What is the Santa Barbara Style?
Santa Barbara style is an architectural and interior design style characterized by white stucco walls, exposed beam ceilings, red-tile roofs and floors, arcades, and courtyards.
Santa Barbara style borrows heavily from Mediterranean and Spanish-revival architecture, including deep red tones and polished wood textures that contrast with the stark white walls.
Furniture and fittings are typically made of wood or iron, or woven from other rustic materials. Other features include ornate yet rugged lantern fixtures, large fireplaces, decorative carpets running down long corridors, abundant balconies, and warm inviting patios.
