Stylish Bar

To create a stylish bar that would be perfect for entertaining guests impressively, we custom designed this built-in cabinet with slate blue lacquer finish and stripe mamara marble countertop.

Below are additional tips on how to get the look.

Cabinet design:

  • A mirrored back and floating glass shelves give a sense of lightness in the design.
  • Decorative pulls add a nice design accent to the function of doors.
  • Cabinet lighting (though not lit here) makes the display feel more special.

 

Styling tips:

  • Arrange stemware and wine bottles like a retail display (I cluster similar items as groups and leave some breathing space between them).
  • Pretty bowls to hold nuts and chocolates.

Entertaining in Style!

Entertain in style this weekend with a glamorous table setting at your Oscar party! A simple wood branch and moss can be embellished with feathers and flowers to create a dramatic centerpiece. Your decor will look as stunning as the looks on the red carpet!

For the dramatic centerpiece, I used a long branch covered with moss as the base and layered it with flowers, feathers and berries.  To keep it sophisticated still I kept the color scheme of the centerpiece a monochromatic pink.  This way it is fun and frivolous but not tacky.
