Decorate a Coffee Table with Style
Whether your coffee table is a DIY project thrift store find, a pair of Ikea end tables, or the statement piece you splurged on, it’s worth taking the time to decorate and style like you would any other area of your home.
Start with a Tray
Large coffee tables “don’t feel so massive when you layer on a tray. It breaks up the surface.
Vary the Height
It makes for an inviting focal point, and draws you into a room to have a look. Be sure to never exceed the height of the sofa.
Add Something Organic
When we are considering how to decorate a coffee table in a vacant property, we wont use any real plant material. But we do use silk plants, and faux fruit.
Using books to style your coffee table isn’t exactly original, but nothing else speaks to a target buyer quite so quickly. If the house has a beautiful yard, you want great garden books. If there’s land for horses, a book of horses underscores the point; the same with boating and /or fishing if there’s a river or lake nearby or use a few large, pretty art books to make a stack, and top it off with something decorative.
Strive For Balance
The easiest way to balance is to have matching lamps on the side tables and a few simple, larger items on the coffee table. Artfully arranged, anything can become a thing of beauty.
