This weekend marks the debut of the Napa Valley Showhouse hosted by Traditional Home magazine, which is a fundraiser for next month’s Napa Valley Film Festival. I look forward to this showhouse every year because I feel so lucky to have this event right in my backyard. This year, the tour was in downtown Napa on Randolph Street and consisted of two 1930s bungalows as well as the B&B, Inn on Randolph, just down the block. The homes were equally beautiful, but very different stylistically.
The adjacent dining room was designed by Marin County designer, Julie Rootes, who also did a killer powder room in the SF Decorator Showhouse last spring. The star of her room was the drapery fabric by one of my favorite artists from New Orleans, Amanda Talley, who is also making textiles now.
Adjacent to the Living Room was a small Den with a Powder Room, which was also designed by a San Francisco based interior designer whose work I admire, Kriste Michelini. The space had a nice contrast of white with bright turquoise. I especially enjoyed the powder room.
I loved this triangle shaped mirror, which also made an appearance in the Carriage House bathroom at the Inn on Randolph. A funny coincidence between the two designers, I’m sure.
The master bedroom was a beautiful shade of blue from floor to ceiling. Everything was painted blue from the walls to the trim and even the roman shade matched.
The bathroom was one of my favorite spaces in the house and was designed by the very lovely, Lisa Mende, from North Carolina. Lisa and I have connected through a networking group of interior designers that we both belong to, so it was fun to see one of her spaces in my neck of the woods. She recently completed a kitchen in the Traditional Home Showhouse in High Point, NC that was beyond gorgeous!
The kitchen was gorgeous from head to toe! Literally everything from the detail on the ceiling to the gorgeous concrete tiles was perfection. So on trend and yet so timeless at the same time. I loved everything about it.
I loved the oversized artwork in this guest room by Courtney Lake.
The house next door, 375 Randolph Street, is owned by the lovely Drew Neiman of Neiman Cellars. This house had a completely different feel to it the moment you walked in. Much more neutral and sophisticated and a really large three-story floor plan that looked like a quant cottage from the street.
The living room was one of my favorite rooms in the home. It was modern and sophisticated, but it also felt like wine country to me. The colors and materials were certainly on point for this region.
Loved the work of Danielle Mourning in this dining room by Elana Calabrese.
The kitchen in this house was designed by mother-daughter duo Catherine and Justine MacFee. They also did the kitchen in the Caldwell Vineyard’s house last year, and it was one of my personal favorites. I love their work. They are based in Lake Tahoe, so I definitely appreciate their rustic, mountain inspired interiors.
This bathroom by Miyuki Yamaguchi was gorgeous and totally creative. If you look closely, the sconces have bird cages painted on the walls behind them. It’s a bit of an optical illusion and I loved it! The tile scheme was also very creative and very well done.
This guest room by Nanette Gordon was beautiful and my photos don’t do it justice. I love how she used pendants hanging from the ceilings next to the bed since the space was so narrow and therefore not conducive to big bedside table lamps. The bedding was a new collection from Frette Linens and apparently cost a small fortune.
The third floor of the house was one giant master suite including a walk-in closet and this little seating area. It was a fantastic space with arched ceilings and nooks everywhere.
Just down the street is the Inn on Randolph, which looks to be a very nice Bed & Breakfast. I hadn’t been there before, but after seeing the Carriage House designed by Kim Scodro and walking around the grounds, I would highly recommend staying here.
I have to say, this was my favorite space in the entire tour. Part of the reason is because it’s such a gorgeous space with giant tall ceilings and tons of natural light. The designer definitely had a great starting off point. But the colors, textiles, and bathroom tile all resonated with my style. Loved it!
The art and chandelier from Circa Lighting were also personal favorites!
