Sometimes, an artfully arranged coffee table is all you need to make your home feel instantly more polished. Especially if your home is currently torn apart due to some painting projects, like mine is... I spent a few minutes styling our coffee table yesterday morning and came up with this fun black, gold, white and hot pink look.
My coffee table is the same size as the dining table we used in our previous apartment. With a large table like mine, it can be a little hard to figure out what to put where. But if you follow these 3 tips, you'll be styling your coffee table like a pro!
- Divide your coffee table into thirds or quadrants and go from there. Breaking it down into 3-4 smaller vignettes will help you tackle the large space without making it look cluttered.
- Add height with stacks of books and taller accessories. I used a few books that fit the color scheme, a ceramic pear and a cool teepee terrarium that I borrowed from Jamie's room. Candlesticks, vases, and taller sculptures would work just as well!
- Use trays to corral clutter and make a statement. I laid this tray across two quadrants and used smaller dishes to hold some snacks and the remote. The bold chevron pattern makes a stylish statement and really contrasts against the plain white table top. Tray chic!
