Cornerstone-Sonoma Style™

Cornerstone-Sonoma Style™

One of my favorite places to visit, either by myself or to take guests is CornerStone Sonoma.  Located on the outskirts of the town of Sonoma on Rt. 121, it is truly an experience not to be missed.

It all revolves around a series of walk-through gardens showcasing new and innovative designs from the world’s finest landscape architects and designers. When commissioned, these artists were given the freedom to create anything from traditional gardens to modern, conceptual installations.  They are inspiring, tranquil and can just plain tickle your fancy!   

CornerStone is also a chance to indulge in the best of wine country living. There are unique retail shops and galleries, 3 fabulous wine tasting rooms, and seasonal culinary delights and locally produced specialty foods to eat in or take away.

The shops include Artefact Design and Salvage (One of my favorite for unusual and unique pieces that I incorporate into many of my interior design projects), Zipper (filled with great gifts and unique home products), a couple of terrific garden stores, and a fabulous modern art & sculpture gallery called A New Leaf.  If you like more traditional antiques, be sure to head just down the street to Sonoma Country Antiques and check out the great French and English one of a kind pieces and well made reproductions!

CornerStone also offers the opportunity to hold events there, and is a particularly fabulous location for outdoor weddings in a beautiful wine country setting.

If you haven’t been there yet be sure to visit this unique and inspiring place.  There are so many Little Bits of Beauty, either things or ideas that you can take home with you! Check it out and let me know what you think.

    Looks like a beautiful place to visit! Maybe next time we’re in California for a visit or if we ever move there which I would love to do!

    Thank you for the trip to Sonoma Country Corners! I will definitely plan to visit there hopefully this summer — I know my sisters and my daughter would love to go too. In all the years I have lived in California, I never knew about this place!

    Looks like a fun place to go. Will keep in mind for the next time I find myself up Sonoma way.

    i’ve been to the napa area a bunch of times + we always stay in sonoma because it’s my absolute favorite of the towns. i don’t think we ever made it to CornerStone, but now i have something to add to the must-see list next time we visit California! thanks for sharing.

  12. This post is such perfect timing for me. I just moved into a new place where the owner is allowing me to do whatever I want with the back yard. Now I know where to go to get great inspiration with their walk-through gardens! Thanks!

  13. Ooh! I love Sonoma, and cornerstone is at the top of my must-see list while I’m there!

    Thanks as always for your kind words on my blog Irene. Your support means the world to me!
