“Designed for wine lovers who enjoy entertaining often, this wet bar was installed in the dining room where they host dinner parties, holiday meals and entertain most of the time,” says designer Nathan J. Reynolds. “Next to the kitchen, it’s a convenient place for additional counter space for mixing drinks, plating desserts, or serving coffee and after-dinner drinks.” The design includes a Kohler sink, Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer drawers, and a Sub-Zero wine refrigerator. “Glass cabinets above the wet bar distinguish it from the rest of the workspace and showcase handsome glassware and collectibles,” he adds.
Once your holiday amaryllis blooms, keep your plant in a room that’s on the cool side to help the flowers last longer, and give them bright light and evenly moist soil. When the flowers fade, cut back the stalks to just above the bulb, and let the leaves continue to grow. Water and fertilize throughout the next summer and,if you moved your amaryllis outdoors, bring it back in before frost. If your amaryllis dies back completely, it’s probably gone dormant; stop watering until new growth appears.
