I have been very fortunate to have enjoyed a great deal of success throughout my 36 year career in real estate. I believe one reason for this is that I’ve always tried to do the best for my clients. As my business grew it became clear that in order to perform at the highest level, I could not do it on my own, so eleven years ago I hired Dina Landi and Sarah Kelly. As the years went by, they grew in their skills and evolved into much more than just assistants. They became vital components to the business and key contributors to our continued success. In recognition of what has become a true collaboration, we have renamed our company Riskin Partners. Individually, we could never execute at the level we do as a team. Together we have closed in excess of $1.2 billion in sales. Our talent pool continues to grow. In addition to the partners our team now includes two associate agents and a skilled marketing staff. It has been a pleasure to watch Dina and Sarah grow into the consummate professionals they are and I am proud to call them my partners. – Rebecca

LETTER FROM THE EDITORIAL DIRECTOR

SPRING HAS SPRUNG IN OUR NECK OF THE WOODS , and while we don’t have to endure any drastic

weather changes to hint at a change of season, there is always something “in the air” that signals a new season. At the moment, the smells of orange blossoms mixed with jasmine permeate the landscape and the noticeably longer days. Amelia Fleetwood is one who ventures outside and enjoys the landscape more than most. She traded a busy Los Angeles rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle—she is the daughter of Mick Fleetwood after all—for a bucolic life in the Ojai countryside (“Write at Home,” page 120). Her backyard includes the most inviting freshwater pool, loads of goats and chickens, and is the perfect spot for her to wax poetic, raise her daughter, and appreciate all this place has to offer. She invites us over to savor her life alfresco. It doesn’t get any more alfresco than a life of a fisherman. Being on the salty water day in and out can be tough, unless you are making your living off of our shores. I always love a day at the harbor, walking along the breakwater with the boats bobbing in the water, watching people buy fresh fish directly from the fishermen (or women for that matter). In fact, our waters are known for producing the world’s tastiest and most prized sea urchin, and there is one woman who is leading the way in this very lucrative business. We profile Stephanie Mutz (“California Gold,” page 126) in her quest to be the best in her field. Switching gears from sea to be seen and what to wear this spring season, all the designers seemingly got the same memo—bohemian! Seventies style is back and in a BIG way. Taking cues from generations past in our community (think Mountain Drive in the days of the hippie communes to the Santa Barbara Bowl back when Creedence Clearwater Revival might have actually played), we conjured up a dream couple to relive the runway’s grooviest fashions in a quintessential ’70s-era Riviera home (“Free Spirits,” page 110). Another haven also on the Riviera is a mid-century jewel resurrected by Hollywood industry veterans Jann and Michael Jaffe. They took an architectural treasure and modernized it to perfection (“Visual Effects,” page 100). Light, bright, and airy, it is the perfect perch to sit and stare at our beloved city below with one of the best views around! Speaking of beloved, spring is also the time when love is in the air and we focus on all things matrimonial. Our special Weddings section (page 133) is chock-full of all you want to know about nuptials in our midst. From what to wear for your themed celebration (beach, valley, garden) to tips from the master designer herself—Monique Lhuillier—we bring you all you need to know about bridal bliss. And that is what spring is all about in our environs—a blissful few months of dreamy sights, sounds, and smells in our otherworldly paradise. Just make sure you take time to smell the (orange blossom and jasmine scented) air....

CONTRIBUTORS KATHERINE STEWART “Stephanie is an intriguing combination of outdoor enthusiast, research scientist, and business person. Her initiative gives me hope that Santa Barbara will continue to contribute meaningfully to the improvement of our environment and fisheries,” says writer Katherine Stewart, who penned the feature “California Gold” (page 126) about the sea urchin industry. Her work has been published in The Atlantic, the New York Times, and more. S.B. MUST DOs Hiking up the San Ysidro trail. • The chapel at the Santa Barbara Cemetery that incorporates arresting murals by the artist Alfredo Ramos Martinez. • Taking the family to the harbor and watching dad and the kids kayak from the safety of Brophy’s upper deck.

BLUE CALEEL “Amelia and Izzy are both

relaxed and gracious hosts, and their home is a haven of iconic music and photography— my two loves!” says Santa Barbara photographer Blue Caleel, who shot Amelia Fleetwood and her daughter for “Write at Home” (page 120). “This is my dream lifestyle—bare feet by the freshwater pool with chickens, dogs, goats, and plenty of sun.” Caleel’s images have graced the pages of C Magazine, Design Bureau Magazine, and others. S.B. MUST DOs Loon Point Beach. • Shooting pool and playing the jukebox at the 1880 Union Hotel in Los Alamos. • Downtime with my boys climbing avocado trees.

RANDALL SLAVIN “I loved doing this shoot for Santa Barbara Magazine because I love this idea of a languid California hippie couple high on the hills overlooking the Pacific,” says photographer Randall Slavin of our fashion feature “Free Spirits” (page 110). His work has appeared in GQ, Esquire, Rolling Stone, and more. S.B. MUST DOs Seeing a concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl. • Getting my teeth whitened at Dr. Finkelstein’s. • Sitting around waiting to spot Oprah.

LISA ROMEREIN “There are many homes that I have shot that are stunning, but Jann and Michael Jaffe’s style really is in alignment with my own aesthetic. I was drawn to their Scandinavian and Belgian style. The sense of space, light, color, and overall feel of each room was so elegant and clean,” says accomplished Los Angeles-based photographer Lisa Romerein of our house feature, “Visual Effects” (page 100). S.B. MUST DOs Walking my dog at Hendry’s Beach without a leash. • Cold Spring Tavern. • Wine tasting and dinner at The Lark in the Funk Zone.

ANGELIA DE MEISTRE-HAMMER “I had the privilege of meeting and getting to know Jennie Stierwalt when I wrote about her a few issues back. We bonded over our shared experiences; namely, our affinity for the 805, similar aesthetic, and leaving Santa Barbara only to return with our significant others. I was struck by her vivacious personality and sense of purpose in making chic style accessible to all with her personal styling firm, Your Best Self Stylist,” says our contributing editor, Angelia De Meistre-Hammer, who wrote about Stierwalt’s nuptials—among other pieces—for our special Weddings section (page 133). S.B. MUST DOs Arcona facials at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa. • Kendall Conrad’s handbags or Intermix’s denim at the Montecito Country Mart. • Getting out into the country—a day trip to Santa Ynez or trail riding at Circle Bar B. 46

WHO’S THAT GIRL?

Josie Canseco This bicoastal California native and only child of All-Star Major League baseball player Jose Canseco can be seen in Elle Girl, Teen Vogue, and was recently named one of the top rising models of 2015 by Vogue. We expect big things to happen for the 5’9” stunner, and it’s always a pleasure to catch someone on the ascent of their career. Canseco joins musician Jack Johnson, megastar Katy Perry, and supermodel Gigi Hadid among our first cover discoveries. Maybe we are on to something? I actually get compared to Gigi Hadid (our Spring 2013 cover girl) at almost every shoot I go to. I agree, we have similar features, but we’re very different people.

of my idols are Candice Swanepoel and Brigitte Bardot. Their confidence and sex appeal are so inspiring and definitely relatable to the type of person I am.

MOVING UP TO THE MAJORS My future goals are to hopefully start working for high-fashion labels such as Chanel and Calvin Klein. I’d also love to work for Victoria’s Secret one day and become an angel—a very high expectation, but I believe I can get there one day if I work hard enough. Those would be reams come true!

