Micholyn Brown Designs Montecito Retreat

Micholyn Brown Design brilliantly remodeled a Spanish-style house on Picacho Lane in Montecito. The goal was to simplify and update the architectural elements of the house. Many of the heavy Spanish details were softened, allowing for a lighter, more contemporary Mediterranean aesthetic.



Heavy corbeled beams were simplified and the door heights raised to open up the rooms and provide a more open effect.



The introduction of the over-sized custom steel windows and doors opened up the rooms and added light, which is often missing in most traditional Spanish architecture.



Furnishings are simple and clean and highlight the eclectic art collection, unique accessories and personality of the homeowner.



Micholyn Brown is often involved in coordinating appropriate landscaping and outdoor garden rooms for her design projects.  She takes pride in bringing all elements of  design together to enable a project to reach its full potential.


Micholyn Brown’s award-winning projects have been published in Santa Barbara Magazine, SB Seasons Magazine, Home and Garden, Montecito Magazine and was featured in the book, California Mediterranean by Marc Appleton.
