I do love a good coffee tablescape arrangement when I see one. Typically, what grabs my attention - in a good way - is that there is always a sense of rhythm, balance, and progression that makes me stop and look at all of the gathered pieces.
Like a showcase of the homeowners personality and style, color tops the list when it comes to a beautiful arrangement of flowers, a pop of greenery, or a gorgeous plant sitting in an equally pretty container.
The natural element adds texture, warmth, and generally begins my journey towards discovering the next great piece that I may want to pick up or simply visually admire.
Adding a set of books or a tray that flaunts hobbies or items related to a favorite travel destination is well suited. The perfect grouping of three books or a group of five trinket pieces on a tray is the perfect odd number combination for this designer.
Rounding off the display is a whimsical piece or two sitting in front of or on top of the display of books. A gold skull, a piece of coral or crystal, and the pairing of swans simply makes my eyes smile and tells me a little more about my friends - and, yes, sometimes my clients.
One of my personal go-to favorites, if you are looking for an additional piece or two to add, are candles displayed in attractuve holders that celebrate the unique individual(s) who are enjoying their home in style.
