Designer Dish: Kelly Wearstler On Home Bars

kelly_wearstlerDesigner Kelly Wearstler is beloved for her glamorous interior style for places like Bergdorf Goodman’s BG restaurant and lounge, along with the Viceroy Hotels and Resorts. Now the Los Angeles-based designer is sharing her expert tips for creating a home bar perfect for entertaining guests. To start with, Wearstler suggests mixing different scales of tabletop and bar accessories against large leaves and vines. “A mix of materials, like a horn, brass, and ceramics, helps it look curated and rich,” she says. “Like you’re using a fun group of things you’ve collected over the years.” She also recommends arranging snacks in a thoughtful manner. “Think about the flow of the guests,” says Wearstler. “Arrange things so they can come, get their drink, their olive, a napkin a straw—it should be seamless.” In terms of cocktails, Wearstler stocks a variety of liquor and mixers, such as small bottles of ginger ale and seltzer, adding that the different drinks add varied color to the bar.
