Styling 101: Accessorizing Console Tables
Accessories are one of the most important parts of a well designed space. They are what completes the overall look and feel of room. This is an area where many people get stuck and find themselves at a loss for how to successfully combine different objects into something looks great and makes sense. Today we're going to look at console tables. If you have a console table or chest in your hallway, foyer, or living room, I've rounded up several great examples of how you can mix together different accents, artwork, lamps, etc. As you'll see, layering is key, along with combining objects in different shapes and heights. A few ideas you may want to try include leaning / layering art against the wall, stacking thick coffee table books to prop up / display objects, adding a lamp or two to create balance, using a large tray to display interesting accessories, hanging a unique mirror...the possibilities are endless! You just have to open up and be creative! Do you see any ideas below that you'd like to try? Do you find it easy or challenging to style / accessorize a space? I love hearing your thoughts and ideas!
