FROM THE EDITORIAL DIRECTOR
One reason our town is so oft celebrated for its beauty (aside from the obvious breathtaking topography) is that our smart city planners of yore made a conscious effort to be different. Unlike in most American cities, you will not see large billboards, towering buildings blocking the vistas, and a mishmash of architecture. Our buildings stay within a strict design code. With those restrictions comes an authentic Old World aesthetic that is so rare in this day and age. Back to basics seems to be the trend. Beautiful things made well are being celebrated in this mass-produced, buy-on-every-street-corner world we live in. With our town as an example of Old World design still packing a powerful punch, people are excited about going back to their roots. With farmers markets aplenty, the organic field-to-table trend is an everyday occurrence in our houses and restaurants. We don’t just have an art fair once a year, but every weekend you can stroll Cabrillo Boulevard and see numerous artists touting their creations. And with that mind-set, we set out to celebrate a few key makers, creators, and crafters in our town. Supermodel Erin Wasson is renowned for her catlike beauty, which has graced many a cover, runway, and fashion campaign. But it’s her new fine jewelry collection Wasson Fine (along with her recent move to Ojai) that has captured our attention. She escapes here to get away and recharge, but these parts also inspire her as well as her designs. Wasson showcases fall’s bohemian frocks mixed to perfection with her own jewelry creations in “Finer Things in Life” (page 124). Another creation made here in Santa Barbara are superfood elixers by Sun Potion (“Sun Chasers,” page 146). From the hands and minds of Scott Linde and Nitsa Citrine, the products are sought after by many health enthusiasts, and a new creative venue on State Street is soon to follow. We went to this inspirational couple’s slice of paradise in Mission Canyon to get a glimpse into their world of natural wonder. Women’s Heritage Skillshare is pretty old-school—and that is the appeal to its followers. Happy to go back to a time when you made your own bread and preserves, harvested your own veggies, and collected fresh eggs every morning, this group of Santa Barbara women have started a salon of sorts that hosts workshops focused on homespun tricks of the trade. We profile these very modern mothers who are setting out on their own sustainable paths (“Home Sweet Homestead,” page 152). Speaking of paths, the world of big business seems a world away from the “going back to your roots” mentality. So when financier Calvin Zara bought his personal oasis in Ojai, it was a serious change of direction. Zara created a relaxing utopia (“Secret Garden,” page 134) as a dreamy weekend retreat that he shares with a lucky few. With antique silver and linens piled high, gorgeous gardens full of ripe vegetables, and his artisanal cheeses resting on the antique dining table, it doesn’t get much better. If it all seems otherworldly or from another time, perhaps that's because it is. As one season whirls into the next, this fall issue is full of the harvesters, dreamers, designers, makers, and creators that appreciate the Old World. Maybe we can all learn a lesson from them and take the time to slow down...and enjoy it all.

“I think we collectively discovered the perfect recipe for a fun shoot: Gather all your closest friends and have a dress-up photo party!” says the Los Angelesbased stylist who pulled together looks for “Finer Things in Life” (page 124). “The whole day was a breeze. I put Erin Wasson in fall velvets and smooth silks and draped her over antique rugs. It didn’t look like we were in Ojai at all.”
“It’s not often that you get to work with one of your best friends. I was excited when Erin Wasson asked me to shoot her for the cover story,” says the bicoastal photographer who worked on “Finer Things in Life” (page 124). “We were given an opportunity to pull in a team we both love and respect. Natalie Joos is one of the most talented stylists I have worked with, and makeup artist Silver Bramham has the most impeccable eye for detail.”
“Travel journalism takes me to exciting spots all over the world, but nothing beats getting to come home to Santa Barbara,” says Travelzoo senior editor and local wine writer Gabe Saglie who penned “Vineyard Retreat” (page 58) and “#weliveinparadise” (page 170). “I’ve loved watching the Santa Barbara wine industry grow over the last 15 years, both in quality and reputation. The Los Olivos District, our county’s newest AVA, is added recognition that we can grow worldclass wines here. Throw in a growing number of overnight retreats on many local vineyards, and the quintessential Santa Barbara wine country experience has suddenly become more accessible.”
“I loved talking to both Erin Wasson and Lawren Howell. They are some powerhouse women of fashion for sure—both very different but still trailblazers in their own right,” says the Ojai-based writer who put together “Finer Things in Life” (page 124) and “The Insider” (page 68). “It was fun to talk with Lawren about our Vogue days and laugh about the first time I met Erin when she crashed my birthday party. I love meeting the incredible, interesting people who chose to make Ojai their home.” S A N TA B A R B A R A
“As a designer and in my life in general, the first thing I look for in a relationship, a company, or a product is authenticity. I believe this quality can be expressed in everything we do,” says the Santa Barbara-based contributor who wrote “Sun Chasers” (page 146). “I was introduced to Sun Potion when I became friends with Scott Linde and Nitsa Citrine, and I immediately connected to the honesty they project on a personal and global company level. They are people who bring their authenticity into everything they do.”

A Good EYE
Having always toyed with the idea of opening her own storefront, GLOBAL EYE ART COLLECTIVE owner, potter Kristen Cramer, recently made it a reality with the help of
her friend, interior designer Wanda Mills. “She found the space,” says Cramer, “and it looked liked a great opportunity for us both.” Situated in a small shopping center in Santa Ynez, one side of the collective houses Cramer’s artfully arranged signature ceramic sgraffito vases, vessels, and bowls (from $15) plus other locally handmade gifts such as husband Michael’s framed photographs, as well as cutting boards, napkins and tea towels, soaps and lotions, jewelry, and more. On the other side is Mills’s company, Laval, offering interior design consultations, vintage finds, and fabrics for sale. “I have some really fun pieces in the works that are new and different,” says Cramer, who has an art degree from UC Santa Barbara, “lighting that will include more raw textured panels like my petal pendants [pictured above] in new shapes and sizes.” 1095 Meadowvale Rd., Santa Ynez, 805-259-6390.

Clockwise from top right: A selection of wares at
GLOBAL EYE ; “When I’m carving the patterns, I
think of all kinds of things: the speckles are like the patterns on birds’ feathers, the dots and lines are inspired by Native American weavings,” says potter Cramer with her daughter, Vivian.

