A modern home (opens in new tab) in a bungalow style with concrete surfaces, minimalist design and inviting outdoor spaces, all with stunning vineyard views of NorthernCalifornia'swine country. Built in the 1960's, the property was in desperate need for an overhaul, so the new owners brought on Amy Weaver Design (opens in new tab) to up the style. The designers came in and created a calm and modern look, using light woods, concrete flooring, grey and stone worn cabinets, and Phillip Jeffries wallpapers.
The designers installed lacquered flooring in the foyer / entrance hall in a shiny black finish. A reproduction from Myra Hoeffer’s estate in white plaster was heavily gilded to create a dramatic backdrop to the quietude of the finishes in the home.
The open-plan kitchen, dining and living area has a striking steel fireplace at one end, and a modern kitchen island at the other end. The rest of the materials are mostly warm and natural.
A custom made boat-shaped pendant hangs above the coffee table.
An oversized pendant hangs above the modern kitchen island. There's an interesting contrast of materials; stone flooring, plaster walls, a concrete kitchen island, sanded wood cabinets, leather upholstered bar stools and a mesh pendant. The lighting for this property was primarily custom made by Paul Ferrante and Tuell and Reynolds.
There's also a laundry room, with modern built-in wood shelving, a large marble sink, washing appliances and an under-sink skirt to hide away cleaning products.
The cloakroom is another textural space, with a Phillip Jeffreys woven wallcovering, a sliding barn-style door and a marble sink.
The master bedroom is a calm, serene space. The four poster adds grown-up elegance.
The bathroom feels rustic and masculine, with the same earthy colour palette as the rest of the home, but with industrial bulb lighting, a dark shower enclosure, industrial-inspired vanity and stone basin.
The guest bedrooms feature Phillip Jeffries plain wall coverings, with further texture woven in through upholstered headboards, soft rugs and window treatments.
Fabrics are from Holland and Sherry, Cowtan & Tout and Clarence House.
the property features expansive decks with sweeping views.
There are several different outdoor seating, lounging and eating areas throughout the property.
A lot of the outdoor furniture was hand crafted by local artisans create timeless furniture in wood and metal. Outdoor fabrics are from Perennials.
