I am grateful for the referrals... and enjoy helping Montecito home buyers that are seeking quality design ideas for the fixer upper purchase(s)they are considering.
For this project, I proposed cost effective Spanish Colonial Revival details-
Copper lighting rod,thick wooden shutters, sandstone rubble walls, Spanish Fountain and a stone cobble path.
Sweet Lavender, Rosemary, white iceberg roses, italian cypress, and potato vines
A Historic West Beach, Santa Barbara Spanish Revival renovation...
This San Francisco couple was looking for charm-giving ideas for a project they had begun with a local Santa Barbara Architect.
I developed several hand drawn renderings for helping them visualize the upscale spanish details that would make this house... a home.
The BEFORE photo
Elliptical arch windows, a 2 piece mission tile roof entry stoop, thick arch top door, iron window grilles, thick corbels supporting a 2nd story above, and an authentic carriage garage door...

Tuscan inspired architectural design elements, colors, finishes and landscape create a new theme for this newly completed and elegant Montecito home.
I often mention that I pray for inspiration for my design concepts... and truly look forward to seeing the creativity that reaches pen and paper.
This Fixer Upper was particularly challenging, and I really wanted to produce some nice initial design ideas for the Realtor/Real Estate Investor team whom regularly hire me for a variety of projects they are developing.
The Ugly Duckling 1960s Fixer Upper in a Prime Montecito location was purchased as an "Investor Flip".
I was asked to conceptually design improvements that would Create Curb Appeal... and upgrade this home and landscaping with a much more appealing genre of local Montecito architecture.
and hopefully a design that would subtantially increase the Sell price for the newly transformed "Fixer Upper".
As with most great design ideas...
early impressions and thoughts can be refined and improved upon, as the idea gestates. I particularly enjoy collaborating with this talented team.
This AFTER photo illustrates the final product, and one which began from early artistic thoughts, pondering the possibilities of adding an additional roof gable with corbels, a bump out window seat and faux chimney...
Character building Elements that would "Balance Out" the original architecture which leaned contemporary. The project architect ran with my sketches, and refined them to a beautiful finish.
Our team consists of inspired individuals who each have a unique wheelhouse of talents.
This project represents one of many... where our realtor leader has organized investors, designers, architects, general contractors and artisans to see the visions through.
We each share the credit for another amazing "Flip".