Sometimes when I need to get away from the L.A. scene, I’ll pay Santa Barbara a visit for a relaxing pool day with friends. I love the weather and laidback vibe of S.B. Every time I visit, people are so kind and welcoming. I’d definitely consider moving there one day. –G.T.

estled in the Casitas Pass Valley, Rivendell Aromatics’ 3,000 Hass avocado trees and 40-plus acres with 38 varieties of drought-tolerant lavender transport visitors to locales worthy of fictional fodder. The property, where Sandy and Roland Messori grow a wide variety of fruit, herbs, and more, also contains a “Lavarinth” mediation walk. Essential oil (from $3) that can be used to treat insomnia and headaches is distilled on-site and available along with everything from shampoo ($10) to lavender honey ($15). Beneath the rolling hills, brilliant blue skies, and standard sunshine of Ojai Valley, Larry and Christel Rogero have lived on Frog Creek Farm since 2003. There, they have cultivated 500 lavender plants of the Provence (French) as well as Hidcote and Grosso (English) varieties and open the property for U-Pick Weekends during lavender season or by appointment. Also in Ojai, New Oak Ranch grows Ojai Pixie tangerines in its orchard that’s harvested every March, while the property’s 1,400 olive trees produce high-quality oil. –CHARLOTTE BRYANT FROG CREEK FARM 10924 Ojai Santa Paula Rd., Ojai, 805-921-0027.

Looking for a family-friendly vacation alternative? Activities abound at The Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort (from $525 per night), where 50 miles of horseback riding trails, a ropes course, air rifle training, Frisbee golf, tennis, a country fair and rodeo, and a 100-acre spring-fed lake promise to keep everyone occupied. While on the 10,000-acre working cattle ranch, guests can also bond over a breakfast ride (atop horse or hay wagon) complete with flapjacks, family BBQ nights, and movies under the stars. Even the littlest cowboys can participate in collecting eggs from the hens, help chop up food for the animals, pet and play with bunnies and other creatures, be led around in the horse enclosure, or get creative in the craft room. Just don’t forget your complimentary farm-fresh eggs when you check out. –C.B. THE ALISAL GUEST RANCH AND RESORT 1054 S. Alisal Rd., Solvang, 805-688-6411, alisal.com.

ECLECTIC TO THE MAX When a historic 1922 Funk Zone building became available, Brian Garwood and Carolyn Petersen pounced. “The idea of opening our own store was very appealing and we wanted to build a sense of community,” says Garwood. Yearning to shed their corporate cloaks yet indulge in a shared passion for design and reusing, a year-long recon mission resulted in The Blue Door’s curated assortment of vintage finds and repurposed objets. Equal parts art gallery, flea market, and design studio, the three-tiered space houses independent dealers showcasing handcrafted pillows ($25) and cutting boards (from $65) from local artisans tucked between an Eames classic or brutalist wall art. Coming up? Classes ($75) lead by Petersen in working with their line of nontoxic chalk and mineral paints. –DAWN MOORE THE BLUE DOOR 4 E.

Treasures gathered from travels to Fiji and Indonesia are carefully curated to accent Levin’s own designs like the live-edge suar wood Henna desk ($1,950) or the amorphous Nuvola sofa covered in smoky quartz linen ($5,856).

DANISH DAZE SAY HEJ to the clean design, crisp lines, and cheeky Scandinavian style at Solvang’s newly

renovated 41-room boutique hotel, The Landsby (“the village” in Danish). Located on the western end of Solvang among the town’s boutiques, bakeries, galleries, and cafes—whose überNordic look dates back to 1911, when Danish-American pioneers established a settlement in the golden state of California—the inn’s bright contemporary design inspired by the town’s Danish roots incorporates blonde woods, brushed brass fixtures, leather accents, and handcrafted furnishings for a modern and sophisticated European feel while maintaining some of the more traditional characteristics of the building. Rooms (from $259 per night) also feature whimsical artwork by regional artists and offer views of the village shops, rolling hills of the Santa Ynez Valley, or the tranquil garden. Enjoy a smorgasbord and local vintages at hotel restaurant Mad + Vin, which plays off of the hotel’s Scandinavian inspiration. –C.B. THE LANDSBY 1576 Mission Dr., Solvang, 805-688-3121, thelandsby.com. CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: Scandinavian chic decor; inside a bright, airy tower suite; a classic king room.

Woodn’t It Be Nice

Turns out you may not have to think outside the box to devise a winning idea, as demonstrated by local gift company BUSHEL AND PACK. After noticing the variety of beautiful and handcrafted gift items available around town, chef and entrepreneur Mattias Blom was inspired to help display the attention to detail that small-batch artisans pour into their craft. “The artisan way is here to stay and people are valuing quality over quantity more than ever,” he explains. Unlike other gift baskets, Blom’s boxes (from $55) are a beautiful keepsake, and not just because of the bounty inside (various salts, oils, preserves, sweets, and more). Blom also makes the Summerland Salt Co. spices and succulent planters available for the custom-tailored gifts. The traditional boxes are made with locally purchased wood and each have unique traits that make them one of a kind, and the new lid boxes—with handpicked papers and cloth—are great for shipping out of the area. –C.B.

Even though designer Mara Hoffman is based in New York and studied at Parsons in Manhattan and Central Saint Martins in London, her heart and visuals seem to beat to a chromatic tribal drum. Her eclectic and exotic designs run the spectrum of the color wheel with original prints for everything from swimwear to cashmere coats. Evolving as the goddess of hue, Hoffman pulls her inspiration from nature, global travel, and spiritual fantasy. With her latest spring collection, it seems her paint brush’s muse lands at our very own botanical fantasy—Lotusland. “It’s truly one of most breathtaking and magical places I’ve ever been,” says Hoffman. “I can’t imagine a better landscape and backdrop for this collection, which was inspired by California, cactus, light, and happiness.” –G.T.

VINTAGE FORAGER AND INFLUENCER JOHN DENNIS’S WEATHERED AND WORN VIBE CREATES A CULT FOLLOWING WITH HIS SOUGHT-AFTER SAM ROBERTS LA LABEL We stumbled upon some magic in the woods of Ojai. Nestled along the boulder-lined Matilija Creek, a dimly lit, amber patchouli-filled cabin holds stacks and shelves of sartorial bounty. John Dennis, a Ventura native and former real estate agent, seems right at home in his humble homestead and workshop. Having just finished taking a dip to cool off at the springs up the road, he’s back to his wood table strewn with antique leather, native beads, shells, and textiles—a sewer’s smorgasbord and vintage hunter’s mecca. Spurred by his passion and the birth of his son, Sam (the label’s namesake), Dennis began scouring flea markets and trade shows years ago for Western wear, Americana, native wares, and late 19th and 20th-century clothing. “My jam right now is late-’60s, early ’70s California beach trip vibe,” says Dennis. He’s become the go-to for creative directors of major fashion brands, has an upcoming collaboration with Free People, and a fan base that began with the tribal network of trade shows, weekend markets, and now has expanded to trendy boutiques across the country. “I look at our aesthetic as story telling,” he says. “We start the story off while leaving blank pages for the reader to add their own chapters.” –G.T.

Shuji Nakamura 2014 NOBEL PRIZE WINNER IN PHYSICS

Don’t miss a Q&A (free seating on a first-come basis, artsandlectures.sa.ucsb .edu) with Shuji Nakamura at UCSB’s Campbell Hall on April 28 at 7:30 pm.

