Accessories: Domestic Bar Roundup

Julie Carlson February 11, 2011

According to British decorator and entertaining expert Rita Konig, "A drinks tray breathes life into a room. It immediately gives a living room the sense that living indeed goes on there. Much like bookcases, a drinks tray adds depth, is welcoming to the visitor, and gives a few clues to the tastes of the inhabitants." For advice on putting together a cocktail collection, consult Konig's piece Here's to Cocktail Trays at the NY TImes.
