Decorative Box For Coffee Table – I’ve talked many times about decorating with things you love around your home, upcycling and redecorating. Today’s post is about 3 ways to style a coffee table or ottoman. I had fun experimenting with this, using many of my favorites.
I am constantly looking for new and different ways to change things around our house. It’s like a studio here – I shoot for websites regularly, always bring, and turn different ‘props’ for different stories. My family is used to it now!

Recently I shared different ways to style a video game table – it’s a post full of styles I think you’ll like.

When I’m decorating, I’ll always use a new accessory I’ve picked up and add it to the mix, or add a new design book. Truth be told, I tend to stick to my decorating methods, and sometimes if I love something too much, I won’t change much.
There are many ways you can bring your personality to your home. Read on for tips for coffee table style that speaks to who you are.
Blue and white is one of my favorites as you all know and I can’t get enough.

Especially with the plethora available on the market right now – I am constantly looking for new pieces to add to my collection.
It’s so funny that I haven’t used it as a group on our ottoman until now. But I can tell you, I LOVE this look.
I could live in a blue and white house! Since we are in the summer season, what is the best plan to use?

Most of my pieces I’ve picked up here and there, some thrift stores, some ‘borrowed’ from my mom’s collection, many I’ve picked up in Chinatown, and others from various retailers like HomeSense (or HomeGoods), Pier 1 Imports, or Bombay Company.
To add dimension and interest and to play up the spring vibe, I added some coral, sand dollars and shells.
Not everyone collects blue and white, or has enough space to put together like this, but the idea is that the style of the coffee table like this is to show a monochromatic collection – a group of accessories and vases in one color .

Take a look around your home and gather things that are in the same color family – even blue and green can work for this look, as they are both beautiful colors.
Or, you might want to stick to a neutral palette if you have some bright colors around your home.
Whether it is one color, two or three, it is important to combine things that are similar to this look.

Then add in three or four other things to break it up – like I have coral and other accessories.
Make sure that if you are lighting candles like this, don’t leave them unattended, or even think about lighting them with children or pets around!
Honestly though, this look is easy to pull off and can work any time of the year.

The best part, it looks great when the candles are not lit. Keep the light on for the evening hours only.
Be creative and use things you have around…mason jars, glass jars – even wine glasses with tea lights can work for this look.
Attach them with long candlesticks – I used different metals mixed together, but you can use any kind you like.

Small, small selections are key to this look. If you don’t have any, use a small soccer ball or juice glass – I know you all have these!
I don’t have time to think again and of course, I’m wearing a red t-shirt… try to ignore it if you can!
My last look at how to style a coffee table or ottoman is with your favorite items put together.

I had to use blue and white here, so I started this look with a couple of my new pieces, like a bowl and a ginger jar.
Bowls, agate books, decorative lacquer boxes and small dishes are all things I like to collect and have in abundance.
Arranging them on top of a stack of beautiful books (design and decorative books in my case) is a fail-safe way to show off your beauty.

I use this styling trick all over our house and it’s the easiest way to show off the things you love.
If you don’t have many books, you can use magazines to start – fashion magazines, fashion magazines or National Geographic will make an interesting statement with these beautiful yellows.
Try to keep the look neat and use thick magazines that are bound like a book – not the folded type!

I arranged these dots in a regular grid-like pattern, and covered the space as much as possible for a strong visual effect.
You can play with the color palette – mine uses black and white, different tones of blue and some green, with a touch of brown – all of which are neutral.
The idea is to create an environment to ‘collect’ your favorite things. Make sure when putting things together, you have a complementary color palette, to avoid look alike.

These boxes are completely handmade and are handcrafted by skilled artisans in India. The process starts with building a wooden frame for the box. Bone chips, which are naturally found as samples, are carefully cut into delicate shapes by many artisans. These chips are glued in various complicated patterns onto the resin, all by hand. Finally the box is polished and polished to bring out the fine detail and beauty of the inlay work.

I swear you could give your baby a million colorful toys with all the bells and whistles, but really, the best toys always end up being car keys, cardboard boxes, and, in our case, remote control. Go figure.
But then I had the idea of making a useful place to keep it out of sight and thought, while making it nice and easy for us all the time. (Hey, that rhymed!)
I always find myself stumbling over cigar boxes and jewelry boxes while I eat, so I knew it would be the perfect solution for the remote control on our table.

Luckily, I still had some marble contact paper left over from the coffee table earlier, so this cost me about $4.
1. Roll out your contact paper first, decorative side down, and place the cigar box in the center of the paper with enough paper on each side of the box to allow for height.

3. Draw a diagonal line in each corner. Then draw a vertical line at an angle and a horizontal line joining up with the diagonal line (shown above).
6. Carefully peel back one side of the contact paper (about 1/3 of the way) and place the box on the paper so it stays.
