Curious how to style a coffee table? It definitely can be a challenge to creatively come up with a chic arrangement that represents you while also reflecting the vibe you want in your space. For me, I vote for a mix of things. Balancing my personal style with classic ideals.
5 steps is all you need to know to style a coffee table. Easy. (P.S. – try to include a tray. The way it effortlessly organizes your items is golden.)
With these 5 simple suggestions, you can style your coffee table in a cinch!
Flowers – fresh or fake… add that oomph of freshness to the look. Can’t afford fresh flowers every-single-day <#RealitiesOfLife>? Use amaze alternatives. Found gorgeous fake floral arrangement to do the trick! —> (linked at bottom of post! You’re welcome…)
Use interesting items (aka “funky”) from a local flea market or from vacation or an antique item from your fam. Adds a perfect balance of fun-funky-ness. Something for friends to ask, “what is thaaaat?” to get the conversation flowing. Confession: sometimes I have no clue what the item is… no big. Love that mystique.
The most love on my coffee table comes from my books. And why not? They give a hint into your style/personality/interests and add some dimension to the table. Maybe they are classics or just a new read. Whatever you choose, stick to only 3-4 (depending on their size) and stack them largest (on bottom) to smallest on top to keep it balanced. Remember: mix colorful covers or the same hues to catch the eye!
Candles = no-brainer. They look amazing…smell amazing… add amazing light to an evening. No better way to wind down than to light the candle(s) and let that glow enhance the vibe.
This is all about you. What grounds you? A framed picture? A large seashell you discovered on vacation? What about something you found in your grandmother’s basement that she had forgotten all about? Choose carefully – and choose something that makes YOU feel fab on the inside. I just chose a beautiful vintage glass perfume bottle from my grandmother.
