Dreamy remodel of a contemporary rural home in California wine country

dining room

This craftsman style home was designed by Wade Design Architects in collaboration with Jennifer Robin Interiors, located in St. Helena, a city in Napa County, California. The design team transformed an existing French farmhouse style interior into a dreamy contemporary rural home. The homeowners originally built their dream home in 2001, which overlooks Napa Valley.

The drawback to the original design was that it did not maximize the views of the spectacular surroundings. Additional problems with the design included an under-sized kitchen and the master bedroom suite being a jumble. Existing hinged doors were replaced with oversized sliding barn doors.

Casual interiors and an inviting landscape makes this home the perfect place to relax and enjoying quintessential California living. The new master bedroom suite is luxurious yet tranquil, just what the homeowners need after a day spent riding and caring for horses… Readers, what are your overall thoughts on this newly renovated home?

Above: The square footage of the kitchen was increased by using space from an adjacent hallway. The existing flooring in the kitchen was severely cracked and needed a new radiant heating system installed. The design team matched the original concrete color and its patina.
