The Santa Barbara Magazine spread above reprises the chic vibe of 70s California in a beguiling 21st century way. I can almost hear my very first LP, the Beach Boys’ Endless Summer album wafting in the background. Once upon a time, summers did seem endless; basking at the beach, kicking back on bean bag chairs (updated like these hand-stitched leather ottomans), riding bikes all around and shopping for “love beads.” Fiery pink, coral and golden sunsets, gorgeous backdrops for silhouetted palm trees create the perfect endless summer sunsets.
Santa Barbara Magazine Coast Village Road. Around town… Montecito style!
MAISON K is featured in the magazine’s December article, “Around Town – Coast Village Road,” alongside our fellow shop owners and restauranteurs. Here are some highlights of what makes our neighbors so special:
As you can see, the variety of businesses is a collection of tasty flavors and worldly styles. And, of course, we’d add MAISON K’s treasures from Paris, Morocco and India to the list!
Always winter white, shown left is, what is for me, the most beautiful architectural detail bar none. Meticulously hand-carved plaster work in a endless variety of pattern, covers courtyards, archways and walls in Moroccan Palaces, riads and homes. Closer to home than a trip abroad, The Metropolitan Museum of Art has a phenomenal collection of art and architecture from the near East in The Met Islamic Art Exhibit.
Astier de Villatte’s handmade dinnerware from Paris is unique and timeless. The French ceramics maker creates every piece by hand, in dark terracotta clay, then finishes each item with a milky white glaze.
