Quality Photo resources for designing Spanish style homes + landscapes
The Creating Spanish Style Homes® website and blog is a place where you will find my latest projects, designs and newly uploaded photos. Hopefully they will inspire… and help guide you through your home and landscape design process.
Hi my name is Jeff. I launched this new website to update and modernize an older site, and to consolidate my earliest content from almost 2 decades ago. Here, I also re-introduce you to my design aesthetic and consulting services for it.
Scroll through these examples of Spanish style homes, sheds and landscape designs by Jeff Doubét.
Since I posted this Spanish shed design on social media several years ago, it has garnered a lot of interest for more info. This has encouraged me to schedule a future blog post to share more images of it. Stay tuned!
For now, please consider the photos on this page as basic placeholders. Future posts will include more of each project.
I really enjoy helping clients design their Spanish interior spaces. These examples are for a small Spanish style home in Montecito, CA. Changing the design styles a bit from room to room made the overall home have a warm and cozy look and feel.
Shadows of a clover leaf pattern are cast from a Spanish style pendant light. The reflections were an unexpected delight within this arched ceiling in a small hallway of this small Montecito, California home.
Authentic Santa Barbara Sandstone steps were hand-chiseled for a redesigned approach to this split level Spanish home in Santa Barbara, CA.
I look forward to sharing the BEFORE photos of these homes.
Casa Corazon (project above), was designed and built with a custom decorative Secret Garden Arch. Embedded with Spanish tiles, I will one day post more photos of how it came to be.
A tile roof installed on a thick wall and double gated entry was designed for this Hacienda style project in Montecito, CA. This type of structure can add mystery and intrigue when approaching a courtyard home. It also provides privacy and security.
Creative use of decorative Spanish tiles embedded within the exterior stucco was incorporated into this Spanish home in Santa Barbara, CA.
Patio hardscape designs for Spanish homes and landscapes often include red brick.
Spanish home design previews
A three story Spanish style duplex designed and built in the hotel district of East Beach – Santa Barbara, CA. Starting as a tear down, I will always remember when the owner and I stood on the roof of his fixer house, surveying the potential views- just before I began concept renderings.
Above: A Jeff Doubét award-winning Spanish style home in Santa Barbara. This has always been a favorite project. It was a “flip” done on a tight budget. Using Santa Barbara colors and classic building materials really brought the character out from a house that already had good bones.

Jeff Doubét Spanish home designs, photos and drawings
I always to try to make my artistic, hand drawn renderings tell a story. From a practical standpoint, they are used to propose a tone, vision and design for an upcoming project. On a more meaningful note, I want my client and their family to enter the story, visualizing themselves living there.
Home owner and Spanish home designer collaborations
These concept drawings can also become a wonderful starting point for collaborations with a variety of talented teams. Independent architects, structural engineers, general contractors and the artisan trades.
I believe classic homes of the future can be designed and built during our generation. I think the best designs that stand the test of time are developed as collaborations. It’s usually a client who has a good eye for quality things, and the teams they assemble around them.
