Traditional Home's annual Napa Valley Showcase is always a fun event. It tends to be a bit more relaxed than similar design showcases in the Bay Area, probably due to the fact that the participants tap into the Wine Country look of the more rural, more small-town locations. This time, the event happens in not one, but three historic buildings on Randolph Street in downtown Napa (including a bungalow and a Tudor Revival home). The work of more than 20 designers is featured, but today we take you inside rooms by seven Bay Area designers. You can see the whole project through November 15, and there's a big gala event on November 13.
↑ Dining Room by Julie Rootes Interiors Rootes makes the classic cabinet pop by covering the back of it with a vivid turquoise lacquer and filling the bar beneath with wine bottles adorned with whimsical door hardware. A hand painted wall covering gives the room a subtle texture.
↑ Living Room by Elena Calabrese Design & Decor Calabrese created a lustrous blue-stone plaster with decorative painter Caroline Lizarraga, making the room glow with a pearly sheen. It's enhanced by Maya Romanoff's handmade wallpaper that's crafted with mica and applied to the ceiling.
↑ Guest Bedroom by Nanette Design This bedroom was designed with the owner's mother in mind. Nannette Gordon tapped into the colors of the Napa Valley for inspiration.
↑ Kitchen by Catherine Macfee Interior Design Catherine and Justine Macfee were inspired by the owner's winemaking profession when designing the kitchen, dining nook, and butler's pantry. The space is done with warm colors and handcrafted materials (like the hand-forged metal peninsula).
↑ Guest Bedroom by Monogram Decor Designer Courtney Lake imagined Napa Valley nights as seen through an Out of Africa lens. That means blue toned, tiger-print drapes and multifunctional custom pieces that make the space work as a guest bedroom or an office.
↑ Master Dressing Room by Lizette Marie Interior Design Lizette Marie Bruckstein designed a master dressing room using her new candle collection as a creative spark. Her forthcoming line includes Homme and Femme candles that, when burned together, produce one seductive scent. Her space in the Showcase house also mixes masculine and feminine elements for a single moody look.
↑ Master Bedroom by David Hansen Design David Hansen incorporated the homeowners' love of travel and art into this bedroom, while preserving the home's Craftsman architecture. Antiques and vintage pieces play a big role in the room, including a lacquered chest, a pair of T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings nightstands, and an antique rug.
