One of the easiest ways to add interest to your living room is to accessorize your coffee table.

I love a beautifully decorated coffee table but most of the time, mine is littered with papers and remotes and if you have babies or toddlers, it’s probably bare.

Because the coffee table must have many functions, it can be difficult to know what to put on it.

Let’s get inspired, shall we?

A good start is adding some coffee table books. These are easily picked up at thrift stores since it’s not really about the subject but more to add height.

Once you have the first layer down (the books) add some flowers or other organic element.

Use a tray on your coffee table. It can easily be moved to use the table for another function and it creates a hard surface perfect for an ottoman.

And last but not least, don’t forget the focal point! You will want one statement piece to stand out and this can be a large vase, candle or a sculpture.


Tell me, what do you like to display on your coffee table?
