Laurelhurst Residence – Wine Room

Progress on the Laurelhurst Residence Wine Room progressed quickly once the framing was completed.  Carpenters fabricated several wine racks designed to fit into the various niches and nooks that resulted from tucking the wine room into a difficult corner of the home.  The raw wood of the racks compliment the natural slate floor, and when coupled with the paint, the room has a warm comfortable character.
