styling {beautiful bars}

Yes, I know it is a Monday morning but I couldn't wait for cocktail hour to share these beautiful and well styled bars. The use of a trunk placed on frame with legs is a brilliant way to create a masculine and unique home for libations.

In stark contrast I love this classic bar cart framed with two boldly chairs and a cluttered message board.

Cheers and happy Monday!

Using a trunk for a bar is a great idea! I just picked up a free barcart on Craigslist and am in the process of transforming it. Thanks for the inspiration!

I want that first bar in my flat badly now. It really would look perfect in my lounge darn it.

I love that first bar - especially the old chest and the flowers in the julep cup.

Love the chairs and bar cart in the second image, but the cluttered board doesn't feel right to me.

Everything about the top set up is DIVINE!

I am a sucker for an antique trunk. This one on a stand is perfection especially with the clean, modern mirror and the ever-chic ghost chairs.

Home bars are my favorite thing in people's houses. I think the shiny bottles and the entire setup looks like a piece of art. Love the top one with the trunk.
