Renovation Progress: Inspiration for our Home Bar

Inspiration for our diner and Mexican themed home bar

We’re so close with our kitchen now, the floor is almost laid and we’ve picked out each piece we want to make it our dream kitchen/diner. Our next project will be to furnish the home bar area we want to put in at the far side of the room.

Super cool homewares store, Bo Concept, asked me to tell you guys about their brand new Edinburgh store’s designer furniture and home collection and it’s given me the heart eyes for what I want to do with our home bar space.

1. This crazy patterned rug would add some comfort to the bar and lounging area as the main kitchen floor is chequerboard tiled, but I think the mismatch of black and white patterns would be really fun too.

2. & 3. We want to give the bar area a bit of a Mexican Fiesta theme and these hand painted skull bottles are ideal for displaying on the booze shelf, long after they’ve been emptied of tequila and continuing with the Mexican theme we couldn’t possibly live without these cactus cocktail glasses as a little extra touch!

4. I love, love, love hanging bulbs with cool cables and this one is red, a perfect addition to the space to make it feel like a real city bar. A few of these hanging at different heights would be my dream lighting situation.

5. I love this amazing red leather sofa bed which would match perfectly with our American Diner themed vinyl seating booth and also give us extra room for when guests come to stay – something that’s always been important to me in a dream home. You can design your own day beds by choosing the style you want and from a gazillion fabric choices!

As you may know, I have a soft spot for a few things in Edinburgh (namely Red Squirrel bar, Mary’s Milk Bar and hello, that amazing castle) so it’s not like I needed an excuse to go back, but Bo Concept have just opened a new store in Edinburgh and I’m all about the super cool house things right now so I may just have to take a trip to see a few things in person.

Eating Out In Tenerife: Harley’s American Restaurant

Cadillac Dining Cars, Tenerife

We discovered Harley’s American Restaurant a few years ago when we first visited Tenerife and enjoyed a couple of breakfasts in their fun Cadillac dining cars, so when we arrived back for our late Summer holiday at the end of last year we were more than happy to have another visit! We managed to squeeze all 6 of our party into one of the cars, though it was a little tight. As eating out in Tenerife goes, it’s definitely a fun experience… for kids young and old ;)

Mexican Breakfast, Tenerife

Best Frappuccino Tenerife

The menu didn’t seem to have changed at all since our last visit, but I managed to pick something I hadn’t tried before and wished I’d eaten it all of the times I’ve visited Harley’s – Mexican Breakfast Burrito, it was super tasty! The inside is pure British breakfast with great tasting sausage and bacon, but the outside is very Tex Mex with cheese and jalapenos soaking into the tortilla wrap. Of course, the whole thing was topped with a fried egg too! Nothing about this meal was remotely Canarian, haha!

On a friend’s recommendation I tried a frappuccino flavoured with real amaretto… when in Rome, eh? It was freaking delicious!! Love the topping of coffee beans, so cute. I’m going to have to start adding them to my coffees at home.

Eating Out In Tenerife

I haven’t tried Harley’s evening menu, but I’m lead to believe it’s quite a fun setting for night time entertainment and they have a decent cocktail menu. I’ve also never actually been inside (why wouldn’t you sit in a Cadillac in the sunshine?), but you can see the cars and motorbikes through the window and it definitely looks worth a browse if that’s your thing.
