Empire Style Bedroom

Not everything needs to be period to be pretty. Like this bed for instance. Made during the late 19th Century when the period styles started to get reinvented and revived. Wouldn’t mind staying all day everyday in this one until winter has left New York City.

If you dont have one – get one. Console tables with a stone top are not only the prettiest but the most practical. Stock up with ingredients to make a basic cocktail then pimp the table with crystal carafes, mixers, garnishes, and tools. Place the bottles on a silver tray, get cute napkins, coasters and cool glasses. You will have happy guests because who doesnt love a host/hostess that hands out a cocktail?!
