A New Lease on Life    When these two homeowners bought this 1885 cabin, it was in such a run-down state that it had been on the market for several months—unheard of in the red-hot California Wine Country housing market. Structural work was done, but almost as dramatic was the facelift given to the facade and trim in the form of fresh paint in a contemporary palette. The stately dark paint restores dignity to the long-neglected building.

Who hasn’t dreamed of leaving the city behind for pastoral fields and life in the country?

This classy A-frame was originally cherry red; the new black paint gives off a much calmer vibe and allows the house to blend into its surroundings more easily. One feature the owner is particularly proud of is the decking material, which looks very much like the interior flooring and blurs the line between indoors and out. The landscaping looks like it evolved organically, but the owner planted most of it to make the plot look like even more of a woodland Shangri-La than it already was.
