Home Tour: Family Napa Home with a Huge Wood Patio
Talk about the perfect family home! This spacious estate in Napa, California is a hidden gem with beautifully practical outdoor and indoor living spaces. With a expansive luxury kitchen, sparkling swimming pool, and a enormous outdoor deck ideal for outdoor entertaining, there really is something for everyone in this home.
The backyard of this home is where the main focus is at! California has beautiful weather almost all year around, so it’s logical to pay a lot of attention to outdoor living.
The home was built to be a family compound and to highlight the outdoor garden and deck area, which is perfect for family time. The wood patio was a good choice since wood tends to wear well and is super affordable.
I am in love with the outdoor deck – there are tons of wood grains and colors on the market to choose from, it’s just important to make sure you choose a timber that is durable, fits within your budget and suits your homes outdoor style.
Indoor and outdoor living is almost merged into one by finishing this living space with a rustic stucco finish. It really ties in with the Mediterranean style outdoors. The designer also included Moroccan accents for an exotic feel like the local artisan lighting and vegetable dyed carpets.
A big bay window and a cozy seating area makes this corner of the living room the ideal place to snuggle up to a good book. It was dressed up with a combo of Fortuny and custom lighting sconces. To give the home a more lived-in essence, French antiques were thrown into the mix.
If you have some extra space in your home, creating a kids nook where they can hang out, read books, play, and relax is probably one of the greatest investments you can make. This nook filled with toys, whimsical art lighting, and lots of comfy seating serves as a gathering place outside the children’s bunk rooms.
The heart of the home is always the kitchen and with a big bustling family, this open plan kitchen celebrates gatherings and cooking. The designer installed a copper hood to compliment the hand made artisan tile with bronze accents. The cabinets were painted gray to accent the large mahogany island.
The large, wooden deck is an ingenious way to create a comfortable outdoor living space. Instead of holding celebrations or every day festivities indoors, the covered deck provides ample seating space, a outdoor fireplace, stone pizza oven, couches, and even an outdoor television.
Along with the landscaped yard, the highlight of the backyard really is the wooden patio. Building a deck can be quite challenging for most, so it’s important to look at tons of models like Patio Living pergolas, patios, and other outdoor features before deciding on truly what you need and what will fit in your backyard.
