During the first full year of the pandemic, interior designer Jay Jeffers decided to see a 19th-century mansion on the outskirts of Healdsburg, a lively Wine-Country town.
He was not on a mission to buy a property, but the 1881 mansion with majestic views of the Dry Creek Valley took his breath away. Going from room to room, his vision of a colorful and richly decorated interior was becoming crystal clear.
Two years later, he opened a 24-room boutique hotel in California's Wine Country. As an avid fan of cutting-edge design, Jeffers collaborated with local artists to bring new life to the mansion while fully respecting its architectural heritage.
