Santa Barbara Texas Style


The Santa Barbara style home design is a Texas custom home adaptation blend of the strong dominant architectural features of Southern California and soft relaxing taste of the Andalusia region’s architecture found only in Southern Spain. I designed this home in the same style but instead of focusing on copying a great, I wanted to make sure I used the vernacular of Southern Texas and Northern Mexico.

The house plan wraps around a negative edge pool with covered outdoor living areas giving the home a very “private resort” feel while still maintaining the feel of a home.

The interior features plaster arches, groin vaulted ceilings and a Boveda ceiling in the kitchen. Featuring hardwood floors, ceramic tile, and wooden cabinetry the contrasts of light and dark provide a very positive energy inside of the home and creates a natural flow through the house. This home and design structure provides a great example of the combination of organically inspired Santa Barbara designs and the use of building to dominate nature.

One of my personally favorite parts of this Santa Barbara home is the Master bath. This design is one-of-a-kind with a curved walk-in shower and round tub in a tower room. Utilizing strong white colors and a combination of the shining Texas sun and the brilliance of properly placed electric lighting creates a bathing experience that is truly a pleasure.
