Carly here!

Elsie Larson of A Beautiful Mess (a lifestyle blog) had the most resourceful post last week on styling a coffee table three ways. She is so creative, and what I loved about it was the bulk of the look (“the coffee table”) remained the same. It goes to show that a few details on top can really make a big difference in the appearance (and even function!) of your space. Since I tend to stick with the same coffee table (actually, I always stick with the same coffee table…hmm, going on 7 years now), this post was a great resource for me on changing up my always-the-same table.


Styling a Coffee Table 3 Ways

I love changing up my space with books and candles, flowers and collections. So welcome to my world…let’s geek out together, OK?

1. The “Everyday” Look

For everyday life I don’t want my coffee table to be super crowded. I want to keep it pretty simple to leave room for, you know—coffee! But that doesn’t mean it has to be boring.

My favorite things to display are a couple of interesting books for guests to thumb through, my all-time favorite candle and my instant camera for random snapshots.

I don’t keep fresh flowers in my home at all times, so a little succulent does the job! This is a good, easygoing style for everyday life. It’s put together, but not too fussy.

2. The “Friend Coming Over” Look

One time I went over to my friend’s home for a quick meeting and she had prepared a French press and a little snack for us. It was such a simple little thing, but it left an impression on me. I remember thinking I wanted my house to feel exactly that inviting.

Well here’s a cozy styling idea for just that occasion. When you have friend coming over to chat, create a little snack and some coffee or tea to share.

Fresh flowers are a fun option for weekends when we have guests, which is pretty often around our home. I like roses because they last for a week or more. And, side note—isn’t that tea kettle adorable?
