The Carmel Valley Ranch recently received an expansion courtesy of San Francisco–based interior designer Nicole Hollis. In the 12 new suites, Hollis riffed on California ranch–style interiors, translating the comfortable, cozy, and rustic elements for which the style is known. "The ranch theme touches on the locale and history of the original ranch in Carmel Valley," Hollis says. "Our approach in this regard was materials based. We incorporated elements from the property, like salvaged wood and rope. These are simple details and honest materials."
