With this time of year ringing in the most festive of seasons, we thought we’d celebrate by sharing some of our designers’ favorite home bar photos! They were asked to submit photos of bars that inspired them and to tell why. We love what they picked!

The bar setup below just makes me so happy! It is fresh, cheerful, and looks like it actually gets used. The clean brass design mixed with the greenery and fresh produce is spot on. Can we say brunch cocktail?

I love this bar cart because it is ideal for a smaller space or for someone who doesn’t always need a bar accessible. The accessories are clean and do not clutter the bar, giving the essentials plenty of room to shine!

INTERIOR DESIGNER TODD PRINCE

I love the bar cart we have in our own home! We use it every night. It’s acrylic, so it’s really cool without having too much visual weight. And who doesn’t love enjoying a cocktail prepared at such a fun “work station?!”

I love how this beautiful sideboard has been transformed into a functional bar, just by simply topping it with a tray.  This can be done with any console table, buffet, or credenza. Place your bottles, decanters, and a few glasses on the tray.  Store the rest of the essentials inside the piece of furniture.

INTERIOR DESIGNER MARY COURTNEY JOHNS

Being that I like my surroundings to be visually clean, I love that with this setup you have the option to close the doors when not imbibing! The glasses and bottles are kept organized and easily accessible. The aqua lacquer and brass base and hardware only add a splash of fun to this inviting piece!

INTERIOR DESIGNER KATHERINE SHELTON

What I love most about this home bar is that it does not look like a home bar!  A table and counter stools placed in front of clean custom mill work that is outfitted with a mirrored back and glass shelves to house all of your shiney bar essentials. Then surrounded with built ins that are just filled with a mix of beautiful old and new books. I also really love the stark white and caramel color palate.  Blends perfectly with the color of fine whiskey and scotch!
