Bar Styling with AnthologyHouse

 There is nothing more chic to me than a beautifully styled bar. As you see from all these examples, beyond the essentials, one of the best ways to infuse your bar with style and personality is by adding some vintage pieces. Vintage glassware, ice buckets, and pitchers are functional as well as elegant choices. Also be sure to add a fun vintage piece or two like a brass animal, foo dogs, a pair of Chinese figurines, a pineapple - whatever reflects your style. I have a giraffe, a hippo, and a pineapple on my bar cart.

One of the best sources anywhere for vintage pieces for your bar (and for stunning vintage bar carts) is AnthologyHouse. I hope you have already visited their wonderful Etsy store here. They have also just partnered with Chairish for larger items, furniture, and high end vintage pieces. Very exciting news! Chairish is an online consignment marketplace for design obsessed people to buy and sell exceptional pre-owned home furnishings. Chairish has been featured in many magazines including House Beautiful, Elle Decor, and Country Living.

Below I have included some of my favorite AnthologyHouse vintage decor for styling your bar. With holiday entertaining around the corner, this is a great time for it.

  2. Perfect timing! I just won a vintage "hollywood style" bar cart on e-bay...now can't wait to furnish per your examples! franki

  3. I love all of these, Beth! I just went on Anthology House' Etsy store and saved it as a favorite. I plan to do some Christmas shopping there. Have you been to that amazing vintage cocktail store in Old Town Alexandria? They have some very cool things!!

  4. Everything here is soo cool!! Love a chic barcart and these make the grade!!

  5. Thanks for this! I just "revised" my bar cart layout. What do you do with your outdoor ginger jars in the wintertime? I just brought mine inside where they are displayed on either side of the bar cart.

  6. Wow, you knocked this one out of the park! I'm just in awe of your ability to discover such finds on a budget.
