Get The Look
Set among ancient oaks and a newly planted vineyard, the farmhouse in Central California’s horse and wine country is a sunny blend of good taste, fine finishes, and amenities designed to welcome family and enjoy the lovely landscape and laid-back lifestyle.
THE RIGHT LIGHT: A natural element can also be glamorous as evidenced by the split-rattan open-weave Andorra wicker pendant light. Because it’s made by hand, each sculptural fixture is unique. $1,562; lightology.com.
REFINED RATTAN: For those who prefer dining chairs with a little cushion, save the natural weave for an accent. A pair of Pembroke side chairs in an antique finish are the right choice for either side of an antique buffet. $532 for two; themayfairhall.com
BAR STAR: Add an industrial element to the kitchen by pulling up a few Brenner leather bar stools to the island. Comfort is key thanks to a leather-clad seat that sits atop hand-welded metal legs. $199 for one (set of two $318); potterybarn.com
CATTLE CALL: Give a nod to the herd in the great outdoors with an indoor gallery wall anchored by a colorful oil painting. The unframed cow canvas is available in five different sizes, ranging from 20-by-20-inch to 48-by-48-inch. From $101; ymipainting.etsy.com
BUCKLE UP: It’s rare to find cozy seating that’s also a conversation piece, but the Byron leather-and-birch occasional armchair more than delivers thanks to its sleek design and buckle embellishment on each side. $2,229; kathykuohome.com
REST ASSURED: After a long, full day at the homestead, what could be sweeter than climbing into a white oak four-poster bed? CFC Furniture’s contemporary canopy works with almost any design scheme from modern to traditional. $6,818; houzz.com
SUPER SOAKER: Achieve serenity now with a freestanding tub that’s both restorative and the jewel of the bathroom. The 19th-century-inspired Clothilde handmade copper bath (lined with tin) is almost too pretty to take a dip in. $62,580; waterworks.com
VIP SEATING: Party guests are sure to sit and sip awhile after plopping down on the Harmony sectional. Not only is it comfortable, but its high-performance velvet upholstery means red-wine accidents aren’t the end of the world. From $2,998 (if you catch a sale); westelm.com
