Steal This Look: H2 Hotel Bedroom Suite in Healdsburg

Issue 40 · Napa Valley Rustic · October 4, 2011

Lately, we've been fielding requests for ideas on stylish sustainability (a concept that doesn't have to be an oxymoron). So when we heard that the David Baker-designed H2 Hotel in Northern Sonoma recently achieved gold LEED certification, we took a closer look. Marie Fisher (a member of the Remodelista Architecture/Designer Directory) and Jen Gadiel designed the simple bedroom suites, which feature furnishings from some our favorite SF sources—coffee tables from OHIO and rugs from Peace Industries, for example. Bonus points: Bathroom amenities come in refillable containers, and farmers’ market bags are on offer in the lobby. Recreate the sustainable look with the following elements.

Above: The bedrooms rely on natural lighting, with sliding shutters to filter the sun. The wool-felt carpets are from San Francisco's Peace Industry; the floors are woven-strand bamboo. The Nomade-Express Sofa by Ligne-Roset is a sleek alternative to traditional sofabeds.

Honeycomb Cotton Blankets

Above: The beds are custom made of salvaged American elm; all the bedlinens are organic cotton, sourced from Coyuchi in Point Reyes, including the Honeycomb Cotton Blankets.

Above: Marie Fisher designed the channel-quilted headboards, which are mounted to the wall. She used Designtex's Radiate, an indoor/outdoor fabric, with a welting of cotton canvas. The headboards are reversible, with bright orange fabric on the other side.

Blockys Side Tables

Natural Bench Coffee Table

Above: Also from Ohio Design, the Natural Bench Coffee Table is made with radiata pine, a fast-growing softwood.

Kilim Hassock
