Mark Williams at the Mondavi Home
September 29, 2014
Last week, Trendspotter Mark Williams traveled to South Carolina to join the team from Cosentino at a party to celebrate the home of Rob and Lydia Mondavi. Here’s a glimpse at his experience:
As a Trendspotter for Silestone I get to go to some amazing places to see what’s going on in the world of design. I’ve never met a designer who doesn’t love to travel, and I’m no exception. Recently I had the opportunity to travel to Beaufort, South Carolina to visit the beach home of Rob and Lydia Mondavi, of the Mondavi wine family.
In addition to their wine business, Lydia also owns Spa 29 and her line of grape seed extract infused cosmetics also called 29. The connection to a serene spa-like environment is evident all over the home, most notably in the beautiful hues of paint that Lydia partnered with Benjamin Moore Paints to select distinct color palette in the home.
Myself, with a few other Cosentino counterparts, were invited to attend a beautiful low country boil at the house with Rob and Lydia to showcase their new home and all the beautiful materials inside, including Silestone! It was a great day all around, and I want to share some my Top 5 design moments of the Mondavi beach house…
5- Plenty of outdoor living space. (We’re not just talking about “space outdoors,” this screened porch comes equipped with a wet bar and its own built-in espresso machine.
4- Wine and Coffee everywhere. Master closet, both wine and coffee at arm’s reach, perfect for morning and evening. At the home office area you don’t even need to get up to satisfy your caffeine cravings! This is the mudroom. More wine than mud…
3- Silestone shower walls. Everybody hates cleaning grout in a bathroom, so who wouldn’t love their shower walls to be a beautiful solid slab of Silestone??
2- Prexury countertop at the wet bar. Delicious.
1- A light, bright, sun filled kitchen. I LOVE the combination of the Benjamin Moore Mondavi Home Collection cabinet color, Silestone countertops, and that beautiful Ann Sacks backsplash tile. This picture takes me right back to the fresh ocean air feeling at the house…
