Are you a wine connoisseur who frequently purchases wine by the case and requires a place to store it? Or do you aspire to become an avid wine collector? Then you should contemplate installing a wine cellar. Not having a traditional cellar? Almost any chamber in your residence can be converted into a wine cellar.
Gothic Wine Palace
Who knew acrylic wine storage with blue LED lighting could be so cool? This blue gothic wine paradise designed by Jamie Beckwith of Beckwith Interiors for a pool house in Nashville, Tennessee, features transparent acrylic arches that serve as both wine storage and a spectacular lighting element.
The temperature-controlled, 2,000-bottle wine vault is located beneath the living area of the pool house. A glass floor allows the wine cellar to be viewed from above, and a retractable black shade covers the ceiling to block out unwanted light when the cellar is not illuminated.
