Our At-Home Cocktail Bar
Alas, the home bar! I carved out this niche of our kitchen and donned it our *Cocktail Corner*! I do have to laugh at this a bit as I joined a cocktail club that mails you drinks, mixers, bitters, etc. every month and I was pregnant when we joined and now my tolerance is so low I can barley finish half a drink! Still it's the perfect place to gather right in the kitchen for dinner parties.
- The 'Gather' sign is from Sundance. They are based in Sun Valley by Robert Redford and have lots of casual clothes and decor items. The sign is actually very thin laser cut metal painted red.
- The D R I N K wooden letters with metal edges are from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child. I always laugh at this as they were meant for spelling out a name for a child's room!
- For the walls I used Farrow & Ball paint in Matchstick. Their colors are a favorite of mine based on historical homes.
- The bar table is from Restoration Hardware and is metal with a wood slat top.
- I got the cool wood carved bull from a home consignment store. They are always a good place to search for quirky table top items.
- The stainless steel bar set is from Crate & Barrel. It's a classic ice bucket, shaker and platter.
- The CHEERS! dispensers are from HomeGoods. They are perfect for one no alcohol and one alcoholic drink. Just don't get your signs messed up!
- The light up star is also form HomeGoods and adds the perfect glow to the bottles at night.
- The ceramic lobster serving dish, coral piece and the top 2 boxes are from my friends company that closed. They had the coolest stuff!
- The little glass decanter is from my favorite vintage store in Boston, Neatly Nested Decor. If you are looking for vintage accessories or a restored piece of salvaged furniture, they are the place!
- The bottom box is from a salvage store in Albany, NY. I bought this with my mom and brings back special memories of our antiquing trips together.
Here are some similar pieces:
Most importantly, the cocktails are from Napa Valley Distillery. We joined a monthly membership and had all kinds of homemade cocktails and bitters each month. The vintage bottles make for a nice display on the bar top. This wooden platter was a gift and they fit perfectly on it.
I think that's about it! You can make a whole bunch of modern and salvage items tie together perfectly with the right arrangement. If you need any help, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below. Happy Cocktail Bar creating!
