Italian Renaissance appeal with a comfortable and cozy dining experience. Cantera stone walls, often used in Spanish and Southwestern designs, immediately set this room apart from the home's plastered walls and intricate murals. The brick barrel-vaulted ceiling subtly mimics the kitchen's ceiling detail, while providing a delicate contrast from the stone walls.
The circular wine room below the rear turret of this Tudor-style home is filled with custom built-in wine racks and stone shelves. Natural stone is used on most of the walls in the space, and reclaimed brick covers all of the floors. The entire space is "reclaimed" since it replaces what was once a garage and basement. Very little heat (or cooling) is used to make these subterranean spaces function properly.
