A Recent Interiors Photography Project of MacRostie Winery

My New Newsletter

I am excited to announce the launch of my newsletter. I know, I know... I have been meaning to do this for awhile. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

On my photo shoots, I see many beautiful interiors and decided you might be interested in seeing them as well. There is so much design talent in the San Francisco Bay Area and I have the good fortune of working with really talented designers, photographing their work for their websites, publications, contest entries and editorial stories.

For my July 2015 issue, I featured a project shot for MacRostie Winery of their new estate house in Sonoma. The interiors are by San Francisco designer Grant K. Gibson. I am thrilled to share it with you here.

MacRostie Winery

In late winter I photographed the amazing new estate house at MacRostie Winery. While the winery has been around since 1987, they had not had a tasting room - until now.

The estate house is 10 minutes outside of Healdsburg on Westside Road. Situated on a hill that overlooks the vineyard, there are dramatic views in every direction. We were fortunate to first arrive in the evening just after a rain, making for the most spectacular sky.

The Design Inspiration

The interiors are by San Francisco designer Grant K Gibson. He describes his goals, inspirations and selections: "I wanted to warm up the modern space by using soft colors like greens and pale lavenders, as well as pull in outside colors, and from the vines.  
 
For the artwork selected - I wanted to almost make them seem like windows.

Overall, my goal was to make the space feel as if you were coming into someone's private home - make the space like a living room or dining room that is inviting, warm and comfortable with layers and textures."

 MacRostie Winery's estate house tasting room features high ceilings and a large expanse of windows letting in streaming sunlight.
