Artwork at Embassy Circle Guest House

Justina Selinger’s “Red Barn” hangs in the Embassy Circle Guest House’s beautiful dining room, and has become a trademark of Embassy Circle.

One of Justina’s Red Barns on the wall at Embassy Circle Guest House, its has become a signature art piece there.

We met Justina Selinger through her husband Howard, who became one of our all-time favorite guests the minute he walked in the door. Howard was traveling with colleagues, and we had such fun together that he decided to come the following spring and bring Justina with him. We had lots in common with Howard and Justina, who are the original owners of The Inn at Occidental in Occidental, CA.

We went to dinner together (there always seems to be food in these stories), and laughed for hours about our experiences as innkeepers.

Almost as an afterthought, at breakfast the next morning we asked Justina what she was doing now that she had retired from innkeeping. “Painting”, she replied. We asked if she had a website, which she does, and we spent the next few hours admiring her paintings and making wish lists.

We were nearing the end of the renovations here atEmbassy Circle Guest House, so we brought Howard and Justina over to see the progress and all the empty walls. Howard immediately decided that we absolutely had to have “Red Barn”, a stunning new painting which, unfortunately, wasn’t pictured on the website.

No problem! Right before we opened Embassy we hopped a flight to San Francisco and spent a couple of wonderful days with Howard and Justina, eating great food, touring Russian River, Sonoma and Napa Valley wineries, and buying paintings!

It’s become a habit!
