"I love striking a balance between feminine and minimalism, so having some element of fresh prettiness (flowers or an exotic tropical leaf) with other natural elements like marble or wood makes me feel right at home."
“I believe that a space should speak of its people. My decor is eclectic, comprised of family heirlooms, vintage treasures and other pieces that make me feel something. The coffee table itself is one of my most treasured decor items; it belonged to my grandmother, who epitomized chic, and I remember as a young girl thinking how glamorous this table was.
"Ambient lighting is a must for a well-designed space, and my coffee table is never complete without a grouping of beautiful candles. Natural crystals are another item that are an essential part of my decor; on my coffee table, I have an assortment of tangerine quartz, clear quartz and amethyst paired with a few vintage brass meditation altar pieces, all housed within an antique Indian pink marble dish.
"Although not a part of my tabletop decor, my Moroccan poufs are a definite must around my coffee table. Perfect for intimate gatherings (and kids!) the poufs tuck discreetly under the edges of the table and can be pulled out whenever extra seating is required. I picked up my poufs while travelling Morocco, but identical ones can be found at The Cross Decor & Design.”
"Fresh flowers are a must on my coffee table and I love switching up the type of bloom with each season. I also keep either a candle or some of my favourite scents to quickly fill the room with a sweet aroma—and, of course, a fashion mag for some light reading"
"My coffee table is one of my favourite areas in my home to style, but it can be a challenge at times too. I like to keep my accessories balanced with statement books, coasters, a candle and fresh flowers when I can. Creating a coffee table vignette that's both functional and beautiful is the perfect way to create a focal point in your room."
"My tufted ottoman is the centre of our living space and since it's not a flat surface, I use my acrylic tray to keep all of my items corralled. Fresh blooms, a candle and my fave decor mags are the essentials I always have on hand (with enough room to place wine glasses for evenings at home, of course)."
"I'm always on the go and I really like to come home to a space that feels comfortable. My coffee table is a simple marble-top piece, which I love because I eat on it and it's easy to clean. Fresh flowers and pretty baking books add a little colour, candles scent the room and, of course, there's always something sweet nearby."
