Napa Style Living Room

Farm-to-table is a way of life in Napa, which means the kitchen and dining room distinctions tend to blur. Embrace the kitchen island as a place to serve up those meals prepared with local, seasonal ingredients. Don’t have a built-in island? Use a farmhouse table in the kitchen, which can flip from prep surface to dining area in an instant. Even formally set dining tables keep it mellow with Italian-influenced ceramics, pewter serving pieces, and cutting boards used as stand-ins for platters.

Napa Style Living Room

Unlike its foggy sister San Francisco, Napa is known for bringing the heat in terms of temperature, particularly in the summer, so outdoor spaces are given the same consideration as their indoor counterparts. The basic indoor decorating ideas apply: Elements should enhance (not overpower) the natural environment, so neutrals and natural materials are standard. Think weathered woods, zinc, marble, and touches of iron for things like lighting. As for greenery, combine the refinement of boxwood with unruly vineyard vines and sprays of lavender in—what else?—wine-barrel planters.

I had admired my friend Renee’s Napa Valley house from afar long before I got to know her. Hidden behind a wooden gate, the house itself was hard to see, but the low front fence and graveled outer garden gave the setup the appearance of being open yet private at the same time.

3 Of 17 California Living Room”The living room is simple and relaxing,” says Wade, “and very California in a rustic way.” Walls are painted Chestertown Buff by Benjamin Moore. Chairs, sofa, coffee table, rugs, floor lamps, pillows, basket, and cashmere throw are from Williams-Sonoma Home, as are the upholstery fabrics. “I love checks, the casualness of them. They’re like a no-print print. They can be modern, traditional, anything. And they’re great with stripes.” The ladder is from Vintage Home; the cross is a Santa Fe antique.

When Renee bought the land several years ago, there was nothing on it except a small vineyard and a well in the middle of the lot. She knew she wanted to design a structure that embraced indoor/outdoor living, and ultimately the well ended up dictating the plan: it became the central courtyard that the house is built around. Renee tells us, “I have the doors open all day for a lot of the year, and the courtyard has become an extension of the living room. The outdoor space feels very much part of the house.” Her indoor/outdoor mission duly accomplished.

Rustic and elegant are seemingly on opposite ends of the decorating spectrum, but homes in California’s wine country achieve both in equal measure. The key: balancing farmhouse-style bits of wood (repurposed barn doors are hot right now) with upholstery pieces covered in the ultimate luxe yet laid-back fabric, linen. As for the color palette, it’s all about earthy neutrals.

The gravitas of a well-chosen vintage piece mixed in with more-rustic finds can make a space feel superstylish without sacrificing the casual vibe this look is famous for. If your furniture layout calls for symmetry, resist the urge to buy matching pieces and instead mix things up with a set of mismatched, but complementary, flea market finds. We love the way the seriousness of, say, a Federal-style table can play off the country charm of a piece with spindle legs. As long as it’s wood and you stick to your palette, you’re good to go.

“I love how the guest bed is close to the floor,” says Wade. “It’s easy to roll into and just lounge there, like you’re in a cocoon.” He and Wade stayed in the room to make sure it had everything a guest would need, from good lighting to a notepad. “Upholstered beds are so popular right now,” says DeMattei. “They look cozy and inviting, and people want that more than ever.” Presidio bed, Williams-Sonoma Home.
