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


Yet, 90 years later... the romanticism of this early design era in Santa Barbara continues to be in high demand for the most discriminating homeowner.


As a consultant, I work with local clients seeking help in creating interior designs reminiscent of this era in Montecito architectural history.

ABOVE: Taking a break from the drawing board... I enjoy the occassional, hands-on Art Direction for decorative, architectural elements. I apply a patina to the copper lightning rod that was incorporated in to this Spanish Montecito Flip... a project that was developed by an independent real estate investor.






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


I designed this unique and special decorative element- a spanish style see through niche that has a look and feel of Old Spain.

I help clients with the design vision and can also introduce them to the talented local independent trades.




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.
