Spanish Hacienda style home design and bathrooms Santa Barbara

This Santa Barbara Home Design web page is dedicated to Hacienda style home designs and photos by local Santa Barbara based Home Designer Jeff Doubet

When I first met this first client, they were already planning to go with a Hacienda theme for their home remodel. They requested that I help them visualize some quality design ideas for transforming their 1970's oceanfront fixer home.

A beautiful polished copper and brushed nickel silver claw foot tub highlights this master bath renovation.

The home would become "El Sonido Del Mar" (The Sound of the Sea)...





Distressed rafter tails, authentic 2 piece Mission tile roof, bronze clad windows and Old World Plaster finish...

Authentic sandstone columns and resawn redwood arbor, and stone entry surround at solid iron and glass front doors-

These were the elements that give this home an authentic Spanish Hacienda feel.






I captured this BEFORE shot the day I met the client and their team during an initial consultation.

The ideas for this transformation began right then, as a wish list was outlined.

Back at my design studio, I began to develop several concept renderings for the project.







This is one of the books on Hacienda homes and interior design that was introduced to me by the owners of this project.


Inspirational ideas: Colors, finishes, detailing. The arched stone entry surround was incorporated into the Santa Barbara Hacienda,above.

Seeking insights into how to create high quality architectural details such as this custom grille?


I am well connected with a variety of local independent Artisan trades that create these details.


In my new book

Creating Spanish Style Homes: Before & After - Techniques - Designs - Insights, I have several pages devoted to these grilles.

I shot this particular image at another client project. All of which are featured in the book.










Want to design and remodel or build a Hacienda style home in Santa Barbara or Montecito?


This project started out as a dated 1980's Santa Barbara home, but I created a concept rendering that would incorporate a new Entry Tower, 2 piece Mission tile roof, plaster entry door surround, carriage doors and a rustic sandstone capped wall...

I shot this image of this Santa Barbara fixer home before any of the new changes were incorporated. You can see how just a few strokes of the design can have a dramatic effect.


I devoted several pages within my 240 page "Design Consult in a Book" showing the step by step progression of construction photos to achieve the results.

Woodley Road Montecito Spanish Home Renovation



Jeff Doubet, founder of Santa Barbara Home Design enjoys designing a wide variety of local styles.

Here is another example of the transformation that is possible when taking a Montecito fixer with good bones and making it into an attractive Spanish Hacienda Style Home.

My conceptual sketches for property included this Spanish Tiled Roof and Garden Passage that would ultimately invite visitors in to the inner courtyard.

Designing Hacienda Homes and Landscapes in Santa Barbara and Montecito, California





I specialize in conceptual designs for homes and landscapes.

Primarily in our local Santa Barbara and Montecito neighborhoods, but more and more I am getting client commissions throughout California, and parts of Texas, Arizona and Florida.

There are smaller homes in our area that become gems when quality ideas and resources are applied toward fixing them up.










For this tired Montecito Spanish Fixer...


New paint, architectural details and a mediterranean garden design were specified for this home before it was listed for sale.


The Real Estate investor and his independent teams of Realtor, General Contractor and landscape trades quickly transformed this flip.
