Spanish style home and landscape design tips

For those planning, designing and building Spanish style homes and landscapes, professional home designer Jeff Doubét has established this site as a valuable guide- a place where you can find helpful resources, tips and tricks for creating the home of your dreams.

This site will become an expanded extension of Jeff’s consultation services and new book Creating Spanish Style Homes: Before & After – Techniques – Designs – Insights.  The “Consultation in a Book” is available now, exclusively on Amazon.

The highly visual idea book is a collection of designs, techniques and helpful insights for transforming boring plain Jane houses and yards into high quality Spanish style homes and landscapes.

The high quality 240 page book is generously packed with over 1,000 images that include a wide variety of Before & After projects and behind-the-scenes photos of Artisans practicing their craft.

In it, Santa Barbara California based Home Designer Jeff Doubét shares a personal point of view while teaching The Art of Spanish Charm, his basic design principles and theories, expressed through photo-rich stories, drawings and original designs.

For homeowners planning their own remodel, developers, contractors, investors, designers, architects, artisans and do-it-your-selfer’s, the plethora of imagery, combined with thought-provoking concepts and helpful tips are all designed to entertain and inspire.

Whether you are planning a design for a small starter home or a multi-million dollar estate, this book was created to be an encouraging and uplifting Empower Tool- a useful reference guide for seeing the possibilities as you move toward a goal, and the life that you dream.

A message from the Author and Designer Jeff Doubét

For those who seek inspiration from a trusted source, I can tell you I have been in the trenches for 18 years- and with well over 10,000 hours of design time, I have been learning and gaining a direct, first hand perspective on the subject of Spanish Home and Landscape Design.  All the while, I have also been sharing this accumulation of knowledge and helpful information with hundreds of one on one clients over the years.  I hope you will sense that my experience may provide you with a valuable resource that can be accessed within my new book.  Whether you choose to purchase it or not, I definitely want to invite you to check back to this website for new updates, as I create additional, original content for it.

For example, I am currently working on full length articles about design that will augment and expand upon the pages I have already written about within the book.  I have found that providing quality insights leads to additional subject inquiries and recurring, common questions.  I am excited about addressing these, as well as adding short video clips, fascinating insider peeks and reveals I have shot at various project sites.  For the many hundreds of patrons who have already purchased the book, these new tidbits will be designed to be fun and entertaining to watch, and I hope to delight you further with additional on site photos and explanations of the techniques I have already shared.

For those who may not have purchased the book, you can learn more at my product page on Amazon.  This will take you directly to pricing, as well as an 8 page “Look Inside” Preview (and my book reviews!)

As an Amazon affiliate, I want to be transparent with you that I do earn a small commission on my own book, should you purchase from my links within this page.  Your support will be very much appreciated, and it will encourage me to keep focused on adding new quality ideas, products and useful information to this site.

In the meantime, continued Good Luck with your Spanish home and landscape design planning.
