Interior and Exterior Design of Santa Barbara Court House

Apr 3, 2010

On a weekend trip to Solvang, CA, I, along for the ride while my husband road a century, enjoyed the quick stop in beautiful Santa Barbara. Built in 1929, the quintessential architecture Santa Barbara is known for, echos throughout the Santa Barbara Court House.

This interior shot of the ceiling in the Mural room, shows the paint technique referred to as “Dutch-Metal”, which means the artist mixed zinc and copper to get that “gold” effect. The wrought-iron chandelier weighs over 1000 pounds.

This shot is of a beautiful little side door, even a “servant” entrance is treated as part of the whole. Overlooking the details was not an option, unlike some modern-day buildings.
