There are some special places that calm you instantly. Just one hour outside of San Francisco lies one of these such places. It's friend's house in wine country, complete with a pool, pool house and idyllic vineyard views. From the first time I arrived to all of the subsequent visits, its relaxing presence always calms me. Add some wine and a swing on the hammock and I'm surprised you can pull me away from the place.
We recently shot the house to capture a few of the new additions. I worked with the owner, Bill and Kim, our photographer, to style and shoot all of the beautiful elements of the house. I love how the images turned out. It's almost like being there. The best part is that you can rent the house and make it all yours for the week or weekend.
