Wine Cellar Dining Room

Host Brooke Channon visits the wine cellar dining room created by designer Joseph Hittinger.

  • Inspiration Room: $57,000 — Anchored by an Italian farmhouse table, this wine cellar dining room mixes rustic furniture and elegant dining pieces to create what Joseph Hittinger describes as "rustic elegance." A warm color palette inspired by nature, antique accessories and bench-made furniture provides a warm ambiance for the room.
  • Makeover room, before: Guest designer Robert Noble helped direct the transformation of a cold, bare space into an inviting Tuscan-inspired wine cellar. He added glaze to the room's floor and walls to give an extra glow (Benjamin Moore's Yosemite Sand was mixed with glaze and brushed on by hand, then softened with a dry brush and rag).
  • To accommodate storage for wine, Robert added riddling racks, a dark cherry ladder and an inexpensive wine rack. He hung finished tapestry fabric to copy the French tapestry found in the Inspiration Room. He also dressed the table with inexpensive stoneware and amber-colored stemware from an import store.
  • Robert made a candelier using plywood spray-painted to simulate an aged metal look. He added eyehooks to attach a chain for hanging.
  • A fruit dish evoking the still lifes of the Renaissance adorns this inexpensive wine rack.
  • Finally, Robert hung a canvas fresco reproduction on the wall and added two wall sconces to complete the look.
