how to style up your coffee table

Your coffee table is a centerpiece in your main living space and how you style it can completely change the look of the overall room. And what is on it can also completely change  the function of the table. You do not  want it to be too perfect or cluttered. What is important, is to keep the items that you place on it to scale and that there is a balance  between the items.

You do not want a giant coffee table book paired with a tiny scented candle.
Or a large floral arrangement next to a small tray. Finding the right balance between items are important.

Layers, details, and texture

Start with a blank canvas, ie. white sheets because it will provide a place where your eye can rest once you start layering on colour, prints, and patterns.

Adding layers is key to having a styled bed that looks inviting and comfortable. Opt for neutrals and cozy textures, for a homely feel and look  or if you like things a bit more bold play with patterns and colours to create some depth and contrast. 

Pillow Game

Always match your larger shams to the duvet and place those behind, your day to day pillows Because they tend to be bigger and fill the space closest to the headboard really well. When it comes to throw pillows there’s no perfect number. But the easiest is to stick with 3 and the best part is, they do not all  3 have to look the same. Try 2 that match in size and color with 1 smaller one in front or, even one long lumbar cushion. There is no right or wrong so mix it up and  show off your personality.
