Honestly, I’d never quite understood the purpose of coffee tables. I don’t like how low they are, I seem to always be banging my leg on them, and I don’t drink much coffee. Plus, I’ve never really known what to put on them. I can style a bookshelf like a pro with books and knick-knacks, but coffee tables leave me completely dumbfounded. That’s why I love this post by Kim at Tidbits and Twine. Here are some of her ideas for making your coffee table a beautiful part of your living room:
-Try putting things in all four corners. This is great if you prefer a busier look and have lots of decorative elements you want to use.
-Or, try a contained grouping. Place your decorative items on a serving tray in the center of the table.
-Keep it sweet and simple. Sometimes, less is more. A simple vase of flowers can work wonders.
-Group things with varying heights and textures.
