This Old House

Santa Barbara, California (Part 5 of 7) (#1924)

We check out the new custom windows, which feature cherry, wood interiors and true divided lights. Then we meet landscape architect Susan van Atta who reviews her design for the historically sensitive landscape that includes plants native to California. Then our host meets with Paul Duchscherer, design expert and author of three books on Arts-and-Crafts style, who was enlisted to ensure that the new interior and exterior colors, finishes and decorative details stay true to the home's period character. Duchscherer then takes us to the neighboring town of Ojai for a tour of a spectacular Greene and Greene home, which epitomizes American Arts-and-Crafts style. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