Wednesday at Carpinteria and Walnut avenues or on Instagram (@thefarmcart_og). Along with her husband, Jason, and daughter, Chandler (named after the organic strawberries her dad used to grow), owner Katherine Lesh—the daughter of Tom Shepherd, one of the original organic farmers in Santa Barbara County—reopened the family produce stand in the same spot years after her parents retired. Acting as a “funnel” for seven local farmers—including Frecker Farms and The Weekend Farmer—the cart is one of the only places in Carp to find local produce, aside from the weekly farmers market on Thursdays, plus it offers a farm box ($18) of lettuce, citrus, fruits, herbs, and mixed veggies on Tuesdays. 5103 Carpinteria Ave., Carpinteria.

Feel-Good Foods The food choices we make are a critical link to environmental crises, and to address this issue, Patagonia created its own food program called PATAGONIA PROVISIONS . The goal is to provide nourishment that is not only delicious and all natural, but also helps build a healthier, more sustainable food chain. “There is a great opportunity—and urgent need—for positive change in the food industry,” says Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard in the new chapter on Patagonia Provisions in his revised and updated book Let My People Go Surfing. “With Patagonia Provisions, our goals are the same as with everything we do—make the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, and inspire solutions to the environmental crisis. But even more than that, Patagonia Provisions aims to do good with the food we produce and the harvesting practices we employ.” The online shop features hiking and camping-friendly foods—smoked salmon, fruit and almond energy bars, buffalo jerky, soup mixes, and more (from $6.50)—sourced straight from organic farmers and eco-friendly companies.

The biggest selling point at the Carhartt Retreat (from $550/night) at CARHARTT VINEYARD , carharttvineyard.com/retreat, is the sweeping view of the Santa Ynez Valley. “We take care of everything—the shopping, filling the fridge, and providing a chef by request,” says owner Mike Carhartt.

Two displaced New Yorkers—Addison Proctor and David Malina—did what a lot of middle-aged men do when they move to California: they started surfing. But when it came time to find beach-ready, “grown-up” apparel, they found themselves at a loss. Rather than complaining about it, they decided to create their own label called SALTURA . With backgrounds in business and design, they set out to build a wardrobe for men no longer in their 20s (they actually design around love handles) that would look as good on the sand as in an office setting. “We knew whatever we created needed to embrace a modern, minimalist aesthetic but also be manufactured as sustainably as possible,” says Proctor. Vetoing mass production in overseas factories, they finally found a woman who’d been producing clothes for Patagonia for 26 years and was eager to help. Every piece of clothing (from $45)—think streamlined board shorts, tailored hoodies, and supersoft, 100 percent non-GMO cotton Ts—is made in California. In fact, everything Saltura sports is made close to the founders’ Santa Barbara homes and a mere 14 miles from their favorite point break. J . B . K . SA LTURA.CO

Students tending YOUTH EFFORT FARMS produce;
planting a garden.
“You’re taught all that in a book, but it’s nothing like when you’re out doing it in the garden.” Now
SPOTLIGHT: Gre en Thi n k in g
Imagine a spike in school dollars without all the constant fund-raising. Imagine kids working in gardens every week and bringing home fresh lettuces they grew. Imagine those greens raising more than $40,000 annually for their school. That’s the concept John Vincent, a general partner at venture capital firm Revel, envisioned when he wanted to give back to the community. Rather than just writing a check, Vincent used his business background to cofound YOUTH EFFORT FARMS with longtime friend Shawn Ricci. The nonprofit creates hydroponic systems in schools where kids tend to at least 24 low-water garden towers on campus. Active parents commit to weekly supervision while students grow, harvest, and sell the greens (currently bunches of arugula, kale, romaine, and butter lettuces) to families, friends, and neighbors—you don’t have to have a student to purchase—via weekly CSA boxes. “You can sell as many as you can—there is no cap,” says Vincent. “The kids make an effort and the community makes an effort.” YEF’s goal is to have 50 percent of student body participation in the CSA, however the minimum for success is 30 percent. Each student is expected to sign up at least one family, even if it’s just their own, meaning parents reallocate their produce budget, buying greens (arguably healthier and below market price) from
kids rather than at the grocery store. Financially, YEF’s goal is to create a recurring revenue system for schools, with net annual proceeds reaching at least $40,000, but depending on participation, that number could be much higher. Vincent took it one step further, creating a separate corporate arm, selling produce to businesses through commercial accounts such as Whole Foods, which ideally will match each dollar earned. Currently, YEF is in the Hope School District, and Vincent hopes to grow to about 12 more schools within Santa Barbara County next year. There is no out-of-pocket cost to any school; the Vincent Family Trust finances the set-up when a school gets the green light. “So far, we’ve had no schools say no to this; however, we may say no,” Vincent says, stressing that the support of administration, teachers, students, and parents is crucial to the program’s success. With YEF, 100 percent of proceeds and focus is on education. All grade levels participate—kindergartners help plant the seedlings and older grades transfer the seeds into towers and later harvest the produce. Kids simultaneously learn nutrition, mathematics, and science, truly getting the basics of textbook topics such as germination and photosynthesis. Adds Vincent: “You’re taught all that in a book, but it’s nothing like when you’re out doing it in the garden.” J . B . K .

