The Chinoiserie Bar Cart

With the holidays and entertaining upon us, nothing is more chic than a beautifully staged and stocked bar cart. Stores like Pottery Barn and West Elm are even putting in areas devoted to stylish bar furnishings.

You might be lucky enough to have a fantastic faux bamboo bar cart or perhaps a Chinoiserie lacquered chest you use as a bar. But in fact, any bar cart or surface can be made into a Chinoiserie bar by adding some well chosen Chinoiserie touches. Here, Society Social has styled their Devlin bar cart with lots of Chinoiserie. In upcoming posts, I will feature my own bar cart and styling tips. My daughter's bar cart and entertaining tips were recently featured in Washington Post Express and I will share that as as well.
