What Clients Have to Say

While out-of-state for two months taking care of a dying relative, a subterranean pipe burst in my house. I arrived home to a house that had the flooring torn up, 1/3 of the drywall removed, and all of my furnishings put into storage. To say the least, it was a very jarring experience to come home to a house that I could not live in. Beth Dana came to the rescue. Beth met with me right away and discussed options for paint, flooring, baseboards and even new kitchen ideas, if I decided to remodel the kitchen at my own cost. Her brilliant design concepts set me on the right course. Her professionalism made everything happen in a timely manner and with the right people. In addition to her skill and professional expertise, Beth’s calm demeanor and sense of humor created a sense of trust and enjoyment in the process that I would have never anticipated during such a difficult time. Quite simply, I could not have put my house back together without her. Beth Dana receives my highest recommendation.

I am a general contractor and recently finished a large addition to a Spanish style home in Hope Ranch. As I entered the finishing stages of the project, my clients needed professional guidance and help deciding on tiles, paint colors, and choosing plumbing and light fixtures. I contacted Beth and she met with me on site the next day. She understood the owners’ style, desires, and budget, and worked with me and them to make the project a success. Beth has a natural talent for interior design and great work ethics. Beth is the best choice in Santa Barbara and I highly recommend her for any residential or commercial projects you may have.
Thank You Beth.

As I approached a major remodel of a 100-year old farmhouse in Santa Barbara, I realized I needed help. I found Beth Dana on Houzz and loved the warmth her projects conveyed. At first, I only sought advice on paint colors. In her efficient way, Beth presented me with a range of colors and helped me to quickly narrow my choices and settle on a palette. She has a strong sense of color and is able to visualize the final outcome. But Beth was the gift that kept on giving. From colors, we moved to counter tops, floors, tiles, bathroom fixtures, lighting, and so much more. It was so nice to have a partner in this journey to guide and support me. At times when working alone with my contractor, he would look to me and say, “what do you think Beth would do?” With a great design sense and strong communication skills, Beth became an integral part of the team, as well as a new friend.

I got to know Beth Dana while helping a client with the remodel of her newly purchased home in Santa Barbara. Prior to becoming a realtor, I was a general contractor for 27 years. I have built many homes and done numerous remodels for clients. In all my years of experience, I have never dealt with an interior designer who was as easy to work with and who was as knowledgeable as Beth. She listened to my client’s vision and guided her through the process to create a showcase home that has few matches here in Santa Barbara. I have given Beth’s name out to numerous people and I am sure any of them who have the pleasure of working with Beth Dana Design will not be disappointed.

As a licensed general contractor specializing in fine home renovations and historical restorations in Santa Barbara, California, I have had the great pleasure to work closely with Beth Dana on several projects. I found Beth to have a creative and innovative eye for design that is tasteful, practical, and in my mind, the perfect balance of form and function. Beth’s integrative sense of color, shape, space, and texture maintain a refreshing continuity of design and originality. On more than one occasion, Beth was able to think outside the box in the face of design challenges and provide just the right solution, transforming the project in the most amazing way. Of equal importance to me was Beth’s skill in communicating with very discerning clients and coordinating with the various tradespeople to complete our projects in a timely and professional manner. I would and do recommend Beth Dana. I look forward to working with her in the future.

When I purchased my turn-of-the-century cottage, I knew it had good bones and a lot of potential, but I also knew it needed a lot of help! Beth shared her vision with me, especially in how removing a certain wall could make a world of difference in how the home flowed. She then guided me through the process of choosing tiles, paint colors, flooring, lighting, furnishings, and so much more! I adore my home now and could not have done this without her!

I found Beth Dana Design on Houzz. After visiting her website, I felt like we shared a similar aesthetic so I arranged to meet with her. She was very easy to talk to and her passion to help design spaces that are a sanctuary for the client was evident! The work that Beth and I engaged in was challenged by me being several thousand miles away, living in another state at the time. I can honestly say that I couldn’t have done it without her. Her calm nature was especially appreciated amid the craziness of a renovation! The end result speaks for itself. Thanks Beth!
