All eyes on the chic coffee table!

One of the simplest ways to bring the chic to your living room (either for styling for sale or just for yourself) is to decorate your coffee table. Usually the coffee / sofa table it’s the focal point of your room, it brings the attention while entering  and it’s easier than you would think to bring it to the next level! All you need is collection of decoration accessories (books, candles or flowers etc.) – you can arrange objects into vignettes (groups of objects) and they will definitely create the cozy mood with a touch of luxury!

Below I am listing some tips on how to create a coffee table vignette:

  1. If you are styling your home for sale, don’t use any personal decorations. If possible invest in new, small accessories in neutral colors. You can find chip small décor details e.g in Ikea.
  2. The colors should support the palette you have in the room.
  3. Use odd numbers of accessories.
  4. Fresh flowers are always a good ideaJ
  5. Less is more 🙂 – don’t overdo it with the amount and type of objects.
  6. Use books as base for décor accessories.
