades darker, but this countertop is affordable and easily accessible at Ikea.
Sticking with the black accents, I chose this matte black kitchen faucet that is a mix of modern and traditional.
This sink is actually not off white, it’s almond, and I’m in love with it. It comes in 16 different colors so if almond isn’t your dream color (why wouldn’t it be?!), then you’re sure to find the perfect color for your kitchen (hint: I’m also obsessed with Basalt).
I don’t know if it’s just me, but I envision a Spanish revival kitchen with perfectly aged copper pots and pans delicately strewn in the sink. This pot gets great reviews from Amazon.
First, let’s talk about that hanging metal storage basket on the bottom. I’m totally digging that. I also love the worn wood top and the black legs and base. This piece is vintage which sounds old but apparently isn’t too old because the era listed is the 1980’s. I was born in the 1980’s. And I’m definitely not old. Right?!
If you can’t tell by now, I love vintage Persian rugs. I think they appear in almost all of my mood boards and I’m on the hunt to find the perfect ones for my house. This one is the perfect contrast against the navy cabinets. And it’s one of a kind.