The Towbes Group celebrates 60 years of doing good

This year marks the 60th anniversary of THE TOWBES GROUP —a name that strikes chords of success and charity within Santa Barbara. Under the leadership of Michael Towbes, a man who’s served on 33 boards and has had the rare distinction of being both volunteer and philanthropist of the year, the team maintains his steady mantra of “Give Where You Live.” When it comes to choosing where to give, Towbes, 87, says, “We look at where the impact will be, staying almost entirely focused on Santa Barbara, as we can see where it goes.” To date, The Towbes Group has developed two million square feet of commercial space, including Riviera Park and Coast Village Square, and 6,000 residential units. For every residential move-in, a donation is made to a local charity, plus each new resident receives a reusable grocery bag, which eliminates the use of 1,000 plastic bags over a lifetime. In the spirit of sustainability, the business has become green certified—their slogan “Scan When You Can” has helped them achieve 85 percent waste diversion by using less paper, and employees have access to the company’s electric “Towbie” car for daily errands. “We’ve filled a need for housing between Ventura and Santa Maria,” says Towbes. “We’re very conscious of the impact of our projects and neighborhood concerns.” Staying focused on that wisdom, the Towbes Group targets social work and education to help keep people employed and off the streets, awarding grants twice a year to support community organizations. Personally, Towbes and his wife, Anne, are constantly giving to organizations they believe in. For his 80th birthday, they opted out of a traditional party and instead threw a fundraiser bash for the Granada Theatre. And there’s no telling what this anniversary or future milestone celebrations will bring. “Over the years, our philanthropy has been very public. Being public about what you do may encourage other people to give,” says Towbes, who urges people to do what they can, be it volunteering or giving dollars and cents. “Santa Barbara has been very good to me and I want to leave it better than I found it.” J .

LAWREN HOWELL at THE OJAI VALLEY INN & SPA .
For the past year, LAWREN HOWELL , contributing freelance editor for Vogue, has claimed the everevolving small town of Ojai—a community she finds captivating and full of surprises—as home for herself and her family (husband Kristopher Moller and kids Louisa and Peter). “Ojai has a great beauty that is inspiring on a daily basis,” she says. “It also seems to attract a lot of people with independent and adventurous spirits, and we love that!”
day dressing has changed since moving to Ojai. Part of good style is being appropriate, so I’m not wearing here what I would wear in Paris. I like to juxtapose masculine with feminine, old and new, rough and soft in the way I dress, and I’m really aware of balancing textures and proportions. For example, if I wear a bohemian top, I will balance it with a tailored pant or skirt.
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT WEST COAST FASHION? I think that people often
mistake California style for being just a pair of jeans and a T-shirt, but in recent years that has been proven not to be the case. The West Coast is full of

interesting designers. I especially love Co, Rodarte, DOEN, Sacai, the punkish brand Libertine, and The Elder Statesman for that California-luxe surf-culture look. West Coast fashion feels like a creative frontier; most of the companies are independently owned and more free to do what they want. They are complete originals and not afraid to crosspollinate into other art forms. I find them to be really inspiring.

Legacy Of Luxury
WHO Designer/fashion brand consultant Marin Hopper
from Hollywood royalty—the daughter of actor/photographer/artist Dennis Hopper and actress/author Brooke Hayward, granddaughter of mega-agent/producer Leland Hayward and silver screen star Margaret Sullavan, not to mention her step-grandmother was best-dressed icon Slim Keith.

WEAR Steeped in style from birth, Hopper
has taken her work with Italian luxury brands Tods and Hogan—and her own sartorial family history—to create Hayward Luxury, an accessories collection of handbags, and soonto-be launched Hopper Goods, a menswear line featuring clothing, sunglasses, and other masculine accoutrements inspired by her late father. NORTH OF HOLLYWOOD “I grew up going to Santa Barbara in the 1970s with
my mom and staying at the San Ysidro Ranch, which I still love. At one point, when I was 13, she decided to buy a house there, and for a time, I kept my horse at the hotel's stable. I loved it then and still do now—very luxurious, but still with that seductively down-to-earth touch. Just rugged enough to enjoy the outdoor nature of the beautiful surroundings of Santa Barbara.” G I N A T O L L E S O N
CINEMA CHIC “The fall 2016 collection was named ‘This is It’ from the
neon sign of the same name in Dad’s movie Blue Velvet. We had a lot of velvets in the fall collection, including brocades—some in the shade of blue from the movie—but also inspired by the palette of Isabella

With more than 20 years of honing in on the best possible products and treatments for your skin, Lisa Pfeiffer, owner of PEACHES SKIN CARE , has mastered exactly what you need to do to make your face glow. The signature facials (from $89) at her Santa Barbara salon (she has two more locations in Ohio and Long Beach) are more like a regimen to uncover the cleanest, purest, freshest-looking skin. Clients—everyone from teenagers learning about hygiene and people with acne and scarring to elderly men and women—come in for “a resultsoriented facial,” says Pfeiffer. “We not only clean your skin and change it from the inside out, but we educate you.” By incorporating organic products—for example, Bragg’s apple cider vinegar is used to tone the skin—as well as exfoliants, cleansers, and masks that Pfeiffer created specifically based on scientific studies, her facials are individually tailored and include a deep cleansing, microdermabrasion, extractions, retinol or Co-Q10 oxygen treatments, microcurrent muscle work, and more. Plus, Peaches is one of the few salons in the area certified to use microcurrent gloves. Worn by the aestheticians as they pull up various facial muscles, the gloves emit low-level electrical currents to stimulate and recharge tissue. “We have helped women with Bell's palsy and countless clients with severe scarring and muscle loss,” says Pfeiffer. For anyone planning to embark on the process, Pfeiffer is

happy to put together a custom cost-efficient package, which can also include other services such as waxing and lash/brow tinting. “From your first facial, you will see results,” says Pfeiffer, who notes that by following their “prescription” sheet, most clients see a remarkable difference within six months, sometimes less. “Like a workout regime, you will only continue to see healthy, brighter, firmer skin.” 6 E.

