Raise your hand if you've already sacrificed the idea of a strict summer diet in the name of a shaken spicy margarita or frosГ© this season. Summer is the quintessential carefree season when barefoot beach walks meet backyard dinner parties. And even though we love sipping on fresh summer cocktails on a rooftop somewhere, there is also something to be said about entertaining at home-as long as it's easy.
So how do you ensure that you're always ready for an impromptu cocktail hour or kitchen dance party? It all starts with a well-stocked bar cart. If you have one update to make to your home this summer, this should be it-and it's a quick and easy one. To get you started, we rounded up our favorite bar decorating ideas for every style. Whether you're a diehard traditionalist or a streamlined minimalist, we have the bar cart for you. Get your home ready for summer entertaining this weekend-you'll be shaking Palomas in no time.
For the Minimalist
For a perfectly minimalistic look, do as Niki Brantmark of My Scandinavian Home does and pair a simple modern brass bar cart with a black-and-white frame and brass mobile. Finish off the look with a stylish Bluetooth speaker-because you can't have a party without music.
For the ModernistPatrick Cline
In this modern Aspen home, interior designer Hillary Thomas paired a streamlined Crate and Barrel brass bar cart with striking abstract art. She stocked the bar with a variety of cocktail essentials, a silver ice bucket, and an assortment of crystal decanters.
For the Fashion-ForwardChris Patey for MyDomaine ; STYLING: Wayfair
In our co-founder Hillary Kerr's Los Angeles office, a mirrored black Serena & Lily bar cart is paired with a leather strap mirror, a brass pineapple, and an orchid. Who says you can't mix business with pleasure?
For the TraditionalistKristian Walker
When Alysa Cameron relocated from New York City to a quieter life in Schoolcraft, Michigan, she wanted her dГ©cor to reflect her 1867 Italianate-style home. In the living room, she painted the walls a stately green and paired a vintage bar trolley with a nude drawing and sculptural palms. It's the perfect spot to shake up a Manhattan.
For the Free SpiritNicole Cohen
Wardrobe stylist Sarah Copper scored quite a find with this Milo Baughman bar cart. Pairing it with a Damien Hirst painting, she uses the space to display anything from cocktail essentials to a collection of her favorite books.
