Specialty Room: Second Place

A chic bar conceived by c|s Design Studio LLC elevates a dining room

Designer Christina Simon imparted interest and functionality to a McLean dining room with a chic built-in beverage bar boasting a handy countertop and storage for bottles and glassware. “Custom inset cabinetry with notched pulls is recessed into the wall to keep the dining room feeling open,” explains Simon, who stained the floating bar dark gray and fronted the sliding upper doors with pewter mesh for display. Sconces from Visual Comfort flank the bar, which is enhanced by an antiqued-glass backsplash and a white quartz countertop.
