Homemaking: The Bar

DenaMarch 24, 2014

The bar in our living room is one of my favourite spots in the house. Because our home is small, I don’t have many areas where I can display things. We try to be minimalist and not accumulate a lot of “stuff.” Almost all of our spaces are functional. Still, the bar in our living area is one of the few spots where I can decorate. I change up the “display” every few months and include little things that bring joy to our home.

My cousin’s wife made me a gorgeous coaster set at Christmastime. I’ve been moving the set around the house for awhile, trying to locate its perfect home. I think I’ve found it at the center of the bar. The beautiful tiles in shades of green fit perfectly in the room. I love to keep fresh flowers about and this mason jar filled with early spring blooms is right at home on top of the leaf-themed coasters.

Happy Monday, friends. Here’s hoping for a blessed week.

    This is just lovely! Same here, small home – try to live minimally. I have two very small surfaces that I am able to decorate without the risk of toddler destruction, so I try to be extra picky with my creativity. I use mason jars for my pens and pencils, after seeing your wonderful photos I am definitely using them for fresh flowers this Spring!

      You too, although Monday is almost over now! 🙂 It is warming up here in Kansas, my irises are sprouting and getting green! Some of my neighbors already have blooms, after such a crazy Winter it is nice to finally see some life! Have a great week!

      Thanks, Crista. No!!! I wish there were blooms around here — this bunch is from Trader Joe’s. I think they come from South America. *Sigh…* Hopefully we’ll have our own soon enough!! <3
