9 Notes
  • That console is so gorgeous… I’m too scared to see what the price of it is!!

  • Abbie – thank you for answering the inquiries about the lovely console

    {Tara} – as Abbie said, it’s not too bad to start + keeping it stocked would be dependent on how fast you go through the supplies :)

    Hello everyone! Just a quick note to let you know that the console pictured is from Marston & Langinger, and this particular model is from the UK, but there is also a US site – hope that helps!


  • I actually got the console at a local boutique that is no longer in business… geez, I think it was about 4 years ago. They were using it as a display, and I just asked if I could buy it. I also bought the matching side table. It is perfect next to my sleeper chair in my home office.

    Tara- Setting up a bar is not really that bad. If you buy a few things here and there, it doesn’t pack as much of a financial punch as if you buy a ton. You could start with smaller bottles, too. We have vodka, gin, tequila, rum (both spiced and Bacardi), whiskey, brandy (small bottle) and Kalhua. You only need a few mixers, too. If you start w/ vodka, rum and whiskey, you should be good.

  • That console is beautiful–so elegant and simple!

  • That is a lovely, lovely console. And like the reader above, I would love to know where you found it. Can you share your source?
    Thank you!

  • I’ve been dying to make a little bar area in my apartment…but, I feel like it would all add up and be so expensive to keep it stocked! This one is so lovely!

  • I like that console too!

  • Abbie – where did you get it?? I was just thinking that is exactly what we’re looking for in our dining room!

  • This is too funny. I have that console! I even found a way to use it at our wedding. I’ve never seen it anywhere else before.
