The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of green oxidized copper mineral deposits probably isn’t opulence. However, that’s exactly what the malachite wallpaper on the sides of this butler’s pantry project.
The mirrored glass bar shelving above the storage cabinets reflect the polished copper crystals deposited on the side walls back into the room for a dramatic sparkling effect. This is offset by the black countertop and lighting sconces which provide a dark accent and let the shiny sheets of laminated malachite gems be the design highlight.
Home bars are making a comeback and the butler’s pantry is becoming popular right along side. No longer relegated for just china storage, these nooks are being transformed into prominent bar staging areas and elegant displays.
Some include a wet sink for added convenience since they are almost always built into or along a wall. Plumbing is much easier and definitely more cost effective to run this way as opposed to your home’s main bar which usually stands alone or offset to allow aisle and seating access.
This pantry is stocked with lots of glassware, bartending tools, mixers and a variety of serving trays for carrying supplies out to the waiting guests at your party. The white cabinetry below has three sliding drawers above several hinged door sections for storing larger items out of sight.
Looks like gin and tonics as well as Pimm’s Cups are on the drinks menu judging by the liquor bottles displayed on the front row of the wicker tray. Cocktail herbs and garnishes appear to be sliced and ready too.
Your guests will be green with envy knowing you have the luxury of a butler’s pantry to complement your home bar for entertaining. What will you stock in yours?
