The Wet Bar

| One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven | Eight | Nine |

Every year as the holiday season approaches, I find myself looking for ways to enhance our entertaining spaces and collections.  One of the prime entertaining spaces in my house is the bar counter that separates the kitchen from the living room.  It is where the guests always gather as I'm preparing the food in the kitchen and where my husband often enjoys a pre-dinner cocktail.  Although it is not technically a wet bar (since it doesn't contain a sink),  I like to treat it as one.  This is one of the few places I can furnish for adults only. Although lately my 3 year old son Leo enjoys climbing up on the bar stools to order his snacks and beverages from me since I'm often standing on the other side prepping dinner. 

When we first moved into our home 3 years ago, we had so many spaces to furnish that I neglected this special area.  But I now realize it is one of those small spaces that can make a big impact if accessorized the right way.  It is central to our main living areas and it is one of the few places I don't have to make child friendly.  So, as our shopping list of "big items" gets smaller and smaller, my list of accessories is getting bigger and bigger.  I've put together an inspiration board for myself and now will begin the search for great bar accessories and glassware.  And I will soon be posting a few more chic bar accessories I've come across.  Do you have any small spaces in your house that can have a big impact if given the attention it deserves?
