When Chris and I first moved to the New York metro area, we shared a beautiful studio on the Hoboken waterfront. Although it really was a nice space, complete with a washer and dryer (hard to come by in this area!), we only lasted a year.
Moving into a one-bedroom apartment at that time was exciting. Not only were we getting more space for us and our pup Shadow, we could decorate more.
The first piece I purchased was our bar cart. I knew right away this was something I really wanted to incorporate into our new space. After looking at several different brands, I settled with this Crate and Barrel bar cart. I really liked that this version was not particularly fancy, yet had this old world charm where I could envision this being used in the ’50s.
Chris and I have gotten great use out of the piece. Not only is it fun to decorate, but we use it as storage for our glasses, currently housing an array of wine glasses and Champagne flutes. As for the actual liquor stored on the cart, the majority is hand selected by Chris based on what he enjoys. While Chris picks the beverages, I switch out the decorations. I love how the bright pink peony makes the space fun, feminine, and flirty amongst a variety of dark liquors. -Allie