To reinvent this rare 1960s Lutah Maria Riggs Japanese-style home in Montecito, designers DIEGO MONCHAMP and RYAN BROWN of BROWN DESIGN GROUP carefully took it down to the studs. Working with their team’s lead designer, Erin McClelland, and DD Ford Construction, they knocked down nearly every interior wall to modernize the house for a young family. Maintaining the original footprint, they created an airy indoor-outdoor kitchen by combining what was previously two rooms separated by a masonry fireplace. There they designed what Monchamp calls “a good example of a double island,” where one is extended with butcher block for cooking and prep so that the main island, complete with bar stools, can exist with an uninterrupted flow for entertaining. For an interior palette of coastal-inspired blues and complementary grays, the designers infused sophisticated yet playful touches throughout— from hot-air balloon wallpaper in the nursery to vintage tennis rackets hung above a bed to whimsical shapes in the living room. Layering in graphic pillows and an Alpaca throw on the daybed adds texture while other key pieces, such as a custom live-edge dining table, lend “an organic feel to an otherwise straight-laced room.” Outside, landscaper Rob Maday surrounded the exterior with Asian-inspired grasses and rocks—further homage to the home’s design roots. Adds Monchamp: “It looks similar to the original, but we made it much cooler.” 303 Palm Ave., Santa Barbara,

Interior designer LESLIE LUNDGREN spent years working at Christie’s auction house and doing visual merchandising for Williams-Sonoma before branching out on her own. With clients spanning the coast between Santa Barbara and San Francisco, Lundgren says her style ranges from “cottage to castle,” mixing low and high in fresh ways. “My design philosophy combines new furnishings with antiques, family heirlooms, and collected treasures that all speak to a unique and beautiful story of the people that occupy the spaces,” she says. Based in Montecito, Lundgren bought a 1964 house that most people wanted to tear down. Instead, she saw potential past the shag carpet and algae-covered pool, envisioning a family home that reminded her of California’s Cliff May ranch homes iconic to that era. After several updates—and many trips to the San Ysidro Ranch for garden ideas—Lundgren’s home now inspires friends and clients with its modern-yet-classic global signature style. 415-203-9278. J .

Michelle Ramirez lived two years abroad in Bahrain, educating herself on culture, handicraft, and sourcing before opening up her Ventura storefront, PASSPORT HABITS . “Bartering as a woman in souks was my favorite thing to do, yet it was hard to break down walls as the men there are used to dealing with other men,” Ramirez says. “I was taken under the wings of Mr. Hamood, my Persian carpet guru, and together we would sit with tea and he would educate and quiz me daily.” Now, Ramirez has the answers, the goods (from carpets to tribal textiles to Tunisian towels), and the backstories for customers looking for that perfect worldly rug or exotic home accessory. 1987 E.

Aging wine under water is a trend Italian-born Emanuele Azzaretto has been following since learning of a 2010 discovery of 162 bottles of champagne in a shipwreck in the Baltic Sea. Since then, a handful of European wineries have sunk wines off of Spain, Italy, and France, and one Napa Valley winery has done so off South Carolina. “I tried to buy some of these wines and it was never available. I thought, Why not do my own?” says the Santa Barbara resident who, along with Section winemaker Marco Lucchesi, conceptualized the 50 FATHOMS WINE CLUB about two years ago. After building crates in his own garage, Azzaretto, an avid diver, filled them with 900 bottles of Il Bianco—a Central Coast white blend of Marsanne, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, and Viognier—a rosé, a Napa Valley Pinot Noir, cognac, and rum. Then he and his pal Danny Castagnola took them out on Castagnola’s tugboat and dropped them 70 feet into the middle of the Santa Barbara Channel. There, they aged for 12 months before Azzaretto pulled them out at the beginning of July. “I was surprised—and happy—that they survived El Niño and that we got the pressure right for the bottles,” he says. Now, wine club members (memberships start at $350) can obtain access to purchasing the bottles, and a portion of the sales from the rosé is being donated to the Channel Island Marine and Wildlife Institute rescue.

Palatable Paleo Six months after the start of Cynthia Spivey’s foray into the paleo lifestyle (read: lifestyle, not diet), friends consistently commented on her weight loss, glowing skin, svelte physique, and enthusiastic energy. I was one of many who—desirous of a similar physical transformation—pebbled her with questions: “What is paleo?” “Why does it work?” “How do I do it?” Some of the questions asked of Spivey were easy to answer, others more difficult. Always up for a challenge, Spivey became an expert who not only understands and lives the paleo lifestyle, but can explain it. Thankfully, Spivey condensed her hundreds of hours of research into a book she wishes she had when she started on this transformative path. HOW TO EAT PALEO (WHEN YOU DON’T LIVE IN A CAVE) (from $19.95, Smiling Water Group, available at Tecolote Book Shop, 805-969-4977, tecolotebookshop.com) is an informative, accessible, and practical resource for anyone interested in learning about the paleo lifestyle. In addition to answering the fundamental who, what, and why questions, Spivey also offers the how-to of paleo in the form of 24 beginner recipes contributed by friends in the know (Maili’s tomato ginger salmon anyone?) and additional, trusted resources to learn more.

HAPPY Hour S.Y. Kitchen’s Aperitivo celebrates la dolce vita Born and raised in Italy, S.Y. KITCHEN chef Luca Crestanelli grew up with an innate understanding of la dolce vita—“the good life.” In every Italian town, “there’s a city center—a bar, a butcher, a pharmacist,” says Crestanelli, a father of two. “That’s where people gravitate; you know you will find someone you know.” To inspire this sense of community in Santa Ynez, the restaurant hosts an aperitivo hour in the late afternoon, offering small bites with a selection of cocktails, wines, and beers. Throughout much of Europe, aperitivo hour signals a moment when one can pause in the day, gather with friends, and simply enjoy each other’s company. This communality—also the essence of family—is important to Crestanelli. Not only is the sous chef, Francesco, his brother, but the chef’s 22-month-old daughter, Violet, can often be found cruising the kitchen during prep time.
Luca Crestanelli and his wife, Pearl Brouillet, with their daughters,
Taste Work and family go hand in hand. In the fall, Crestanelli’s favorite aperitivo combination is a slice of bruschetta with either an Aperol spritz or an Americano, both classic, lowalcohol cocktails with a bitter orange character and a touch of fizz. In addition to traditional aperitivos, mixologist Alberto Battaglini offers cocktails such as a Back Garden and a pineapple and basil margarita that feature his house-made infusions and bitters. Chef Crestanelli complements these drinks with light nibbles such as salami, cheeses, oven-roasted olives and almonds, and fried artichoke hearts. At other times, guests can enjoy flight nights where wine director Emily Johnston invites local winemakers to discuss their vintages with enthusiasts. Likewise, Battaglini, a whiskey enthusiast, curates whiskey flights, which might even include a tasting of the bartender’s own blend, which arrived in the restaurant from England in early July. The concept of aperitivo hour is one that busy Americans could learn from. At S.Y. Kitchen, “The food is important. The drinks are important,” says Crestanelli. “But you go to a place to be around people you know.” 1110 Faraday St., Santa Ynez, 805-691-9794.

