Your direct Design Guide for creating Spanish style homes and landscapes

Welcome to the Creating Spanish Style Homes ® website, blog and book organized to help you visualize, design and plan that special Spanish dream home you have been longing to create.

My name is Jeff Doubét, and I am your friendly host, guide and creator of these unique design tools.  As an author and professional home designer, I have been specializing in Spanish style homes and landscapes since 2003.

Jeff Doubet Spanish Colonial Revival design renderingThe Spanish home design collection by Jeff Doubét (photo gallery above) is a sampling of various completed projects.  Each initially started as a group of ideas and creative thoughts that were eventually expressed on to paper.

As an artist and the founder of Santa Barbara Home Design, I regularly assemble and compile multiple ideas discussed with clients during my initial consultations with them.  

These hand drawn artistic concept renderings tell a story, which sets the tone and vision for the upcoming project.  These highly visual drawings are the starting point for wonderful collaborations with a variety of highly talented teams of independent architects, structural engineers, general contractors and the artisan trades.

As kids, we often escaped into our favorite story books and imagined ourselves in that special world.  Homeowners and trades alike do the same with my sketches.  They can see themselves building it, and get excited about how they can apply their own talents to be a special part of the group collaboration.

This sketch was the final design rendering that earned an architectural design review board approval for the Park Lane project to move forward.

A patron client is essential to a talented home designer.  Classic designs that stand the test of time are those special homes and landscapes you love to live in, and no doubt will pass on to future generations to enjoy.

With my direct first-hand knowledge and years of experience in the field, I like to share my unique perspective with clients and readers, alike. 

As you explore this site, my hope is that you will feel encouraged about your own project.

If it is within your design budget, please consider purchasing my book and learning from the 240 pages.  Also check back to this website, which will eventually become a substantial supplement to the book.

I hope to write new, insightful articles and creative blog posts.  And I will be sharing more design drawings and beautiful behind-the-scenes photos (and project site videos), as I find time to post them.

And please let me know if you would like to personally collaborate together.  A good percentage of my new clients are those who had first purchased my “design consultation in a book”.

Take care my friends,

Jeff Doubét
