“The wines that one best remembers are not necessarily the finest that one has ever tasted, and the highest quality may fail to delight so much as some far more humble beverage drunk in more favorable surroundings.”
H. Warner Allen
If you like wine, you’ll like this! A wine room that is not only bigger than a lot of people’s bedrooms, but grander than most people’s kitchens. And the best part is – it’s pretty much full! From the dark cabinetry to the inviting center table, this wine room is meant to be used. That’s what I like about it. The personal touches and the decor make this room the best one to entertain in. (I supposed the wine helps too.) The biggest challenge when designing this space was what to do with it all? Usually when designing a wine room, you are very limited with space and corners can become an issue. Not here. Firstly, there is no shortage of space in this room and all of it has been used to it’s full potential. There is even a dishwasher next to the bar sink to take care of all the tasting glasses. Secondly, the jog in the wall means that we didn’t have to deal with any of those annoying corners, giving the room nice symmetry and the best possible use of wall and floor space. Truly an entertainer’s dream come true, not to mention any wine enthusiast – this room is more than just somewhere to store your wine.
Subtle appliques and gentle curves against the brick walls make the room feel elegant and rustic all at the same time.
Fluted posts and wire mesh doors are just some of the details that add to the overall feel of the room.
The gorgeous yet understated handles and the leaded glass mullions, are just some of the small details that make all the difference.
Nothing has been over looked here. Check out the in-lay wood floor that is separated by the travertine tile.
