Coffee table inspiration


Coffee table styling is one of my favorite parts of designing a living room. I am perpetually on the lookout for the next best styling, next amazing idea, another gorgeous item to add to the mix. And yet, I'm still quite unhappy with our own coffee table. It still feels like there's something missing, but I can' seem to put my finger on the issue. That's why I've been pinning inspiring images like crazy. I really hope they help me to find my own perfect styling that I'll be able to share with you! Here are my favorites and the best elements they showcase:


Hydrangeas, matchboxes, hot pink and stacks of coffee table books.


Flowering branches, high candles and candlesticks, glamorous coffee books about exceptional women.


Two separate coffee tables, pink flowers and candles


Gold playing cards, pink matchbox, Jo Malone, Chanel and Women of Consequence books.


Vogue, pink flowers and white candles

  31. Lovely pictures and example of chic, classic, elegant looks... I used to have a coffee table like that! That was B.K. (before kids). Now my table has been transformed into a chic race track for mini cars, dressing room space for dollies and all around catch all for toys running rampant around our living room! Thanks for posting these gorgeous pics so I can be reminded that my reality is a bit skewed at the moment (but I love it nonetheless)...
