Rustic Yet Refined, Healdsburg Edition – Fabulous!
Alison Davin of Jute is making a name for herself in the Bay Area with her “urban earthy” interiors, ranging from a small kitchen makeover in San Francisco to grander projects like this comfortable, subtly luxurious stone vacation house in Healdsburg, in Sonoma County, by Arc Design.
The grounds, which include a pair of ancient olive trees, were designed by local landscape architects Lucas & Lucas.
Davin’s influences range from the pared-down baroque work of Copenhagen-based Malene Birger to the greenery-infused interiors of California designer John Saladino, and in this project, with its muted palette and skillful mix of textures and textiles, discerning the boundaries between indoors and out isn’t always straightforward.

Oversize metal factory windows overlook the rolling landscape.
In the master bedroom, a partition ends at the ceiling with a transom that is trimmed and runs seamlessly into the exposed ceiling beams. The transom brings morning light into the room. Bed linens from Rough Linen’s Orkney Collection match the headboard upholstery. The steel-frame bed was designed by Jute and fabricated by Andrew Woodside Carter.
In the powder room, Jute designed a custom wood commode to use as a vanity with a concrete basin top in a custom putty color. French ceramic sconces from Hector Finch Lighting in London hang on either side of an English antique mirror from Galerie Half in Los Angeles.
