Glass or mirrored, natural wood or lacquer… Whatever the material, there’s no doubt about it: The coffee table is an instant focal point! (Especially when it has awesome accessories like these!)
In a living room or den, choosing the coffee table can help define (or accent) the entire space.
But what’s on that coffee table might be even more important than the table itself! And, conveniently, is a great and inexpensive way to change the look of a coffee table that makes you feel less than inspired.
Our two go tos: books and flowers.
A gorgeous stack of coffee table books not only looks pretty on the table and helps add color, pattern and contrast but also provides entertainment and inspiration time and time again. Coffee table books are one of our favorite things to decorate with–and, of course, one of our favorite gifts to give!
We wish we were better gardeners, but, fortunately, there are people out there who are willing to help! We think having a bevy of blooms in your own yard is a practical way to increase both your curb appeal and keep your home full of fresh flowers all year round.
Mom has the most gorgeous rose garden and my hubby had our rose garden installed for me for Valentine’s Day one year. It was a very practical gift because I’d rather have fresh blooms from the yard than anything else!
Amidst the low-lying books, flowers are good way to add height, and, if you know you won’t realistically have blooms all the time, candlesticks are a must! Plus, flickering flames add instant ambiance when having guests.
If you have a particularly unique or beautiful coffee table surface, keeping it sleek and minimal is a must.
For a low profile but maintaining a few flames, we love a beautiful decorative candle.
What about those little trinkets that top a book stack with flair?
For those long winter months when fresh blooms are scarce or prohibitively pricey, a succulent garden is a perfect solution.
A stunning table like this really speaks for itself…
A collection of boxes looks lovely and collected. Plus, it’s a great place to hide the remote!
Just how rooms can have one, spectacular statement piece, the same holds true with tables. The white on this book contrasts perfectly with the paint on the table, and, obviously, the peonies are breathtaking. But, day in and day out, the dog is a unique staple piece that subtly catches the eye.
