Conversation Coffee Table

I sit in my living room… a lot.  My coffee table stares back at me with sad eyes begging for conversation pieces.  I decided to enhance the decor by taking tips from “How to: Style a Coffee Table” – a post on one of my favorite blogs {Cupcakes and Cashmere}.

I have a rather contemporary living space with tiny bit of traditional mixed in…I wanted to capture that feeling in the chosen ‘enhancements.’

Table Decor 1A black and gold tray to showcase some pretty items.  A lotus and votive candle holder – both with gold accents and a red lantern to hold [fake] white hydrangeas.  All items, except the flowers, are from Cost Plus World Market {favorite store}.

Table Decor 2On the other end, a set of cute coasters for guests to set their drinks {thanks mom}.  A mini cake stand to house a spiced vanilla candle and glass beads.  Can’t forget the coffee table reads – Shoe String Chic {a gift from my brother}, a Longchamp catalog, and a book of Great Quotes from Great Leaders.

Table Decor 3I am looking to add a few more books, but I am very pleased overall with the outcome.  How do you think it looks?
