The "nooks and crannies" tour begins with details of the bedrooms and their bathrooms, then the main living areas. I've tried to include close-up details in each room.
Some of these photos I've never before featured, and some you may recognize.
Above, is the pool house bedroom. It's a cozy little room, perched atop the pool house and subsequently has some fantastic views.
The bed is from Restoration Hardware and the accessories, including the bedside tables are either from the flea market or antique stores.
Downstairs, the bathroom also serves as a changing room for the pool and spa.
A pair of terry robes and spa slippers are at the ready.
There are two en suite bedrooms in the main house.
This one is upholstered in a lively linen stripe, giving it the atmosphere of a circus tent.
The linen headboard is from Pottery Barn, the bedside tables, alabaster lamps and accessories are vintage.
The tiny bathroom that services this bedroom packs a lot of punch in the small space.
It definitely qualifies as a nook and cranny!
Right next door is the "master" bedroom, only because it has a king bed and a larger bathroom.
The bed is from a local consignment store. The walls are also upholstered, this time in a taupe linen.
Both bathrooms have black granite countertops and black slate floors.
The shower and tub surrounds are tiled with extra large white subway tile.
Walls are a golden Venetian plaster.
Linen hand towels are from an estate sale.
Just outside both bedrooms is this odd little room. It could be an office, but I use it as a "reading room." Walls are also upholstered in taupe linen. The leather chair is from the local consignment store too. Faux bamboo table is vintage.
There is a powder room between the kitchen and mudroom.
This little zinc topped console from Wisteria fits perfectly in here, providing storage and staging opportunities. Right now, it holds lavender from the property.
We consider the bedroom in the guest cottage our master bedroom.
I love waking up here with the views from three French doors.
The dresser, lamp, floral print, books and bookends are all flea market finds.
The bathroom has a walk-in shower and a marble topped vanity from Restoration Hardware.
The shower curtain is made out of terry cloth, and the floors are raw concrete.
The sitting room in the front of the cottage can also serve as a bedroom.
The sofa is a hide-a-bed and came with the house. A brown floral kilim rug ties all the colors together.
A series of framed prints of Tuscany and Umbria hang above the sofa bed.
My favorite nook is in the kitchen!
The room is an octagon, so there are lots of angles to deal with.
The previous owners had a breakfast table here, but I decided this nook would be better enjoyed with two club chairs instead.
The table is an antique wine table which is large enough for the two of us to share dinner.
A pair of grape tole sconces found at the Hillsborough Antique Faire hang above the chairs.
The mudroom as staged for the photo shoot, qualifies as an entry of sort.
The antique settle came from Jimtown in Sonoma County.
Grape botanical prints are flea market finds.
I also framed a vintage feed sack that I found at Round Top.
In the dining room, an open door shows the view towards the olive trees.
A pair of sconces found at an antique store in Healdsburg hang on the wall.
A vintage oil painting hangs above the door, doing double duty, as it's hiding a little door to the furnace.
The dining room table, staged for the Tuscan Style photo shoot.
Hands down though, the pine hutch is my favorite nook and cranny in the dining room.
I love how Bonnie staged it....
...but I also love it the way I had it staged before.
Our favorite nook and cranny in the living room is by the fireplace.
We found a pair of distressed leather chairs with mohair cushions at Crate and Barrel, and they soon became our favorite chair--at least in this room!
This is where we sit in the winter, sipping a glass of wine and enjoying the warmth of the fire.
Another pair of chairs, rescued from Goodwill, sit in the living room.
Originally, they were mauve leather, all ripped and torn. I had them reupholstered in Ralph Lauren leopard linen with nail heads. The drapes behind are green and cream stripe linen.
Without question though, the best part of Asti is outside.
Not only are there little nooks and crannies outside, but expansive views too.
Not to mention the plants and flowers and wildlife.
