The Beautiful Homes of Instagram series is open to any homeowner that I feel that can inspire others. It truly goes beyond the interiors of their home as it’s also about their story, their talent and the positive that their presence can bring to us. When I invited Elizabeth D Burns from @edbdesigns and edb designs, I knew she would inspire many of you, but I have to admit that I also feel moved by her approach to design because it’s not only about how the home looks but also how it makes you feel.

As you look at this Santa Barbara home, you can actually feel Elizabeth’s beautiful personality shine through the pictures and I think this is an example we should all pay close attention to. We should create a home that defines who we are. We should bring into our “world” what we truly love, what truly makes us happy – the colors we love, the materials, the textures. Lets make our home become an extension of our energy. We will live better this way. It’s not a trend, it’s not a style, it’s not a label – your home needs to be you and that’s all.

Here, the homeowner shares more about her home:

 

“On a family vacation to California 14 years ago, I fell in love with the Golden State and the outdoor lifestyle it afforded. Four years later, I spent 9 months house hunting in Santa Barbara. My husband and I owned a 1920’s traditional stone and stucco cottage in Connecticut at the time. If anyone had told me that I would be living in a mid-century modern ranch home, I would have never believed them!

When I first stepped through the door, I knew I was home. Unassuming and hidden from the street, I was surprised by high ceilings and the abundance of natural light. It was a warm day in March and all of the French doors were open to the outdoors with the 12 foot curtains billowing in the breeze. At 1900 square feet with mountain and distant ocean views, I fell hard. The house had only been on the market for one day! I called my husband in CT and we put in a bid that day. Thank goodness he trusted my instincts! A few months later, the house was ours.

The previous owners, with the help of San Francisco architect Nick Noyes, had done a masterful job of converting a closed dark 50’s ranch house into a bright and airy jewel. However, there were definite changes my husband and I wanted to make. He wanted more usable outdoor space with all the California bells and whistles…redwood hot tub, gas fire pit, and outdoor shower. By pushing the yard out another 15 feet, we had room for all of that and a small kitchen garden. Jeffrey Gordon Smith, of JGS Landscape Design, helped to make it happen!

I turned my attention to the inside. I embraced the California life style and used organic touches to bring the outside in. I added to my collection of ocean themed art to create a gallery wall. Light engineered oak floors replaced the yellow toned older floors and wall to wall carpeting. We added a skylight in the kitchen and bathroom and another window in the office. While I loved the tiny green mosaic tiles in the bath, I wanted a brighter space and that became another project. And of course there was paint…a whole lot of white paint. Benjamin Moore White Dove has been my go to white for many years. I used it on walls, trim, and the wood plank ceiling. It became the perfect canvas for art.

With the large number of commercial aluminum windows and French doors, AND our ever- growing collection of sea glass, it seemed only natural to name our home The Little Glass House. I’ve completely succumbed to the California lifestyle and this house has launched my career as a stylist and also garnered a feature in Coastal Living magazine. It’s tag line when we bought it was “step into the light.” We certainly have!”

I love creating vignettes indoors and outdoors. I am constantly rearranging things in our home and change pillows and throws with the seasons…. Winter and Christmas is all white, sea glass colors and green in spring and I’ve started using blues a bit in summer (I’ve never been a blue person but I won a beautiful blue pillow and it got me started!) Most of the pillows on the sofa are from Indiebungalow similar here.

Drapes in living room were here when we purchased the house. The French doors are almost 12′ high and the owner purchased simple white drapes and then sewed a piece of linen to the bottom to make them fit the tall ceilings. I was thrilled she left them. I’m usually not one for window treatments but on the occasional day that we get some hot weather, it’s nice to be able to close the drapes to keep it cooler. I will be forever grateful to my husband who insisted we put in central air. We don’t use it often but it’s nice when it’s needed!

Floors throughout are 7.5″ wide engineered oak. The install was a bit of a nightmare in that so many of the pieces were defective with huge knots that we had to pick through every piece and order more. Needless to say, the local company we bought the flooring from is no longer using that vendor! But we are happy with the end result!
