Un­com­mon Wine Rooms

Best Home (Canada) - - Contents -

An en­tre­pre­neur of con­sid­er­able skill and cre­ative abil­ity, Pi­eter Spin­der owner of Un­com­mon Wine Rooms, knows the dif­fer­ence be­tween the con­ven­tional and the cov­eted. “I en­joy try­ing to de­ci­pher the client’s vi­sion to de­sign one-off wine rooms that af­fords each client some­thing unique,” cites Spin­der.

Pro­vid­ing dra­matic dé­cors of inim­itable ap­peal, he ven­tures to cre­ate con­tem­po­rary, rus­tic, tra­di­tional, and old-world de­signs, em­bel­lish­ing themes to cap­ture scale and func­tion that ad­vance life­style pref­er­ences. “Cur­rently I have been cre­at­ing a blend of old-world with mod­ern in­flu­ences, those styles be­ing very pop­u­lar on their own, and when con­verged pro­vide a happy medium,” ad­mits Spin­der.

Typ­i­cally ap­proached by clients with pho­tos and ideas of what they may want, Spin­der vis­its the home to view the ex­ist­ing dé­cor and as­sist with de­ci­sions on style and com­ple­men­tary fin­ish op­tions. “I can work with any bud­get. Some­times it can be just wall racks or a 2,000-bot­tle wine cel­lar. Some clients are wine col­lec­tors, while oth­ers just want an ar­chi­tec­tural show­piece in their home,” adds Spin­der.

Ad­mit­ting op­tions to be end­less as long as one is cre­ative with ma­te­ri­als, Spin­der’s col­lab­o­ra­tive ap­proach with the home­owner, de­signer, or ar­chi­tect re­sults in a func­tion and a ca­pac­ity that suits the client’s style and their needs. “Col­lec­tors typ­i­cally re­quire cli­mate con­trol (cool­ing units and hu­mid­i­fi­ca­tion) that can re­side out­side the wine room if re­quired, which in­creases op­tions for ren­o­va­tions,” claims Spin­der. “Our crafts­men are top­notch, en­sur­ing the best qual­ity from start to fin­ish. It is im­por­tant to me that ev­ery client has a wine room that can be as vis­ually invit­ing as any other room in the home.”
