SURFACES Showhome: Calibu Vineyard by Jennifer Farrell


To create a spa-like retreat in the new Master Bath, original soffits and mirrored walls were replaced with high ceilings and a glass wet room. Satin gold fixtures from House of Rohl accent a floor-to-ceiling Arabescato porcelain slab from Emser tile. A custom-colored matte gray and white soaking tub from Victoria + Albert becomes a sculptural centerpiece in the wet room. Continuing the gray and gold tones in the vanity area, weathered oak Signature Hardware vanities reach new elegance with a backdrop of unique Lamps Plus pendants and Emser tile. The overall effect is both aesthetically soothing and visually exciting in this spacious new bath suite.

Bath Suite Design Q&A with Jennifer Farrell

The trend of the wet room in the bathroom is one that really should never go away.  Why did we ever separate the soaking tub from the walk-in shower?  A beautiful glass room where you can splash your way from a great big tub to a spacious shower area without worrying about water or steam affecting the rest of the bath suite…please let’s keep this trend. At Calibu Vineyard, the wet room is the star in the Master Bathroom.  With Emser Tile on the floor and ceiling plus porcelain slabs on the focal wall, a custom color Victoria + Albert soaking tub, dramatic Lamps Plus waterproof pendant lighting, and Riobel satin gold shower heads all around, the wet room becomes its own fantasy spa suite.  No matter what the square footage or budget, every home needs a wet room!

I’ve had a somewhat unique journey over the last two decades, balancing my television persona with my interior design career.  Sometimes the two have been mutually supportive, sometimes a bit at odds. I think the key moments that changed my trajectory were when my design projects began to be featured on nationally recognized design tours, like Dwell on Design and The Venice Garden and Home Tour. I found myself along side internationally revered architects and designers like Marmol/Radziner, Jay Griffith, William Baker, and other game changers who have inspired me over the years.  Having my work exhibited alongside theirs definitely helped evolve the way I’m viewed in the design industry.

My aesthetic style is all about bold, clean drama, with a nod to the past, present, and future of design.  That translates in different ways on different projects, but I’m hoping to capture the essence of that thought at Calibu Vineyard. I’m bringing in signature statement pieces that are the ultimate in bespoke design – like designer tile from Emser and couture furnishings from Hector Landgrave Furniture – and marrying those items with leading-edge technology, like smart appliances from Monogram and energy-efficient luxury
lighting from Lamps Plus.  Then I get to take that one step further with future-forward technology, like a photo-realistic 3D immersible visualization of the entire project, as created by Visualizer+.  The balance of heirloom quality with state-of-the-art technology is an exciting balance for me, and one I’m relishing while creating Calibu Vineyard.

Under Construction

Welcome to the
Contractor Corner

The SURFACES Showhome: Calibu Vineyard is under construction and the contractors are working diligently in the primary bath suite! While you are seeing the beautiful virtual imagery above, contractors, installers, and service providers are turning the dated home into a magical vineyard estate. TISE Tv had Jennifer interview the crews. Here's a peak at the home under construction and a sound-bite or two from the interviews with the crew working on the project as they share what is new, different, or challenging from the contractor's perspective!

TISE Tv talked to Avo Dagesyan, Reliable Stone Work, Chief fabricator for the stone surfaces at Calibu Vineyard.

When you are installing the vertical slabs, what is the trick to make those patterns match up such as with a continuous pattern or a bookmatch?
"It begins with playing around with the pieces in the shop and putting the pieces together - seeing how good they match up together. We put the pieces together on A frames and move the different pieces around with the forklift to try to match them up as best as possible."

What are some of the specialty tools you have to use with porcelain slabs since they are so thin but they are large pieces? "Diamond special blades for porcelain to cut them and to move them around there are special clamps to move the pieces around."

Are their design pieces at Calibu that you have not seen or installed before? "The kitchen farmhouse sink in the Calibu Kitchen. Also, I've done a lot of quartz but not a leathery finish quartz like you are using here at Calibu. And the quartz slabs used going into the living room as steps with the velvet finish."
