One of the most important things to consider when decorating a Center Table in a living room is the overall feel of your living room, including the colour palette and decor style of the rest of your living space. Do you love a cosy living room? Are you drawn to a modern look, with clean lines? Or do you prefer something in between? Knowing this will help you choose the type of decorative items to place on your living room table. Also, when choosing decorative objects for your Center Table, take into account how you plan to use the table. A coffee table might be used to display decorative items and books, to hold drinks and remote controls, as a footrest, as a dining table, as additional storage space, or as a place to entertain, play games, and do puzzles.
1. Start With Books
Coffee table books are typically the first things interior designers reach for when styling a space. A stack of design books, topped with a crystal, a strand of beads, or a small box or bowl, is the perfect way to decorate a center table – or any surface that needs a little something. Not only do coffee table books elevate your decor, but they also offer a great conversation piece and give your guests something to look at when they visit your home.
Walk around your house and gather items such as sculptural objects, trays, lidded boxes, baskets, glass vases, accent pieces, mementoes from your travels, stoneware, pottery, bottles, and bowls. Grab anything that has visual interest and makes you happy. To help create your desired mood or feeling, remember to include things that are both beautiful and sentimental and reflect your personal style.
