Where Wine and Art Do Not Mix
Sunday, September 23, 2007
I was browsing this image at Trendir, and thought, "Gorgeous", but upon closer inspection, I saw the pegs contained bottles of wine. First of all, in California I would want to know if this was earthquake safe. Probably not. Secondly, while this may look beautiful, heat rises. Why would anyone want to keep an expensive collection of wine in a hot spot? Maybe they are empty? Use this design in a wine cellar only please. It is a dynamic, stunning L-shape kitchen, but the design fails to store wine properly. For more views of this fabulous cabinetry take a look at Ernestomeda Barrique .
The marble is lovely too, but oye, the stains, the scratches and acid etching you will have from your Merlot wine. Good thing the marble is the color of wine. Helps the stains blend in.
I do like the Kidney shaped corner storage cabinet. Love the stainless toe kick too. Check out the oven! There is a drawer above it and below the cook top. Clever!
I am a big fan of open shelves in kitchens. Love the stainless banded shelves shown here.
