Hello, hello! It has been a long, rainy afternoon today but the kids were back in school and I enjoyed some fantastic sushi with my husband. Finally. (We have been on a search since we’ve moved here.) The weekend is just around the corner so let’s start it off with a bang! We are on day 3 of Love Your Space Challenge and our living spaces are slowly transforming. Are you ready to get started? No moving heavy furniture or putting holes in the walls this time, I promise. 😉

Love Your Space Challenge #3
Style your coffee table!
Doesn’t that sound exciting? I just love a well styled table. Let me give you a couple of ideas and tips to help you get started.
Option 1: Keep it simple. A tray with a few items of various heights and a stack of books. Easy peasy. (If you don’t have a tray, consider using a plate charger or serving dish.)
Option 2: For larger tables, divide it into 4 or 6 sections with stacked books and/or trays and embellish each section with little trinkets on top. via
Option 3: If you don’t have a lot of pretty books to display or would like to add more practical items like tissue and remotes, you can use a few magazines and a dish, basket, or tray to corral your other items. Make sure to add a couple of your favorite things to give the vignette more personality and style.
My outcome: I already had two identical trays for the top of my coffee table so I added a tall element with candle sticks on one side and a shorter stack of books topped with a lotus tea candle holder and sea shell on the other side. A couple of pocket poetry books and our bowl from Costa Rica which displays a few collected items from outside balances out the negative space.
I hope these have inspired you to style your coffee table! Please post your pictures on Facebook so I can see what you are doing. =)
