coffee table styling

Needed/ great books, objects, votives, flowers or greenery, something quirky..

I love the texture of the basket against the hard finish of the coffee table-

So tonal and so lovely, stacks of books in black and white-

A gorgeous hint of pink with a fabulous hint of hot pink! Mercury glass and candle light make this such a pretty spot-


Great doses of color in the book covers, fresh flowers and candle light are a pretty finish to this glass topped piece-

Books, books and books-

and such a pretty little moment happening on this mirrored piece, I love the hint of purple-
