Dream Home - Wine Room

The Mr. and I will occasionally talk about what we'd want in our hypothetical dream home.

He wants a lazy river around the house. (seriously, isn't he hilarious?)

And one of the main things I want (besides an insane walk-in closet) is a Wine Room. A temperature controlled room that is a wine cellar.

Something like this...

Or it could be more modern and integrated into another room like this...

I also like the idea of true wine cellar, like this amazing, modern, spiral wine cellar...

The possibilites are really endless. *Sigh*


What do you want in your dream home?

A very organized craft room. With enough room to fit everything in it's own place. Or a comfy reading room with a bay window. My dream is to have a house with a bay window.

I want an outdoor kitchen! Your wine cellar pictures are amazing ... we had one growing up but it was a little bit more medieval dungeon like and I was (am) terrified of it! Also, there is a house a few blocks from my parents that actually has a lazy river/moat flowing around it ... so maybe yall could move to Tulsa and just move into that house! haha!

I love this but I'm with the above blogger. An outdoor kitchen would be awesome!

I love the first wine room. Although at this point. I'd take any place with an actual yard to enjoy!!

We live in a small-ish apartment, so the list of what I want in a dream house is pretty long! :) I would love to have a huge kitchen (with room to store wine!) and a deck/backyard. Oh- a huge master bath would be awesome too.

A lazy river around the house is brilliant! (Assuming, of course, you had a enough sun to make the lazy float super enjoyable.) Of course, that might be hard to implement around my row house, so I would settle for an awesome craft room and a bigger, a laundry room that's not in the basement, and a bigger, more functional kitchen. Small requests.

I want a wine room, too!!! LOVE those shots!!!

Rachel said...

I am dying for a seriously big walk-in closet, too! And those pictures are incredible. Seriously, to have a house like that... ah, maybe someday

Sonya said...

I would love a huge scrapbook room/office with lots of shelves and drawers and desk space! Can't say I wouldn't mind a large closet either!

I think the lazy river sounds really nice! One of my friend's husband's want a room that is wall-to-wall bed and he wants to just roll out of the bed to get out the door!

I love the wine cellar idea! But my idea house would have a huge library filled with bookshelves, and one of those wooden ladders on a track to reach the top shelves. (sigh) Someday!

Eileen said...

love the wine cellar idea. my dream house would have a big wooded lawn, and a garage, and open floor plan, lots of windows/skylights, and lots of closets, and a big library. My husband dreams of a house with secret passageways, ha... gotta love the way their minds work!

Amanda said...

Those wine cellars are amazing! I love the spiral staircase one!

By the way, I've been following you on twitter but not your blog...weird...but now I'm a follower here too!

Shorty said...

I would love to have a funky/artsy wine cellar as well!

I'm your newest follower but have been lurking for while and have just started a blog of my own.
I'm also in LBC and used to live right next door at the historic Blackstone apts. We are still in LB but are no longer in downtown and I miss it dearly!!

California Wife said...

Oh, I love the idea of a wine room! The first one is my favorite, so beautiful!

Oh my gosh, that trapdoor wine cellar with the glass door is crazy!!! Can you imagine walking up to that in the middle of the night, when you are all tired and out of it to get a drink of water? Craziness!!! :-) My dream home would definitely have a huge library, like the one in Disney's Beauty in the Beast- big fireplace, comfy chairs, and ladders leading to books up to the ceiling!

Shoshanah said...

Those rooms are crazy! Especially the last one with the spiral staircase. Can you even imagine having that in your house?

As for my dream, I want a library, preferably one that looks like the one from Beauty and the Beast!

Perfectly Imperfect said...

I want Carrie's closet from SATC the Movie. Oh and a library with a rolling ladder. Sigh.. I can dream right.

I'm going with your hubs.. that lazy river sounds pretty awesome!
