My Three Tips: To A Well Styled Coffee Table

http://myvibemylife.com/?p=3165
Tip #1: Have A Conversation Piece 
A great 1960s vase or 18th century sculpture is the perfect centerpiece for any coffee table. Head over to your favorite vintage shop or local home accessories store and select a centerpiece for your coffee table, that has some meaning to you. Be sure the centerpiece fits into the overall design of your space. When guests ask about the centerpiece you'll have the perfect story!   

Tip #2: Add Flowers    
Flowers are the perfect way to add some life to your space. Cherry Blossoms are my favorite, and you'll always spot some in my home. Select a bouquet of flowers for your coffee table that you love. You want to be sure the flowers are fresh and are in the right vase. Four flowers in a large vase looks quite silly, so be sure the vase doesn't eat the flowers!

Tip #3: Be Wary of Clutter & Scale  
Having too much clutter on your coffee table is a big no-no. Selecting two to three pieces is the perfect amount of accessories for your coffee table. You want to be sure that you don't have all tall pieces or all short pieces on your coffee table. For example, if you buy a large centerpiece be sure to buy a smaller vase for your flowers. By keeping the scale of your accessories balanced your coffee table will have the right amount of style. 

(ABOVE) I love this coffee table styled by Kelly Wearstler. The beautiful diamond jewelry against the leopard print table, creates the perfect conversation. Using jewelry as a coffee table accessory is a great way to add some unexpected glamour. Buy a tray and place a few of your favorite pieces for a little shine and sparkle. (BELOW 1) I choose this Living Room because, of the beautiful Cherry Blossoms and right scaling. Because the flowers are larger, the smaller accessories create the right balance. I also like the simple legs of the table, they work beautifully with the traditional mantle. (BELOW 2) Buying a few coffee tables or one with multiple surfaces like the one below, is a great choice. Having a few coffee tables is a practical idea as its easier to move a smaller table, then a larger one. Be sure to place your larger accessories on the middle tables and smaller accessories on the outer tables, for the perfect balance. (BELOW 3) Buying a fun coffee table is always a great choice. I love this checkered coffee table. Checkered coffee tables can work in many different types of spaces. What do you love about these spaces? You can add as little or as much to your space as you want. Don't follow rules, just do.

Room Spotlight: Modern Glamour

http://www.elledecor.com/image/tid/6659?page=1&pause=1
To call this space beautiful would be an injustice to its magnificence. Featured in the current issue of Elle Decor, this glamorous Living Room is a work of art. It's a mixture of classic touches with comfortable appeal. Who wouldn't want to snuggle up on the sofa or custom-made armchairs, while reading a book in front of the fire? The two pieces of art by Sarah Morris on either side of the fireplace add the right amount of color, to give the space a fresh feel. In addition, the Sciolari chandelier brings a more 60s/70s feel to the space. What gives this space its edge is the colors the designer used. The cream white, combined with the subtle touches of gold and deep wall color complement each other. What do you love about this space? You can add as little or as much to your space as you want. Don't follow rules, just do.

Today's Must Have: Mar 24, 2012


I am loving this Alice + Olivia dress. The soft tie-dye pattern is very clean and elegant. The colors and the simplicity sort of remind me of a sorbet on a warm spring day! What are your thoughts about the dress?

Going Modern By The Sea

http://www.verticearquitectos.com/
Designed by the VĂ©rtice Arquitectos in Peru, this modern beach home is set to take in 180 degree views of the Pacific Ocean. The way the home is set into the rock is quite remarkable. I find the home to work with the rock, rather then against it. (ABOVE) For example, if you look at the pool to the left, it dips down as to take the shape of the rock. I also find the home's unique shapes and angles to mirror those of the rock it sits upon. (BELOW) I love the white concrete material used to construct the home. It's elegant and allows the home's architecture to be the focal point. What fascinates you about this modern beach home?
