La Tarantella

Posted on Fri, 25 Aug 2023 by KiM

Set on 102 acres of land amidst the Santa Ynez Mountains, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees, La Tarantella by Grassini Family Vineyards was originally designed and built by Los Angeles architecture firm Choate Associates as a private residence.  The original homeowners’ passion for Spanish, French and Italian architecture lead them to integrate interior architectural elements such as columns, fireplace surrounds and lighting that date back to the 18th and 19th centuries. Grassini Family Vineyards, along with Corinne Mathern Studio transformed La Tarantella into an event and hospitality space in 2022. Corinne Mathern Studio pulled hues of the olive trees, vines and hills to the interior through a muted palette of neutrals, sage greens, dusty blues, chocolate browns, deep rusts, tans and creams for a sense of harmony. Corinne Mathern Studio designed the oak millwork throughout the entire property to complement the cedar and Douglas fir ceilings.
The architectural details of this home are a wonderful starting point and the vintage mixed with contemporary furnishings makes this home more fresh and “now”. And that pale terracotta plaster exterior is absolutely delightful.
