Perhaps some of you remember I promised a welcome drink as we did the tour of our future entry a few weeks ago. Someone commented that I forgot the drink (no names :)). So I better keep my promise and make sure my readers stay happy. On the drink menu today is a mango mojito, a rasberry mojito and of course the classic mojito for those who don´t want the healthy fruity stuff. Cheers, It’s Friday after all!
We plan to have a lounge area connected to the eating area. I visualize comfy lounge chairs, big rug and a fire place. I promise I a somewhat tour or mood board. I am down In Palm Springs, California right now and it got me thinking about where to put the old fashion butlers trolley or cabinet for wine, liquor bottles and glasses. I think it ads a fun and inviting touch. I am not a huge fan of drinks & liquor (love wine though) but I like displaying the bottles! We love to entertain and I know this will be appreciated among friends. I love the idea “help yourself”!
The 2 last pictures are my favorites. I almost kinda want go get myself a drink after all!
I was going through our furniture in my head and I have an old cabinet from 1896 that was a gift from my parents when I turned 30. It could be an option for the butler”(unfortunately don’t have a good picture of it now), I also have a small drink tray table but I was curious to see if I can use one of my old black trunks from a Seattle antique shop I shipped to Sweden years ago. Similar to the 2nd image. I have kept them in the basement and have been close to getting rid of them. I might see if I can give them new life with legs or a standing, before deciding if they should stay or go. I am not convinced it will fit with the rest of the furniture but who knows, maybe it will become that unique piece the room needs?
I love having the options.
I am enjoying a long weekend here in fabulous Palm Springs, and mama mia there are some nice homes here. Super cool architecture! Of course I forgot my camera but I will try to capture some with my phone…
Enjoy your weekend. A refill anyone?
