If you read Wine Design often enough you will find that one of the things I love most in design is taking everyday items and finding new and beautiful uses for them. Take this idea for example. One of the most intriguing and show-stopping element to any winery are the rows upon rows of wine barrels that are housed there. There is something about the mystique of such a setting that enhances wine culture as we know it. It makes sense that we would want to take a little of this into other areas of our home or business to enhance and portray the wine culture that we love.
I love the beauty that wine barrel bathtubs bring to a space. I love the elements of wood against metal. Wood always brings a sense of warmth to a space and the use of metal has a sense of rustic and earthy charm to it as well. Below are a few pictures that showcase the use of wine barrels as bathtubs. I love how the mood can swing both contemporary or rustic depending on the style that you desire. Enjoy!
