What does your coffee table say about you?
Is it a collection of coasters, remotes and magazines? Or is it a lovely vignette? Perhaps it provides your guests with a sidelong glimpse at your carefully hidden creative/humorous/dark side?
Or maybe it is a small grouping of objects and books that just looks pleasing to the eye?
Whatever the case may be, a coffee table vignette is another great way to express your personality in your home.
Vignettes don't have to be limited to the coffee table. A shelf, piano, end table, side table...really anything with a surface is a great place to group objects to create a pleasing arrangement.
Vignettes are another way to prevent clutter from accumulating. Who would want to stack mail on this lovely entryway table and mess up the lovely arrangement?!
Use colourful books and flowers to add flare to your arrangement. These can be changed anytime you decide to change the mood.
Orchids, coffee table books and beautiful "chachkas" are the main ingredients to create an "Atmosphere" arrangement.
Experiment with items you already own. Add a potted plant or a small flower arrangement. Add seasonal items. Use books to add colour, and height to the arrangment. Be creative, and have fun!
