This trade-only seminar, presented by author Mary Whitesides, will be held from 10-11:30 a.m. on Friday, August 4 at the San Francisco Mart. In this seminar, Mary will present an array of captivating architectural and design styles of numerous estates and cottages in the Napa and Sonoma valleys. Mary will review what is unique about the architecture and interiors, and highlight interpretations that reflect the spirit of the home owner. She will discuss the common themes that tie several predominant styles together, as well as the design edicts that are lessons to the rest of the country.
