GMS in the Werks: The Burghardt’s

This week, we’re highlighting a stellar design we created and just completed. Recently, we designed Mark and Kami Burghardt of Gretna’s wine room project! For the space, we used Zebrino Light Onyx as a backsplash, which the stone is translucent by nature. Now, imagine installing backlit LED lights to illuminate the entire room while showcasing the wine bottles. The mastermind behind this project is interior designer Beth Settles with Interiors by Joan.  Every design detail is crafted intentionally like the “cradles” used to hold the wine bottles on display. Take a look at the finished product below!
