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?
