How to: Coffee Table Accessories

I am taking it back to school with Design 101, my series of basic design tips to apply in your home! This week we are all about coffee table accessories. So sharpen your pencil, grab a composition book and a glass of something delicious and enjoy this series.

In summary, here are my 3 tips for a well-designed coffee tablescape:

  • Vary the height of your coffee table accessories. This will help your eye move around the room by creating a natural movement in the space.
  • Add some visual interest to your tablescape by opting for coffee table accessories with different textures, materials and finishes. Matte versus metallic, solids versus patterns and glass versus wood. Play around!
  • Incorporate a personal touch! Make it feel truly like home by finding pieces that have a personal connection such as a knick-knack with your initials or your wedding album.
