Kitchen Spotlight: Yoko and Matthew's White Lounge Bar

Kitchen Spotlight: Yoko and Matthew's White Lounge Bar

Wine storage is something we've been thinking about lately, as we have a few bottles we'd like to store long-term. Well, Matthew and Yoko have a simply lovely spot for theirs, in their laboriously renovated home in San Francisco. Take a peek at their kitchen and their hard-won extra space: a little white lounge and bar.

This home was initially uninhabitable. It was home to various wildlife, and in a terrible state of disrepair. Matthew and Yoko slowly and lovingly renovated it to a point where it worked so well for them and their three-year-old. Now it really suits their style: "Scandinavian style meets California sun. Simple, natural, functional and cozy yet luxurious."

The bar was what really impressed us. Yoko created the wine rack herself. They say that "Yoko borrowed the contractor's power tools - power saw and nail gun and built custom size wine rack for the bar."

Take a look at the full tour for more details and all the paint colors used in these rooms, as well as a photo of the kitchen before renovation!
