European Tastes are Invading the U.S. and the Result is Luxurious

From 19th century Victorian architecture, to colonial inspired homes, to modern winery designs, this part of California boasts an impressive essence. And now, more than ever, architects are bringing European styles to the U.S. and the response is spectacular. This is more and more visible in homes for sale in St. Helena CA, Napa, and surrounding regions.

According to Italian architect and interior designer Piero Lissoni, when he designed for Americans 15 years ago, they just weren’t interested in European style. But now, European architects are all over the U.S. People are craving this look more and more. Blame it on globalization. But the luxury real estate market is loving it. Check out these homes for sale in St. Helena CA and note the European influences.

Mr. Lissoni points out the positive of adding these European styles to American cities. He explains how New York used to be a curtain of wall glass towers. Now, European style is adding elegance and sophistication to a once stark city.

When asked about the term luxury, he explains that real luxury is about the culture and interactions with others. A luxury home is when the investors and developers are passionate about its creation. Any real estate agent can categorize an expensive home as luxury. But it’s not just about the price tag. Walking through a true luxury property, one can feel the passion that went into building it.
