The coffee table is often the centerpiece of your living room. We’ll show you how to style a coffee table using just 5 simple elements.
5 Elements to Style A Coffee Table
I have many beautiful decorating books and I love to use them on my coffee table. Group your favourite books together in a pile by themselves or place them in a tray. Grouping books with similar spine colours works well.
Use trays to collate collections on your coffee table. Trays are perfect for grouping a collection of your favourite decorative objects together, that can easily be removed when you need to create space. I use my tray for holding magazines, books or my collection of beautiful shells.
Add Something Green/Foliage
It’s amazing the difference adding some greenery to your display makes. Add some texture and colour with some faux greenery, fresh flowers or a lush green maidenhair fern.
Give your display some height by adding something tall. Whether it be a pot plant, candle or vase of flowers.
Add interest to your coffee table with a decorative objects. Use small decorative pieces to add on top of your books, magazines or to place in your tray. I’ve used plates, shells, candles and a collection of blue and white china.
