Modern City Apartment With Custom Spiral Staircase

Styled Bar Cart with Black, Gold, Red and White Palette
Commit to the black and gold scheme in a major way with artwork, wallpaper or a quick update to your wall color. Then look for color-coordinated straws, like these black and gold ones that interior designer Jade Joyner, co-owner of Metal + Petal in Athens, Ga., used on her bar cart. Even with a black and gold palette, you can incorporate other colors. Joyner says she loves how refreshments have an element of style to them.
What's the perfect vehicle for winter entertaining? A bar cart of course! This affordable, glamorous piece of furniture takes your party to where ever you need it in your living room, dining room or even bedroom.
Metallic peacock-printed wallpaper creates a sophisticated backdrop to this contemporary entryway. An abstract golden console table is visually stunning, while bright purple table lamps add a burst of color.
Kit out your bar cart for the busy holiday season. A gleaming gold wine holder adds verticality. Crystal decanters are a more glamorous alternative to liquor bottles. Crystal pieces reflect light and add glamour and sparkle to your winter room with relatively little investment.
Coordinate small extras with your existing black and gold palette. Interior designer Jade Joyner, co-owner of Metal + Petal in Athens, Ga., placed matches with black tips into small apothecary jars, and arranged them on a gold bar cart. She selected other entertaining essentials, such as straws, in gold as well. Even the champagne bottle’s gold seal fits into the look, and pops against the black and white modern art backdrop.
Renovated Basement With Wet Bar and Industrial Lighting
This spacious basement was renovated to include a wet bar with industrial pendant lighting and a stainless steel countertop. The nearby staircase features a stone covered accent wall and hardwood steps.
Mini refrigerators are useful, but they aren't all that attractive. Personalize your dorm room refrigerator using strips of washi tape. We created an abstract stripe design with metallic gold tape. Chalkboard adhesive over the freezer allows you to further personalize the appliance. A light turquoise stacked shelf creates a cute and useful pantry for food and kitchen accessory storage.
