This residence is designed for a retired professor and violinist who have been married for several years. In their spare time, they enjoy relaxing and entertaining. The design is inspired by Napa, a Northern Californian county known for its hundreds of hillside vineyards in the Napa Valley wine region. Because it is important to capture the clients' casually refined lifestyle, this design utilizes a combination of high end and natural elements to embody the elegant yet rustic feel that is displayed in a typical vineyard home.
