Caliterra 2016 Parade
Dripping Springs Custom Home
The Santa Barbara style is distinctly Mediterranean, and the spirit of Santa Barbara is epitomized in its Spanish Revival architecture. Spanish Colonial Revival is really a catalog of styles, unified by the use of arches, courtyards, form and mass, tile roofs, all derived from the Mediterranean world.
The purity of the Santa Barbara style flows seamlessly into the homes interior finish detail. Finishes are simple yet refined. Natural light floods every corridor of the house accentuating unique features such as the use of weathered and aged wood beams. Tall ceilings create a sense of grandeur and mass. Extensive use of arches, domes, groin vaults, and barrel ceilings compliment the modest clean lines and soft tones of the house. In line with Benjamin Moore’s 2016 color of the year “Simply White”, the exterior stucco façade radiates with a warm white tone offset with the red tile roof and the ebony bronze windows to create the perfect exterior finish contrast.
The heart of the home is the open and inviting great room with its adjoining dining room and kitchen. Each room of this single story floor plan was meticulously designed to provide the most efficient and optimal use of space. The plan includes a distinctive chef’s kitchen featuring professional grade appliances and a hand forged one of kind patina finished steel vent hood. The professionals study includes reclaimed wood wall siding, metal base boards, tall vaulted ceiling with aged timber beams, and abundant light from the serene study courtyard porch, all of which, evokes the feel of a hip New York loft.
