How to Style a Console

April 4th, 2014

I’ve received several questions on how to style.

I’m thinking of making this a series.

For now, let’s start with a console.

Start with a large scale mirror or art piece that is around 8″ smaller than the width on your console.

From there, add a pretty lamp for light (and here a punch of color).

Then feel free to layer artwork.  This piece shown is leaning.

From there add books, a pretty candle holder and orchid for that ever so “effortless” styling look.

If your console is open below, add further dimension by placing two ottomans or pretty storage baskets beneath.


If you’re trying to style pieces in your home, learn the value of editing.  Always take a step back and look at the whole picture.

Happy Friday!

    Great information and a round mirror is a favorite of ours over a console…love the poufs underneath!! Thrilled to find and follow your blog!

  2. I think this should be a series. Great tips here. I have to tell you that I have come to read your posts many times and could never figure out how to comment. I just figured it out!
