STEP 1: CHOOSE THE RIGHT PIECES

The first tip is to make it look curated and rich, by choosing the pieces wisely. Try to mix different type of materials to look like you’ve been collecting different pieces over the years giving your home bar decor a fun and interesting look.

STEP 2: START WITH THE LARGE ITEMS

Kelly Wearstler starts by adding the bigger pieces such as the functional and the decorative. On the bar try to keep only the most frequently-used and beautiful pieces while all the other things you can keep behind the bar. If you want some ideas, things such as a bowl to hold ice and sodas and some bartender tools are always a great way to start it.

STEP 3: BRING IN GREENERY

Just like Wearstler says, it’s time to balance everything and bring some green to your home bar – ” I needed to bring a little of the outside in. There needs to be a dialogue between in- and outdoors.” – Kelly Wearstler said.

STEP 4: ADD SMALL, FUNCTIONAL, DECOR

Since you’ve already brought the big pieces and the most eye-catching decor it’s time to bring some small details, which will be the cherry on the top of the cake. Try to add beautiful and stylish small pieces but at the same time functional. A great example of it is the next image from Kelly Wearstler.

STEP 5: GET CREATIVE WITH DRINKS

What is a home bar without drinks, right? The goal here is to be creative and bring different drinks to add interesting colors to the sparkle of the bar accessories. Think about 4 or 5 cocktails that you would like to do and you’re ready to start calling your friends and family to pass by.
