If you're looking for a quick and easy way to freshen up your living room, look no further than the coffee table. Using a few simple home accessories and a little creativity, you can accessorize your coffee table to look as lovely as the ones you admire in home design magazines.
Gather your items
Good items for accessorizing a coffee table include books, vases, figurines, plants, trays, fruit, candles, and decorative bowls. It's best to stick with a few items to avoid a cluttered look. A coffee table filled with a bunch of small figurines will look cluttered and can distract from the beauty you want to create.
Decorative home accessories often reflect the personality of the people who live in the home. For instance, if you're an antique collector you may want to choose a large coffee table book about antiques as the main element in your coffee table arrangement. Place an antique vase on the book and add some greenery to create a simple but elegant look.
Play with different arrangements
After you've gathered your items, take time to play around with various arrangements until you find one you like. Unused items can be used later to create different designs when you need a fresh look. Changing your coffee table arrangement is a fun way to showcase the arrival of holidays or a new season.
Using an odd number of elements will help you maintain a good balance in your arrangement. For instance, a stack of three books will look better than four. If you are using candles to create a coffee table centerpiece, a single candle will look better than two.
Use color wisely
If you want to add a pop of color to an arrangement, it's better to limit the amount of color to keep it from overwhelming the grouping. An orange or red floral arrangement will look attractive in a neutral grouping but would overwhelm a coffee table with colorful accessories. If you want to pull the room together, try adding one decorative accessory in the color of the living room drapes or the color of sofa accent pillows.
Create varying heights
Varying the heights of objects adds a good balance to a grouping. Again, an odd number of heights is preferable to an even number. A small stack of books, a medium-sized bowl of colorful fruit, and a tall candle grouped together will create pleasing eye appeal.
If you're looking for a fast and easy way to give your living room a new look, accessorizing your coffee table won't disappoint. You will be amazed at the difference a few well-arranged elements on the coffee table can make in freshening up the entire roomShare
