- The vintage piece of furniture acting as the bar doesn’t come across convincingly as a bar and left us wondering what it was actually used for—storage or a place to serve drinks?
- The whicker chair, although good looking on its own, is too small for the space.
- The wooden screen, used as a form of pattern and art on the wall, is too large and bulky. It does little to enhance the overall space aesthetically.
- Other than the vintage cabinet, there was nothing present in this layout to create a setting which is functional enough to be used and enjoyed.
- We added a leather chair that is handsome and similar in feel to the vintage cabinet creating a place where hosts and guests alike would want to enjoy a drink.
- We added a blue velvet pillow and linen throw to create a seating spot with added softness, color, texture and comfort.
- The petrified wood side table provides a handsome area rich with earth tones to rest drinks.
- We showcased the liquor bottles in the cabinet by storing them on a pewter Match tray for ease of access while simultaneously keeping the cabinet protected from possible spills.
- We added some much needed bar accessories in the form of a Match martini pitcher and glasses in an ocean blue which tie into the blues of the throw and pillow.
- A classic, but contemporary, round brass mirror fills the blank wall allowing the eye to travel up thus opening the space. A large, thin brass vase was introduced to create balance and better fill the empty wall space. The narrowness of the vase allows the entire bar top to remain roomy and retain functionality.
- The black metal crank top table adds much needed ambiance, displaying Simon Pearce hurricanes that provide delicate candlelight.
