Welcome Home. Stay awhile. Get inspired.

Deconstructing a Coffee Table
and styling in ways you can still use it.

No better way to show one's personality at home than through a coffee table vignette.

A stack of your favorite books, prized photos, objects du jour, plants and flowers all add character to an otherwise plain-looking albeit practical piece of furniture.

This guy adds quirk and height.

Seek quirky vases.

Leave it to a pretty tray to catch and hold small things and trinkets.

Seek trays in all shapes and sizes.

Recycling old candle containers is always a good idea.

Bits and bobs that remind you of far-flung travels make the vignette more interesting.

You can never go wrong with a stack of books that inspire.

Whatever your style is, best to exercise a bit of restraint so as not to go overboard and leave enough room to keep things practical.

That is to leave room for your TV remotes, your cup of coffee, and of course a slice of cake.
