Bar carts are for parties! But they are also for everyday. An artfully styled bar cart is much more fun and out of the way than a countertop full of bottles and glassware. Starting with my favorite bar cart, this beautiful Z-shaped rose gold bar cart.
In addition to providing a drink station outside of the kitchen for parties, I love using a bar cart in a dining room where there isn’t space for a traditional china cabinet. China cabinets are great, but they aren’t exactly rock n roll. I love the sculptural lines of this one:
Above all, I really like adding a bar cart to a living room. In the living room a glamorous bar cart looks ready to entertain yet functions as storage for your beautiful glassware, bar tools, and bottles.
When you live like a rockstar, the most important thing is to have fun and be comfortable in your living space. It’s about knowing what you love and enjoying it with your friends.
I have written about wine racks before. At the time I didn’t realize just how popular rockstar wine racks would be, and I didn’t realize just how fast the available styles change. Here is a new collection of music themed wine racks – a perfect way to store your wine and show your rockstar style!
Guitar wine racks
Cello wine rack
Though we don’t normally associate the cello with rock n roll, I couldn’t leave enough alone – given the beautiful shape and large storage capacity.
In Wayne’s World, Wayne wondered why roadies carry so many keys. The reason is that there is a lot of gear to lock up! The rest of us have gear, instruments, and music studio keys to carry around. Make sure your keys show your rockstar style! Some samples:
Everyone is looking to control their clutter. I’ve heard there are extreme minimalists that don’t have this problem, but I don’t know any. (I would think that for an minimalist the clutter problem would actually be worse, but anyway). In the spirit of controlling clutter and finding new, fun, and different ways to keep the clutter monster under control, my latest organization-crush is lunchboxes.
Lunch boxes. Not just for lunch anymore (but still useful for lunch too).
A lunch box is the right size and shape to fit on a shelf, tabletop, or inside a drawer to keep small things together and neat and tidy. Some places you may not have thought of using a lunchbox to keep small things:
Makeup table: I like a lunchbox inside the drawer of a makeup table for lipstick, makeup sponges, or other small tools.
Bedside table: for small things that collect on the bedside table like eyeglasses, keys, coins, etc.
Desk: for sticky notes, pens, paperclips, etc.
Hobby/craft area: for various small things
Music studio: for guitar picks, extra packs of guitar strings, cables, etc.
Since lunchboxes can close, they keep all these small things out of sight. This is also an opportunity to have some fun with the lunchbox design and show off more of your personality than a plain desk organizer.
Then sometimes, you really need a lunchbox just to hold your lunch. This one looks like a Marshall amp head:
It’s time for your domesticated musician to join the rest of the household as a full fledged member. Instead of that folding guitar stand your rockstar uses for playing out, here are some guitar grips, guitar stands, and other displays worthy of the beloved guitar.
