exterior rustic-exterior


The design objective for this six acre ocean view parcel in Montecito was to create a literal replication of an 1800's California hacienda. Four adobe structures define the central courtyard while secondary terraces and walled gardens expand the living areas towards the views and morning light. Simple, rustic details and traditional, handmade materials evoke a lifestyle of a distant era.

Design By Pisces
Go to a paint store like Benjaminmoore and borrow there color chips or you can buy a foam board at the dollar store and can a small sample of the paint that you think might be close cut it into fours so you can find what you like . You can also take a picture of it and bring it into the store .

I see you respected the style by not using rain gutters. All the water comes straight down? or you collected somehow before it does?

It falls into the courtyard and then into surface drains. On the back side, it falls into a gravel trench with a drain at the bottom.

Try cedar casing. Can wire brush to add texture. Then paint to match window or new accent color

Retrofit the window with 1" wide reclaimed wood boards for the inside and then add 1"x6" boards over the existing top wood trim and then over existing brick trim on the other 3 sides. What a beautiful exterior in the picture. Some Hanging Garden Trellises would look great hung from the porch beams.
