The Queer Interior Team is psyched that we’re featured on Zillow.com today. Big ups to the amazing folks who chipped in to style, decorate, and capture these enviable bar-carts!
We put together 4 distinct bar cart set-ups for your Mad Men viewing party, house warming or just to impress your next one night stand. The fabulous shoot for Zillow.com was made possible by a talented team of Brooklyn movers and shakers! Kristen Blush who we’ve worked with before got effortlessly stunning images of each cart on location at Patina Rentals. The floral designs by Hops Petunia captured the mood of each bar-cart. Guest staring: Foxy and Winston bottle openers, Van Brunt Stillhouse booze, and lemons and limes from the Park Slope Food Coop. Below are just a few of my favorites!
Head to Zillow and comment on your favorite and spread the love!
The above shot is one of my favorite. The pink accents bring the 60s Shoshanna out in me. The flowers by Hops Petunia are spot on! #GIRLS
This vintage guy is the hot nerd in the bunch. He’s got a twee thing going, but he’s butched up by the trophy and oil painting. Highly dateable.
On set we were calling this set up the modern painter and it ended up having a very new-money feeling that I love in the final look.
This was everyone’s favorite look of the day. Maybe because it evoked so much Summer vibes. We’re itching for the west coast and this little piece of heaven could really scratch! LOVE!
Furniture can be expensive. However, it is something that you need for your home. You do not have to spend thousands of dollars to get the look that you want. There are ways to reduce how much you spend on fine furniture. Read this article for some helpful advice to get the best deals.
Before purchasing a piece of furniture, always open drawers and doors. You should not purchase a piece of furniture if the drawers do not open all the way and close evenly. Make sure the doors stay open and close properly. You should also check the knobs or handles to make sure they are properly attached.
Before you put any furniture cleaner on your items, you need to check a small place to see if there are any damages. If there are any problems after you place the product on the small area, you will know that this is not the right thing to use on your things.
Don’t be afraid to haggle. In this way, furniture is like a car. There’s typically a lot of mark up in that price. You can normally get anywhere from 10% up to 20% off when you are a confident haggler. You may feel a little weird doing it, but it could save you hundreds of dollars.
Check the legs of any furniture before you buy. Look for furniture that has sturdy wooden legs that are properly joined to the frame of the piece. Nailed on wood legs or plastic molded legs are not as stable, and can damage floors. If you are looking at sofas, try to find one with a fifth leg, located in the middle for added stability and support.
Keep your options open when you are shopping for furniture. You do not have to stick with just your local furniture store. There are many options that you can explore. Apply what you have learned from this article when you shop for furniture next time. You are sure to get a great deal for your money.
