Garde Summerland: A 1921 Antiques Barn Turned Shoppable Apartment from an LA Design Favorite

September 13, 2018

We first wrote about Garde, the California purveyors of a who’s who list of Remodelista favorites (Workstead, Faye Toogood, and Egg Collective, just to name a few) way back in 2012. Then, and until now, they had one shop—in a former electronics store on Beverly Boulevard in LA (see that first look at their shop in Garde in Los Angeles).

But a few weeks ago, Garde opened their highly anticipated second location, in a rehabbed, circa-1921 antiques barn in the hamlet of Summerland in Santa Barbara. The first floor houses a shoppable gallery; upstairs is a rentable apartment, kitted out with Garde’s wares, Portola Paints in custom hues, Anglepoise lighting, even a custom Mad et Len scent. Take a look.

It’s painted in Portola Paint (a custom line of hues, created for Garde, will be available for sale); the sofa is Garde’s own design, from their first in-house furniture line.

The apartment is available for stays at a rate of $350 per night (with a two-night minimum stay); see Garde House to book.

Shoppable, rentable apartments—where you can get some rest and then buy the bed, if you like it—are trending. Here are three more favorites around the world:
