Coffee Table Styling: Make Over your Coffee Table with these Helpful Tips

how to style a coffee table

Since you all know I am constantly re-arranging things around here 😉  I thought I’d share my latest coffee table styling with you! 🙂  I found the CUTEST bathing beauty figurines at HomeGoods a week or so ago, and knew that they would make the perfect addition to my summer coffee table make-over.  I added a few other summery touches… some of my favorite travel books, a wood tray-reminiscent of drift wood, some shells in a pretty gold bowl,  some hydrangeas in a pretty bowl turned vase, and then my little bathing beauty. 🙂

We don’t have a super huge family room, and our square coffee table takes up most of the floor space, but coffee tables don’t feel so massive when you layer on a tray and gather other design elements in groups.  It helps break up the surface.  When you artfully arrange your favorite items, they can become something beautiful all together.

I added a few personal touches, like one of my favorite vintage cameras that I always use to represent my love of photography, a family picture in a cute little frame I found at HomeGoods, and some of my favorite design books.  I love to add antique items when I decorate…it adds personality and history to a space.  A tip I love is to mix items that you already have from other rooms into new rooms to re-vamp a different spot in your home… it can really help save on cost.  Something you’re tired of looking at in your bedroom may come to life again when added to a new grouping of elements on your mantel or coffee table.

I hope you’re feeling inspired to try your hand at coffee table styling and remix your space.