For most of the 20th century, the familiar incandescent light bulb served as both the world’s most common source of artificial light and as a universal symbol of the “Eureka!” moment when a truly original idea is born. In the 21st century, however, that image is destined to fade due to the invention for which UC Santa Barbara professor Shuji Nakamura received the 2014 >

came at a price; in 2000, shortly after his arrival at UCSB, his former employer, Nichia Chemicals, contested Nakamura’s intellectual property rights on the grounds that he was infringing on their trade secrets. In a countersuit brought in Japan, Nakamura pursued

Nakamura emphasized the benefits of his discovery for humanity. After acknowledging, “When I started GaN research, I was thinking more about blue light,” Nakamura went on to write, “however, I was expecting that the blue LED would be more efficient than conventional

“My invention of an efficient blue LED has contributed its greatest benefits on mankind by reducing energy consumption.” the smart phone and the flatscreen television. Nakamura’s energy-efficient LEDs are also rapidly replacing incandescent and fluorescent bulbs all over the world, thus promising a profound reduction in how much people pay for lighting and in how much artificial light costs the planet in terms of energy and pollution. For Nakamura, the Nobel Prize is just the latest chapter in a saga that began decades ago on an island in Japan’s Tokushima Prefecture. As a young scientist working virtually alone and with a limited budget, Nakamura was the underdog who competed successfully against giant multinationals by solving one of the most challenging problems in the history of materials engineering. His heroic lone inventor status, however,

a financial settlement for the transfer of his patents to Nichia. When a judge in a United States court dismissed the company’s infringement claims in 2004, Nakamura settled his countersuit for what he describes as the “reasonable compensation” of $8 million. Today, Nakamura is proud of the American citizenship he earned while at UCSB. On the morning he received his Nobel Prize, he told reporters, “Everyone has a chance to dream the American dream.” And although conditions for Japanese inventors are better now than they were in the past—largely due to the precedent set by Nakamura’s lawsuit—the scientist remains openly critical of Japan’s policies on intellectual property. In a recent e-mail exchange,

the invention’s meaning for him, he became uncharacteristically expansive, writing, “Of all the uses I see, I would single out the system composed of the white LED that is made of blue LED with phosphor, a battery, and a solar cell. This system is very popular as a light source in thirdworld countries where there is no electricity. In the daytime, the solar cell generates electricity and charges the battery. In the nighttime, the battery supplies that electricity to the white LED to get the light. The price of the system is about $10. Conventionally, these people have used the kerosene lamp for which they had to pay about $100 a year for the oil. Not only is the white LED system much cheaper, it is also the ultimate in clean green technology.” –CHARLES DONELAN

Though steadfast in his pursuit of naturopathic medicine and healing patients, Maes’s study of wellness extends beyond the confines of in-office treatment to traveling, studying, and unearthing overlooked sources of nutrition and healing. Drawn to the African savanna’s baobab tree, particularly for its antioxidant and fiber-rich fruit and geographic position in the poverty-stricken locale of Upper

East Ghana, he teamed with local humanitarian and international development expert Thomas Cole to launch Kaibae, a socially conscious line of health products (and beauty products in development) that harness the healthful benefits of the tree while forming direct partnerships with local communities to sustainably harvest its fruit. “I realized I could make a difference in a much more profound way,” he ruminates, adding that the communities’ new income from harvesting could, “provide families with the ability to send their children to school and gain access to better healthcare.” -ANGELIA DE MEISTRE-HAMMER

EET THE MAN

who is trying to create a new center of gravity in the Funk Zone. Neil Dipaola, CEO of Mesa Lane Partners, is currently proposing a large mixed-use development on more than an acre of land along Gray Avenue that occupies the old Weber’s bread bakery. The big idea includes affordable housing (mostly rental units), restaurants, a boutique hotel with rooftop bar, ground-level retail, and open artists’ studios as well as a communal lawn for movie screenings on an old grain tower. Saving old structures and former railroad ties is part of the sustainability factor, while new buildings sport eco-friendly materials such as concrete floors, sustainably harvested wood, and triple-pane glass windows. Pedestrian walkways will be aplenty with plans for encouraged car sharing (read: parking may be tough here!). Dipaola, a UC Santa Barbara alum, majored in environmental sciences as well as public policy and ethics and says he follows Patagonia’s philanthropic values to “do no harm” while developing. “Part of our secret sauce has been our ability to listen honestly and empathically to the needs of our neighbors and stakeholders and then design truly thoughtful communities using the feedback we receive early on,” he says.

In recent years, he and his partners transformed an abandoned gas station in Isla Vista into green student housing called the LOOP. They next took over an RV park on De la Vina Street, bringing in shiny Airstreams for the hip new Autocamp, garnering enough visitors (without losing any former tenants) and international press to warrant three new Airstream hotels across the west—enlisting a crane to deliver units onto defunct urban parking garages. When Dipaola discusses the Funk Zone “antidevelopment” from his “anticubicle” office on State Street, he’s clear that it should be genuinely funky. There will be no red tile roofs or white stucco. And likely no wine bars. But what will keep it from feeling contrived? “We want to create something authentic and imaginative, however, we don’t seek to invent a history that never existed,” says Dipaola. “Whenever you create something extraordinary— unless you’re painstakingly meticulous with detail—you can run the risk of it feeling like it came from Disneyland.” His plan is to listen to neighbors and keep the area true to its industrial roots with plenty of urban grit—along with his crane-friendly shock factor. He plans to airlift sailboats above his proposed boutique hotel so, if all approved, we’ll be sipping champagne from a waterfront rooftop sailboat lounge sometime next year. Cheers to that! –J ENNIFER BLAISE KRAMER

Léni Fé Bland P H OTO G R A P H : S A N TA B A R B A R A F O U N DAT I O N A R C H I V E S

1915-2014

AS ONE OF AN INFLUENTIAL GROUP of leading philanthropists who have helped to establish Santa Barbara—despite its small size—as a leading fine arts community, Léni Fé Bland enthusiastically and generously supported numerous local organizations. Over the years, she donated millions of dollars to UC Santa Barbara’s Arts & Lectures, cofounded the State Street Ballet, and supported, among others, the Santa Barbara Symphony, Casa Esperanza, The Granada Theatre, Community Arts Music Association (CAMA), and the Music Academy of the West. Born in England, she trained as a chartered accountant during World War II and became the managing partner of her firm. Her second husband was Baron Léon Fé Bland, a Swiss national, and the couple built a second home in Montecito in 1984. After his death, she sustained the home as her primary residence. Her lifelong passion, however, was music and working to further the professional development of promising young musicians, most directly through the establishment of the Léni Fé Bland Foundation in 1992. She maintained a personal connection with many students that benefited from her foundation and closely followed their careers and personal successes, having herself been classically trained as a singer who toured and performed for many years. Described as unforgettable by those who knew her, Baroness Fé Bland received various honors for her prolific work, including the Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998 from the Santa Barbara NewsPress and the Woman of the Year Award in 2005 from the Santa Barbara Foundation and KEYT. A nearly unmatched patron of individual classical artists, she would have been 100 years old this January. –CHARLOTTE BRYANT

SB PEOPLE | GIVING BACK

THE QUEEN OF THE COAST

KNOWN AROUND THE WORLD for its well-formed waves and those rare days when a big west swell with the right period connects everything from indicator to the emergency call box on Highway 101 for a life-changing ride, Rincon is one of the most famous surf spots in California. The “Queen of the Coast” regularly hosts surfers like Kelly Slater and Shaun Tomson and is the breeding ground of three-time world-champion Tom Curren, former world tour surfer Bobby Martinez, and brothers Conner and Parker Coffin. But when longtime Santa Barbara resident John Roffoni got to the parking lot after a surf session one day, he was struck by the disparity between the beautiful waves he had just ridden and the poor condition of the parking lot, bathroom, and landscaping, so he decided to do something about it. Roffoni teamed with longtime Rincon surfers Glenn Hening and Jason Kline to establish the foundation of a project aimed to transform the Rincon experience. Hening, founder of the Surfrider Foundation, 80

