Happy new week my dears! Last week was quiet around here while Mark and I took the kids to sunny Florida.


We visited my scrumptious little nephew in Miami and then my parents-in-law on the opposite coast, and had some wonderful forced family fun. It’s been a few years since we caught the tradewinds in our sails and our time away was so good for our little family! Sitting in front of this with a book in my lap wasn’t too awful either…….



Today I’m back with Shine Home Love, the weekly series dedicated to sharing a favorite corner of home of bloggers and Instagrammers extraordinaire! I am thrilled to share a space in the home of a designer who is as genuine and kind as she is talented….

my sweet friend Cindy of Rough Luxe Lifestyle!
I’ve been dreaming of Cindy’s vacation property in Paso Robles, California ever since Mary Ann at Classic Casual Home shared a peek of it a while back. What a dream it would be to stay there!
Here is a snippet of one of Cindy’s favorite corners of her own home.

 Lisa is one of the sweetest bloggers I know and I thought it would be fun to share a space for Shine Home Love. After I agreed I thought maybe I had lost my mind. My house is a bit torn up right now (well who am I kidding it almost always is). It seems we always have a project either looming or going! My friend Pat suggested I use our outdoor fireplace areabut I wasn’t sure Lisa wanted outdoor shots so I scratched that one. My friend Roxanne suggested the wineroom. Thanks Roxanne!
Welcome to our wineroom. As with any Hattersley project there is always a story within the story…

The room was originally my husband’s workshop (visualize concrete floors & unfinished sheetrock walls) before we built our detached garage. It has the most beautiful windows in our entire home. Note to architect, why did you put them in the shop? This room has had many incarnations. When my son and daughter were still home it was their workout room.
Fast forward several years. My son was about to be married at our home and my husband had this grand idea about escavating under the pool to build a wine cellar. It sounded way too complicated and way too many $$$ to me. I suggested we turn the workout room into a small cellar and tasting room. He eventually warmed to the idea.
Here is a picture of the room just completed packed with people from the rehearsal dinner.

When we began the project we tore out the carpet and scored and stained the dirty concrete floors (from the old shop). To stain a concrete floor it doesn’t need to be perfect. Sometimes the more stained and distressed the better!

My husband added some old beams to give the space more character. My husband has used old barn beams in his custom homes for over 25 years. We made the mirror from old ceiling tiles and added this console from Brazil

 He had one of his guys build the cabinet behind the bar. We painted and distressed the finish and added handmade hardware from Brazil. The top is made from an old piece of barn flooring. We purchased the actual bar counter and stools online. If we were going to stay in this house long term I would replace them with something more fitting for the space.

The door to the actual cellar was a reject from a job. Steve had the top panel removed, old glass installed, and the grate was made by local artisan Bob Signorello.

This room has many memories as we have enjoyed many celebrations here. Here is a shot from Jenna’s wedding reception a few years later.
 We Hattersley’s do like to have a glass of wine or too and often have appetizers in the wine room before dinner. Sometimes for Steve and I dinner is just that.

Thanks again Lisa for asking me to join your series. I am honored to be a part of it.

Cindy thank you for sharing this amazing space! I can see why you love it – it is such a unique and special room and it sounds like many fun times are spent in here! I am adding “wine room” to my dream home bucket list immediately!

What a wonderful feature Lisa! I absolutely adore Cindy and could not be happier to see her wonderful taste featured on the pages of your blog! And I had never seen her wine room before - wow! Right now I'd be happy with a wine fridge - a whole room seems amazing!
