If you have a bit more room to play with, the wet bar offers the opportunity to incorporate extra refrigeration, a second sink and even a recycling center. Designer Nathan J. Reynolds fit all this and more into this project. “This wet bar was designed with entertaining in mind,” he says. “The top refrigerator drawer is perfect for storing cold water, soda, beer — even juice boxes for the kids. The bottom freezer drawer makes ice and is great for chilling glasses and liquor. Fill the sink up with ice and display the beverages offered to guests for the evening. The far right drawer is handy for bottle openers, napkins and bar utensils for the bartender. Below the drawer is a recycling center pull-out with trash and recycling for the empty bottles. The countertop space is generous for displaying beverages and making your favorite cocktail.”
To brighten the space, designers removed the interior windows and doors that surrounded the living room. White furnishings, interesting lamps and a sofa table create a light, relaxing space with great views of the bay.
Originally a guest house, this space was converted into an indoor-outdoor cabana with Carrara marble and French White Oak accents, a custom wet bar complete with a sink, refrigerator, ice machine, storage, and 20-foot-long glass doors that pocket. Green wallpaper with a Palm plant design is a showstopper.
Making good use of the available space in this large bedroom, a wall size headboard with bedside reading sconces envelopes the bed and nightstands. A rich chocolate brown with a stripe pattern, the headboard coordinates with the lighter beige bench. White linens match the white walls and an armless chair.
