SANTA BARBARA DREAM

a few weeks ago i was asked by my new friend paloma contreras to do a guest post on her blog la dolce vita. the guest post was to create my dream home- well it got me thinking, creating, building- dreaming!

well i’m already fortunate to have created my la dream home, see here and here, however, like everyone i dream about other homes, the next home- the location or locations, the different styles, the design- the dream!

as an interior designer i do this everyday for others- the color palette, the theme, the fabrics, the furniture, the antiques, the layering- shopping, researching, convincing- helping create their dream- here’s mine!

actually what i realized is i have several dream homes- here is my dream home in santa barbara! my ranch would be all about casual california living- mostly white, antiques sprinkled throughout, a great balance of traditional and modern, lot’s of windows, lot’s of moldings, and of course all with a guest house, pool house and stables- i dream of horses! understated style, refined elegance, simply sophistication- california chic! the california dream!

more dream homes coming- all in different locations, different styles, different designs! one dream- my dream!

what’s your dream home?

  1. it’s quite possible we hold the same house(s) in our dreams! classic, serene, restrained, timeless interiors never go out of style. May all your dream homes come true!

  2. What an amazing sense of continuity, of sheer harmony that you created while assembling designers as disparate as Michael Smith and Vicente Wolf. I know it’s your dream home, but when can I move in?!
