To Style an Accent Table

 

     Most of us probably consider any accent table an after thought, with larger pieces like the coffee table or your desk viewed as more time sensitive. I agree in that you should get the things you see most often organized and looking nice, but we also shouldn't forget the small spaces that can hold some personality and add a little character to a space! Below I have listed some of my favorite things to perk up a sofa table I pass by on the daily. We set drinks on it, balance plates on it, and ultimately it ends up being a catchall for those random objects in our life. Here are my essentials:

1. A tray, wooden or acrylic. Whatever floats your boat! I've found ours is the perfect place to hide our T.V. remote from the baby. Also, a little life and good smelling things. We keep an air diffuser and my favorite little succulent in the tray!

2. A small box, for little things like matches for candles, that need to be kept away from Bailey's hands.

3. You can add something personal, like Bailey's framed birth announcement here. 

    There it is! I like to keep it simple and avoid clutter, but inevitably it shows up now and then. Feel free to send me some pics of your accent tables, I always love fresh ideas! Happy Styling!
