Stylish Homes: Alexis Swanson + Trevor Traina

Oh my giddy, giddy, giddy, giddy aunt!!!!! This one, my friends, takes the iced-in-24-carat-gold cake. This humble San Francisco abode belongs to "a dashing Internet entrepreneur" and "a dynamic beauty who works with her family's self-titled Napa winery". Note to self: Open winery. Marry "Internet Entrepreneur". PS The original article appeared in the December 2009 issue of US Vogue. Read the online "edited for vogue.com" article here.
