May I Offer You A Cold Beverage?

Hi everyone, it's that time of year again -- Holiday time, a time when we enjoy entertaining family and friends in our homes.  So I would like to "serve" to you some images showcasing the beauty of the contemporary "Bar" and the "Bar and Beverage Cart".  

Let's start with the Bar and Beverage Cart.  These carts are very functional and attractive for serving and hardly take up any space at all.  They are also useful for displaying your pretty items, look how beautifully these carts are styled!









Now, let's move on to the type of bar and beverage center that can be built into a wall or closet area, also very functional and attractive.








Now for the Grand Finale -- some real bars!!!  And may I say, I would love to have a glass of wine (or water, juice or soda) at any one of these, thank you.

Style That Table!

One of the things I love to do as an interior designer is style tables.  When a project is finished, it's finally time to accessorize the room, and I usually cannot wait to get to the point where I can place all of the pretty and colorful things I have found and collected to customize the space -- it's like the jewelry for the room!  Without these items, the look wouldn't be the same at all.  Here are some great examples of tables styled to perfection!  Enjoy!

Valentine's Day Red!

Happy Valentines Day everyone! As a designer and color consultant, it has been my experience that most people are nervous about using color in their homes -- especially RED!  And I can see why -- RED is intense! But maybe that's why RED symbolizes the color of LOVE.  So I just wanted to share with you some examples of spaces where the incorporation of RED feels just right!  Scroll down for a look at some of these fabulous spaces featuring RED!  Some are a little more intense than others...
