2014 Napa Valley Showhouse
Main House: Living Room
Cathleen Gouveia,
Cathleen Gouveia Design,

Cathleen Gouveia’s mantra for this central living room is “what once was old is new again.” She inverts the idea of the iconic “farmhouse” by playing light against dark, rustic against refined. The room celebrates the elements of wood, metal, glass, and stone.

The floor and ceiling planes float horizontally as the walls recede in the space. The core provides a backdrop to silhouette the textures of bespoke custom home furnishings, and like a still life painting, it brings them all to life.
