Mondavi Home Celebrates Low Country Style
I knew from the moment I met Rob Mondavi and his wife Lydia at the International Builders Show last year I liked their style.
Their spectacular new flooring line that they were launching with Authentic Reclaimed Flooring caught my eye even though they were tucked away in a corner of the huge convention floor. I was infatuated by the spectacular naturally stained woods, especially when I learned that they were made out of decommissioned wine casks. We chatted for awhile and since I planned on writing about this flooring on my websites I asked for his name and spelling. M.o.n.d.a.v.i - oh, that winery and that family! That's how wonderful the floors were - I never even realized who I was talking to.
Rob and Lydia shared that they were starting Mondavi Home and were getting ready to build a show home in the "Low Country" - Beaufort, South Carolina. They were anxious to build a home that reflected their lifestyle and the casual, comfortable way they like to entertain. I asked Rob if he had looked at any of the Thermador appliances, and he had not been made aware of the amazing wine columns Thermador designs as well as their other products that would fit in perfectly with what they wanted to achieve.
Once Rob and Lydia saw the wine colummns and other Thermador products at the show they were as sold on them as I have been, and now their new home features all Thermador appliances.
They were kind enough to send me photos of the completed home, and it lives up to all of my expectations. The Mondavis have a 3 yr old son and the home is designed to have kids and guests running through the home with or without shoes on and a glass of Spellbound Cabernet in the adult guests glasses.