Groundswell Society, and an integral part of the septics-to-sewer project at Rincon, and Kline, a civil engineer, envisioned a new version of the Rincon experience from Bates Road to the high-tide line. The three-phase project—projected to be completed in 2019— will improve the trail to the beach with steps and an observation deck/terraced viewpoint; relocate the top of the trail, and increase handicap accessibility; connect to the Carpinteria Sanitation district system; add native, drought-resistant landscaping; incorporate Chumash design elements; and feature a resurfaced parking lot. While the finished product may still seem distant, the septics-tosewers project was similarly once nothing more than surfers dreaming of clean water at Rincon. And though it took almost 16 years, that project finally broke ground in 2013. The Rincon Enhancement Project will be no less of a challenge but will benefit not just the surfers, but also the public’s enjoyment of one of the world’s best breaks. –CHARLOTTE BRYANT

eyburn Zorthian’s recent painting series entitled Rhythm and Movement combines the artist’s mastery of Japanese sumi ink calligraphy with exuberant large-scale abstract color compositions. A seemingly effortless balance of sophisticated techniques, these works signal a groundbreaking epoch for the artist’s oeuvre. “My task,” says Zorthian, “is to create an expression of the soul conveyed through the body visually, a lasting record of something ephemeral.” Raised in a salonlike atmosphere on a ranch in Altadena, Zorthian was exposed early on to art, architecture, and music—especially jazz. Her father, artist Jirayr Zorthian, was a bohemian lifestyle denizen; her mother, Betty Williams, founded Buttonwood Winery in Santa Ynez (where Zorthian maintains her studio). The artist’s passion for Japanese calligraphy dates back to the 1970s during a journey to Kyoto, where she studied the

demanding brushwork that remains a distinguishing element of her work. Widely collected and frequently exhibited in galleries and museum shows—including Solvang’s Elverhøj Museum and MCA Santa Barbara—Zorthian’s paintings also grace Buttonwood Winery’s distinctive labels. –L.D.

FEAT OF CLAY Although Picasso made it look easy, it’s rare for a painter to switch from canvas to clay. But Ojai artist Rene Norman took up ceramics—after a successful career as a painter—to whet her artistic appetite before facing another blank canvas, and fell in love with the malleable medium. For the past five years, she’s produced high-fired stoneware plates, bowls, and her latest creations, Zenhead vases. “It’s kind of ironic that I used clay to get out of my head and these heads started to emerge,” says Norman, whose creative approach is instinctive rather than premeditated, “I just let them come; they just show up.” –L.D.P.

Street Savvy

IN 1992, as a senior at UC Santa Barbara, Jay Schwartz responded to a flyer seeking an artist to paint a “chalk mural” at Santa Barbara’s annual I Madonnari festival at the Old Mission Santa Barbara. (This year’s event takes place May 23 through 25). Armed with an original composition— and noticeably lacking a hat, sunscreen, and kneepads—he discovered the art of coloring the streets and was instantly hooked. Twenty-three years later, he has painted at every I Madonnari since and participates in festivals throughout the United States and even as far as Italy. After graduating and endeavoring to make it as a traditional painter, Schwartz became disillusioned with the business of fine art and studied computer graphics and design at the Art Center in Pasadena before he founded IdeaWork Studios, ideawork.com, which specializes in branding, web design, and advertising. Now, Schwartz approaches both his personal and professional projects in a similar way. His direction: “Start with a blank space and have a finite amount of time to accomplish a task, and don’t paint yourself into a corner.” While he spends much of his time working to create identities and communicate visually on behalf of big brands, his street art eliminates the professional need to focus on a product. “I’m old-school in that I’m strictly dry medium on asphalt. That means that the painting will wash away,” explains Schwartz. “The ephemeral nature of the medium is why I am a street painter. For me,

PRING carries with it the promise of renewal: time to clean the house, refresh the wardrobe, and why not green up one’s diet as well? There’s no better time to explore the vegan and vegetarian offerings on Santa Barbara’s restaurant scene. Chef Greg Arnold has been widening the possibilities since Mesa Verde opened its rustic-chic doors late last summer. “It seemed like the time was ripe to do this here,” says Arnold, who had previously opened several similar restaurants in Los Angeles. His menu is completely plant based, mostly vegan, and often surprising. “As a creative chef, I experiment,” he says. “There’s always a push and pull to see what I can get away with. But the people who come to the restaurant are not necessarily here for a revolutionary food experience. They come to eat good, healthy food.” Arnold has just begun serving weekend brunch, filling yet another niche. “Most brunches are meat, potatoes, and eggs,” he says. “Even pancakes have milk, butter, and eggs. We have a couple of dishes with eggs, but everything

BOWLED OVER Should the need for a vegetarian repast simply pop up now and again, there’s GREENS-N-GRAINS, gngsb.com, a lunch series collaboration between Om Sweet Mama chef Ayda Robana and Sama Sama Kitchen, 805-965-4566, sama samakitchen.com, on Thursdays and Fridays from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm.

else is vegan.” That may include things like potato latkes with tempeh bacon or Brussels sprouts, pickled onion, and fava bean puree. The ingredients always depend on what’s available at the farmers market, changing with the seasons. “You wait for spring,” he says. “I love it when English peas are in! The different herbs in salads are amazing—tarragon, shiso (Japanese basil). And there’s a whole palette of greens.” Elsewhere in Santa Barbara, vegans and vegetarians can find palate-tempting dishes at the Alchemy Spa Wellness Cafe, which is also “100 percent vegetarian” says chef Jose Nava, with just a couple of egg dishes. Among the most popular items are the Ayurvedic spice burgers, which are flavored with their own blend of condiments, and his personal favorite—the portobello steak. “We use organic mushrooms served with braised kale and sweet potato jam. It goes well with a glass of wine,” he adds. At the Sojourner Cafe, which is celebrating its 37th anniversary this year, owner Donna Mudge says that more people are now asking for more vegan dishes. Always popular among the many vegetarian offerings is the nutburger, which vegans can order without cheese. And demand for vegan desserts, like their version of the pot de crème, is huge. She adds, “This spring, we’re doing something I’ve wanted to do for years—trimming the menu and making it more seasonal, with more salads, more vegan dishes, and more light fare.” The emphasis on plant-based foods is only going to grow, notes Arnold. “I’m not a soapbox kind of guy,” he says, “but I feel like I’m on the forefront of what’s going to happen anyway. Hundreds of cultures on the planet eat this way. It’s not a foreign concept.” n

A NEW HUE When it comes to rosé, “think pink” tends to be the motto. But with De La Vina Wine Company’s fruity and fabulous 2013 rosé ($15, available at Vino Divino, The Liquor & Wine Grotto, and Carpinteria Wine Company), “think coral” might be a better catch phrase. Founded by wine industry veteran Stephen Henderson with longtime friends David and Victoria Sperry, De La Vina Wine Company knows how to make a wine tailored to fit the subtle nuances of Santa Barbara seasons. The copper-hued wine embodies the breeziness of springtime, and its remarkable versatility, makes it perfect for casual California cuisine. Picked at the peak of harvest in 2013 and bottled last June, local winemaker Gary Burk made the wine in the style of a dry Provence rosé. –AMANDA BURNS FOOD SUMMIT UC Santa Barbara’s Arts & Lectures presents New York Times best-selling author/ethical eating activist Michael Pollan in a moderated conversation with Dr. Kurt Ransohoff, CEO of Sansum Clinic, and Dr. Fred Kass, wellness medical director of the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, at the Granada Theatre on April 30 (tickets: from $28, artsandlectures.ucsb.edu).

.com), tomato enthusiasts are given a detailed and realistic guide on growing, preparing, and cooking the popular fruit. For a bumper crop, “Most home gardeners will do well to pay attention to two major areas,” says Daigre. “Amend the soil in your planting area or container well with copious amounts of compost and other rich organic materials, and manage water delivery effectively and appropriately. Deep and infrequent irrigation is the best way to produce a successful tomato crop. Soak the root ball when you water and then allow the plant to dry out before adding more water.” Ojai-based Daigre is the founder of Tomatomania, an annual multicity heirloom tomato seedling sale—one of which takes place April 12 to 13 at Flora Gardens Nursery, 805-640-0055, in Ojai.

