Do you ever look in home magazines/online & see beautifully accessorized coffee tables &
wish that you had the skills to accomplish that with your own table?
Well, all you need are THREE items to create a beautifully styled coffee table.
I am keeping it BASIC here...take a look!
So my drawings may not be the best, but you get the point right??
1----A Floral/Branch Arrangement. This element gives you height. Pick a container for your arrangement that has curves to offset the square & straight lines of the books (mentioned below). A hurricane with a large candle inside, or 3 candlesticks could also work, but personally I prefer something organic.
2--- Three stacked books. Pick three nice looking books from your home collection. If you don't have any, a thrift store is a great place to find large, inexpensive books.
3--- A small, intriguing item to place on top of books. My drawing is suppose to portray coral. (What? you couldn't tell that by my awesome drawing??) This could be a small sculpture, candle, sphere, clock, etc. etc. Make sure the item is a different shape from the books - so don't pick something square or rectangle.
(You can always add more items to your table - don't feel limited. I'm just keeping this post as simple & basic as I can!)
Okay, that is it! I swear, follow these guidelines and anyone that comes to your home will think you know what your are talking about when it comes to styling a coffee table.
