Light Blue Media Lounge Bar With White Countertops
Within the garage-turned-media-room, "HGTV Star" contestant Boris Eckey added a horseshoe bar with Silestone countertops, a wine wall and dual refrigerators to create the ultimate indoor/outdoor party space.
The outbuilding of this historic Los Feliz home is multifunctional. The ground floor of the building plays host to the garage, which contains the family's collection of cars, while the second floor is home to the family's library, which is complete with reading nooks, a bathroom, a conference table and storage areas.
Custom mahogany sliding barn doors supported by heavy iron tracks and pulleys provide entry into this luxury garage. Above, detailed woodwork and windows with multiple muntins create an aged feeling. Below, brick flooring looks charming and historic but features radiant heating for an updated touch.
Red cedar wood shingles were not only chosen for the roofing, but required by the community for a consistent neighborhood appearance. A cupola with a weathervane sits atop the garage as a tall spectacle.
Professional organizer Darla DeMorrow believes in keeping garage storage accessible and simple. She recommends hanging a clock so you don’t lose track of time. A paper-towel holder pointing upward holds large rolls of packing tape, a large pop-up bag contains wrapping paper and a gift bag holds smaller gift bags. A wheel guide on the floor, makes for perfect parking to avoid smashing into storage.
