Dreaming of Design - Let's Have A Drink

     Today’s Dreaming of Design Wednesday is going to be a little different than the norm. This week I am going to show you some furniture pieces and a room that I have been seriously crushing on. 

     First up, is a room that I am head over heels for,  I would buy those chairs in a heartbeat if I could find them. I am trying to figure out a way to build them myself for our living room.

     I also currently really like all of the bars made from suitcases that I am seeing in home décor, vintage suitcases are easy to find at resale shops, flea markets and online, and a majority of the time they are pretty cheap.  The elegance, design and style of the 50’s-60’s has always appealed to me.  In our entryway I have made a small bar area to welcome guests into our home. Nothing says welcome like a fresh cocktail when you walk in the door. The first bar pictured would be great if you were tight on space, and could easily fit onto an entry table.

This wall mounted suitcase turned bar could be added to a gallery wall, not only adding functionality but dimension as well.   


     Since the outdoor entertaining season is upon us I thought I should end this post with some outdoor entertaining items that are swoon worthy.  I love this drink dispenser and stand from Ballard Designs (but really, what's not to love from Ballard Designs!) I would have two of these set up for company during the summer, one with iced tea and the other with lemonade.

These two nesting trays, also from Ballard Design, look great next to the beverage server and don’t take up much storage room.

Finally, this cart from Target would also be a great serving piece to have for entertaining outside, it could also do double duty and be used inside as your bar cart, or as an entry piece.

     Wow, with all of this talk about bars, bar carts and the outdoor entertaining I must be needing a margarita in my life! Thanks for stopping by Preston Drive, next time come visit me on the back patio, where I will hopefully be enjoying an ice cold drink.
