Scott Corridan
Owner, Principal Designer

Scott resides with his husband Russ, their newborn son Ciaran, and their three golden retrievers – Duke, Clarice and Buck, in both the Napa Valley area (St. Helena, California) and at Lake Tahoe (Incline Village, Nevada).

Marjan Yavari
Director of Sales and Marketing
Marjan Yavari hails from Southern California where she worked for Scott for several years while attending the Interior Design program at UCLA. The combination of a business degree with a focus in Accounting and Finance from CSU, Northridge and over ten years of experience in Interior Design gives her an edge over the business side of a very creative field. Forever charmed by the allures of a wine country lifestyle, artisanal cuisine, luxury travel and spas, the move to Saint Helena, to once again work for Scott, was a natural fit. In her free time, you will find Marjan – camera in hand -exploring the community on her bike, shopping at local farms or, fully immersed in a biography in one of the artisanal coffee shops around the wine country. Don’t hesitate to stop and say hello. Nothing would please her more!
