(Stay at) Home & Garden Special Issue 2020
Our Annual Interior and Exterior Design Edition, When Home Means More Than Ever
By Leslie Dinaberg | Published Thursday May 13, 2020
Welcome to the Santa Barbara Independent’s annual Home and Garden special issue.
With all due respect to the very serious health and economic issues facing us right now, finding the joy and beauty in everyday life is also so important — maybe now more than ever, when our worlds have become so much more insular.
As Alice Walker wrote, “Whenever you are creating beauty around you, you are restoring your own soul.”
We hope you’ll find some restoration and inspiration in these pages. From practical stories about solar panels and ADUs to garden advice from experts and creative musings from some of our town’s top architects and designers, there’s a whole lot here to help light your creative spark or just inspire you to dream about a new project.
