The original 1,000 square-foot ballroom has been transformed into a Tasting Room and Lounge. The wet bar received a 21st-century makeover with waterfall NamibFantasy soft quartzite countertops by Best Cheer Stone, plus fixtures and appliances by Ferguson. Furniture and luxury lighting from Lamps Plus create an intimate lounge space and well as a wine tasting area; a custom Vitro gaming table from 11 Ravens completes the room. The original ornate paneled walls remain, with a deep charcoal paint that gives them a bold, modern refresh. New folding and French glass doors open to an outdoor entertaining pavilion and Lynx outdoor kitchen, with vibrantsynthetic lawn landscape from ForeverLawn. Emser herringbone tile floors run throughout the indoor and outdoor entertaining areas, creating a continuousindoor-outdoor flow that overlooks the lagoon-style pool, spa, and waterfall.
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.