A short plane ride from Belize’s interior brings visitors to San Pedro, the low-key main town on Ambergris Caye. From there, it’s just 15 minutes by boat up along the island’s coast to MATACHICA RESORT & SPA, where the view is all about white sand, azure water, and waves breaking on a spectacular barrier reef. Bright colors liven the exteriors of the resort’s 31 casitas and villas, while their well-appointed interiors are sleekly white and contemporary, with artisanal chests and handcrafts and romantic mosquito netting over the bedsteads. Not surprisingly, activities center on water sports— canoeing, sailing, paddle boarding, and diving. “I’d get a kayak and snorkeling gear and go out to the reef, tie up to a buoy, and snorkel,” remembers a guest. Fresh seafood was another high point. “The restaurant was fantastic, five-star,” he adds, praising everything from fish tacos to the seafood pasta. “Overall, the attention to detail was special.” Rates: From $225/night.

For more than a decade, Francis Ford Coppola maintained
BLANCANEAUX LODGE in a forest reserve in western Belize
as a private family retreat. Since 1993, however, guests have been able to enjoy this luxe 20-room resort, whose thatched-roof cabanas and villas are arrayed along a river and appointed with Belizean furniture, colorful decor, and handcrafted accessories. A three-and-a-half-acre organic garden provides the vegetables and most of the fruit served in the lodge’s restaurants, one highlighting Italian cuisine and the other focusing on Guatemalan dishes. Surrounded by jungle, the resort allows one to totally decompress, while excursions offer the chance to explore the tropical landscape and the area’s Mayan heritage. One recent guest went horse trekking “down a dirt road to an incredible waterfall.” Another day, he traveled to the ruins of Xunantunich, where a pyramid centers an ancient Mayan settlement. “I went to Blancaneaux to be off the grid,” he says, “and it was the ultimate relaxation spot.” Rates: From

Artists involved in the Land Art movement (from the late 1960s to early ’70s) placed themselves outside the traditional art world, creating site-specific works that radically reshaped the natural landscape. Of the few women working in that genre, MICHELLE STUART ’s art is notable for its transitory nature and lack of destructiveness. She’s especially known for unfurling a 460-foot-long paper scroll over a cliff into the Niagara River where Niagara Falls flowed centuries earlier, and leaving the scroll to degrade with the elements. But Stuart defies easy categorization; while her work retains its earthly focus (using seeds, feathers, and stones gathered on travels), over time it has become more intimate in scale. Always seeking an evolutionary path, Stuart, now in her eighth decade, currently employs photography as her primary medium. Critically acclaimed and exhibited worldwide—including a 2014 show at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art—Stuart, a part-time resident of Carpinteria, is represented by Marc Selwyn Fine Art in Los Angeles as well as Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects in New York.

For 37 years, the SANTA BARBARA CHAMBER ORCHESTRA has been an integral part of Santa Barbara’s cultural repertoire, captivating audiences with classical music performances conducted since 1983 by renowned music director Heiichiro Ohyama. SBCO’s 2016-2017 season is offering concertgoers the opportunity to savor tango music in the historic mural room at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse on November 15; celebrate the holidays with baroque music in the sanctuary of All Saints-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church on December 13; and enjoy a romantic Valentine’s Day at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, where Maestro Ohyama is demonstrating his virtuosic talent on the viola next February 14. SBCO’s four Lobero Theatre concerts will feature exciting solo turns by guest pianists Wendy Chen and Alessio Bax and violinist Paul Huang. Already known for its family education program that provides free concert entry for students, SBCO is poised to launch an innovative outreach program— Classical Connections—to study the effect of live music on individuals suffering cognitive or neurological impairment.

Curtain CALL All eyes—and bodies—will be on stage when dancer and creator Kerrilee Gore and Zen Arts bring their mesmerizing show WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT to the Lobero Theatre from October 20 through 22. Guests literally sit on the stage, which is transformed into a curated lounge space with chairs and sofas, for this intimate theatrical experience (tickets from $44, seating is limited) that combines burlesque, cabaret, multimedia, acrobatics, and aerial performing. The choreographer and dancers have worked on tours with performers including Britney Spears
and Madonna, while Depeche Mode founder Martin Gore (Kerrilee’s husband) contributed to the music. Gore calls the show dark, sexy, quirky, dreamy, fun, and edgy. “I was inspired by David Lynch, Alfred Hitchcock, and Pulp Fiction,” she says. “It is my hope that you leave yourself at the door and enter the world of When the Lights Go Out. It is what happens inside your dreams, between the sheets, and in the secrets that we keep.” 33 E. Canon Perdido St., Santa Barbara, 805-963-0761.

Wonder WALLS Given artist DAVID FLORES ’s eminence in the world of skateboard graphics, he could be customizing decks into his 90s. But a bigger canvas to display his talent beckoned; now Flores, 44, is one of the most sought-after muralists worldwide. Along the way, he’s also managed to apply his signature style—often described as stained glass—to toys: Disney’s Mickey Mouse, Medicom’s Be@rbrick and Kidrobot’s Dunny (his version ended up in the Museum of Modern Arts’s collection), and other products. Santa Barbara played a part in Flores’s artistic evolution; he studied with Ed Inks at Santa Barbara City College and did stints at Shorty’s Skateboards and the Santa Barbara Independent. You can see his work (Max from Where the Wild Things Are) on the back side of the now-shuttered Church of Skatan on Gutierrez Street. His mural commissions often depict important cultural icons (William Shakespeare, Albert Einstein, Frida Kahlo), and Flores recently returned from Mexico City, where he completed a multistory mural of the country’s national hero, José Maria Morelos.

