Hello everyone! I hope you all have had a great week and are ready to take on the weekend. Maybe it’s time for a change around your houses and you are redecorating, so hopefully this will give you some ideas!
You may remember that we did a post for Chairish showing how we would style an armoire.
It was so much fun to put together and imagine what it could look like! If you don’t remember, click here
to read that post. Well, we were asked to do another post, so of course we said yes!
This time we worked with a coffee table. We found this trunk that could function as a coffee table, and we loved it. It is a brassy color which would work really well when it comes to decorating. This could add some sparkle to your room!
But what do you put on your coffee table to make it look nice, but also be functional? I mean, your table could be your centerpiece of your living room, so why not make it look amazing! One of the first things I do is decide the theme. And, I love anything Parisian (this is a common known fact on this blog), so I went with a French theme. I started with this bowl from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I love the look of the bowl, and it can be filled with many different things. I decided that I would put pink and white beads in the bottom of the bowl and silk flowers to add some accents. Bowls can be filled with whatever you like, so it is up to you! Trays would be a good choice too. Trays can hold lots of things, but keep them contained and looking neat.
The next thing that I went with was some boxes to hold items in. This can be important when it comes to holding the precious TV remotes and maybe even some coasters. The boxes that I found are actually jewelry boxes. They have interchangeable bottoms so you can change them with your theme or color scheme. How cool is that! This works perfectly to hold the Fleur de Lis coasters and make sure they don’t all get separated.
And finally, I added an Eiffel Tower statue. This piece is to help add some height and interest to your decor, but it’s not too tall to get in the way. I also added a pink candle to make your room smell nice. This is important because your table will have decorations, but it won’t be too busy and take away from the beauty of the table.
Here is the style board again just to remind you how beautiful it is!
Just a couple more tips-use odd numbers when displaying things on tables and use varying heights. This add more interest and is pleasing to the eye. But most of all, have fun with it! Keep playing with it until it pleases you. It’s your own design!
I hope you enjoyed reading about my coffee table that I designed. If you want to check out any of the items that I put on this blog, click on the link by their pictures. We are so happy to have the opportunity to work with Chairish
again! Be sure to check out their website and tell them we said ‘Hello!’
