You probably know that home-accessories are one of the most important elements in any interior, especially when it comes to our living room decoration – as this is the place where we spend most of our free time.
I admit – I love to hang out in my living room. It’s my place to host friends with wine and good music, to spend time with my family, to lay down on weekends (and do nothing, hopefully) or just watch TV… so naturally, the coffee table is a central decoration piece in my interior, and a busy one. I always “play” with the styling of the coffee table just for the sake of change – replace the accessories, the plants, change the colors a bit – you will be surprised how different it can make the room look.
Did you know that when you enter a living room, the two main pieces of furniture that attract the most attention are the coffee table and the sofa? The coffee table often becomes the centerpiece of the entire room due to its central position (especially in smaller places) which is exactly why it’s so important to take the time and effort and decorate it. The home accessories that you will put on your coffee table can truly make the difference between a pale, flat table and an “out of a magazine” one.
So if your coffee table has been taken over by newspapers, coffee mugs or remotes (sounds familiar??), this is the time for a styling makeover! with these amazing living room coffee table decor ideas, styling tips & DIY’s that I gathered for you, you’ll see that styling your living room coffee table is really a no-brainer!
