Spanish Colonial Revival is distinguished by the attractive simplicity of its forms, from the related Mission Revival, Italianate, Monterey Revival and a host of styles generally dubbed Mediterranean. Classic Spanish Colonial houses have less rough woodwork and more gentle detailing than the earlier Mission Revival residences. They are distinguishable from the more elaborate contemporary Italianate villas by their smaller windows and simpler front doorways.

In a 4-1 vote, with Councilman Thomas Lorch dissenting, the council voted to apply for a state grant to hire a historian who would help a team of volunteers create more specific criteria determining what types of homes and businesses in town should be listed as historic.

A 1929 Spanish Colonial Revival in La CaƱada Flintridge, built for entertaining on a grand scale, served as the summer home for George Grant Hoag, an early vice president of J.C. Penney Co. Original blueprints, held by the current owners, show that the plans for the home were drawn in 1927 by Los Angeles architect Charles H. Kyson, known for designing elaborate and period revival homes and buildings in Southern California. The owners have lived in the home with their family for 35 years, restoring much of the property to its original splendor while updating rooms for more modern living.

Lou Correa, students from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and members of the Hispanic Bar Assn.

Los Angeles, a city of self-inflicted amnesia, is about to suffer another memory loss. Casa Adobe (also called the Johnson house) was denied city landmark status in July, despite the energetic advocacy of conservancies in Santa Monica and Los Angeles. Preservationists see Casa Adobe, located in Brentwood Park, as an early example of the Spanish Colonial Revival architectural style. One of the three Los Angeles Cultural Heritage commissioners present at the hearing saw the house as a potential teardown.
