I am currently obsessing over the notion of having a bar cart in my living room,

Bar carts have been around since before prohibition and have a timeless feel to them, and I have been inspired to make a BAR CART my new project...

  This bar cart initiated the idea, I love how the mirrored shelves look under the blue glasses and pink flowers, a great use of bold colors!

This one is more simple and less decorative but still serves its purpose, that is to mobilize spirits! 

From Restoration Hardware via

This one is slightly more modern but still functional and chic, I must say, however, I prefer gold more then silver

LOVE the books, even bar carts need stacks of literature

My dream bar cart would look just like this. 

I love the brassy metal gold and the simplicity of two symmetrical shelves. The color/finish makes the cart vintage looking, but the shape is still modern. I also think the wheels are nice to have but small enough not to overpower the look

My dream bar cart would have at least one flower vase, if not two

Vintage cocktails by Assouline

This book is currently on my coffee table, but I would replace it with a book about cappuccinos, and put Vintage Cocktails on my bar cart!

Of course I would have all the ingredients to make my vodka-soda water-limes,

And a surplus of wine! Pinot grigio would ALWAYS be in stock, but also an assortment for guests who may like merlot or chardonnay

These are beautiful! So bright and alluring, a definite favorite of mine

Stemless wine glasses are not my favorite for wine but I love them for mixed drinks and apparently also as flower vases

Image via

And of course I would have as many bottles of Moet as possible!

I absolutely adore champagne glasses with gold rims, it reminds me of summer weddings, so elegant!

Can't wait to decorate my own bar cart! 

Drink Chicly,
