{at this moment: bar carts}

It seems that every autumn, we fall in love all over again with all things preppy, equestrian, and ivy-league-inspired -- crested blazers, tartans and plaids, and bar carts, which have become a style staple -- and, since light and flirty summer dresses have {regrettably} been replaced with long cashmere scarves and soft cardigans, shall happily succumb to the wind-rippled days with a glass of autumn wine . . .

{p.s.} a previous round-up here

*sigh* I am currently searching for the perfect bar cart to fill a nook in my dining room.

These examples are awesome [my favorites: # 2 and # 5].

we've got a bar cart at my childhood home - i must remember to tell my mom that she's really fashionable =)

i think we need to look for beautiful ways of coping with autumn. i'm looking forward to wearing my bottle green/plum tartan scarf with matching plum buttery soft leather gloves when the temperature starts to drop!

Hi there !

I've just found one (last monday) in a thrift store for my husband. Now, he can show his 3-4 best whisky bottles and his cocktail shakers with style. I might give it a makeover in a while, but for now, I leave it as it is. You can check it out if you want : http://nocesdecoton.canalblog.com/archives/2009/10/05/15317826.html (and don't worry, I'm french, but I try to write my blog in both French and English).
Hope you like it !

Fantastic ideas. I have been looking for the perfect country-modern-glamourous-bar-cart for years... perhaps you have re-ignited the flame. Flea markets this weekend? Sounds like the perfect excuse.
As always thank you for the inspiration...

I'm trying to think of the perfect drink set to put on my drink cart! I think I would drape a plaid throw over mine :)

Every grown-up apartment needs a bar cart. I've been on the hunt for ages. Which means I'm not quite a grown-up yet, I guess!

Must be something in the air - I posted a pic of my "tea trolley" today!

I have such a fascination with bar carts. I love the idea of a dark, moody, Ralph Lauren style men's apartment, with bold glasses and liqueur on a stunning silver and black cart.

Though, I love the last little one, with wheels -- the shape is so pretty, and the look could work with so many styles.
