Decorating the Coffee Table
Decorating the coffee table can be a fun and creative way to add a unique touch to your living room. Whether displaying artwork, accent pieces, or simply rearranging the objects on the surface, there are a variety of ways to spruce up the coffee table. Here are a few tips to help you get started:
Choose a Focal Point
Decide if the room should focus on a large centerpiece, or should the coffee table capture a more simplistic aesthetic? Whether it is a sculpture or a large flower vase, the focal point should be placed in the center of the table. From there, work around the object to create a unique design.
Create Functional Pieces
Use items that are both decorative and functional, such as coasters and trays. Trays are especially helpful to provide additional surface space, while at the same time keeping small items from falling off the table.
Pick the Perfect Accents
Add vibrant colors to your coffee table with plants, books, and objects. For example by adding a small succulent and some patterned books, your table will instantly stand out. You can also use candles, art, and even natural elements such as stones and crystals.
Organize What You Have
Arrange the objects you chose in a manner that speaks to you. Group objects to create visual interest that stands out against a white or plain wall. To ensure balance and harmony, place them in odd numbers and layout the objects on different levels. Allow the size and shape to work in your favor while creating symmetry.
The Finishing Touch
The space is almost complete, but you can also add finishing touches like:
- Throw Pillows
- Painted Rocks
- Flowers & Foliage
- Lit Candles
Decorating the coffee table can be a fun and creative project to embark on, allowing you to discover your interior design style. Whether you’re going for a modern, classic, or eclectic vibe, remember to choose items that represent who you are and bring joy. Happy decorating!
