Coffee Table Styling

{all images via}

 I'm constantly looking for new accessories or books to add
to my coffee table setup. I must say, it has become quite the obsession! 
I really do love having stacks of books on my table...BUT for those who
don't like a lot of "stuff" on their table, a simple orchid or hydrangea
and a candle can be just the trick!

I love this decor post! These are some of my favorites of yours because I love peeking inside your home! Personally I love the idea of styling my coffee table but in reality I always seem to want it completely clear. So instead I set up a bunch of small tables in my living room to display little items. I love your selection of nick nacks!

I wish I could manage to do something so incredibly beautiful like that but my attempts always turn out to be flops! Still, I try!

Love your posts!

i FINALLY bought a Diptique candle yesterday - the $60 price tag killed me - but i'm IN LOVE! - i'm on the constant pursuit of the 'perfect' coffee table layout - it's 'getting' there!

Oh my goodness, I LOVE fresh flowers! Unfortunately, so does my cat.. and flowers don't look NEARLY as pretty once a cat has chewed on them. Such a shame!

I love the first picture! Right now there is nothing on mine because my baby would destroy it. We even have padded edges put on the side of the table. Not cute.

Gorgeous ideas, Nicole! I especially love the urchin atop books. I had to forego a coffee table (the kids constantly put their feet on it!) So I have a bench that the top flips over to trays instead. Alas, no coffee table styling for me :( But, I could do the bookcase!

I love the crisp white with pops of color. So modern! Now I want to redo my living room!

Tables make such an impact even in a small space.
