It was love at first sight when I first stepped into the Whispering Rose Ranch’s Mountain Vista, a luxury private estate infused with such charming Spanish Revival architecture, where it overlooks some of the most striking views of the Santa Barbara wine country. The exterior details are mostly historic pieces hand-picked and shipped from Spain by the owner, the famous Horse Whisperer, Monty Roberts.
My inspiration came entirely from the stunning location, that oversized Spanish colonial door, wrought iron windows and earthy terracotta tiles. I created a colour palette of rich berry hues, organic green with softer neutrals to compliment the beauty of the surrounding architectural details. The garnet, berry tone is carry throughout the tabletop design with foraged briars, pinot noir and hand lettered paper suite by Written Word Calligraphy. Mis-matched, earth tone vintage furniture from Found Rental were threw in to counterbalance a potentially formal mood. The soft neutral colours from the soft, draped silk linen, vintage dinnerware and fragrant garden spray rose add a feel of elegance to the overall look.
A final touch of the gorgeous “Black Beauty” is definitely prominent for celebrating at one of the world’s most prestigious ranches.
