Buckhead Client's Ski Retreat - New Construction
Level One: Our goal was to create harmony of colors and finishes inside and outside the home. The home is contemporary; yet particular finishes and fixtures hint at tradition, especially in the wine cave.
The earthy flagstone floor flows into the room from the entry foyer. Walls clad in mountain ash stone add warmth. So does the barrel ceiling in quarter sawn and rift American white oak with natural stain. Its yellow-brown tones bring out the variances of ochers and browns in the stone.
To maintain a contemporary feeling, tongue & grove ceiling planks are narrow width and closely set. The minimal wine rack has a diamond pattern that repeats the floor pattern. The wine barrel table and stools are made from recycled oak wine barrels. Their circular shapes repeat the room’s ceiling. Metal hardware on barrel table and stools echo the lighting above, and both fuse industrial and traditional styling, much like the overall room design does.
