I wrote a while back about how to style a coffee table and that post gives some tips and pointers on styling. This post is just to show you how I played around with my coffee table one afternoon. I find that things don't remain static in my house and I'm constantly moving things around. This change was predicated on this amazing Danish hand blown glass vase I found at the Elkhorn Flea Market last month and a wooden box so I could hide away my television remote.
The round tray returned to the table because it's a great way to corral all the wee things I have.
I really wanted this tall ceramic vase to work here, but it's a bit too tall and a bit too white so the plant is returned to the table.
I put the plant on top of the books, but there wasn't enough contrast and so I swapped my vintage camera with it.
The box was a little low and needed the books to give it some height.
I'm liking this, but the box feels a bit like it blocks the flow on the table. Therefore I swapped them.
And voila! I also put some coasters on top of the box because people better be using coasters on my wood table!! Feel free to play with your styling. I get bored with my decor and just switching up the small things makes it feel fresh and new.
