Hi Everyone! If you are joining me from Kathleen at Lindsay Hill Interiors, welcome! And if you’re a regular reader, we’ve got something special for you this week! I’m joining with a group of amazing bloggers to bring you a monthly series on styling your coffee table. We wanted to do something consistent on a monthly basis that related to home decor, and we all agreed that one of the questions we get most from readers, as well as from friends is, “How should I style my coffee table?” Most people want to do something stylish and fun, but they don’t know how to go about it. So we decided to have a series on coffee table styling! This is something almost every one has, and something that a lot of people like to change up seasonally, as well. So, every month our group of 15 bloggers will bring you a coffee table styling post on the 15th of the month. You can read each of our posts on our blogs by linking from here, as well as see some of our photos on each of our Instagram accounts. Welcome to the Styling a Coffee Table Blog Hop, hosted by Janine of Happy Happy Nester!
One of the reasons the coffee table is a favorite to decorate is it’s a fairly large, flat surface with lots of room for styling and secondly, (at least for me) it’s one of the first things people see when they come into my home as my front door opens to a view of the living room. Here are a few of the items I like to incorporate:
Something unique or interesting: (preferably vintage, but it can be anything that is special to you, or even something with an interesting shape. The idea is for it to be something that not everyone has.)
Other options: trinkets from travels, candles, cute boxes or containers, trays (great for corraling other items), or bowls.
Of course, not all of these absolutely have to be on every table. I don’t believe in hard and fast rules, especially with holiday decorating, but it is a general guideline to get you started. Also, try to choose some things that vary in height so that there is an interesting mix. Today I did a pretty simple fall inspired coffee table. It has a touch of fall, but it’s not over the top. Just a subtle nod to the season….
|I used a mixed bouquet I picked up at the grocery store that had some fall color in it, and then added some of the hydrangeas from my garden that were turning a beautiful mix of deep pinks and greens.|
|I added one of my favorite fall candles, Pumpkin by Linnea’s Lights. You can read about my Five Favorite Pumpkin candles in this post!|
|I also have an acorn that I purchased this year from Home Goods, and a pair vintage pheasants that add a unique and seasonal touch.|
|And of course, I had to add some of my favorite tiny white pumpkins!|
|Flowers and pumpkins for natural/green items, books, vintage pheasants for interest and uniqueness, as well as a couple of seasonal items, the acorn and the pumpkins again, and in the “other” category, the candle. And any of these items can be changed out as frequently as you want. I will definitely change it up for Thanksgiving at the beginning of next month!|
Here are a few items I found if you are looking to do a similar table. Some of my items are available, but some are vintage or discontinued so in that case, I’ve included similar items.(*Please note I’ve included some affiliate links for your convenience.)
