Here at Willow and Grace, we follow so many creative and stylish Instagram friends and we are obsessed with the new-ish craze of a coffee station. I first saw my home decor role model, Joanne Gaine's do this on fixer uppers with a butcher block counter top and some beautiful floating shelves.
Making your home make sense for you
Let's face it, we can decorate and make our home as beautiful as we want but if it's not functional or the decor doesn't serve a purpose then what's the point? If you are an avid coffee drinker, like myself, then a coffee bar will be the holy grail to display your adorable coffee mugs and with the weather getting cold and running out to Starbucks becoming more of a luxury than it used to be, having an at-home coffee bar just makes sense.
It's a great space for entertaining and gives you a space for beverages while hosting. It is also a wonderful place to display one of God's gifts to Earth… 🍫 and ☕. Adding a coffee or hot cocoa bar is such a simple way to add some personality to any kitchen or dining room, while also creating a space that you will regularly use.
Amazon Coffee Bar Essentials:
One of my favorite places to shop, or at least find inspiration is Amazon, and they did not disappoint when it came to creating a coffee bar for our home. Amazon came in clutch with everything we needed to create our space!

I feel like once a year, I get this itch to redo a room. I don't know if I am watching too much HGTV or what, but I can't stop myself from looking at the room in a whole new life and entirely wanting to transform it. My husband has typically talked me down from the ledge and taken the sledgehammer before I take the entire room down to its studs 😂. It is so easy to feel like a room needs a complete transformation to love it again, but a little bit of furniture repositioning and a few new key decor pieces can completely change the look of a space for a fraction of the price.
Who doesn't love a good ole' antique? I always think it is funny when people purchase new decor that is supposed to look old and worn. When decorating my shelves, I always love to mix some seasonal new items with my timeless antiques. I feel like it adds to the character of the space. Adding in new and old things help to add life and dimension to your home, and in my opinion, they help to give it the feeling of being lived in, and if you are a bargain hunter, you can find many of them ridiculously cheap at flea markets, thrift stores or yard sales.
