Coffee Table Styling

Are you a knick-knack person? Do you like tchotchkes? I do! I use my knick-knacks to add a flair to tables, bookshelves, etc. I use them as something extra or finishing touches.

I feel like your coffee table just screams for little decorative extras. Why not? I don’t drink coffee so I have no other choice. JK. The coffee table is such a versatile piece and often times it’s the center piece of a room, so have a little fun with it.

You can go in many different directions with coffee table styling depending on the fashion or the function of the room. This is were knick-knacks or tchotchkes come in. You can add these in to make something functional look fabulous.

Here are a few examples of different styles and pieces that create different looks.

As you can see you have quite a few options to mix and match I incorporated pictures, flowers, and books. You can add or take away just depends on your preference or the aesthetic of the room. You can have fun with color or stick to a theme.

Live it. Love it. Style it.

Project Bar Cart

I’ve been working on this project for quite some time and I’m still not done  but I wanted to share my progress!

I’m not really a drinker but I like the idea of a bar cart. For me it’s more about fashion rather than function (as are most things in my life lol).

I’ve been buying a few things here and there for my bar cart. I have a few glasses, cute paper straws, a tray, etc. but no actual bar cart.

The latest addition to my cart-less bar cart are decanters!  I was shopping in an antique store where I found three gorgeous vintage crystal decanters. I bought all three for 20 bucks!

I decided to take the bits and pieces I have collected so far and do a faux bar cart styling.

I have a few more pieces but I’m on the search for the perfect bar cart. I would like something with a least two levels and with gold accents.

What do you think so far?

Live it. Love it. Style it.

Sofa Style

Often times the biggest piece in your living room is the sofa and it draws the most attention in the room as well. So make it look good! I styled my sofa a couple of different ways so you can get a feel for all the different looks you can do with your own sofa.

What you will need:

pillows and blankets

First up: Monochromatic

My sofa is gray so I incorporated silvers, grays, and gray toned beige.

Next up: Oversized Pillows

Make your sofa super comfy with oversized pillows!

Lastly: Color and Texture

With a neutral sofa I try to have fun with color and adding texture to anything is my jam! I added fun colors and shapes with the pillows and some texture through the patterns and fur blanket.

Last thoughts:

Remember your space is what you make it! Whether you want cozy, inviting, fun, happy, or relaxing you can achieve any look with a few pieces! Don’t be afraid to have fun and take some risks with color and patterns!

Live it. Love it. Style it.
