Contemporary and rustic styles complement and contrast in a wine country home from Jennifer Robin Interiors. Since the country estates overlooks vineyards of home-grown grapes — the clients are a pair of winemakers — the designer, Jennifer Macdonald, prioritized the vast views, weaving in muted tones that wouldn't compete with the surroundings, as well as the blue shades of the hills at dusk. Modern touches, like a glossy breakfast table and contemporary lighting fixtures, complement the valley landscapes.
The scale of the home was inspiring, yet at first, overwhelming. "One of the challenges was to design the interiors in a way that would bring you back to earth — to humanize the experience by bringing the scale down and comfort level up so as to transform the residence into an inviting home," says the designer.
