Coffee table styling ideas
Having said this before, we should never put pressure on ourselves to live our lives to the standards set by the perfectly curated interior design magazines and social media. But we can use them as an inspiration to create a space that reflects who we are. By taking the ideas and creatively making them our own. Everyone has their unique perspective of life and there is a creative part to each and every one of us whether we choose to believe it or not.
There is no one rule to decorating a coffee table. You can make your rules as you experiment and make the styling your own. You do not have to meet someone else standards, except for what makes you happy.
A Coffee table takes a prominent part of your living room and getting the styling right is sure to have an impact on your living room aesthetics. So here are a few coffee table styling ideas that you can experiment with to create your desired style.
A coffee table can act as the focal point of your living room. You could go for a statement piece that harmoniously fits within your room’s decor.
Alternatively you could use bold eye catching accessories to style a simple coffee table. For example you could use a bold textured vase to create a centrepiece feel. Glass coffee table is a good option if you plan to have several accessories on board.
Create a balance with texture adding soft textured items for a modern feel or textured rustic pieces to create a rustic chic feel.
Alternatively you could play around with heights, something tall, something short. This could be decorative vases or attractive sculptures or books. The key is to try and create a perfect fusion of different elements and still leave your coffee table functional.
You could create a beautifully coordinated arrangement of your treasures sentimental. To create a style that reflects your personality with items that you love. This will help to make your decor personalised, individual and meaningful to you and your loved ones.
Sentimental items help to ensure that there is a deeper meaning to your home styling than what meets the eye. Using your treasured items is also a way to include part of your story into your styling. Thereby creating a unique feel and meaning to how your home looks.
Sometimes to make the table less scattered you can add a small tray that you can use to hold random everyday life accessories such as keys, coins or coffee mug. After a long day of work the last thing I want to think of is making sure I put my key in the right place. Having a small tray on the table is an easy and efficient way to make the table look nice and remains functional at the same time. You can play around by having a small tray within a big tray to create a cohesive symmetry of elements.
If for some reason you are not sure what kind of accessories you can use to accent your coffee table with. Go minimal and over time you will find something that inspires you. Something personal and sentimental that you can place on your coffee table and feels right. Remember you are making the rules, do not bound yourself to anyone else’s standards. If it sparks joy then you know it’s right.
