A Fine Wine Cellarcomments (0) April 6th, 2009 in Project Gallery
The conversion of the laundry room into this fabulous wine cellar was substantial. The owners wished to have a Napa-look that created a visual connection between the wine cellar and the dining room. This fresh, contemporary style was achieved by using rich materials of varied textures. The silky, bright finish of the Venetian plaster against the rich cabernet granite was emphasized by the rustic natural cut of the African slate wainscot and flooring. The wood used for the door and cabinet was recycled antique oak reminiscent of French wine barrels; the cabinet was crafted into a design that matches the custom iron grillework on the bottom half of the door. When you walk into this climate-controlled room, your tactile senses come alive and beg to touch the many facets of this incredible transformation.
