I have been tasked with looking up bar ideas for the basement. I know what i want, but somehow my description of what i want does not translate into S understanding it. My poor boyfriend needs more than my flailing and flapping. So pictures i will find...hopefully.
I know it's not for everyone, but we want a retro inspired, diner like, drive in theatre type basement. My big issue is that i don't want it to look like it was a direction we HAD to go in because of the specific choices we are making. Like, gee, these black and white tiles must've been here, so retro is the only way to go. We're the ones installing the tiles, so i want retro meets timeless. You think that's out there?
So black and white tile on the diagonal in the bar portion, and of course i'm going to need retro counter stools. After that, i'm stuck. What should the actual bar look like? S wants glass block for authenticity, but i'm not finding that at all timeless. What about behind the bar? Mirror? Mirrors with shelves? Gah!
