Elements of the Styled Bar Cart

I'm so excited!  I finally have my very own bar cart!  
Brass Bar Cart $130

Target delivered this beauty to my house last week and I immediately started pinning great looking bar carts to get inspired.

And in my pinning I found there were a few key elements that made these bar carts have the "wow" factor.

1. Cool Glasses- I like how these glasses feel a little vintage
2. Fun Bar-Inspired Artwork- simple and right to the point
3.  Pretty Decanter or Shaker- how else are you going to serve up those drinks?
4.  Something Organic- you'll find a lot of "hard" objects on a bar cart, adding some lemons or flowers softens it.  And I'm loving this pretty bowl.
5. Coasters- Cheers! (but don't leave rings on my furniture)
6.  Cool Funky Decorative Something- adds some personality to your cart
7. Drinks - nuff said
8.  Paper Straws- they're fun to drink from and fun to look at!

My Fall Bedroom Update

I love swapping my bedding when the seasons change.  If you remember I had the all white bedding with gold pillows for the summer but it felt a little cold for the winter.  

I was craving some color and pattern and found this gorgeous duvet from Serena & Lily.

The sunburst mirror was downstairs in my living room and I decided to swap it out with the round mirror that was over the bed before.  The sunburst mirror fills the space a little bit better and I used the A & K that were there before to style my bookcase.

C. Wonder Home Accessories

I've said it before and I'll say it again, C. Wonder is killing it when it comes to home accessories.  I am loving all of the navy for fall and those lucite letters- amazing.

Gold Bookcase for Less

While perusing the new Crate & Barrel catalog I came across this little beauty...

Hmm... kind of looks like my Ikea Vittsjo right?
It's found a new home in my living room.

E-Design Client: Family Friendly Living Room

A few weeks ago I received an e-mail from a client in Germany- stationed there on a military base with her husband- looking to work with me to re-do her living room.  Her project posed a couple of challenges- 1. her location: everything chosen needed to ship internationally and 2. her military housing meant limited painting capabilities or any permanent renovations.

She was looking to update with accessories and other smaller furniture pieces while keeping her existing sofas.  Her preference was too keep things warm and family friendly.  Working together I came up with this e-design board with all things she could purchase online and have shipped to her in Germany.

I tried to add as much color as possible into the space so she could avoid doing any painting.  The pattern on the rug and drapes makes the room feel a bit more modern while keeping it warm and kid friendly.  She needed a new TV stand and was looking to keep the TV up and out of reach of the kids.  I chose a dresser for the TV stand for the height as well as all of the storage it provides.  We also decided to do a gallery wall around the television to remind them of home and family while they are in Germany. 

Her motivation was inspiring and I can't wait to see how the finished space turns out!  I'll be sure to share the updated photos! 

Interested in working together on your new home project? E-mail me at and let's get started!
