Xorin Balbes

DESIGNER, DEVELOPER

Award-winning architectural conservator, lauded designer, and philanthropist, Xorin Balbes discovered his passion and vision for the design and re-design process while renovating his first home in Santa Barbara.

Xorin harbors an impressive high-profile celebrity client list, and is also well known for his remarkable restorations of several architecturally significant properties in the Los Angeles area including the Sowden House, a 1926 Lloyd Wright; Talmadge Villa, the Los Feliz replica of a 17th century Italian villa and the former home of 1920s screen legend, Norma Talmadge, and the award-winning restoration of the 1926 Art Deco Security-First Pacific Bank.

Xorin’s impressive succession of re-designs and renovations encouraged him to develop his own philosophy for home design entitled, SoulSpace. The process was born out of Xorin’s discovery of a deeper purpose and meaning in his life, and his aspiration to share this deeper more soulful way of living with others.

SoulSpace

Transform Your Home, Transform Your Life

Xorin Balbes created his eight-stage SoulSpace process to help his clients create homes that reflect and celebrate what is essential about their inhabitants. The process works for any budget, anytime, anywhere and results in inspiration, self-discovery, and practical solutions.

Through the stages — assess, release, cleanse, dream, discover, create, elevate, and celebrate — you will explore not only the design of your abode but also your own interior: how you think, feel, and sense the world.

Empowered with this self-knowledge, you will discover fresh ways to declutter, refresh, and enhance your living space. Xorin’s wonderfully unique technique will nurture and transform both your soul and your home.
