I think the only thing that would make me go back in the closet is a good stiff drink. Enter Real Simple.


Here's what it looked like before the makeover.


And here it is now! (Click twice to enlarge.) 


Of course, there's lots of great vintage barware from our Etsy store, including this super chic brass and teak tray, together with ten glass swizzle sticks
that would make any drink feel fancy! The Greek Key low-balls on the
shelf were a gift from our good friend Steve McKenzie from Larson-Juhl. Remember how he helped me think inside the box
with all those beautiful, vintage baby finds from the flea market?
Finally, a huge thank you to Kendell Cronstrom and PJ Mehaffey for
including me in the issue and of course to Nikolas Koenig for the great photography. Now, onto more important matters: Cocktail, anyone?
