Ma(i)sonry, A Life Aesthetic

Yountville, California, located in the Napa Valley is such a quaint little town. Even at the peak of the tourist season, it was still fun to hang out and visit some stores and restaurants.

The first place we discovered yesterday was Ma(i)sonry. Built in 1904 as a private residence and lovingly restored, it is now a furniture, art and wine tasting gallery.

Inside, the stone walls are just gorgeous. The objects d'art and antique furniture are all unique and beautifully arranged.

I could seriously live here! I kept imagining what it would be like to live in a stone house and how I would decorate it. I'm enamored with stone walls as it is, so this was like nirvana for me!

I was admiring this art deco glass coffee table. Notice the two paintings on the wall.

I would gladly take home these vintage leather suitcases, but they were a little too expensive.
Can't you just imagine them stacked next to a bed or sofa?

There is a lovely courtyard for wine tasting, private parties or just for relaxing.

I love this little outdoor vignette of rusty, crusty objects d'art - all for sale.

The fire pit was made from left over stone, original to the house when they restored it.

A fun garden sculpture of pears!

If you have a chance to visit Yountville in Napa Valley, do stop in at Ma(i)sonry for a glass of wine and some eye candy. In the meantime, visit their website here for more history and information about Ma(i)sonry.

As a side note, One Kings Lane is featuring Ma(i)sonry today. The owner and founder, Michael Polenske is offering some items for sale. Hey, those suitcases are marked down to $7499 for the three! Hmmm, still too much for my budget!
Check it out here.

As you well know by now, stone walls are my favorite! So I'm joining Laurie for Favorite Things Saturday at Bargain Hunting With Laurie. To view another post I wrote on stone walls, click here.
