How to Style your Bar Cart

As avid Interior Design pinners, we couldn’t help but notice the abundance of bar carts on the web. Not only are they adorable pieces of furniture to fit into smaller spaces, they also house all of those amazing bottles of wine you just had stashed in the back of your cupboard, or what about those beautiful cups no one ever gets to see.  Whether it’s for a party, or a permanent fixture of your home, here are five easy ways of styling your bar cart.

1. A bar cart doesn’t need to include only beverages, style it with one of your favorite bowls and add lemons, or use that trinket box you just can’t seem to find a use for.

2. Bar carts with wheels are a must, they are great for positioning  just about anywhere during  a party. Feel free to add a flower vase, vintage style decanters , and festive straws.

A Cosmopolitan Hotel Inspired Bachelor Pad by Studio 8 Design

Philippe Ho,  founder of Studio 8 Design,  describes his interior design philosophy as a dynamic fusion of the classic and contemporary. This Dallas Residence is no different, while mostly contemporary it has wonderful classic details that make this home one of a kind. We had the privilege to talk with Philippe about this amazingly stylish bachelor pad and he discussed some of the ups and downs of this extensive project.

Philippe’s client is a bachelor that travels extensively and wanted to come back to a “hotel atmosphere that felt like home”. He was also inspired by the trendy Zaza Boutique Hotel in Dallas. One of the challenges Philippe had to face was the existing collections that the client had inherited from his family. Philippe’s job was to add cohesion and unity to these pieces while keeping the contemporary feel his client so  strongly desired.  Despite the challenges faced, the end project was sleek and  contemporary and the client’s feedback was positive. “It’s a wonderful feeling when you can walk into your home and feel like you’re on a mini vacation,” said the client.

Join us as we take a mini tour of this luxurious Dallas Bachelor Pad.

Dallas Contemporary Dining Room by Studio 8 Design

The clients request was that the interior to feel like a hotel – sleek, comfort,cosmopolitan and luxurious, and this dining room is a clear example of just that.

Dallas Contemporary Living Room by Studio 8 Design

The design phase started out with the living room as the center of entertainment for Philippe’s client. The different pieces that were selected for the room were based on the client’s lifestyle.

Dallas Contemporary Living Room by Studio 8 Design

One of Philippe’s challenges was the antler chandelier in the living room. ” I figured what could be more Texas than that, I chose to design around that element and flow out from there to make it more innovative and to be able to capture the atmosphere of a boutique hotel that he was inspired by.”
