Last week the online design world was abuzz over photos of Lee Radziwill’s Paris apartment that were recently featured in T Magazine. As the younger sister of Jackie Kennedy, a royal princess, prominent socialite, style icon and friend to luminaries like Truman Capote and Andy Warhol, Radziwill, 79, is a truly fascinating figure. Her inspiring Parisian apartment where she lives part-time is ultra-feminine with elegant French furnishings, pops of pink, chinoiserie florals and gilded bronze accents. Check out the mood board we put together below for ideas on how to get this look!
One of my aboslute favorite pieces of occasional furniture is the always classic, highly versatile bar cart. In recent years, the bar cart has taken on a new multipurpose use in the home. Although it’s the perfect solution for those who love to entertain but don’t have room for a full bar, you don’t have to it just for serving drinks! You can repurpose your bar cart as a console table, styled up with a chic stack of books and a vase of pretty flowers, as additional storage for your favorite dinnerware and tabletop pieces, or even as a bedside table. From rattan or ultra-modern modern chrome to industrial looking metal or mod-inspired lucite, there are plenty of choices when it comes to style, although I’m particularly a fan of the more traditional French-inspired brass options. Here, I’ve rounded up the three best at high, low and mint condition vintage price points as well my favorite inspiration photos of some beautifully styled bar carts for your viewing pleasure! And another great tip if you’re looking to score a deal, is to scour Craigslist and eBay for vintage options. Try the search terms “bar cart” or “tea cart” and if you want to narrow down your search results even further, you can enter specific terms like, “brass”, “rattan”, etc. You’ll often find fabulous vintage options in great condition for under $100!
