Seasonal Coffee Table Decor!


I don't know about you but I am so happy to have Summer at my door step! With the change of season I like to lighten up things in the house and add greenery and colors of nature. My coffee table is not an exception! 
 Have you changed out your table decor yet?  Here are a few hints on how to bring life to your table.




I love adding tones of green,whites or blues depending on the spaces color scheme. Also organic materials that tend to be monochromatic such as wood, clay  and stone lend themselves well to gray and taupe interiors,especially if you are afraid of color.  
However, I do believe that every table should have some life to it and that can be done in the way of flowers or plants. Those should add lovely color naturally to monochromatic spaces.   The other thing I like is something unexpected in the way of accessories, it could be an antique store or flea market find or even something your child has made for you.  All these things add personality to a table.


My must haves are books, trays, candles and coasters!  For one. I love my family and guests but don't love rings or things spilled on my table and trays and coasters solves those issues.   Books, well doesn't everyone like leafing through a beautiful book or picking up something fun to read while waiting for dinner or relaxing? Candles just add that ambience and favorite scent wafting through the entire room.




 If you are looking for more Coffee table inspiration turn to the professionals at Havenly, they have many curated rooms by designers to peruse and see the pieces they chose! I found this post  interesting and inspiring  while finding ways to decorate my coffee table, and I hope it sparks some interest for all of you too.

Totally Terrazzo!

Just when you thought Terrazzo was just for big hotels and other commercial projects think again! It's mainstream and with today's design leaning towards clean and more contemporary it fits right in.  I love all the amazing colors and variations that terrazzo comes in. I can imagine one with crushed shells being perfect in a beach house bathroom. The neutral or gray tones look wonderful in a clean lined kitchen or one that has slab wood cabinets.
 Truly you can have fun with this tile and a small foyer is not exception.  Check out these images and trust a little terrazzo!

Wooed by Wood!

I do believe that white kitchens will always be classic and gray has certainly made it's statement but watch out because wood is back in town!
Not just any wood, but clean,sharp,beautiful walnut and white oak,and sometimes even an unstained white pine.
I love wood on its own or mixed with a matte or high gloss upper set of cabinetry.  Colors such as taupe, dove and soft cream pair wonderfully with woods as well.  Don't believe me? Just take a look below!
