Hilltop Estate Project: Wine Room

The final part of our five-week Hilltop Estate series is here. Today, the grand finale, the home’s wine room.

“This is probably the most unique space in the home,” Shea leads. It was the first of the rooms that the clients started designing, knowing they wanted a wine room where they could entertain. Herringbone hardwoods floors feature a dark, stained, double-striped detail which incases the perimeter of the room. “It elevates the entire spaces,” says Shea. Midnight by Benjamin Moore adorns the walls with a coffered, stained wood ceiling above. “We wanted it to feel dark and moody like an old lounge,” Shea explains. Stunning design details complete the space, like black steel doors, a black marble fireplace, tonal, inset drapes, a rolling wood ladder, antiqued mirror, a vintage area rug, leather club chairs, and an emerald green tufted velvet sofa. “I love that it’s so rich in texture,” says Shea, “the collected feel in here is one-of-a-kind. You walk in and it immediately feels different than any other space in the home. 

The wine room storage itself is oak from top to bottom in a custom stain, housing the client’s extensive bottle collection. “Everything is chilled to the perfect temperature,” Shea notes. On the floor, a tumbled limestone, and on top, a plaster-coated barrel-vaulted ceiling, also in Midnight by Benjamin Moore, tying it into the rest of the space.

To create a moodier space, do a tone-on-tone drape, matching them with the wall color. The absence of contrast creates a cozy and sophisticated vibe.
