Design Firm: STUDIO COLLINS WEIR
Perched above the Sonoma Valley in Northern CA this retreat is designed as a refined agrarian shed in the landscape. The interior designer worked with client and architect to curate a home that is reflective of their desire to be surrounded by a rich landscape viewed from every room.
On the upper level, a mixture of textured grey fabrics and bleached woods are sympathetic to the neutral architectural palette. Contrasting points of color in the form of an olive green leather Eames lounge and a russet colored Paulistano chair by Paulo Mendes da Rocha as well as a grey David Weeks mobile pendant help to balance the space. The effect of the neutral palette and spare use of color is to project the occupants into the greenery that surrounds them.
In contrast the lower level pulls the landscape into the home with two custom pieces of furniture designed in house and hewn from a single slab of reclaimed walnut and blackened steel plate. The first of these is a massive dining table with seating for ten. A delicate chandelier from Michael Anastsiades floats above this minimal vignette. The second piece is a drum shaped coffee table that is set with a B&B sectional sofa and a pair of vintage lounge chairs designed by Augusto Bozzi. A custom designed rug produced by Taiping Carpets completes the darker, subdued palette on this level. The effect is to visually bridge the gap between the landscape and the interior.VOTE HERE
