Tips on how to accessorize your coffee table:
Feel like something is missing in your living room? Even though you’ve just bought your idea of the perfect coffee table? Accessorizing might just be the answer you’re looking for.
1) Make sure you have items of different heights next to each other.
Keeping everything on the same level makes your space boring. Spice it up by adding different heights. For example, you could have a small stack of interior design magazines, a medium sized candle, and a high pink or white orchid.
2) The rule of 3s
Divide your coffee table in 3 sections, like a grid, and organize it that way. Put one decorative piece on each “grid” section. You don’t want to over clutter your table, as it’ll just look like you need to tidy up.
Try going with a low maintenance plant or flower. Adding greenery to a room can change the design quite drastically! If you think that you wouldn’t be able to take care of the plant and water it, then opt for a fake one. Most of the time, people won’t know the difference.
4) Use a tray
Put a tray on your coffee table with a magazine, a candle, or other knick knacks on top. It spices up the whole table! Also, it’s easily removable if you have company and need the space for something else. Consider doing this especially if your coffee table is glass, as a simple tray can add symmetry to a free-form table.
Don’t go overboard with your design. Beauty lies in simplicity.
