Rooms Inspired by Our Favorite Wines

Category: Life

Interior design innovators Laurel & Wolf are always inspiring us with their gorgeous decor ideas - we can easily picture ourselves enjoying a glass of wine in pretty much any of them. So when they asked if they could whip up some home designs based on a few of our wine’s personalities, we couldn’t wait to see what they came up with. In celebration of National Wine Day, kick back and enjoy these Laurel & Wolf designs inspired by Cape Route, Summer Water and Folly of the Beast.


White: Cape Route's Tropical Terrace

Why hello there, Cape Route. This Chenin Blanc comes from the Western Cape of South Africa, but has since found its home in SoCal. She's quite the jetsetter, if we don’t say so ourselves! This fun and carefree summer drink deserved a home as bright and vibrant as her disposition, so interior designer James Tabb created an effortlessly cool pad in a pink and turquoise color palette.

For a bold backdrop, Tabb went with pineapple wallpaper (a nod to Route's tropical taste). Playful colors and kitschy patterns seamlessly blend like the lychee, orange zest, peach, and grapefruit flavors of the wine.

The sheepskin throw provides the perfect pop of texture and comfort in this relaxing summer set up (and nods to the wine’s earthy, wooly aroma). African textiles remind her of her roots in South Africa and she can even place her wine glass on a wooden table reminiscent of the wine casks she grew old in.

So how does she like the new space?

"Warm, welcoming and bright are the first words that come to mind," she says. "It's my dream sunny retreat."

We'll cheers to that.


Rosé: Summer Water Rosé

Now, close your eyes and picture yourself lying on a beach in the South of France. The Mediterranean climate is perfect, the setting is ideal, and you're living it up in serious French style. And wherever you go, your BFF rosé is always close by, night and day. Her name is none other than Summer Water and her crisp, dry, and refreshing personality takes you to a tickled pink dream world.

When Summer Water came to town, interior designer Kimberly Winthrop made her feel right at home by  designing a guest space in her signature hue. A glam chaise longue and a fun flamingo-print wallpaper is just her style.

To go along with her French-girl flair, Winthrop added in an antique rug, a colorful diptych and a banana leaf plant. Summer Water and her adorable room are ready for rosé-all-day. Don’t you think?


Red: Folly of the Beast

Okay, we may have had to look high and low for him, but Folly of the Beast is definitely worth it. This full-bodied, yet unintimidating pinot noir is the kind of guy you want to bring home to Mom. So Winthrop designed a cozy library that's ideal for fine wines.

Nautical art pays homage to Folly's past on the Central Coast of California. Inspired by Folly's seasonal notes of cloves, vanilla and cinnamon, Winthrop included thick materials like leather and wool. And in order to showcase the wine's silky smooth finish, Winthrop topped off the design with a luxurious
