Traditional Home Napa Valley Home Tour 2015
We toured the 2015 Napa Valley Designer Showhouse this past weekend. There were so many beautiful spaces, so many that the tour consisted of two homes, a 1880’s bungalow, and a 1935 tudor revival, as well as the carriage house at The Inn on Randolph.
Today we are going to talk kitchens. The show stopper of the first home, the 1880’s Bungalow was the heart of the home, the kitchen. The kitchen was designed by Kitchen Design Network. We loved the mix of old and new. The footprint we were told stay mostly the same as the old kitchen, but the space was maximized with new cabinetry and a center island.
The flooring, from Veranda Tile Design, was mesmerizing. Each tile is made through a process called encaustic, which allows the tiles to be environmentally friendly as they are not dried in a traditional kiln like many other hand painted tiles. The details started in the flooring and worked their way up to a beautiful ceiling design. The molding (Ceiling Tracery TRA100) is from The Decorators Supply Corp.
The second kitchen was in House 2, the 1935 Tudor Revival. The Design was done by Catherine Macfee Interior Design. The tones were different than the first home, but definitely did not disappoint. We loved the mix of copper and rustic wood shelving (shelving by Sierra Vintage). The marble mosaic backsplash (elongated hex mosaic in snow flower by crossville inc) and the Cambria Quartz countertops provided ample reflection of light through the space. It was amazing to see a space that was filled with so many dark finishes feel so bright.
The Butler’s Pantry was painted in Mt. Vernon Green by Pratt & Lambert. It is a great color combination with the copper and wood and really draws you back into the space.
The Breakfast Nook that is connected to the Kitchen also brings in some copper, with its massive pendant that was found at an antique shop. The bench frame and table base were custom made through Sierra Vintage.
Tickets to view these beautiful spaces are still available through Nov 13 2015.
