Spanish Hacienda style home design and bathrooms Santa Barbara

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

When I first met this 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 1970s oceanfront fixer home.

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






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 are some of the elements that give this home an authentic Spanish Hacienda feel.






While at an initial consultation, I captured this BEFORE shot the day I first met with the client and their construction team.

The ideas for the transformation began as wish lists were outlined.

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







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


Inspirational ideas: colors, finishes, detailing. Notice how a similar 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

I made this store logo with a photo I shot at another client project. All are featured in my 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.

I created a concept rendering that included ideas for a new entry tower, 2 piece Mission tile roof, plaster entry door surround, carriage doors and a rustic sandstone capped site wall.

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


I devoted several pages within my 240 page "Design Consult in a Book" to show the step by step progress and construction photos for achieve these results.

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

Here is another example of the transformations 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 garden passage- an inviting way to greet guests and guide them to an inner courtyard.

Designing Hacienda homes and landscapes in Santa Barbara and Montecito, California




I specialize in conceptual designs for homes and landscapes.

These can be in the form of floor plans, site plans, elevation sketches, or even lists of suggested changes a property owner can consider for improving their home and landscape.

In Santa Barbara and Montecito there are smaller homes like this one that can become cherished gems when quality ideas and resources are applied toward fixing them up.







For this tired Montecito Spanish fixer, I suggested a new paint theme, architectural details and a mediterranean garden design.

Once the real estate investor and his independent teams including realtor, general contractor and landscape trades were introduced to the improvement ideas, they were quickly implemented and the transformation of the flip was realized.
