Would You Have An At Home Bar?

I love the idea of an at home bar...Mac is totally against it, he thinks it makes a space look cluttered.  But after getting some fabulous decanters and looking at these pictures how can I resist?  Luckily for Mac we don't live together, because I'm already planning my bar. Here are some ideas that have been inspiring me...

My almost one bedroom apartment is so small I know I don't have room for a full bar cart, but I adore the idea of using a dresser top (especially since my living room has a dresser just like the one on the right).  

I also love the look of these two more traditional carts, clean and simple with a lot of style.  Something about having a bar at home makes me feel like I'm in an old movie.  What do you think?  Would you have an at home bar or does it clutter the space?  Any suggestions?

  1. I've always wanted a bar cart in my home! Some people think it's too Mad Men - esque, but I love it! West Elm has some beautiful ones that I'm currently watching to see if they go on sale!! =)

  2. I love the way these carts look, but I don't know if we would use it enough to display in our home. I would love to keep a cart in the pantry and pull it out for special occasions.

    1. Great idea! Wouldn't that be fun to pull out for a party?

  3. Love me a good at home bar! I have one set up in my house and it's the perfect little space for get togethers!

  4. oooo! I love the one on the antique trunk! I'm totally nabbing that idea for my apartment!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I really appreciate the comment!

  5. I get so many compliments on my bar cart - I'm for it! LOVE your blog. Count me as your newest follower. :)

  6. We have a built-in bookcase in our hallway that's the perfect thing for our bar, but your dresser sounds perfect! Decanters sound like a perfect way to keep things coordinated!

  7. I am TOTALLY with you Brigette! I love the idea of a cute little bar cart - I do a lot of entertaining and I think it would be such a wonderful addition to our living room. I am swooning over all these photo's you posted. Every time I walk into a thrift store I look for something I can transform into a fun little bar cart. Some fun decanters or bottles wouldn't hurt either ;)
