You guys, I hate to be a tease, but our living room is turning out really pretty. We’re just waiting on a jute rug to come in before I feel like it’s really worth photographing and ready to share with you. In the mean time, I’m just happy to walk in the door and see all the things we love slowly but surely starting to come together!
The one thing that’s really tripping me up? (Now that we’ve got the bookshelf styling checked off the list…) Our coffee table. No, we finally found one (this guy, which I looove) but now that it’s here I kind of don’t know what to do with it. I think it will help once there’s a rug underneath? I’ve been spending extra time on Pinterest trying to get inspired and thought I’d share some of my findings with you. It really is one of the first things you see when you enter our house so I want to make sure I get it right!
Part of the “problem” is the size of our coffee table — it’s a huge clear square and it looks rather excessive when I cover the entire surface with dozens of books. Thankfully we have new-and-improved lucite trays coming soon to the boutique that are seriously beyond and would definitely help break up the books. Until then, help a sister out… What’s on your coffee table? Any styling words of wisdom?
