Relaxation was the aim of this 3rd-floor bar and library by Austin designer Fern Santini. Opening on to a deck nestled in the treetops, it’s an edgy but chilled-out lair “to lounge and listen to new music, have a cocktail, and view the sunset, surrounded by a earth-course images collection of musicians who’ve adjusted [the field] endlessly,” shares Santini. Alongside with a robust library of audio guides, Santini is smitten with the trippy Kyle Bunting dyed cowhide ceiling. It’s visually spectacular, but it’s also “a good acoustical component that works when the McIntosh MTI100 Built-in Turntable is cranked up a bit,” she points out. A midcentury FontanaArte chandelier, antique Turkish rug, and custom made Shota Yamaguchi desk all buoy the semi-round bar crowned with towering brass shelves.
Mary Beth Wagner Interiors
When Dallas designer Mary Beth Wagner and local architect Christy Blumenfeld had been summoned again to the home they tackled collectively a number of many years back again, they have been requested for property bar ideas to create a dedicated house for entertaining shut to the kitchen area and spouse and children area. Born from an unused patio, the now-enclosed spot melds deep blue-eco-friendly walls and a showstopping bar. The latter is adorned with geometric-print tiles and “a metallic grasscloth that grew to become the backsplash so as to not consider absent from the patterned front of the bar,” suggests Wagner, who also included brass shelving to show off a stunning stash of stemware. The end result? “Elegant but a very little funky,” as Wagner places it, “which fits the homeowners’ personalities.”
Developed as a subterranean speakeasy for the Dallas Kips Bay Decorator Demonstrate House in 2021, this gallery-like bar, rounded out by a lounge and secondary kitchen, draws from the aesthetics of hedonistic Prohibition-era haunts. “The star of the space is undoubtedly the cantilevered island that options a Cambria countertop. We created it with a structural engineer and it is so secure that you could even dance on leading of it, which is excellent in our speakeasy natural environment,” says Bryan Yates, principal designer at Dallas-based mostly Yates Desygn. Even the chains dangling from the fragile mild fixture fabricated by Wired Personalized Lights to the studio’s actual specs “are reminiscent of a flapper’s swinging fringe dress,” adds Yates.
