Napa Carriage House by Kim Scodro Interiors

A Comfortable Country Getaway

For some people, redesigning a space into a relaxing haven might mean going for a thicker, softer blanket, or using a few extra throw pillows here and there. But when award-winning interior designer Kim Scodro designs a relaxing space, she pushes comfort to its highest level, creating a space that seems almost as pillowy-soft and welcoming as the inside of a cloud at sunrise. This carriage house, a part of the Inn on Randolph in Napa Valley, was created by Kim as part of the 2015 series of showhouses by Traditional Home magazine. Its sense of gracious hospitality and utter relaxation comes through even in photos, mostly due to the dainty and muted palette of soft blues and palest pinks, but also due in large part to all the wonderful upholstered furniture by our friends at LEE Industries. Bright golds peek through here and there like the sun at the break of day–we can just imagine ourselves waking up in this beautiful room, can’t you?

For those who are near the Napa Valley area and will be able to visit the 2015 Traditional Home Showhouses in person, tickets are on sale through November 15th. For the rest of us, the REstyleSOURCE team checked in with the designer herslf to get some insights into the design process behind this charming little carriage house, and of course, lots of lovely photographs. We’re also sharing our REstyle picks inspired by Kim’s design so that you can put together a similarly relaxed and elegant look in your own space!

There are so many amazing pieces in this room but my personal favorite is the LEE tufted sofa.  The brass highlights add such a current vibe to this classic tufted piece!

napa2Designer Notes

“There were quite a few challenges with this carriage house space due to its smaller size.  Our goal was to incorporate a full bath along with all the amenities of a luxury master suite.  The compact dimensions of the LEE fully upholstered beds and sofa enabled us to fit it all in and not have to comprise the overall design and luxurious feel.”

We envisioned creating a room that would be comfortable and relaxing after a day spent wine-tasting and touring in Napa.

We’re loving the peaked architectural detail seen above, as a great way to add a touch of texture and interest to a wall with limited space. And those double rolling barn doors are the perfect touch for this serene and glamorous country-chic getaway! Not only do they heighten the bedroom’s drama with their size and movement, but they’re actually a great way to maximize usable area in a small space, as well: since they don’t swing open or shut, you’re left with more open space and a greater sense of freedom.

Using a muted palette with hints of interesting shapes and textures keeps this calm room design feeling fun and refreshing!

“We were so lucky to use the LEE outdoor furniture as part of our space​. Since the outdoor and indoor space essentially flow together, it was necessary to keep the pieces in both spaces complementary. With LEE’s outdoor collection and its ‘custom’ feel, you feel like you are able to sidestep that generic look for something really special.​”
