End Tables :: Styling Tips

END TABLE:: World's Away // COUCH:: Restoration Hardware // BOOK:: Louis Vuitton // CANDLE:: Bergdorf Goodman // PILLOWS:: Custom (similar here and here) // Gold Spikes:: HomeGoods (similar here) // MATCHES:: fun matchbooks here // COASTERS:: Shopbop

Styling shelves, a coffee table or end table / nightstand can be really difficult. There is a whole formula to this technique that can be quite confusing. I am actually way better at styling an étagère than a coffee table. Without fresh flowers ( mine tend to die very quickly - there are some pretty good fake flowers as another option) I always have difficulty working around other pieces without my centerpiece. But end tables, with a smaller surface area aren't as hard!
 

My number one piece for any styling is a really thick coffee table book. They are really easy to add anywhere in the home and are great to play off of. My end table in our living room is pretty simple! With one thick book, I made that my center piece and worked around it. On top of the book I put a candle, a small acrylic frame, a fun match book, and agate coasters. 

The larger piece in the back I found at HomeGoods ( they have really awesome hidden gems but you have to go on the right day - it can be a total hit or miss) I liked that this piece instead of a lamp tied in the gold but also gave a pretty straight forward layout some fun. If my end table was a round one which I have thought about switching too, I would probably put a lamp and redo the surface differently. My issue with home décor is that I am constantly changing my mind ( I spend too much free time on Pitnerest) and I get carried away in changing things up which can be costly. 



See what else I am loving for styling your end tables (or any other surface) below!
