Vintage Cocktail Glasses for Your Barcart

We have several sets of vintage cocktail glasses in the shop right now.  With nice weather upon us, it’s time to dream up some summer cocktails.  We personally like the Moscow Mule and had an amazing version recently at The Walrus and The Carpenter.  Using fresh ginger beer is key. And serving it up in a frosted vintage cocktail glass, even better!

Do you have a favorite cocktail you like to serve at parties?  What’s your go to Summer drink?

Finalizing the Dining Room

Well it didn’t take long for my client and I to agree on wallpaper for her dining room – we went with Serena & Lily’s Palmetto pattern in olive/turquoise.  It compliments her existing orange hue walls nicely.  Now I’m just trying to convince her to wallpaper the whole dining room to add a little more drama to the room and also play off her white wainscoting.  Wink. Wink.

Mary-Kelly-Dining-Room

The client already recovered the seats of her vintage 1940’s wood chairs (I attempted to find a similar chair style online for this design board) with Drygoods Design fabric.  The reclaimed wood dining table from Restoration Hardware will be delivered by the end of this month and once we have the wallpaper in place, will get to work styling the rest of the room.

Since my client already has a brushed brass bar cart from Restoration Hardware, it will be fairly easy to style it up with some vintage cocktail glasses, shakers, decanters, and other barware goodies.  The buffet table (attempted to find similar for this design board) will also remain as she had recently purchased it from a local artist.  It will be flanked by Schoolhouse Electric Lily Table Lamps.  I’ll then finish out styling the buffet with new and vintage accessories.

We will also replace her existing deep red roman window shades with white curtain panels, supported by walnut and brass curtain rods.  I personally like the horn finials from Anthropologie and think they’ll add a touch of whimsy to the space.  And lastly I included a ceiling pendant option to replace her existing craftsman style pendant.  I adore Schoolhouse Electric’s Vega 5 Chandelier in antique black and think would lend a modern industrial vibe to her room.

Stay tuned!

Styling a Kitchen Bar Area

bar shot 1

This past week I had the opportunity to glam up a bar area in a client’s kitchen. And since Christmas is around the corner, I knew I had to incorporate a little holiday whimsy into her space while retaining the glamour of her newly remodeled kitchen featuring white cabinets, carrara marble countertops, grey washed wide plank floors, and chrome hardware.  Her kitchen opens onto a newly remodeled family/tv room that will soon showcase furniture, a throw rug, and a bookcase/media center featuring blues, white, and grey.  I knew I wanted to incorporate these colors in her bar area so everything flowed.

I started with a staple – the mirrored tray from West Elm.  From here I shopped for some vintage pieces and found a great lucite ice bucket, martini book, and cocktail accessories including a glass cut decanter.

My client’s husband requested some high balls and I scored some vintage Libby glasses in a plaid cut glass pattern.  To tie in the blues, I found some beautiful crystal cut glasses at Anthropologie.  And for my client’s daughter, I threw in some blue rock candy swizzle sticks.

And because I think every room needs a hint of gilt, I added this adorable gold ram ornament from West Elm.

Vintage Barware from AnthologyHouse

With the warmer weather upon us, it’s time to start thinking about outdoor parties and concocting some yummy cocktails.  But a cocktail is not complete unless it’s served up (on the rocks or neat) in a beautiful vintage cocktail glass.  I have some gorgeous vintage glasses, an ice bucket and cocktail shaker for sale in the shop that would be perfect for that Bourbon Mule, Sidecar, or French 75.

New Pieces on Hunters Alley

I love the Hunters Alley’s tag line, ‘The Hunt is On” and completely relate when shopping for quality vintage pieces.  It is a hunt when seeking out vintage and some days you walk away with nothing after digging, scouring sales, and looking for that one of a kind piece. But on a good day, you pick up some amazing pieces, walk away with a huge smile on your face, and can’t wait to tell your friends what you scored.

I am thrilled to share my recent finds with you that I recently posted to the Hunters Alley storefront including a vintage ram perfume bottle, mid-century red + gold glasses and much more.  Stop by and check out the latest merchandise…and stay tuned as new pieces are added to the shop each week.

Need some inspiration on how to incorporate these lovelies in your home?  Check out some of the beautiful photos below :

It’s easy to dress up a book shelf with all white ceramics and color popping book covers. The vintage ram head perfume bottle would look stunning when displayed with other white ceramics.

Add some glamour to a Hollywood Regency office space with the Stiffel Table Lamp available in the shop.  I like how Tobi Fairley paired a pink chair and art work with this white desk.

The vintage gold branches hung above this desk at Corina Kramer’s home are beautiful.  You can get the same look with the vintage syroco gold branches available in the shop.

And who doesn’t love a good bar area for serving up cocktails in some of your favorite vintage barware.  The mid-century red + gold glasses featured in the shop would be perfect displayed on a gold tray on your tabletop or barcart.  Add some personality by displaying small brass figurines, a vintage decanter and lamp and you’ve got the perfect spot for hosting your next soiree.
