Eclectic Home Bar

Eclectic Home BarI love a good challenge, so when Chairish approached me for a home bar design I couldn’t wait to start decorating and designed¬†this eclectic home bar¬†with black and gold accents. I started with a non-traditional bar area which actually is a desk. Then I accessorized the bar with these gorgeous Chairish Danish modern bar stools. Like putting an outfit together, the same goes for any part of your home design – it should be a reflection of your own personal style. A good statement clock or mirror are a must for a focal point. I love how the black and gold accents and unique pieces really define this space and are inviting to kick back after a long day’s work. Now, if this design would just magically appear in my apartment, I’d be one super happy girl.
