Dramatic Wine Cellar in New Jersey
>Welcome back to our blog about building custom wine cellars.
Our latest project in New Jersey started with a blank canvas – a 17′ x 17′ room which was finished, but not for one of our custom wine cellars.
Check out a video walk-through of this dramatic wine cellar, then read more about the project.
The homeowner had just built the home and was entirely finished except for the wine cellar. He told us that he was tired of making decisions and wanted us to do everything “soup to nuts” including all of the design work.
We began by asking some questions as to the style the homeowner envisioned…we then began to walk through the house to visualize their tastes…we also walked the outside of the home as well. Once we had the feel for their tastes we began to sketch a design – we included pictures, 3D CAD drawings, paint finishes, tile, door swatches, lighting, just about everything the owners would need to see and feel as if they were sitting in the room.
They loved it, and we went right to work!
Once the room was gutted we began to build the wine cellar. The wine cellar had several features: Granite peninsula, smoke eater for cigars, 2 murals with stone effect paint finish, custom humidor, 2 mahogany wrought iron doors and window, Jerusalem gold stone tile with 2 custom mosaics, and of course 3 stone arches 8′ tall with 6 scones.
The cellar has a very dramatic feel…the stone tile accents the wine barrel and paint finish…while the “red dragon” granite makes a very bold statement yet picks up all of the colors of the stone arches as well as the murals.
The room was completed with 2 alligator chairs which beg you to light a fine cigar and open a 94 Sassicaia…Bellissimo!!
Please stay tuned for the opening of La Bionda (the blond girl) which is under renovations in Manville NJ…it will open in August with a night club in back, fine Italian food, brick oven pizza, and of course a Joseph & Curtis custom wine cellar.
