The Californian living, new design boutique, and dreamy Airbnb home were opened by Scotti Sitz and John Davidson in Santa Barbara. Situated within a refurbished farmhouse that dates back to 1921, Garde Summerland not only operates as a concept store but a dreamy, short-term rental apartment as well.
On the house’s ground floor, pieces by designers such as Apparatus, Egg Collective, Faye Toogood, Gubi, Workstead, and Ben & Aja Blanc create a perfect picture of breezy Californian living. The neutral colour palette highlights the impeccably crafted nature of the collections, which also includes an array of exclusives, such as exquisite furniture from the Belgian designer Ben Storms, objects and lighting from the French designer Emilie Lemardeley, garden and outdoor ceramic accents from the venerable Terres d’Albine and its own in-house range of Garde House sofas.
Upstairs, the second floor has been transformed into a 93 sqm apartment available to rent on the platform Airbnb. Adorned with elegant amenities such as When Objects Work cookware, Piet Boon’s ‘Base’ dishware, and custom-designed ‘Mad et Len’ scented candles, which are all available to purchase, this short-term abode easily puts most permanent homes to shame.
