The Spanish Colonial revival style was started about 100 years ago in California by architect George Washington Smith. Smith dropped out of Harvard to become a bond trader. After that, he relocated to Santa Barbara to retire and relax. However, he decided to continue creating for the city after learning that his designs are successful. Smith used authentic Spanish materials and combined the new with the old. His designs are praised for their beauty and complexity. Smith is recognized as a Santa Barbara founding father, and many artists were inspired by him. Kenny Slaught believes that a detail oriented eye is is necessary in designing such artistic pieces.
