I was hired to design the room layout, color scheme, lighting plan, custom artwork, custom bar and furniture for this high-end award-winning (and very popular) Olympia wine bar. This project started as a residential home and the clients wanted an intimate and inviting space in which people felt comfortable spending $100 on a bottle of wine or coming in right from work to enjoy a little happy hour before heading home.

The most spectacular view is from the large corner window area in which I designed an under-lit mosaic bar table that was made possible thanks to the help of my colleague Jennifer Kuhns.