The recipes are all plant based, sugar free, easy to make, and tasty,” says Judi, who aims to educate readers on the top eight allergens (dairy, eggs, wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish) and advocates organic/nonGMO foods because genetically modified organisms can potentially increase incidence of food allergies by modifying the basic DNA of our foods. “Santa Barbara’s lovely weather allows us to enjoy an abundance of local produce, and we love the farmers market, where we get organic and seasonal produce for our recipes.” –GINA Z. TERLINDEN “TO COMBAT SEASONAL ALLERGIES, WE RECOMMEND FOODS THAT HAVE NATURAL ANTIHISTAMINES AND ARE HIGH IN VITAMIN C SUCH AS CITRUS FRUITS, APPLES, PINEAPPLES, RED BELL PEPPER, SUGAR SNAP PEAS, AND ASPARAGUS.

VISUAL EFFECTS Film industry pros JANN & MICHAEL JAFFE resurrect a modern masterpiece on Santa Barbara’s Riviera

In the living room, a coffee table from William Laman (with two gold figurines from the Jaffes’ 30th wedding anniversary trip to Singapore) is edged by two black-and-white 1960s chairs; a vintage metal ladder adds a sculptural element to the space.

Jann and Michael Jaffe were featured in Santa Barbara Magazine was in the Winter 2001 issue; Jann was on the cover arranging flowers in their newly built New England-style antique-filled home in Riven Rock. Flash forward to 2015: Jann’s flower arrangements are more abstract as is her home—a restored mid-century post-and-beam Riviera masterpiece. Designed by Santa Barbara architect Wallace W. Arendt (1917-1975) and built in 1964, the glassenclosed house is a stunning example of the primary goal of California modernism—to bring the outdoors inside. Unfortunately, by the time the Jaffes purchased it in 2007, the home was in complete disrepair. But the couple agreed “it had good bones,” was perfectly sited to take advantage of expansive ocean and mountain views, and, after the surrounding overgrown landscape was removed—at the suggestion of Jann’s good friend/sounding board Kyle Irwin—also included a city view. (Panorama aside, eliminating the original landscape had another fortuitous effect—it saved the home from the 2008 Tea Fire, which destroyed at least seven homes in the surrounding neighborhood.) The two-year renovation included installing new windows throughout and upgrading the electrical, plumbing, and heating systems. Critical architectural changes were achieved with the assistance of Los Angeles architect Mark Rios of Rios Clementi Hale Studios, whose enlightened input resulted in raising the door heights to meet the existing 12-foot ceiling, enhancing the soaring nature of the interior spaces. Rios also reworked the dramatic open-air glass entrance atrium by removing an unremarkable fountain (which disrupted the view to the opposite end of the house and ocean beyond), substituting a sleek wooden bridge suspended over a gurgling reflection pool in its place. But the original footprint of the house remains intact, a testament to the integrity of its modernist design. “Every room stayed the same size except the kitchen, which we expanded by three feet,” says Jann. Three feet might not seem like much, but for Michael, a seasoned cook, “the important thing about the kitchen is not to have to move around. You want to be able to turn around and prep and if you need something in the fridge, you want to be able to take two steps,” he says. The Jaffes also retained the kitchen’s original sliding frosted glass pocket doors that are overlaid with intricate fretwork. When closed, these monumental doors screen the kitchen from the rest of the house and emanate a soft light not unlike Japanese shoji screens. Michael credits Jann for overseeing the home’s transformation to its current pristine condition. “Jann is responsible for everything. The only thing I have input about are my work space and the kitchen,” says Michael, who recently retired after a successful career in the film industry, having produced more than 120 films, including Emmy-nominated The Rosa Parks Story starring Angela Bassett and the Nero Wolfe mystery series starring Timothy Hutton. Jann, also an entertainment industry veteran, admits she HE LAST TIME

Michael custom designed the kitchen area for maximum efficiency. “The important thing is not to have to move around” while cooking, he says. The Jaffes retained the kitchen’s original sliding frosted glass pocket doors overlaid with intricate fretwork.

relied on her prior experience as an assistant director when guiding the renovation: “To make an analogy,” says Jann with a knowing smile, “there’s a schedule and there are priorities. Like on a film set, you work with a lot of men and you have to get their respect and know what you’re doing.” Looking at the result, there’s no doubt Jann was ideally suited for the project. A dedicated admirer of all styles of architecture, she knew what she wanted from the start. “I didn’t want to do a formulated mid-century,” she says. “I wanted to warm it up.” For Jann, that meant preserving important aspects of the interior (like the original period-perfect brass front door fixtures) while adding found objects as focal points: A salvaged metal ladder acts as a sculpture in the living room, a pair of urns used to melt iron ore have been repurposed as planters flanking the atrium, and a dried tree branch serves as a minimalist still-life arrangement on the spare black Paul McCobb dining room table. The expansive white walls are a perfect background for the couple’s long-standing art collection: Michael collects black and white photography (including works by Edward Weston, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, and Imogen Cunningham), while Jann has acquired oil portraits by unknown artists and recently developed an interest in paint-by-numbers kit paintings by amateurs—an intriguing genre of folk art. The Jaffes’ passionate plunge into modernism has not gone unnoticed by friends. “Everybody says to me, ‘This is so different,’” says Jann. “And I say to them, ‘If you love design, you love all kinds of design and you want to try new things.’ When the sun is out and the view is clear, this house gives you an experience from the minute you walk in. It carries you over the bridge, and the first sense is the quieting noise of the water bubbling, then the feast of the eye as you take in the mountains, the ocean, and lastly, the whole city.” Sounds like a perfect Hollywood ending. n 108

We moved to Ojai because—let’s face it—I was becoming

somewhat of a joke. All the years I lived in Los Angeles, I had chickens in my backyard and horses at a nearby ranch. It was like I was pretending to live in the country. For decades, I was trying to reach back for the idyllic places that Malibu and the English countryside were in the 1970s when I was raised. Ojai became our home because of the wonderful community and space it offers. Finally landing in a more natural setting has enlivened our creativity and enjoyment of life as a family. Even my 21-year-old son, Wolf Fleetwood-Ross, loves to spend his weekends here with us. I’ve manifested a space that enables artists—including myself—to create and expand, relax and enjoy. We pretty much have an open-door policy, so I am able to enjoy friends who come here to find peace and, of course, take part in the hilarious adventures—or rather, misadventures—that come along with having a small farm. I am fortunate to have had a myriad of artists, painters, designers, writers, and musicians stay with us, which makes for an interesting exchange as they take advantage of the special things that this environment has to offer. n 123

WATER WORKS If a somewhat eccentric and animated Englishman by the name of Anthony Archer-Wills, archerwills.com, calls inquiring whether you’d like him to design a natural pool for your home, you’d be well-advised to say “Yes, please.” ArcherWills was the subject of an Animal Planet reality series The Pool Master, which followed the globally recognized water garden designer who’s known for crafting waterfalls, authentic-looking streams, and pools that blend into their surrounding environment. The producers of the show were searching for anyone who was game to let him work his magic, and Amelia Fleetwood was willing to take the plunge. “He’s sort of genius,” she says. The Pool Master chronicled the construction of Fleetwood’s backyard swimming hole, which is fed by two separate but connected filtration ponds, a design that both eliminated the need for chlorine or saline to purify the water yet still maintained a pristine swimming environment. “I was wary at first, because I thought having a natural pool meant I would be swimming in reedy or grassy water, like a lake,” says Fleetwood, who didn’t wish to swim with flora, “but the way it’s designed, the filtration reas are two separate ponds that are stocked with vegetation and small, algaeeating insects that clean the water.” The result is unconventional, beautiful, and organic. “Out here in Ojai, water is precious,” she says. “And this pool feels incredibly special.” –CHRISTINE LENNON

“Ojai is where I can work well and squeeze in lots of playtime with the kids and our much-loved animals too. Izzy and I were on a trail ride the other day and there was water in the little river—she and her friend dismounted and started playing in the water. What lucky people get to do that on a regular day after school?”

