Uninspired in Your Home Office? Have a Drink

Home improvement projects can feel like a never ending process, but there are always fun little touches you can add to really bring a room to life. Inspired once again by Mad Men, I made a small yet impactful addition to the home office… what else? A bar!

Tiffany & Co. decanter, CB2 shaker, Alessi spoon, Anthropologie bowl, Williams Sonoma glasses and cocktail napkin, West Elm tray{}

I’m not a whiskey or a scotch drinker, so I filled the lovely decanter (a wedding shower gift from my dear friend) with Grey Goose. While I may not be pouring myself  a plentiful serving on the rocks at 1pm like Don Draper, it’s fun to enjoy a cocktail in the office at the end of a work day with the hubby or girlfriends. {}

Aside from a nice drink now and then, the other key to a successful business is good organization. This modern credenza from CB2 houses unsightly items like the printer, and provides the perfect excuse to buy lots of fun storage boxes. They will serve a satisfying purpose and provide a nice treat every time you slide the doors open.{}

  4. you’re making me want gin & tonics. like now. unfortunately it is only 3pm here and i do not have a bar in my office….sad.

  5. I feel as though the office bar should have burning mandarin additions. Am I wrong? Also, Id like a credenza like yours. That is all.

  6. Love it! I totally am going to install “cocktail” hour in my home office with similar fabooo accessories!
