I live in a 487 square foot apartment so I have to make most of my space and storage while still keeping the décor 'cozy chic.' (Yes, I coined the term as the ultimate décor goal for my home.)
One of my favorite focal points that serves the purpose of storage and entertainment is my bar cart. I got this 2-shelved, gold mirror cart on Amazon for next-to-nothing.
I tend to switch up the theme of my cart quite often based on holidays, seasons, and entertaining functions. But of course there are usually weeks, if not a month or so at a time that I'm not really using it so I keep it simply but chic-ly decorated.
Because my apartment is done in all whites and blush tones I decided that a white/gold theme to my bar cart would be perfect. It's simple, classy, but still a pop of fun that transitions well with the whole room.
So, this is my 'Every Day Bar Cart Style':
1st Essential: Fresh Flowers and Decorative PieceRule #1 for your bar cart is to always have fresh flowers. They bring the entire cart to life and just make for a more airy, homey feel. I ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS get my flowers from Trader Joes because they have the absolute best selection and I can get a good 1.5-2 weeks out of one bouquet.
Also, in order to spice up the style a bit I always add a focal decorative piece like the white ceramic pineapple shown. For other holidays I change this up, but with spring/summer right around the corner it's a perfect every day piece.
