5 Coffee Table Vignettes For Your Living Area

Bring out your favorite pieces and style it your way


When decorating our homes, we try to add as many personal touches as possible. Aside from the different areas that speak of our passions and personality, there are also nooks within the home that showcase the things we love, our collections, and a couple of investment pieces that we hold close to heart.

If you've recently embarked on a home improvement project, you may want to work on the living area slowly but surely. A chic vignette can brighten up this space and give guests a peek into your personal style. Here are five pretty pegs that will surely inspire you and give you ideas:

Try minimalist.

Can you still spot the vase holding the flowers? If you're into the minimalist style, focus on clean lines and simple details that leave an impression. Avoid clutter by choosing only one focal piece and two to three accessories. In this black-and-white living area, the owner chose to keep within the palette by opting for a vase in the middle, a magazine, and a candleholder with a similar finish as the table's legs.

Combine rustic and vintage details.

Achieve a country-inspired setup by recycling an old wooden tray and a small wire basket. Use it to keep the accesories in place. You can also use the wire basket to organize remote controls and other entertainment essentials in the area.

Keep it homey and simple.

If you have a round wicker basket at home, use it as a catchall for your chosen pieces. Make your love for your home known by displaying fresh flowers from your garden, an album of family photographs, and two of your favorite scented candles.

Make it Zen.

Set the mood in your living area by choosing pieces in earth tones. These must-haves will give your space an Asian and tropical-inspired feel that will surely make your guests feel at home. As an alternative to scented candles, you can have a reed diffuser or an incense burner. Complete the look with a pot of herbs or succulents.

Be stylish.

If you love collecting coffee table books, you can stack three of your favorites to create a mini tower that can hold one accent decor piece. Those who love interior design books can pick three thick editions and finish it off with a charming accessory that defines your favorite interior style. This also applies to those who are into fashion trends! Instead of a home decor item, you can display a fashion must-have with gold or bronze details.
