We house our bar cart smack dab in the middle of the living room because we don’t have another option space wise other than our master bedroom. That might come across as TOO weird to guests and not having a bar cart is well, not an option over here.
No matter where you house your bar cart, there’s a pretty simple formula to styling it out that you can go by or not. This “formula” is for those who want a pretty bar cart but when they go to style it, they end up wanting to throw the cart out the window out of frustration.
I came up with this no fail way to style a bar cart formula to avoid getting overwhelmed when styling out a bar cart. You obviously need the essential items – a bar cart, alcohol and glassware. From there I recommend adding at least one item from each “optional” row.
bar cart | glasses | coastaers | napkins | tray | box | ice bucket | drink stirrers | bar tools
And a few ways that I’ve incorporated some of the above items in my own bar cart.
I recently learned of Mintwood Home and I kid you not, found myself wanting every single item from the shop. Even better, the founder of the shop, Heloise, is a true gem. Her story is incredible and so inspiring – She was attending grad school for Education, and the Washington Post approached her about doing a story on her rental basement apartment, which she transformed into a lovely, budget friendly space. Soon after the story ran, she decided not to pursue Education and started working for a design firm in DC. Those kinds of stories are what draws me in as I love supporting small businesses owners that hustle and are so clearly passionate about what they do. Heloise is the real deal and she has incredible taste, and her online home decor shop is proof. After working at the design firm, Heloise obviously had a love for interior design but found herself being frustrated at how exclusive the industry is. She started Mintwood Home as a way to simplify the interior design process and make great design more accessible.
…….Are you hooked? Because I’m helping to spread the word about Mintwood Home, I asked Heloise if she would be willing to host a giveaway today for all of you. She graciously agreed to give away a $100 credit to the shop, and you can enter below.
