Kelly and Co. designed an amazing space for their client who loves to play music and invite exciting acts from all over the world to join him for events benefiting his music foundation. Also included in the space is this fabulous bar made out of reclaimed wood for kicking back between sets.
Philip Erdoes, CEO of The New Traditionalists, knows exactly what goes into creating a great bar cart, and how to put it to good use. "Great barware is essential, and at The New Traditionalists we love vintage pieces. Artisanal cocktails always taste better in old-school glasses. Ebay has some sweet midcentury glasses and accessories."
This home cleverly makes use of the awkward space under the stairs by turning it into a bar! Built in shelves of varying lengths neatly fill up the narrow top area; below them, a sink, cabinets, even a mini fridge are ready to get the next cocktail party started.
Dark wood cabinets and bar add an air of luxury in this traditional bar. A silver mantel and a black and white, checked tile floor are stylized touches that create a traditional feel for the bar area while the stainless steel backsplash adds a modern flair.
The outdoor space in this home is complete with an outdoor bar cart to help the homeowners host their guests. Made from natural wood, the cart is designed to withstand the elements as well as provide an elegant way to provide libations for guests.
This kitchen sink has a view of the distinct built-in living room shelving. An open wood bar counter connects the two spaces and adds visual interest to this vignette. Yellow and red patterned backsplash adds a pop of color to this otherwise neutral space, connecting it to the red wall and rich wood shelving in the living room. An intricate detailed entertainment center filled with interesting wood and earthy accessories provides the focal point for the living space and the view from the kitchen sink.
To make a big farmhouse statement in your kitchen, use old wood in places where you might otherwise use drywall or new trim and molding. In this rustic kitchen, the bar or island is covered in reclaimed wood, selected by Athens Building Co. Rustic stools complete the effect.
The first decision was to choose to remodel the existing structure rather than tear it down. It was important to preserve the character and focus on the sustainable opportunities and inherent embodied energy. As much lumber as possible was salvaged and used throughout the space, such as here at the barista bar.
Who needs a beverage? Everyone will want one in this striking and spacious wet bar area. The embellished floor medallion inlay, beige wainscoting and matching over-sized crown molding open this space up and make it fun and inviting.