Hail to the Chiefs An election year when public discourse is focused on who will become the next President of the United States is an opportune moment to gain a perspective on the high office’s prior occupants. Luckily, a large portion of that information (117,666 documents and counting) is available from THE AMERICAN PRESIDENCY PROJECT website. Conceived in 1999 when John Woolley, professor of political science at UC Santa Barbara, and Gerhard Peters of Citrus College constructed an online document resource for students in Woolley’s American presidency course, the project’s website—which receives roughly 10,000 hits each day—has become the definitive online nonpartisan source for presidential documents, including inaugural addresses, proclamations, executive orders, convention speeches, radio addresses, televised speeches, and debates. The task of maintaining the website is such that neither Woolley nor Peters has had time to post the numerous awards and accolades their American Presidency Project has garnered. It’s a nice problem to have. L . D . P . P RES IDENCY.UCS B.ED U S A N TA B A R B A R A

It was an astonishing act of recycling, an incredibly imaginative solution to what was basically a civic bureaucratic issue. In 1937, when Santa Barbara’s abandoned post office building was about to be sold, artist Colin Campbell Cooper proposed instead that the glorious Italianate structure, built in 1912, be turned into a museum. It took four years for his suggestion to become reality, but on June 5, 1941, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art opened its doors. This year, SBMA celebrates its 75th anniversary, and once again, it is seizing the opportunity to restore the building and envision the future. From the very first exhibition of 140-plus works—“Painting Today and Yesterday in the United States,” which included pieces by Winslow Homer and Edward Hopper, as well as the popular Buffalo Hunter—the institution’s ambitions were obvious. “The founders were worldly, sophisticated, passionate about art, and well traveled,” says Larry Feinberg, SBMA’s Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Director and CEO. “They took it on themselves to create a museum with an international perspective. They were not out to build a regional museum or to focus on California art.” Early on, patrons such as Wright Ludington and Katharine Dexter McCormick, among others, donated works that formed the core of a wide-ranging collection—Greek and Roman antiquities; ancient Chinese, Thai, and Cambodian sculptures; drawings and prints by modern European and American masters like Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso, Marsden Hartley, and Joseph Stella; and a number of important Impressionist paintings, including several by Claude Monet. McCormick also contributed the funds for a new gallery named for her husband, the first of several wings to be added to the original building over the decades. These gifts were later joined by outstanding collections of American art, photography, and works from Asia and India. Equally important were the museum’s visionary directors, beginning with Donald Bear, who set a high bar, notes Feinberg. Bear was followed by Ala Story—“one of the first women directors, who also brought great knowledge of the international art world.” In the 1960s, Tom Leavitt, who came from the Pasadena Museum of Art, further enhanced SBMA’s reputation. Says Feinberg, “It’s very fortunate for a museum in a city of this size to attract people of that stature and intellectual curiosity. It separates Santa Barbara from other beach towns of the West Coast. This is an extremely vibrant cultural community.” Over the years, the museum expanded several

times, adding the Preston Morton and Sterling Morton wings in 1961 and 1962, the Alice Keck Park Wing in 1985, and the Jean and Austin Peck Wing in 1998. Each addition had been designed independently, however, and a survey a couple of years ago of the roofing and mechanical systems revealed problems. The museum board took the opportunity to address the issues of the aging facility by initiating widespread structural and seismic renovations that would improve both the building and the experience for the visitor. A $50 million capital campaign is under way, and phase one of the renovation has already begun while the museum remains open and accessible. “We’re solving some age-old problems,” says project manager Gregg Wilson. “This is the first time we’ve been able to treat the building as a single structure.” The initial phase, scheduled to take 18 to 22 months, involves the McCormick wing and the lower level of the museum, which, though out of sight of visitors, is crucial for the ability to receive, store, and transport art. “There are some 28,000 works in the collection,”
he adds. “Better storage equals quicker access. We’ll be able to rotate works more easily and frequently.” The museum will also be able to show some larger pieces of contemporary art. Mechanical systems—temperature, humidity, lighting—will all be brought up to state-of-the-art quality, and in keeping with an emphasis on sustainability, the project is aiming at a high LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating. “It’s skillfully crafted to keep within the El Pueblo Viejo guidelines,” says Wilson, noting that from the outside, hardly any changes will be visible. The overall footprint of the museum will remain the same, yet about 14,000 square feet will be added, including new galleries for contemporary art and photography, and expanded space for the growing Asian collection. Phase two will focus on the original post office building, encompassing familiar Ludington Court and a new circulation pattern that will make it easier for visitors to go from gallery to gallery. The finished project will include a new park entrance, inviting

staircases to upper levels, and a rooftop pavilion as well as an expanded education center. “We emphasize that this is not about expansion,” says Feinberg. “Eighty-five percent of the costs are on unglamorous but absolutely necessary things. But as long as we’re going to all that trouble…what can we do to make it a better museum for the community? Finally the public will get to see the full range of the collection.” He points to works that will be on view permanently—including a contemporary sculpture by Anish Kapoor and important pieces of Latin American and 19th and 20th-century American art. “It’s important to have gallery space for growth areas,” he adds, as well as the ability to stage larger exhibitions like Vincent van Gogh and Mark Rothko shows that are being considered for the future. In the meantime, the museum has been celebrating its 75th anniversary since the spring and is holding a fundraising gala at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse with proceeds to go primarily to the education program. Says Feinberg, “It will be elegant…but fun!” ●

