When I first saw this subterranean wine room “hidden” in this kitchen I thought of how convenient it is to have it there, then I thought that I’m not sure if I’d feel totally comfortable with stepping on glass every time I need to cook my meals, after all it’s just bellow the stove! Anyhow, this place made me think and feel surprised at the same time.

I really want you to take a look at this and tell me what you think. Would like to have a subterranean winery in the middle of the kitchen? Do you think this concept is Cool or Fool?



Glass Door 

The only danger of this is if someone leaves it open and you get up in the middle of night for a glass of milk.


Isn’t it a really clever idea? The stairs freaks me out a bit though.


Very interesting!

One thing is for sure, these people love their wine! What a vast collection! As I said before I think this is a really clever idea, I just wonder about the location. Did they really have to do it under the stove?

I’m wondering what you’ll think of this place: Cool or Fool?

Try to have a really fun weekend. I’m trying to work and prepare everything I can for Matthew’s arrival and I’m also trying to spend some fun time with my kids. I am totally nesting right now and I can tell you that everything is worrying me lately. I wake up during the night asking myself if I’ll be ready with everything and if I’ll be able to take care of everything after his birth. I know I’ll have to slow down a bit which I’m actually needing. The nesting thing is so funny though. If you have kids, did you also have this “nesting urge” before giving birth?

Have a very blessed weekend!

* “Cool or Fool” happens every Friday. I’ve started this section where I post “different” and controversial things that I know some of you will love and others will not. The point is to tell us what you really think, regardless of anything. It’s a space where you speak your mind and analyze what you see. Have fun with it and laugh along the way!

  1. OMG I have never ever seen anything like this! Its so creative, futuristic and a little crazy! Problem is I might find this a little too….ugh, convenient if you catch my drift. I can see it now….”wheres mom” one of my kids replies “well she was SUPPOSED to be cooking us dinner but shes in the wine room AGAIN”…..to rolled eyes. Yes, that could become ones favorite hangout!! Really crazy but definitely very cool.

  2. PS Being VERY claustrophobic on second thought I might not want to spend THAT much time down there, on the other hand if I could come up with a clever pulley system then maybe…….:)

    Oi Luciane

    Achei a ideia fantástica, de grande efeito.
    Mas aqui em casa a cozinheira é pesadinha( eu) e o marido também, não seria tranquilo ficar pisando ali… não sentiria segurança por mais que fosse blindado..rs
    Mas num outro cantinho da cozinha seria perfeito. Seria uma casa real ou dessas mostras de decoração conceitual?

    Oi, Lú!
    Não me sinto segura pisando em vidro.
    Nas Casa Cor já subi degraus em vidro, pisos inteiros em vidro com água e peixes, todas as idéias mais loucas e lindas que você possa imaginar. Não adianta, não me sinto segura.
    E concordo, imagine alguém esquecer aberta a porta, terrível.
    Tenha um ótimo final de semana

    FOOL! Cool if in another location….
    Thanks my friend.
    HAppy Friday!

  6. Marie said,

    Crazy and would make me feel ill-at-ease standing on a glass “window”. I don’t like wine THAT much, I guess.

  7. Andover said,

    Interesting idea but the location of the door isn’t working for me. A glass floor looking down to the wine cellar but with a different entrance would be better in my opinion.

  8. Timothy said,

    I agree the location of the door doesn’t work. Overall, fool – too flashy: “Look at us! We’re rich alcoholics!”

    I must be pregnant and not know it because all I do is nest!

  9. SizzleandZoom said,

    Cool! My hubby would have a place to hang out while I did the cooking.

  10. Erin with plushrugs.com said,

    Wow, that is a lot of wine! I would worry about having to clean the glass of all those footprints.

  11. Alyssa said,

    Coolest thing ever! Thanks, Luciane!

  12. Marianne {style for living} said,

    Never seen anything like this. I think it’s an interesting idea but not crazy about the location. Enjoy your weekend!

    very interesting!…could get dangerous after a few glasses of wine heading back down that staircase – as this momma is very accident prone …could be stuck down there for days! ha ha!

  14. Barbara said,

    OMG! I had seen this recently and thought “you’ve got to be kidding”. To make an investment (oops…investments make you money and this one won’t make anyone money) set in this particular spot must have been decided on when they were on the second bottle!

  15. Barbara@HausDesign said,

    I guess it’s a good use of space and practical to have it all right there, but it’s still kind of odd! They get points from me for originality though! 🙂

  16. Greet said,

    Splendid idea!! To file!!

  17. Victoria Athens said,

    The idea is fine, the placement absolutely ridiculous. Not only is the glass “floor” disconcerting, the the framework and hinges that stand proud of the floor are a trip hazard and must be exceedingly uncomfortable to stand on.
    Have a great weekend, Luciane.

    C O O L !!!!!

  19. Manderley said,

    Hummm I don’t konw if a good idea, very small. I think I’m dizzy going down the stairs hahahaha.

    xoxo and good weekend

  20. Gloria said,

    VERY cool! Although I’d probably trip over the edge of that on the floor every time I walked around.
    And yes, when I was in my last stages of pregnancy with my son, I was nesting! I LOVED looking at and rearranging all of the the little baby clothes I had ready for him! Enjoy your nesting time, Luciane.

  21. Kate said,

    Very cool. Kinda crazy, but super unique!
