Dedicating a beautiful space for your special interests.
When updating or redecorating a home, certain spaces usually take priority; the most-trafficked and most “practical.” This year, an interior design project of creating a wine room in a Frisco home inspired us to see the opportunity in extra, unused spaces as a place to create a place to enjoy special interests, taking it from unused to beautifully functional.
Today, we are advocating for dedicating a beautiful space for what your special interests. It will become practical if you enjoy spending time there. The key is to create a functional space for something you love to do out of an unused area in your home.
With a love for wine country and entertaining, a Wine Room is the perfect greeting off this couple’s new home entry for family and guests alike. A striking hand-painted wall brings texture and detail to the back wall featuring cascades of wine selections displayed artfully.
Mid-century chairs offer a sleek ivory leather punch, perfectly accented by warm wood sculptural bases and brassy nail-head, calling to other warm metallics throughout the space. We love how the custom ottoman cocktail table grounds the conversation with its intricate monochromatic upholstery.

A striking cabinet anchors crystal and brass accent lamps bouncing light from a collection of antiqued mirrors.
The wine room is something practical for the couple which is comfortable and not too formal so people feel an ease with spending time in this space. The glitzy finishes allow for a special space to be created while the neutral palette makes it easily flow into the adjacent spaces. Floating wine racks are minimally utilitarian looking and stack double bottles going down the walls.
This side entry-way space could have become an unused formal area, but instead is utilized often when the couple is home relaxing or entertaining guests.
