Summery Ways to Adorn Your End Table or Coffee Table

Has your home décor been feeling a little monotonous lately? One of the quickest ways to update a living room is to refresh your end tables or coffee table with a thoughtful arrangement of seasonal accessories. Whether you have a round modern coffee table or small end tables with storage, you can readily create mini focal points in your space with a few key items that stand out.

Go beyond the expected matching lamps bookending the couch and challenge yourself to curate a collection of coffee-table décor and accessories that reflects the summer season and enhances your room. Ahead, some easy and effective ideas to get you started.

Create Balance

Look for décor that makes your round or square coffee table stand out in the room rather than blend in with its surroundings. Select accessories that catch the eye with various heights, shapes, and textures. For example, you could add height with vases, jugs, and stacked magazines, and create contrast by mixing and matching wood, metal, and porcelain. Try placing a square metal tray on your round wood coffee table and displaying a ceramic bowl with some greenery for prime visual appeal.

Think odd numbers when arranging items on your wood or marble coffee table. Three or five items are more effective at capturing the eye and making an impact than using two decorative accents. Be sure to start with your larger items, and then add in your smaller pieces.

Consider a Color Scheme 

If your space has a neutral theme, consider adding pops of color to your living room table for interest. Opt for summer tones such as blue, green, yellow, and orange. You can add several colors with seasonal flowers in a vase or use plants and fresh greenery to infuse a natural element into your space. Potted faux plants are an economical way to bring the summer outdoors inside, and you won’t have to worry about watering them every week. Decorative bowls, photo frames, and stylish ornaments on a white coffee table are another easy way to inject a little color.

On the flip side, if you want to stick to a neutral theme with your coffee-table décor, you can still make a decorative statement by mixing materials. Metal candleholders can look stylish next to a porcelain bowl or wooden box, while gold items can add warmth to the top of your glass, wood, or storage coffee table

Make It Functional

Think about how you use your space and tables before covering them with accessories. There is no point accenting your wooden coffee table with decorative items if all you want is a prop for your feet or a place to sit your coffee. Ensure the number and size of your accent pieces suit the surface area of your table. If you have the space, consider incorporating a large coffee table or round coffee table with storage so you can showcase all your favorite pieces, keep essential items readily on hand, and have room to spare. Accent the end tables with practical items such as lamps or candleholders; this way, you get ample reading light at night and your space looks stylish during the day. 

If you have a small coffee table or ottoman coffee table, or just like to keep your room looking tidy, a decorative tray is a stylish and simple way to corral and display your accents. In addition to holding various smaller items you want to keep close, a tray can add interest and texture to your table. Try mixing shapes, such as placing a rectangle tray on an oval coffee table for contrast while leaving plenty of space around the tray to place drinks on the table. Trays and small baskets are also perfect for lift-top coffee tables, as you can easily move your items to get into the storage compartment.

Swap Out Seasonal Accents 

Trade cooler-weather décor for accents that celebrate the hot months. Display books and magazines that have a summer theme, such as beach holidays, travel destinations, or home renovations. Bright seasonal flowers from your garden or bowls of citrus fruit that look and smell summery are more ways you can freshen up your coffee-table sets. Be sure to mix in personal items with your tabletop accents, such as a family portrait of a summer vacation or a jar of shells from your last beach visit.
