Rustic Wine Cellar in Long Grove

Here's a great article on a recent wine cellar that the Baroque team designed & built:

The room was approximately 16 x 19 and had very a large ceiling height. This simply means that the possibilities are endless. In this case we decided to go with a massive vaulted ceiling. The result was stunning, capturing an 18th century wine cave ambiance. This is our client's favorite room in the entire estate.

 Most wine cellars offer great racking systems tiled floors and marble countertops. In this case we chose to bring back some of the more traditional building materials such as reclaimed barn lumber plaster and stone. Our first step was to install the massive vaulted ceiling. After the walls were framed in the ceiling was in place lighting elements of power were added. Each location of stone was predetermined by the client. Color and style are also choices that were determined. Once the concrete was sculpted on the wall then it was stained and painted for the finish and final effect. We have to faux finish rocks before we put the plaster down  because after the plaster has been applied the processes are a great deal harder.

 This look has been attempted by many finishers over the decades; it has achieved marginal success. The method that we have perfected interacts with the plaster to create seamless and unprecedented realism.



 According to our client, this room has become the most popular room in the home and a real delight for guests.
