We have been visiting Santa Barbara for years. When our kids were still home, it was our annual Spring Break trip. More recently Steve and I have enjoyed the Santa Barbara County wine areas as well. We love the weather, the food, the creativity, and the overall vibe. We stopped on our way back from the Wedding Celebration last weekend and weren’t disappointed. Let’s take a look at the Collected Style Edit-Santa Barbara.
The tiny hamlet of Summerland has always been a great stop for antiques and vintage. In recent years, it has added another layer of interest, several home decor, and garden shops. We were instantly transfixed with Shane Brown’s (Big Daddy’s Antiques) latest venture the Well. You can read more about Big Daddy’s here SHANE “BIG DADDY BROWN” THE MAN BEHIND THE EMPIRE-MONTECITO JOURNAL and here BIG DADDY’S ANTIQUES You also follow the Well on Instagram here.
Shane has painstakingly restored the former grounds to home decor and garden lovers Eden, Steve and I found a lot of inspiration for our own backyard garden. Our heads have been spinning since we left.
Love the small tables made from reclaimed stone and iron. Steve was dying to bring one home.
Steve and I both thought we could take this green house right home with us!
Great root console table and large-scale art!
Tons of beautiful pots and fountains made from old European animal watering tanks.
Love the hanging pendant!!
Loving the blue stoneware bowls, so pretty.
Another favorite shop in Summerland is Botanik. You can follow them on Instagram here. I found some pretty napkin rings and napkins that I brought home.
They always have a wonderful selection of outdoor plants as well.
The last time I was in the area Porch was in Carpinteria I believe. Now all of these wonderful shops are within walking distance of each other.
One more home decor shop that I never miss is the fabulous Rooms and Gardens in downtown Santa Barbara.
We had a wonderful four days away. It would take me days to include all of the fabulous food, wine, and fun we had. I am sorry I got this out late today. Thanks for reading the Collected Style Edit-Santa Barbara. Have a great week. I will be back on Thursday joining the Contessa for Ageless Style.
