I like being a hands-on designer for decorative architectural elements that go into high quality Santa Barbara and Montecito interiors.

 

I don't have a "crew". Rather, I bill hourly for my design expertise, and then independently work with various local trades clients hire, directly.

 

The key is to find the teams that share a passion for the craft.

George Washington Smith Architect homes command the highest prices in Montecito real estate fixer properties. They are expensive to purchase and restore.

 

I work with local clients seeking help in creating interior design reminiscent of this era in Montecito architectural history.

 

 

I share design tips with clients. Please call if you are interested in an initial consultation.

Affectionately named "Bird Cage" by the Artisans putting finishing touches on it...

 

I designed a decorative spanish style niche, sent sketches and dimensions to an independent fabricator who have worked with for nearly a decade.

 

 

 

The project: one of many for a local Real Estate investor. A top producer realtor introduced me to this developer, and I enjoy designing ideas for their team of architects, permit planners and General contractors.

Designing Quality Montecito and Santa Barbara Homes

 

 

Montecito home designers and stone house photos

 

This Montecito stone farmhouse was designed by local Santa Barbara Home Designer Jeff Doubet.

 

The owners of the San Ysidro Road 5 acre parcel were looking for a design that would tie in to the rural nature of their lot.

 

I was inspired by local historic structures such as those at the San Ysidro Ranch.

The round window alcove was a design splurge... I am grateful the homeowner invested in creating it.

 

I work with home owner General Contractor's and trades to make these types of details, just right.

 

Authentic, integral color plaster was used throughout interior and exterior walls.

First incorporated in to the grand Santa Barbara and Montecito Spanish Revival Estates and Hotels of the 1920s and 30s, these grilles make for great conversation pieces in new Spanish Home renovations.

The 2 inch thick, authentic plaster grilles are available in a variety of different designs and sizes.
