3 Ways to Style a Coffee Table (video)

There are so many different ways to style things.  If you don’t style often, it can seem a bit daunting sometimes trying to figure out what to put where.  Today I’m showing you three ways to style a coffee table.  All simple, all totally doable.

Don’t be afraid to mix things up in your home.  Try out one style for a few days, then change it and see which one sticks.  My front room coffee table is styled completely differently than my family room ottoman.

Have a wonderful rest of the week!  Halfway to Friday!

    It’s so amazing how the little things like coffee tables pull the entire room together, the whole look is a sum of all the parts. How many colors are too many for one room? My wife and I like having a relatively monochrome scheme, stone, granite, stainless steel, dark mahogany cabinets, clean lines, glass… but we’re afraid to throw more than one color in each room in the way of throw pillows or a splash in a painting, for fear it will overwhelm our whole look. I don’t think any of the rooms pictured look too cluttered, and while not in our particular style, I don’t actually notice the many differing colors clashing….

    Hi George, I just try to make sure there are one-two common colors that carry from room to room so there is a nice flow in the home. Hope that is helpful!
