At StoneWood Design we are thrilled to work on special projects because it allows us to be a part of bringing beautifully and well-appointed environments to members of our community.

During the past few years, StoneWood Design has been fortunate to work on several special design projects in Northern California. Here are two projects that we are especially proud to have had a hand in designing:

Clos du Lac

Located in the Sierra Foothills, Clos du Lac is an exclusive village that was inspired by old-world tradition and reminiscent of Southern France. Built complete with antique curbstones, a post office, an olive grove, wine-producing vineyards and custom, single-family villas, the Clos du Lac project was all about quality and craftsmanship.

StoneWood Design was responsible for designing and furnishing the interiors for three of the homes and their adjacent courtyards. The homes designed by the architect Henrik Bull of San Francisco, were detailed by StoneWood Design and each included imported French hardware, Rumford fireplaces and hand-carved keystones above the doors and windows.

Julia Morgan House

Built in the early 1920s for Charles M. Goethe, and his wife Mary, the “Julia Morgan House” is the only known Sacramento residence designed by the well-known California architect. The house located on T Street in downtown Sacramento, was carefully restored and renovated to comply with the family’s will that bequeathed the property to the California State University, Sacramento (CSUS).

Saving this home became a passion for Janice Stone Thomas, owner and principal designer at StoneWood Design because for years she had watched this architectural gem set idle. Ms. Thomas was instrumental in bringing together members of the community to work with CSUS to complete this project. Eventually, she was able to design the kitchen and butler’s pantry, as well as the upstairs landing.

Upon completion, this historical piece of residential architecture was shared with the Sacramento community, an accomplishment that StoneWood Design is very proud to have been a part of.