erched on the side of her boat, Stephanie Mutz fixes her mask over her sun-gold hair and adjusts the oxygen line. With a splash, she’s gone. For the next five hours, she will drift along the coves and inlets of Santa Rosa Island, deftly gathering sea urchins from their rocky lairs. By days’ end, she will have harvested 1,000 pounds of the spiny creatures, destined for the tables of some of the finest restaurants in the world. The Santa Barbara Channel is a sea urchin’s idea of heaven. The rocky coastline, the kelp cover, and the mild water temperature—it’s just perfect. And a happy sea urchin is a tasty one. Those from Santa Barbara are widely believed to be the most flavorful and desirable in the world. Even in Japan, where the spiny animal is prized as a delicacy, “California Gold” fetches the highest prices. The fame of the Santa Barbara sea urchin is such that the name has been pirated. Unethical purveyors from Russia and Chile have taken to falsely claiming their inferior catches come from our fair waters. Mutz has one of only about 120 active licenses to fish urchin in the state of California. She believes she is the only woman active in the field, which made her position for six years as president of the Commercial Fisherman of Santa Barbara even more remarkable. (She stepped aside last year.) The average fisherman is in his 50s or 60s; she is 36. But her reputation as an urchin diver is impeccable. Through her company, Sea Stephanie Fish, she delivers her goods—at around $5 per urchin—to some of Santa Barbara’s best restaurants, including The Hungry Cat, the dining room at Belmond El Encanto, the Four Seasons Resort Biltmore, The Lark, and Industrial Eats in Buellton. Most Americans have yet to experience the delights of sea urchin while those who are presented with the opportunity sometimes have trouble wrapping their heads around the idea. For a small but growing number of diners, however, the briny, delicate flavor has become something of a delightful obsession. “People go crazy for sea urchin,” Mutz says. “They run me over for it!” With her bright blue eyes, ready smile, and athletic build that speaks to years of outdoor—and underwater—activity, Mutz seems to have been destined for a life lived at sea. “TMI, but I was conceived on a boat,” she quips. “I grew up on the ocean in Newport Beach. I was taught that if you want to eat fish, you go out there and get it yourself.” Mutz received a bachelor of science degree in marine biology from UC Santa Barbara, then a master of science at the School of Marine and Tropical Biology at James Cook University Queensland, Australia. She presently works as a part-time professor teaching classes in marine biology and microbiology at Ventura Col-

lege. However, her main focus appears to be on her career as a fisherman, and most days she’d rather be in the water. As all sea urchin divers must, in order to obtain a coveted license from the state, she spent three years working as a deckhand before becoming the captain of her own vessel—a 20-foot Bellingham Workskiff— which she now keeps docked at the Santa Barbara Harbor. Diving for urchin is a hazardous business. Strong or unexpected currents are one significant danger. Recreational boats are another, especially for the diver’s critical oxygen line. The sea urchins themselves can be, well, prickly, and if a spine gets stuck in a joint, it can cause infection. And then there are the sharks. “The joke is: ‘If you see a shark, you’re not working hard enough,’” says Mutz. “Knock on wood, I’ve only seen one—a six-foot salmon shark. I just got into my boat and didn’t go back in the water after that.” There was, however, at least one diver who didn’t get away. In 1994, an urchin diver named James “Weiner” Robinson was eaten alive at “Shark Park,” a ring of reefs and rocks off San Miguel Island. Now, every year, California sea urchin divers gather at Brophy Bros. Restaurant and Clam Bar at the Santa Barbara Harbor to commemorate him. “They come from The Santa Barbara Channel up and down the coast,” Mutz says. “We drink is a sea urchin’s idea of heaven. The rocky coastline, to Weiner. Then we tip one over to the shark the kelp cover, and the as well.” mild water temperature— Fishermen’s camait’s just perfect. And a happy raderie helps ease the challenges of a solitary sea urchin is a tasty one. and physically demanding life. Mutz typically leaves her house at 6 am and doesn’t return home until 8 or 9 that night. Then there are numerous state rules and regulations to consider. “You’re not allowed to fish without having someone place a market order, so I fulfill those first,” says Mutz. “I also sell directly to consumers. Then if there is any left over, I hand it over to the processors,” who put the urchin on ice and truck it down to processing plants in Los Angeles and San Diego, where the sex organs (the edible part of the animal) are extracted and soaked in preservative, sorted for size and color, then shipped to restaurants all over the world. Chefs beyond the sushi bar are beginning to appreciate the culinary merits of this spiny sea creature, so it’s fortunate that it’s a resilient breed. Minimum size limits and limited fishing days protect against overfishing. According to Mutz, continued on page 162

DOS PUEBLOS RANCH SPLENDOR

Divine Union

Mandy Grassini and Justin Willett’s Dos Pueblos Ranch wedding was truly a marriage of two top Santa Barbara winemaking families—the Grassini Family Vineyards were planted in 2002 by Mandy’s parents, and Justin launched his Tyler Winery label in 2005. Though both are deeply involved in the laborious wine industry, the couple “wanted our wedding to be classic and elegant without feeling stuffy or conservative,” says Mandy. After the ceremony—which took place in the gardens amid 213 loved ones—guests retreated to the greenhouse that Mindy Rice Floral and Event Design furnished with lush grass and ferns hanging from the ceiling to sip champagne and enjoy oysters for cocktail hour. For the reception, guests walked down an ivy and tree-lined path into a sailcloth tent decorated with lush cream florals and fern accents. Small glass boxes with gold edges served as seating assignments and doubled as party favors. New West Catering provided a four-course meal paired with—naturally—vintages from both the bride and groom’s wineries. With insight from her sister Corinne, a fashion designer, Mandy’s dream gown was a slip dress underneath a custom-designed long-sleeve, floorlength cape made by Patricia from the Perfect Fit in Montecito. Following the reception, the guests sent off the newlyweds in style. –LAURA LEWIS S A N TA B A R B A R A

Up at the Villa

Mariana Oskey met James Rickard through a mutual friend at the very spot where they would say their vows three and a half years later, bringing their romance full circle. While on vacation, the couple was out for a swim in the bay in Napili, Maui, when a sudden storm cleared the usually crowded beach. At that moment, Jimmy pulled the ring he designed at Bryant & Sons from the pocket of his swim trunks and proposed. Along with Michael Rothbard and architect Britt Jewett, Jimmy— whose grandfather was a two-term mayor in the 1950s and responsible for the reincarnation of Old Spanish Days Fiesta—spent several years bringing Villa Sevillano to life. Located on 22 manicured acres, a red tiled roof, white stucco exterior, and dramatic ocean views display the best of Santa Barbara’s climate and style as well as equestrian facilities with a private polo field and 54-stall stable. The striking grounds boast rose gardens, orchards of citrus trees, and are home to more than 200 mature olive trees, including, naturally, the prized Sevillano olive. Mari and Jimmy used various sites around the property for their wedding, including a short but sweet standing ceremony in the motor court, a brief reception on the back balcony overlooking the polo field, dinner and dancing in the gardens, and a Cuban cigar roller and bar on the bottom terraces for more than 200 guests.

