Wide open spaces... what do you do with them?
I'm not a fan of clutter, but I also like beautiful accessories.
So, how do you decorate a coffee table without making it look cluttered?
TRAY | keep it contained on a tray
BIG & SMALL | a few big pieces cut down on clutter
MIX IT UP | create texture by mixing silver, pottery, glass, wood, and books
HEIGHT | orchids are great for adding height but not blocking the view,
and they are beautiful!
COLOR | coffee tables are the perfect place to add pops of color with books,
flowers, and other odds and ends
STACK IT UP | don't fan out your magazines and books, but neatly stack them and top them off with a fun bowl, shell, or something quirky and personal
GROUPS | Grouping books and objects together makes tabletops look intentional and not an after thought
MONOCHROME | decorating with one color simplifies any look
FLOWERS | common theme in pictures above: flowers! they are the easiest way to make ANY space beautiful. there is no simpler pleasure than fresh flowers - love, love, love
