Wine room ideas

So we are getting ready to finish another room, the front room AKA the "Wine Room".  The husband wants to get this done sooner rather than later because he wants a space to hold meetings that is more professional.  So I've been coming up with ideas and color schemes.  I want to stick with neutrals on the furniture pieces but I am dying to have some bold navy in the house.  I love that navy/grey/taupe look, So i'm thinking navy velvet curtains, plush mink colored chairs, a navy rug and some rich rustic wood accents.  We will also put in a small wine fridge but hide it in a credenza.  As for the feature wall, I'm still stuck on doing it up in reclaimed wood but don't want it to be permanent.  I found a product called Stikwood that is stick on and very thin so I can do it myself and it's removable if we should ever move or change our minds but it's EXPENSIVE!  It would be at least $1,200.00 up to $1,700.00 just for that little wall!  We'll see where I'm at with the budget after all of the pieces for the room are purchased, maybe I will do a wallpaper on that wall to save costs.

Love this "window" mirror from Ballard Designs for above the credenza
So I have a budget of $5,000.00 for this room, which sounds like a lot, but furniture is freaking EXPENSIVE!  And good stuff is more, this isn't the college dorms people!  I have issues with scale too with the affordable furniture, I feel like sometimes its made for people who are 4ft tall.  It just can look dwarfed in the space.  Any who...  Here are my ideas below along with links!

These velvet drapes are from West Elm and are moderately priced at $69 each panel and since I will only need 3 it won't be too expensive http://www.westelm.com/products/velvet-pole-pocket-curtain-regal-blue-t865/?pkey=ccurtains-drapes%7Csolid-curtains%7C4294963733&group=1&sku=2107415&cm_src=curtains-drapes||FN-Color-_-FN-Blue-_--_-

I love this chandelier!!! I found this on joss and main https://www.jossandmain.com/On-the-Bright-Side-Odette-Chandelier~SOY7426~E17219.html?keyword=chandelier

another joss and main find, I wanted to replace the light when you walk in the house, slowly all of the ceiling fixtures will become a rich bronze

Joss and Main again!  Not set on this specific one but something like it https://www.jossandmain.com/Handsomely-Appointed-Tia-Sideboard~CTCI3785~E17508.html?keyword=sideboard

This is a chair 2 can surl up and relax in, http://www.homedecorators.com/p/fulham-chair/00/990/ the price isn't too bad but they charge $60 each for shipping... :(  Maybe I'll wait until they do a free shipping deal again.

This rug is from PB and comes in an 8' square size which would be perfect for the 4 chair set up I have in mind!  The price is reasonable too http://www.potterybarn.com/products/desa-bordered-wool-rug-indigo/?pkey=call-rugs&
This is a nice dual zone (red/white) cooler and it's just under $200 and is small enough to fit into a cabinet and be tucked away



  1. your reclaimed wood wall DOES NOT have to cost that much!!! Have you seen my wall. check out my post on my RECLAIMED WOOD WALL. Found it on craigslist, you have to be patient and look all the time. Its only nailed up, can easily come down, i think it cost us about $200 give or take to do that wall, and its AUTHENTIC !!! No prefab stuff. We found ours in 84 PA, its farm country out here ya know. LOL.

    All we did was stagger it, cut it to size and nail it up, honestly one of the most easiest and rewarding project ever and not all that permanent either....

    check out my link.


    1. THANK YOU DW!!! I use to live by 84 and my brother lived there for several years, we use to WALK to the spring house down 136 when we were kids to get chocolate milk! It was a walk though, we lived in a neighborhood on 136 close to Davis School Rd. Can you send me the info on where you go it? Those boards look amazing! And I think I can do it myself, the only part I'm concerned about is the trim, would I have to take off the bottom piece of trim or would it look OK just to start above it you think? I really should just hire you and your husband to do it for me :) 10 bucks and hour plus some beers?? lol!