RUSTIC ROMANCE

Emily Rosendahl and Rob DaFoe understand the importance of timing. Their friends tried to set them up for months after they initially met, but it took a year until it all finally fell into place. After a whirlwind six months, they were married at their ranch home in Summerland. Officiated by a close friend, the intimate ceremony was completely DIY, and while the reception didn’t have the traditional rites such as a bouquet toss, it was a laughter-filled party where friends and family gathered to celebrate the couple’s love story. –AMANDA BURNS

FIESTA FLAIR

FROM THE MOMENT THEY MET at a bar in San Luis Obispo, the energy between Jennifer Stierwalt and Santa Barbara-born Eric Reiter was magnetic. “I noticed him right away,” recalls Stierwalt, founder of locally based bridal and everyday wear styling firm Your Best Self Stylist, of her initial encounter with the Driscolls Berries farmer turned head of operations for Reiter Affiliated Companies. With a little help from friends and a bit of liquid courage, they met. A hike up SLO peak, Madonna Mountain, and homemade pizza date-night later, “he stole my heart,” reminisces the blushing bride. Fast forward four-and-a-half years while on another hike, Eric popped the question atop a boulder to an ecstatic Jennie. Never ones to abide by convention, following a send-off reception with 250 guests that she attended solo after Eric was rushed to the ER that day after a surfing accident, the pair exchanged vows in Las Cruces, Mexico, in an open-air church where the groom’s parents had renewed their vows years earlier. Yet, despite the echo of waves crashing against the Baja California Sur shore, the exchange of vows carried the most significance for the couple. Stierwalt reminisces, “In a bowl, I placed soil I had gathered from Madonna Mountain as a representative of what I bring to our relationship—I’m grounded, rooted, and nurturing—and he poured water (he loves the ocean, he is fluid and easy going) over seeds to symbolize that together, the two of us could make something beautiful grow.” –ANGELIA DE MEISTRE-HAMMER

Monique Lhuillier’s name and brand is synonymous with bridal chic.

Her collections include everything from must have dresses and shoes to collaborations with Blue Nile diamonds and Waterford. Herewith, the designer shares her tips, trends, and the latest looks straight from the runway. –GINA TOLLESON 2015 BRIDAL TRENDS Color is a huge trend at the moment. Brides have become bolder with their color choices, and I love designing dresses that are a little more colorful and interesting. I think blush is the safest way to play with color because it’s neutral and looks beautiful on all skin tones. For a more adventurous bride, I experimented with color in my Spring 2015 and Fall 2015 bridal collections using shades of hydrangea, lavender, gold, pistachio, and mist. It is definitely a way to make a major style statement on your big day.

WEDDING TIP I encourage my brides to keep an open mind when shopping for the perfect gown. Many dresses look one way on the hanger or in a picture, and are completely transformed on the body. It is important for a bride to try on a few styles to see which she feels the most comfortable and beautiful in. Many of my brides end up selecting something very different from what they initially expected. The key is being open in trying different options.

50 Shades

With decades of experience between them, master colorist and stylist to the stars Audrey Johnson and Michele Mallet, Parisian-trained owner and lead colorist at Belle de Jour, know about obtaining just the right shade days before an important event. With unmatched creative vision and skills in the latest coloring techniques, our go-to gals for achieving believable shades of blonde and brilliant brunette tones weigh in on maintaining your ideal color. What color trends are you predicting for the season? AJ: We’re moving away from a dipped-dyed ombré look to “sombré,” a softer, natural highlighted look achieved by literally hair painting shades of rich browns, gold ribbon, and face-framing buttery blondes. Brunettes can add a touch of softness around the face with a few balayage highlights. How should brides decide on an appropriate color? MM: Highlight placement should coincide with the wedding day hairstyle. For example, if hair is being worn as an updo, ask for highlights at the neckline so hair doesn’t look light on top and dark in the back. Think of depth too. Even brunettes need to add a bit more color definition for the black-and-white photos. AJ: Ask your colorist to add a clear gloss after coloring to close the cuticle, add shine, and protect the color.

How can gals maintain their color during the honeymoon? AJ: Sun, travel, and water can all contribute to drying and dullness. One of my favorite products, Huile de Leonor Greyl ($52), is fabulous to put in your hair before heading to the beach or as a preshampoo treatment. A cheaper alternative is coconut oil. MM: All my clients use custom blended Startec color depositing shampoos ($28) to maintain red tones, prevent brunettes from fading, and blondes from losing the depth they added. –ANGELIA DE MEISTRE-HAMMER BELLE DE JOUR 1236 Coast Village Rd., Montecito, 805845-7000, bdj-salon.com.

ONE TO WATCH

Jenny Easter, Bobbie Mecay, and Brooks Mecay Gunner can attest to the capacity that a fresh blowout, even tan, and manicured tips can have in making a gal feel like she can take on the world or walk down the aisle with confidence. Yet, as successful professionals in real estate, law, and digital marketing, for these three careerists turned beauty industry entrepreneurs and founders of the full-service mobile salon VAMP AT HOME, time for personal maintenance too often came at a premium. With a team of certified and competitively screened professionals and a full menu of services (from $30)—from tanning, hair styling, and manicures to fashion styling—Vamp, quite simply, comes to you. Says Gunner: “We want our clients to feel as comfortable as possible on their very special day.” –A.D.H.

PRETTY IN PINK

When it comes down to day-of wedding beauty necessities, we are all for a lessis-more approach. Lending a whole new meaning to “killing two birds with one stone,” makeup maven Bobbi Brown’s latest product launch, a limited-edition shade of her cult-favorite rouge called Pretty Powerful II ($27, saksfifthavenue .com), does serious double duty as a fresh cheek flush and an au natural lip color. What’s more? All proceeds benefits Girl Rising, which supports girl empowerment through education in underserved global areas. –A.D.H.

How long prior to their wedding day do you recommend brides color their hair? MM: The week before the wedding is not the time to experiment. Be your best true self! Grey coverage should be done two days prior to allow any residual color left on the skin to fade. AJ: I recommend major color to be done one to two weeks before the big day to allow time for the color to settle, and, if needed, to add any necessary tweaks to the existing color.

WEDDINGS | EAT + DRINK

Spirited Shrubbery

Between gluten-free diets and pressed juices, here in sunny So-Cal, we fancy ourselves culinary trendsetters of the first degree. Case in point: Santa Barbara local mixologist turned entrepreneur Lucas Ryden and his line of premixed and bottled cocktail shrubs, Nostrum. Pioneering the notion of farm-to-bottle, Nostrum’s concoctions veer from commercial mixers in that they include vinegar, namely Santa Barbara-based Bragg’s apple cider vinegar, for added health benefits and a welcome “zing” to balance the sweetness of the unpasteurized locally grown produce blends. With a range of flavors designed with a specific spirit in mind—think grapefruit habanero lime paired with a couple shots of Casamigos tequila—Nostrum makes craft cocktails readily available at your wedding (or bridal shower) sans a pricey barman. Steering clear of the booze till the reception? Mix a tangerine, oolong, and clove shrub with club soda for a sparkling pre-ceremony spritzer. –A.D.H. NOSTRUM 858-442-4527, drinknostrum.com.

ON A ROLL Craving a way to feed guests at a

laid-back wedding? Food trucks aren’t just for festivals and farmers markets anymore. From ice cream trucks and coffee carts to full-blown burger buses, these meals on wheels deliver offbeat brides with a memorable solution for everything from cocktail hour to late-night snacks.

CLOCKWISE FROM RIGHT: The Jolly Oyster’s freshly shucked offerings; some pick-me-ups from Black Sand Coffee Co.; McConnell’s McTruck.

Keep the party and partygoers alive with espresso, lattes, cappuccinos, and cocoas from Black Sand Coffee Co., 805-320-5689, blacksand coffeeco.com, and top of any treat with the signature whipped cream. A retired and retrofitted school bus known as The Burger Bus, theburgerbus.com, serves updated elementary fare. Show some Southern hospitality with Georgia’s Smokehouse, 805-845-4854, georgias-smokehouse.com, a gourmet food truck that specializes in comfort food.

