How To Style A Coffee Table – A coffee table is one of those pieces of furniture that can really make or break a room, and how you style it is just as important. A beautifully designed coffee table can really help tie your family room together and can make your home look cosy, warm and inviting. Coffee tables are usually a low table that sits under your sofa and provides a comfortable table support for your guests to place their drinks or anything else they may have. For this reason, it is a good idea to have a good balance between how you style it and its functionality. So today I’m going to share my top tips on HOW TO STYLE A COFFEE TABLE that’s realistic, practical with kids, and instagram-worthy all at the same time.

Keeping the decor balanced is so crucial when decorating everything in your home. One of the first things I like to do is establish a point of contact. This is quite important to begin with as it helps to figure out where the eye naturally lands when entering the room.
The other thing I like to do is make sure I balance bold pieces. I usually like to keep my decor pretty neutral and timeless by using classic ornaments, but I like to throw in some bold decor pieces here and there. However, I make sure not to clump them together, instead I place them strategically on the coffee table, and add some neutral pieces around them. Finally, focusing on visual symmetry or sometimes asymmetry. Creating visual pairs with your decorative items can really help make the process easier and creates nice visual interest.

Using trays like this $29 to decorate your coffee table is such a simple and easy way to keep your table stylish and can really help round out the space, instead of placing a couple of random items on the table.

There are countless ways you can style a tile in your living room, and this is something you can have fun with and move around. One of my favorite things to do is put a flower arrangement in a vase and place it inside the tray, and then I add another vase to create visual symmetry. You can also add your decorative items inside the tray and pair it with some functional items that you will also use. Love this stone tray from H&M, only $24
When buying new home decor pieces, I always try to stick to classic pieces that I know will be timeless, meaning they will never go out of style and last for years! My first tip that I personally do is, stick to neutrals. This is the easiest way to ensure you get value for money. I love neutrals because it gives a light fresh clean feel to any room. Some classic items I love to use are coffee table books, statues, vases, neutral decorative items. I try to stay away from home decor that is “trendy” because we all know that trends don’t last very long. But if it’s something you absolutely LOVE, get it!
Spring Coffee Table Styling With A Diy Bulb Arrangement
While I love to stick to neutrals when it comes to home decor as my personal taste, I really love to throw in some color, especially during the summer and spring! Throwing in some subtle colors adds character and some visual interest. One of the easiest ways to do this is to add a flower arrangement to a vase and center it on your coffee table. It’s so simple and subtle, adds some color and will look pleasing to the eyes. You can also use a tray that has some color too, and mix in your neutral decorative items to balance everything out. If trays aren’t your thing, you can choose to use a bowl and add some decorative beads like these sea glass beads.
Finally, use coffee table books. There are so many great options out there right now, from Amber Interiors to Dior, so many great ones! There are also so many different ways to style them, which I think is why they are my favorite. You can stack some on top of each other if you have several coffee table books. Maybe even add your flower arrangement, a decorative object or even a bowl on top of your coffee table books.
I also love this Restoration House Book. You can also place these books next to a tray or bowl, add some decorative beads on top. There are so many endless options like a simple decorative candle on top. If you plan to stack coffee table books, try using different sizes to create visual asymmetry and will be eye-catching.

How To Style A Coffee Table
A coffee table isn’t the easiest thing to decorate (at least for me) but thankfully many principles apply to styling bookshelves or sweet corners of your house, even to styling coffee tables – so you can build on what you already have Learned.

If your coffee table styling doesn’t look quite right, it’s probably because your coffee table decorations aren’t balanced. And by that I mean you either have a lot of small knick-knacks or you have a few large items that look too heavy and cumbersome. Make sure your coffee table accessories are balanced by using a mix of items in different sizes and grouping similar items together.
Getting your coffee table accessories right is the hardest part of styling a coffee table, so don’t beat yourself up if you struggle with this, K?!

It’s always important to think about scale, color and height when choosing your coffee table decorations, but you can be a little more adventurous with the height (because it adds a little more interest).
