In the spirit of more small decorating victories, I recently accessorized the round table in our front room. It’s the first thing you see when you come through the front door and since we use this as an all-purpose room, I decided to treat it as an entry table for the time being.
I’ve grown a pretty good collection of design books and used these in four stacks around the surface. (I chose the ones I like to look at most for reference since they’re easily accessible here.)
Then, I started shopping the house for some kind of vessel to put branches in to place in the center. I started with this one but it felt too “squatty.” (I moved it to my kitchen table.)
This ginger jar was a better height, with or without branches, and the blue pulled in some of the blue from my entryway wallpaper.
Then, I just topped the books with a few objects I already had (a candle, a vintage box, a blue and white box, etc.). This is where it’s fun to change things out seasonally or as you find new treasures.
What other styling ideas would you like to see?