Reserve The Jolly Oyster, 805-798-4944, thejollyoyster.com, or just the travelling oyster bar for fresh and responsibly sourced clams, oysters, and seafood. No matter where you decide to spend your special day, specialty cold-pressed juice cocktails from Juice Ranch, 805-845-4657, juiceranch.com, need never be out of reach. I scream, you scream, we all scream for McConnell’s Fine Ice Cream’s McTruck, 805-9638813, mcconnells.com, to sweeten any day. Keep it local and low-key with Surf Dog, 805-6845793, and share the quintessential Carpinteria hot dog experience with out-of-town guests. –C.B. S A N TA B A R B A R A

WEDDINGS | DESSERTS

MIX IT UP Taking the guesswork out of at least one aspect of wedding planning, Santa Barbara’s go-to confectioneries prove that choosing the right dessert might just be the icing on the cake for your big day. A Santa Barbara mainstay since its opening in 2007, Crushcakes & Cafe is single-handedly responsible for bringing cupcake fever to the 805. Though a pioneer of the wedding cupcake trend, with an event tasting kitchen slated to open this year, owner Shannon Gaston ensures that her culinary wizardry satisfies the pickiest of palettes (think dessert bars serving homemade macaroons, brownies, and three or four-layer tiered cakes) and is “proud to serve scratch-made desserts prepared the same day they’re delivered,” she says. Also ask about their gluten-free and vegan cake options. While 40-year confectionery veteran Wayne Kjar of Your Cake Baker has witnessed the gamut of wedding trends, his “specialty” multitiered cakes remain among the Central Coast’s wedding dessert favorites. With more than 2,000 combos of cake flavors to choose from—including mango, passion fruit, green tea, salted caramel, and hazelnut—and a new Coast Village Road storefront, when in doubt, ask Wayne. Our fave? White cake with raspberry Bavarian cream filling. –A.D.H. CRUSHCAKES & CAFE Weddings & Events 4945 Carpinteria Ave., Carpinteria, 805-886-4042, crushcakes.com. YOUR CAKE BAKER 2018 Cliff Dr., Santa Barbara, 805-845-5519, and 1150 Coast Village Rd., Montecito, 805-965-8150, yourcakebaker.com.

GLORIOUSLY SANS GLUTEN A diagnosed celiac, Gillian Muralles’s focus as a pastry chef has always been gluten-free baking. She and husband Alam have spent years developing such recipes—and 23 cake flavors with plans to expand their wedding cake menu—to meet their rigorous taste standards while honing their pastry and decorating skills. The result is the new Lilac Pâtisserie, a completely gluten-free bakery and cafe chock-full of beautiful and delicious cakes, baked goods, and entrées. While the fad may not appeal to those of us who haven’t waved goodbye to wheat, these desserts—made from tried-andtrue alternative flour blends—may fool even the most discerning of foodies. There are also plans to launch a full lunch menu of soups, salads, sandwiches, and bread baked on-site this year. –C.B. LILAC PATISSERIE 1017 State St., Santa Barbara, 805-845-7400, lilacpatisserie.com.

Small Packages The newest catering bakery to open its doors in town, Violette Bakeshop is a one-stop shop for gourmet baked goods and desserts. Brides can custom design flavors to fit their theme as well as choose their own decorations, top cakes, and cupcake displays. With more than 40 flavors to choose from—maple bacon or chocolate salted caramel, for example—the mini cupcakes ($36 for two dozen) are a fun addition to a dessert buffet. –LAURA LEWIS Your Cake Baker; Crushcakes; Lilac Pâtisserie.

of decidedly Mediterranean-fashioned landmarks, five-star resorts, luxury beach and country clubs, lush polo fields, and sweeping mountainous coastal vistas, it’s no wonder that Santa Barbara remains a sought-after nuptial locale. However, for a subset of couples searching for a place to say “I do” that takes advantage of our beach city’s charm while appealing to more avant-garde predilections, the pickings are seemingly slim. In pressing our choice local event designers and coordinators for their picks, we uncovered a sleek, industrial, and modern event space that marries a by-thebeach setting with an urban, downtown chic aesthetic. For premier “elegance with intelligence” celebrity event designer, Merryl Brown, 805-220-6345, merrylbrownevents.com, says the Santa Barbara Art Foundry— with more than 4,500 square feet of usable space, vaulted ceilings, and an expansive indoor-outdoor patio—tops her list as a “fabulously versatile venue.” “The best part?” says Stephanie Sanders of Shindig, 805-450-5808, shindigsb .com. “It has an in-house wine cellar and with a 4 am noise ordinance (as opposed to the city standard of 10 pm or midnight), you can keep dancing.” –A.D.H.

A LOST ART

For UC Santa Barbara alum Joanie Hudson, designing and printing custom stationery is as much an art form as it is a passion. Utilizing the lost and more labor-intensive practice of linocut woodblock printing, the oil painter turned printmaker with a background in fine art hand stamps her trademark “bold, graphic, spontaneous, and colorful” designs to produce Caswell Adams wedding stationery packages that are “personal and specific” to each bride and groom. “Wedding stationery should be representative of the couple—sort of like branding,” she says. For example, “If the bride and groom are environmentally conscious, then every choice they make should stay as close to that intention as possible.” She adds: “Save the Dates can be small and simple. Save your dollars for the real invitation.” –A.D.H. CASWELL ADAMS 323-841-4908, caswelladams.com.

Tuscany for Two The idea of dolce far niente—“the sweetness of doing nothing,” as the Italians say— is never more appealing than when on a honeymoon. And where better to do that than in the heart of Tuscany? Just two years old, Castelfalfi combines the grandeur of luxurious private villas and atmospheric apartments with a boutique hotel on an old country estate just 50 miles from Florence. The place has a colorful history. Here, the Medici had a hunting lodge; centuries later, filmmakers used it as a set for a version of Pinocchio. You pick up the key to your country-style casale, as the villas are known, in the lobby of the hotel, an elegantly renovated former tobacco factory. At the center of the 2,700-acre property is the Borgo, an 800-year-old restored village with a small church, a trattoria and pizzeria, and fashionable boutiques around a venerable castle. Inside the castle walls lies a culinary jewel. “My meal at La Rocca de Castelfalfi was exceptional,” says a recent guest who dined on Michelin-starred chef Michele Rinaldi’s gourmet Italian fare, “not to mention the gorgeous view overlooking the Tuscan valley below.” Beyond the chance to sample fine cuisine, Castelfalfi has opportunities for swimming, horseback riding, biking, Italian cooking classes, and relaxed rounds on the two golf courses (27 holes) on the grounds. It makes it hard to say ciao! –J.T. CASTELFALFI Loc. Castelfalfi, 50050 Montaione, Florence, Italy, 011-39-0571-89100, castelfalfi.co.uk. Rates: From $225 per night.

local fishermen are well aware of the delicate balance between harvesting and preservation that is necessary to maintain population stability. “Fisherman in Santa Barbara are some of the most well-educated, ecologically aware, ethical people I know,” she says. “We’re not just a bunch of salty-crusty guys. We know we need to take care of the resource or we’re out of a job.” Still, she says, turf wars are inevitable. “Outside fishing grounds, we’re the best of friends, but during fishing season, it can be competitive,” she says. “If you’re not competitive, you’re not going to be a good fisherman, especially in Santa Barbara.” Mutz has earned the trust of some of Santa Barbara’s top chefs, who rely on her to supply them with the precious ingredient. “Stephanie brings the freshest sea urchin,” says Belmond El Encanto chef Leo Andres Ayala, who has created an urchin dish with puree of aji amarillo (Peruvian yellow peppers), citrus salad, and toasted brioche points. “I’d rather get my urchin from her because she can harvest according to a chef’s exact requirements as she is an expert in the sea urchin industry, both from a commercial and research standpoint.” On occasion, Ayala prepares a very rich bisque of sea urchin served in the shell and topped off with even more fresh sea urchin. He also enjoys preparing sea urchin topped with quail egg in a citrus broth, with a little scallion to cut the fishy flavor. Over at The Hungry Cat, where the animal is also served at the raw bar, urchin is the key element of sea urchin butter. And at Les Marchands, urchin is the secret ingredient of a notorious noodle dish so mysteriously delectable that it inspired weekly ramen nights on Fridays and Saturdays. These days, there seems to be no limit to the reach of sea urchin cuisine. It is appearing in a number of unexpected places—including ice cream. “In Solvang, chef Pink at Bacon & Brine does a sea urchin ice cream with caramel,” says Mutz, her bright eyes widening at the thought. “It’s so good!” n
