How to Style Your Coffee Table

April 17th, 2014

I’m back with another “how to style” post.

Today, I’m tackling your coffee table.  The key here is to layer.  Layer and layer intentionally.  I like to begin with a tray, to ground an area.  Within the tray, I place a small stack of books with some type of flower arrangement.  The arrangement here is a succulent.  My favorite is hydrangeas for a coffee table, hands down. From there I would add your favorite candle to the top of the book stack. Once the tray is complete, fill the remaining areas with something sculptural, like this fun shell from ZGallerie.  To top it off I placed one more large book with a pretty box on top.  Voila! There you have it. Here are some other great examples:

This coffee table is from Waiting on Martha.  I LOVE her styling here.  She is the master stylist.

Here are my beloved hydrangeas.

Pretty simple, right? Hopefully now you can tackle that coffee table.

Make sure to head over to the Zhush today! I’m starting a new series with her called Divine Details!
