3 Ways We Would Style Your Cocktail Table
Making a few changes to your space might be a good first step to give your home a fresh start in 2021. Why not start with your coffee table, which resides in the heart of your living room. The perfect place to bring your home style to life.
A round coffee table can be a bit tricky. Too many square objects can make the round surface feel off. It's best to play with a variety of shapes - round, square, and geometric. A bit of soft texture can make your surface feel more relaxed and natural.
Style tip: Add decorative objects on top of a coffee table book for a personal touch. This strand of wishing beads adds dimension to an otherwise flat object.
On rectangle coffee tables, try dividing the surface into quadrants and display an arrangement of four main items: A favorite coffee table book, a coral sculptural piece, a decorative box, or a gorgeous bowl, for example. A grid creates an organized and dynamic feeling.
Style Tip: Use decorative boxes to keep all your essentials such as remotes and coasters handy but hidden. A drawer comes in handy for magazines and remotes as well!
An interesting greenery arrangement can make your coffee table feel more organic and less staged.
One mistake that people often make with their coffee table is displaying too many similar sizes and finishes. The heights of your objects should stagger and balance each other. Combining different textures and finishes creates depth and interest.
Personal Style Notes
Casual, Flexible & Chic
As we turn to 2021 and dreams of normalcy, the mood on the street is to resume our stylish way. But perhaps with versatility in mind.
Nothing is more versatile than the denim jacket, a universal way to look chic, modern, and comfortable. This timeless piece looks good with almost anything.
You've probably got a blue denim jacket in your closet. If you don't, this one has a luxurious stretch that allows for complete freedom of movement. The raw hem adds a decidedly modern touch.
Style Tip: The three most popular ways to style a jean jacket are with a contrasting jean, over a dress, or with black leather pants.
Change things up with colored, wax-coated denim pants. These often have the effect of being mistaken for leather.
Not only can you change up the traditional color of your denim pants, but your jacket as well. This traditional trucker jacket is crafted with a rich velvet in merlot. The coloring alone will brighten your day as well as your look.
Style Tip: If you are wearing black denim, wear a solid colored top. If you pair a denim jacket with blue jeans, make sure the shades of denim are different.
This black denim jacket takes its inspiration from classic military wear. Casual, yet so sophisticated with its decorative, eye-catching buttons. Totally appropriate for business casual zoom meetings!
Style Tip: What is the best neckline to wear with a jean jacket?
Denim jackets always seem to look the most modern with a v-neck top or shell. A turtleneck can work great if it is not your run of the mill white cotton. Try one with a luxurious thread or pattern to create a fabulous look.
