Drinks trolleys have made a stylish comeback and are wheeling their way into your bar, living room and office… Hey, roll it wherever you want it!

We share 3 ways to style your drink trolley
1. Scandi dining room
Styling tips for a clean, contemporary look:
Keep it fresh – add fruit like lemons or other citrus to your trolley. They are great for G&Ts and add pops of colour to your display.
Add a piece of art – include an oversized framed art piece on the trolley. This creates texture and a focal point to an otherwise plain backdrop.
Less is more – keeping in tune with the contemporary look, choose a colour scheme that will adhere to this. Green, white and black with a splash of yellow work wonderfully together.
2. Retro meeting room
Styling tips for a trendy, retro look:
In with the old and in with the new – contrast your pieces with definition. Some artefacts are vintage and classic (the trolley), while others are trendy and contemporary (the wallpaper).
Eclectic is cool – don’t be afraid to mix up the style of the components. Combine treasure boxes, heirloom dominoes and decanters with high fashion objects, trays and glasses.
Multitask – make the most of dual purpose items with strategic organisation. Use your jug as a vase when you are not using it for serving guests.
3. Panelled wall office
Styling tips for a masculine look:
Dark room – dark hues on your wall add a rich and sleek appeal to your space. This wooden cladded wall lends warmth from the wood, as well as style and sophistication in its black stain finish.
Gold rush – statement pieces like this brass trolley and Champagne and wine cooler bring boldness and a dab of luxury.
