Well hello there spring! We weren’t expecting you so soon, but you are VERY welcome.
To celebrate, and in the spirit of the spring clean, the spring in our step, and springing into action, we’re ticking a key home improvement off our list: building our Home Bar.
There is absolutely nothing superfluous or unnecessary about devoting at best a whole room, or at the very least an empty corner into a drinks den. In fact, we think it’s pretty essential.
So we’ve put together some styling ideas to get your mixers flowing and help your bar spring to life...
One | The Classic
Two | Retro Chic
Or for more of a statement, go for the Austin Powers look. Seek out some retro cushioned stools, a 50s cocktail barand some glamorous wall cabinets. Oh, and probably some glacé cherries and mini drinks umbrellas.
Three | The Farmhouse
Or go all out and bring the pub home. A few Windsor Back bar stools, the right lighting and a rustic wooden bar top will have your pals slamming tankards and singing Irish ditties before you can say two pints o’ Guinness.
Four | The Hidden Bar
Now this is classy. Your very own speakeasy. Just an average kitchen cupboard by day, cocktail delight by night. This hidden bar is designed by our clever friends at A&A Architects, but it doesn’t have to be expensive. Combine some simple carpentry with clever use of glass and mirrors and your secret recipes will be ready for sampling.
Five | The Efficient Bar
And if you’re short on space, but long on spirits, our Butler’s Tray could be your very own Jeeves. All you need is a some floor space wide enough for it and you’re ready to rumble. Serve with our impossibly chic hand blown glasses, and lace with an ice bucket.
