Hello and happy Friday! There’s not much on our agenda this weekend other than prepping for a birthday party and of course the Superbowl. I’m also working on some painterly fabric prints for spring, I can’t wait to share them with you in a few months.

Coffee Table Styling

January 28th, 2015

We don’t have a coffee table in our family room anymore, we took it out a few months ago because I was tired of it, but I’m looking at others with different proportions. I’m taking my time finding the perfect one, but I do so love a beautifully styled coffee table with an organized collection of considered elements. Coffee tables offer us a place to gather and display our favorite things.

Can we look at some pretty ones today? Yes, let’s. Here’s a great go-to grouping that works well: stacked books + vase of flowers + decorative object or two.

Another useful trick is to include a tray in the mix to corral a small collection of items so they feel controlled, also consider candles for ambiance and scent.
