Spring Coffee Table Decor

Today we’re talking coffee tables.  Ours is a hard working piece of furniture.  It sits smack dab in the middle of the Living Room and holds everything from magazines and books to piles of laundry and remote controls.  It’s  a nice grounding point for furniture to group around (and a great place to perch our feet!).

Why then, is it so hard to figure out how to make it pretty?  I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for new ways to arrange things on the top…and yet be practical, too.

Once again, I went to Pinterest for some inspiration.  My eyes landed on this pretty arrangement:

Although I knew I didn’t have exactly the same items, I thought I’d use it as a jumping off point.  This is what I came up with:

In studying the inspiration picture closely, I saw a number of different elements working together:

  • a tray
  • varying heights (a stack of old books helps do that)
  • natural elements
  • smooth and rough textures

I’ve also noticed a bit of greenery adds lots of life to a vignette.  I’ve given up on the real stuff…but the fake stuff doesn’t look too bad (and is a much better investment for me!)

This little coffee table arrangement was the start of a new Spring look in the Living Room.  I’ll be back later to show the whole room.

(Do you leave room for your feet on the coffee table too??;))

  1. Hi Rita
    I love your display! Where did you get the Artichoke? You give me so much inspiration to try replicating yours. Thank you

    1. Hi Rene, Thanks for your sweet comment. Where did I get the artichoke? Oh dear…it was so long ago I don’t even remember!! I think it was on clearance somewhere like Micheals or Walmart. My sister and I have a joke about artichokes, so I always laugh when I see one…:)
