Amp Up Your Bar Cart

The bar cart has made a serious mark on the design world over the last few years. With their resurgence came a slew of new styles and ways to style them. We parted with our brass finished cart a few years ago because it never really fit well in any room. When I spotted this rattan option from Serena & Lily I instantly fell in love. The woven texture makes it feel like less of a bar cart and more like an accent table so I thought it would look great in our small entryway. I love how it looks in the space and accessorizing it with decor rather than alcohol makes it blend with the rest of our apartment.

Some of my favorite accents to style a bar cart (other than alcohol) are monochromatic books, different sized vases, fresh flowers or a large plant. Of course for me, no set up would be complete without a great candle. This is the first thing you see when you walk into the apartment and where I inevitably set my keys down so I also love a simple bowl or catchall.
