Eclectic Chic

Client’s frequent trips to Napa created a urgent need for chilled wine storage- but no apparent space in the home seemed right to add a wine room- EXCEPT the grand, two-story entry hall – only it was about 3 feet too narrow to house the chilling components necessary for a viable wine storage solution.
By ‘cheating into to the adjoining master bedroom, this became possible and solved two problems- a wine room- and the bonus master bedroom entertainment cabinet with integrated doggie crate!
The custom cabinet offer consistent 55 degree storage for 1200 bottles! A seating area with settee, leather and iron chairs and an authentic hand forged table make a comfortable place to open a bottle and relax a while. Authentic European wall sconces were retro fitted to add unexpected charm and the illusion of candle light. The walls and paneling were darkened creating ambiance. The wine cabinet was enhanced with decorative painting to knock down the ‘new’ feeling and add to the time worn authentic feel of this room.
By opening up the back door way- this space now flows front to back and enjoys access to the beauty of well-planned and embellished outdoor living spaces.
This design solved space planning issues in both the wine room and the master bedroom, while adding needed wine storage in a well done, inviting and charming way. The addition of this space added greatly to the value and enjoyment of the homeowners and is a hit for their frequent wine tastings!
