A busy San Francisco family were in search of a Sonoma retreat to escape on the weekends to entertain friends and enjoy the outdoors with their young children. They purchased a beautiful property in Sonoma with rolling hills and a charming partly renovated Horse Barn. They had a vision of a beautiful modern ranch home with all the amenities, a relaxed vacation feel and an expansive outdoor space. Le Rêve Interiors worked closely with the homeowners and contractors to renovated the existing barn and add additional square footage including a New Master bedroom and en-suite bath, power room and laundry room. Le Rêve Interiors completely renovated the kitchen space to have an industrial feel with no upper cabinets and all under counter hidden appliances to create an open kitchen space for entertaining that is chef worthy. Le Rêve Interiors also selected all new finishes and fixtures to customize the space.
The furnishings blend classic pieces with modern edge for a relaxed, informal vibe. Textural rugs and fabrics and hand crafted iron and wood pieces add warmth and layers to the space. The new bathrooms were designed with a modern farmhouse vibe. Clean white large format subway tile backdrop the rustic vanities and brass fixtures. A variety of local artisans left their touch on the home, including a custom reclaimed dining table and herringbone cladded bar. It is place to relax, unwind and enjoy for years to come.
"It was such a pleasure working with Suzanne! I really appreciated how she listened and really "got" what style we were going for. In fact, we didn't have a solid idea on what style we wanted or how to use the wide open space in the great room. Suzanne guided us through different styles and layouts, until we found the one that we loved. I especially appreciated how she would guide me with a firm hand when I go astray with random designs back to the design concept. Yet she was never dismissive, and if it's something I really liked she tried to incorporate it into the design concept. Suzanne is professional yet friendly, responsible, and very good with communication. I look forward to working with her again when we start the remodel of other parts of our house.! "
