Whether you are having an impromptu get together or a friend drops by for a catch-up, it always makes great welcome to have a favourite drink on offer and I think a well stocked drinks cabinet makes an attractive home accessory, particularly if you are like me, partial to a tipple or two.

Rockett St George drinks trolley

A drinks trolley is not only practical but can be super stylish and this one from Rockett St George is one of my favourites. In brass and marble, it has just a hint of Art Deco in it’s fab shape.

A cabinet is even better than a trolley especially if your home bar is extensive and I love this glorious and yet so practical mirrored drinks cabinet from Jonathan Adler.




David Linley Tini time cocktail cabinet

This beautifully designed and constructed piece from David Linley is surely an antique of the future, and in the meantime it will make you the party host with the most. Private commission from David Linley

Paolo Moschino for Nicky Haslam

A charming and elegant drinks trolley from Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam which holds more than you think and is perfect for topping up drinks at a party.


Ralph Lauren Duke bar

Inspired by the 1930s and yet would look so comfortable in our current contemporary interiors, this glorious piece from Ralph Lauren in Rosewood and stainless steel is beautiful and functional.

Chaplins bar cabinet

If a statement piece is what you are after, look no further than the Classic Line bar cabinet from Chaplins. It also comes with optional lighting, castors and refrigeration.

Sweetpea and Willow Dolly Drinks Trolley

Finally and although possibly the simplest of the offerings on show, this is the one that I have my eye on. It is a beautiful piece and takes me right back to the seventies and my parents’ very formal dinner parties with my brother and I in the background eyeing up the drinks trolley. Say no more.  www.sweetpeaandwillow.com

Chin, chin everyone.

Film Friday is back! And this time we’re bringing you one very stylish office space from The Devil Wears Prada. This film is so crammed with gorgeous interiors and fashion that it was impossible to fit it all into one blog post, so for this film i’ll be bringing you not one but two posts full of delicious interior images.

First up this week is Miranda’s office at Runway magazine; this is definitely a fashion-worthy space. To start with you have that iconic New York skyline framed by large sweeping windows; paired with a totally impractical pale cream carpet and crisp white walls the whole space feels light, airy and literally on top of the city. Perfect for a power hungry Editor. Next up you have that fabulous glass desk and the leather power chair for Miranda to sit and glower in. I especially love the fact that the two smaller chairs on the other side of the desk  (for clients to cower in) are strategically lower than Miranda’s chair.

The whole scheme is monochrome, the only colour provided by plants  books and rows of perfectly lined up San Pelligrino bottles. Control freak? Miranda? How would you guess? The white panelled walls provide a suitably luxe backdrop and the deep windowsill doubles up as a window seat or bookcase. This monochrome scheme is further reinforced by the black coffee table just visible here with a vase full of fresh cream roses on top.

Guarding the entrace to Miranda’s office, the reception areas are just as understately glam, note the orange leather filing cabinets (Hermes orange for those fashion types amongst you) and glossy wooden desk. Not a post-it note in sight.

You know this isn’t your average office when Giselle makes an appearance as an office worker. The interiors really have to work hard when competing with supermodels and designer clothing at every turn; fortunately this gorgeous desk lamp and leather lined desk shelf are more than up to the job.

Yes there are some pretty gorgeous shoes on show in this image, but my eye is drawn to the cluster of framed prints and striking mirror displayed on the wall above the desk. And that drinks trolley (just on show on the right) is pretty fabulous too; a step classier than your average water cooler.

And finally – Just in case you’re wondering, this is a photo of Anna Wintour’s office (Actual editor of Vogue). Look familiar?
