Are we the only ones totally in love with Bar Carts at the moment? Especially Brass Bars! There’s just something about the timeless elegance they bring to the table.

A snazzy Bar Cart to top off the look in your lounge is a must have. Whether you’re into collecting the finest of Whiskies or simply a Champagne on occasion kind of person; there’s a sense of 1950’s glam a Bar Cart introduces which every space desires.

Now that we’re approaching the festive season it’s not only time to jazz up your guest rooms, it’s time to enhance every corner of your space from the kitchen to… Well… The Bar Cart.

This season is all about the stand-out pieces.

Referring back to our ‘The magic of movement’ post – you really do not have to refurbish your whole entire space. You can simply elevate the stories in your space by making small alterations.

Ok, so we’re going a little off topic now. Spice up that Bar Cart if you’ve already got one. If you don’t; Raise the Bar and get your purchase on!

Have a look at West Elms Carts, they have a fantastic selection and believe it or not, IKEA also have pretty cool Bar Carts…Yep, we said it IKEA!



Upgrading ikea

interior design, Uncategorized

The Swedish furniture giant Ikea is a haven for flat pack and relatively cheap furnishings for your entire home, but can leave your space looking very samey if left as its bought. Make your Ikea finds as brilliant as their meatballs and mash with simple changes to make flat pack look chic and stylish. Adding a lick of paint can change the piece instantly, whether it’s just a small portion of the piece or the whole thing it is sure to look more alive. I love the way of painting half of the steps, it makes the item look unique and up market. Try the old classic of changing the knobs, these leather pulls used below look even more Scandinavian and special. Less is often more with upgrading as you don’t want your furnishings to be too garish or unrecognizable. So we’ve just given you a great excuse to grab some tasty meatballs and a storage solution or two, your welcome!
