Traditional Home Napa Valley Showhouse REVEAL!

We couldn’t say “YES” fast enough when Traditional Home asked us to design a room for their Napa Valley Showhouse this year. Located at Charles Krug, which happens to be the oldest winery in the area, we took on the task of designing the front sitting room in Peter Mondavi Jr.’s former home located on the property.

Tory Burch’s house in Southampton instantly came to mind as inspiration – a chic layered look with a global flair. We selected Meg Braff’s “Ferns” wallpaper as the perfect canvas to complement Napa’s understated, yet charming atmosphere. From there we brought in muted tones of jade green, slate blue, and coral mixed with brass accents. Our goal was to stay true to the surroundings but with a touch of glamour and sophistication.

A HUGE thank you to all the vendors that donated and loaned us everything for the space. It couldn’t have been done without their enormous generosity…we’re so excited to finally reveal the finished product!

1Meg Braff’s grey and white “Ferns” wallpaper was the first thing we selected to set the tone for the whole room. The wall-to-wall sisal from Holland & Sherry gives a casual & inviting vibe layered with a 1940s vintage Moroccan rug.

2 We’ve been lusting after these chairs from Jeffrey Alan Marks‘ collection for Palecek for a while so we were really excited to finally use them. The cushions and throw pillows on the sofa are upholstered in our favorite MK Collection fabric – “Spot On” in Arctic.


The ceilings, doors, and trim are painted in Benjamin Moore’s “Chantilly Lace” – one of our go-to paint colors!


 The oversize brass mirror from Made Goods serves as a focal point over a parchment covered console and hide benches from Coup d’Etat in San Francisco. The pair of table lamps are from Ro Sham Beaux with custom silk shades and the framed Mandalas are from Harbinger.


The Parisian inspired settee is from Cisco Home which is off set with jade green garden stools from Made Goods. The vintage 1970s metal floor lamps (complete with a pair of Strawberry Fields Forever finials!) and glass cocktail tables are also from Coup d’Etat.

6Books are the best accessory! Thank you so much to Martin Showroom and Ma(i)sonry (two must-visit design stores in Napa) for letting us borrow these fabulous tomes for our room.


Inner Gardens provided the tree and square basket. The barware is from the online shop of yours truly and the art is by Alex K. Mason.


Fully stocked!


The giant marble bowl and shagreen box are from Made Goods. The gorgeous succulent arrangement was done by local floral designer Julie Stevens.


Julie also did this pretty little arrangement of pink dahlias.


The African bone beads are also from Martin Showroom in St. Helena.


The Showhouse is open until November 17th so if you’re in Napa be sure to check it out – and have a wine tasting while you’re at it! More info here.

And an extra special thanks to Patrick Cline for taking all these gorgeous photographs. Check out his new website UPLO if you haven’t already – an awesome way of printing and sharing photos that we’re totally addicted to!
