Napa/Sonoma Valley, California: Hotel + Restaurant Design

April 15, 2010 § 2 Comments

The Carneros Inn., Napa Valley

A Plumpjack Resort

The resort interpreted early California farms with modern authenticity. Artfully and comfortably furnished. The room is cleverly designed to maximize comfort and minimize space. One of my favorite parts is where shower area leads to an alfresco shower and a private lush garden. No worries, heat lamps for a cool evening. Umbrellas for shade with a flowering garden. It’s a refreshing modern cottage. The safe box is hidden on the bottom of nightstand, great location placement.  During Spring, the weather can get a bit windy. Grab a book, kick off your shoes and light up the fireplace!

Vinyard Cottage

Each indoor space opens to unite with the outdoor space, expanding the living experience to the outdoors. It’s an exclusive getaway.

The neutral color palette harmoniously combines with its outdoor landscape. The experience was unpretentious yet vibrant. We definitely enjoyed the scenic apple orchards and endless rows of grape vines nestled among farmland.


Boon Fly Cafe

There’s no better way to start the morning then with mini home made donuts and a cup of Americano! The space kept the similar quaint feel as the Carneros Inn. Both sites are on the same premises. The design is a refined barn house chic. Clean and fresh reflect its delicious menu.


Fast Food Cafe Restaurant

I’ve gathered some inspiration for a fast food cafe restaurant located in Arcadia, California. The owner is mid-20 young entrepreneur. The design concept needs to reflect the menu: vibrant, fresh and crisp.  I’ll follow up with more details later.