A love affair that started off as an innocent camping trip turned full-on when Erin Wasson bought an older Spanish cottage in the heart of Ojai. “I’m a Texas girl. I like big, open spaces and nature. I was missing that feeling of community that you most definitely get living in a small town. I moved to Ojai a year ago,” she says, smiling, “and it has changed me. I have a place to grow my ideas. Ojai affects how I live and work and the way that I design. It has allowed me the space to create. “At the end of the day, I’m a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl. But add on the extra touches of a good handbag, shoes, and some jewelry, and you have the whole package,” says Wasson. “It’s the nuance of accessories that tells the story of who the woman really is. I am consistently drawn to that.” Creativity has always been Wasson’s driving force. She credits her design endeavors with maintaining her stamina in the modeling world. “I came up in the industry when models were to be seen and not heard. I confused lot of people,” she laughs. “I came out of the gate very opinionated, with a lot to say. I have a voice.” Accessing and acting on her creativity helped Wasson blur the lines drawn for the models of her time. Not content to work solely as a model, about 10 years ago, Wasson got a chance to branch out when her friend, designer Alexander Wang, asked her to create the jewelry for his runway show. “I started making these diamond body chains,” she says. “That was the inception of Low Luv, my costume jewelry company.” Low Luv became a successful brand and served as Wasson’s training ground, teaching her the basics of production, manufacturing, and sales. It helped her to understand what it takes to have a product on the market. “After seven years of doing costume jewelry, I evolved,” she says. “I wanted to get back to the intention of what making jewelry represents for me: to create something that was less disposable and trend driven, with a sense of permanence and longevity attached to it.” Today, Wasson has returned to what she loves about jewelry—working with gold, silver, and stones— through Wasson Fine and rediscovering the romance of working with elements that have staying power. “I am making jewelry that inspires me—wearable pieces that dance a fine line between femininity and edginess,” she says. ”It’s a reflection of who I am.” Living part-time in Ojai helps Wasson achieve the perfect mind-set for inspiration: “I always say, ‘The second I turn on to the 33 freeway, my whole life changes.’ I joke with friends that I can literally feel the cells in my body cooling out and suddenly, I can breathe again!” ●

Chances are he’s also going to serve you homemade yogurt with fruit from the garden or a bowl of gazpacho made with handpicked yellow tomatoes. While living and working in finance in Beverly Hills, he transformed the top of a neighboring six-car garage into a green roof with container gardens and citrus trees. Constantly looking for ways to make things better, the single dad of two teenagers admittedly “freaked out” when his daughter was set to enter Beverly Hills High and began to search for real estate elsewhere. After he combed through homes from Irvine to Santa Barbara, it was a dilapidated property in Ojai that caught his eye, both as an investment and a major change of pace. “I don’t know what got into me…but I immediately wanted it,” Zara says, adding that he initially planned to fix up just the main house for his family and find tenants for the smaller dwellings, while establishing a garden. “I wanted to make sure my kids were not spoiled and have a good sense of sources— where we’re getting things from.” But as Zara got his hands into renovating, he realized the potential for this compound surrounded by lavender and lemon trees. He started obsessing

over design details in both the main house and the four cottages. Being a carpenter, he was able to work quickly, renovating within one year, salvaging the 1898 home’s original character and history while updating each structure. “I can’t fix anything half-heartedly,” he says. “This took on my whole entire life.” In the end, he created the Thacher House—named after its original architect Edward Thacher (plus, it’s located on Thacher Road near the eponymous school)—where guests can spend weekends in a gorgeous dwelling, sharing Zara’s passion for organic living. Born in Baghdad, Zara lived in Athens and New York City—“major hubs of humanity” as he calls them—before coming to California. He learned to cook from his parents and started making furniture at the age of 16 when his family needed something to sit on. In Ojai, he didn’t want his guests to have to spend huge sums to stay nor did he want any element to feel corporate. Simple principles and Old World traditions are still part of his family’s daily life and what guests experience firsthand. “It’s not a hotel, I call it a secret garden,” he says. “People are coming to be home away from home.” The cottages are full of handmade furniture mostly from reclaimed wood (the tables in the carriage house are made from former siding), along with pieces found at auctions and estate sales. Corners are filled with artwork, antiques, and old books. Organic bedding is hand washed and line dried in the sun. Table linens are vintage and heirloom and never cleaned
with or touched by chemicals. Meals are served on china with crystal and sterling silver—which Zara says was intended for food as it does not change the taste and keeps a proper weight on the fork. Guests often hire Zara as a personal chef, which he jokes is “kind of like having the parties I always had, cooking and entertaining, now they’re just paying me to do it.” Mealtime, Zara says, should be more than just a sandwich, but rather a sit-down affair that’s visual and tasteful. His five-course dinners are made with organic produce and products from local farmers who have become friends. “In the grocery store, you’re alone with your phone and your basket and the cashier maybe says hi, but with a farmer, it’s walking through the gardens and trees, seeing what’s ripe, buying only what you need, and having conversations,” Zara says. “This leads to a real, proper life.” Between working from home (he still has his day job) and being with his kids, Zara tends to his own garden every day, growing everything from tomatoes and beans to arugula and watermelon. He now makes his own goat cheese and yogurt, which has helped eliminate his lactose-intolerant kids’ allergies. This type of living and learning has been life altering for his family as well as his guests, who can pitch in by milking the goats, picking fruit, or even making soap. Anyone who comes to Zara’s secret garden is bound to gain everyday wisdom from someone bold enough to change up his whole life. ●

SCOTT LINDE and NITSA CITRINE at
their MISSION CANYON home.
Scott Linde and Nitsa Citrineâ€™s passion for organic tonic herbs and medicinal plants have informed their line of superfoods and life in Mission Canyon
Founded in 2010 and based in Santa Barbara, Scott Linde’s transformational food company Sun Potion offers wild-crafted organic tonic herbs, medicinal plants, and superfoods designed to be life enhancing. Linde, with his partner and creative director, Nitsa Citrine, promotes the philosophy that nature provides an abundance of everything we need for health, beauty, and wellness. “We want you to feel amazing” is their tag line, and this Mission Canyon-based couple walks the talk. WHAT FUELED YOUR PASSION FOR HEALING HERBS AND CREATING SUN POTION?
When I was first introduced to tonic herbalism more than 10 years ago, I was blown away by the sensory experience that this category of plants had to offer. I fell in love with the clarity, ease, and sense of well-being that I received through making these herbs a central part of my daily rituals. Without knowing where it would take me, I became very passionate about finding the best-quality examples of supportive plant allies for my own use. This love affair with plants and tonic herbs later became a vehicle to share these experiences with others.
WHAT IDEAS CURRENTLY INSPIRE YOU MOST?
I am inspired by beauty, design, quality, attention to detail, and offering one’s best to the world. I am excited by the idea that tonic herbs can support people in cultivating more beauty, refinement, gratitude, and sensitivity in their daily lives. These plants work with the body to bring more equilibrium and balance. They both fortify the system as well as make

