Styling a fall coffee table is easy! Get all the tips and tricks you need to create a gorgeous neutral fall coffee table that can last all season.
One of the questions I get most from readers and friends is in regards to coffee table decorating. Most people want to do something stylish and fun, but they don’t know how to go about it.
So today I’m sharing a fall coffee table using neutrals, rather than the traditional fall colors. And I’ll be sharing my tips for easy coffee table styling – in any season!
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:
Books: (not only because I love them, and they’re beautiful, but also to elevate other items on the table).
Something natural: this could be a plant, a topiary, a vase of flowers, or even fruit. A green or natural item really adds texture and keeps it from looking too sterile.
A unique or interesting item: (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, make sure to choose some things that vary in height so that there is an interesting mix.
This fall coffee table couldn’t be simpler, while incorporating the neutral fall look I love so much. It has a touch of fall, but it’s not over the top.
