Wine Country Retreat


Dec 17, 2015

Take a look at this breathtaking estate in Napa county, California. A retreat that’s complete with guest house and offers several locations to enjoy the outdoors throughout the change of the seasons. Designed by the very talented team of Andrew Mann Architects, this private vacation compound has dramatic views of the surrounding vineyards and mountains beyond. The interior was designed by one of my favorite designers – Kara Mann. According to the architect, “the client wished to create an updated, contemporary take on the traditional country house. The buildings all open to a simple, elegant and lush private garden, with house and landscape accentuating outdoor living spaces. Exterior materials and interior finishes are luxurious in texture and define a simple white and grey-tone color palette.”

I love so many aspects of this home – let me take you through some of the pictures …

and as always … Thank you for taking the time to read HAVEN STUDIOS’ blog!