the body more adaptable to stressors. If people are looking and feeling their best, with even a little support from Sun Potion, the brand is accomplishing its purpose. For me, the ultimate success comes with seeing others strike up a relationship with one or a few of these individual plants. The subtitle of the brand is “Transformational Foods” for a reason. NITSA: These days, I am inspired by beings, actions, and ideas that embody a state of brilliant and expansive love, honesty, sincerity, and courage. WHICH HERBS ARE YOUR FAVORITES AND WHY?
In truth, all 26 of Sun Potion’s offerings are among my favorites—otherwise they wouldn’t be in the line. I personally love Mucuna pruriens—it is the first herb in this family that I was introduced to. Dopamine is an essential key to overall health of the nervous system, and having a healthy supply of it in the body lends itself to feelings of joy, contentment, peace, and bliss. Because it is a plant, the body metabolizes it as food, and naturally knows how to make use of its plant chemistry. We sometimes refer to this product as the “dopamine bean.” I also love astragalus because it is protective, supports healthy circulation, and has an optimistic feeling to it when I have it in my morning tea. NITSA: I am a lifelong lover of pine pollen—an excellent herb for nourishing the brain and creative energy. Pine pollen is a soft, fluffy, golden powder that I love to take as an activating supplement for creative work or to whip up into a little aphrodisiac in the evenings. SCOTT:
WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT RIGHT NOW?
NITSA: Matcha! We are about to release our white dragon matcha that we sourced on our last trip to Japan. This is a delicate, verdant plant grown in harmony with the surrounding forests. Natural farming is used in this tea process—it is a rare and very peaceful, symbiotic way to cultivate plants. Absolutely no pesticides, chemicals fertilizers, or even organic amendments are used.
WHAT DO YOU FEEL ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PRACTICES FOR LIVING A HEALTHFUL LIFE?
SCOTT: One of the easiest and simplest life hacks in the arena of health and wellness is to simply consume the best quality tonic herbs everyday. A small amount (one half to one teaspoon) in my morning tea, coffee, water, etc., is the easiest way for me to feel my best and allow my inner gifts, strengths, and beauty shine. NITSA: Listening to the body, listening to the mind, heart, and spirit. Being receptive to our innate intelligence. ●

Three Santa Barbara women hatched a homespun plan that turned into a series of sold-out workshops, creating a movement that would make Martha proud. Likely, it would even make Laura Ingalls Wilder fist bump them with approval. Ashley Moore, Lauren Malloy, and Emma Moore, an herbalist, animal specialist, and cook respectively, launched Women’s Heritage Skillshare in an effort to teach modern women traditional skills of decades past such as pickling, welding, wreathing, mulling, soap making, and raw baking. Once they realized the topics they wanted to cover were endless, they knew they needed to take it mainstream. “We thought if there’s something awesome, let’s share it with everyone,” recalls Ashley as they first merged their passions and early ideas from foraging herbs to making healthy gummies for kids. “Lauren said, ‘Let’s make it accessible, share a meal, and have others take something to their own homes.’ We thought, at the worst, the three of us will have a great time.” Workshops (which start at $40) began in February, and every single one has sold out so far. The classes pop up throughout the city and valley and aim to bring various elements of the homestead past into everyday life. “It’s easy to glamorize that life, but full-blown homestead is so much work,” says Ashley. “For example, slaughtering animals—that wouldn’t interest people.” By learning simple skills such as making herbal salves, natural face serums, kefir cheese, peach jam, and plant-dyed napkins, the founders educate and

connect people. While skeptics might suggest these workshops are reversing feminism, Ashley reiterates their goal is to empower women rather than send them back in time. “In some ways, it looks like a step backward, but not in a bad way. It’s really a step toward connection,” she says. While anyone these days can walk into a bakery and buy a loaf of bread, they want to teach women how things come together from the beginning. In this spirit, the team is working on a line filled with “helpful things from the homestead”—from aprons to beauty products. For example, herbal, organic skincare will be

sold, along with directions on how to make the product, so when you run out, you can reuse the jar and recreate it yourself, which Ashley says is further “connecting you to what you’re putting on your skin.” Through every Women’s Heritage Skillshare workshop, their aim is to instill confidence along with an appreciation of the past. Simultaneously, the trio is also evoking a sense of sisterhood and effectively slowing people down. Adds Emma: “In our fastpaced society, it’s so refreshing to see women carve out this time for togetherness.” ●

Polo in Paradise DELFINA BLAQUIER and NACHO FIGUERAS at the SANTA BARBARA POLO & RACQUET CLUB .
S A N TA B A R B A R A
On a warm summer evening, more than 300 guests gathered at the SANTA BARBARA POLO & RACQUET CLUB for a celebration of the clubâ€™s Polo magazine in partnership with Santa Barbara Magazine. Featured guest Nacho Figueras spoke and signed copies of his new novel, High Season (Hachette), while other famed local polo players rode on the field. A well-dressed crowd sipped Veuve Clicquot champagne, Summerland Winery vintages, and Jardesca summer cocktails and dined on passed appetizers from Los Agaves. Near the champagne tower, Revelry Event Designers created outdoor living rooms right on the field, complete with leather sofas, lanterns, and throws. As the sunset gave way to stars, DJ Fab moved people off the grass and onto the dance floor. PHOTOGRAPHS: BLUE CALEEL AND STEVEN SIMON

#weliveinparadise What’s in a name? For winemaker Fred Brander, it’s 10 years of rigorous research and an arduous federal petition process. In the end, the LOS OLIVOS DISTRICT ’s green light earlier this year created Santa Barbara County’s sixth American Viticultural Area (AVA). It recognizes the nearly 23,000 acres’ unique weather and geological conditions for the ability to grow world-class wine grapes. There are four towns within its boundaries—Ballard, Solvang, Santa Ynez, and Los Olivos—and more than a dozen wineries, including the legacy property established by Brander in 1975. The AVA distinction allows winemakers to use the Los Olivos District name on their labels as a way to denote pedigree and better inform consumers; until now, they were limited to more general identifiers like “Santa Ynez Valley” or “Santa Barbara County.” Says Brander, who’s already updated the labels on several of his Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon wines: the AVA “helps bring the whole geography of the valley together.” G A B E S A G L I E
