5 Tips To Elegantly Style Your Console Table With Desiree Leone

Console tables are great to use in your entryway, dining room, or any space that you want to display décor that’s special to you. Since my decorating is always coastal-inspired, I opted for a rattan console table that I can use in any room of the house. Right now it’s in my entryway and I love that it’s the perfect size for this space. Now, I’m going to share how to elegantly style your console table in 5 easy steps. Let’s get started!

1) Add Artwork or a Mirror Above Your Console

Adding the perfect piece of artwork or mirror above your console is a great way to tie in more color or texture. I opted for a piece of artwork that would add lots of color to this space. It makes me feel so happy every time I walk by it.

2) Add Shells From Your Collection

Shells and beach rocks are a great way to elegantly style your console table. I placed my prized possessions, gathered from my recent vacation in Nantucket, into one of my favorite baskets. The soft, smooth rocks remind me of my favorite movie, Something’s Gotta Give.

3) Add Fresh Flowers

One of the best ways to style your console table is by adding some fresh flowers to a beautiful vase or container. I picked up this orchid from Trader Joe’s and love how the color of the petals ties in with the artwork and conch shells.

4) Add Coffee Table Books

I love a good coffee table book and when you have a beautiful collection of them, make sure to show them off on your console table. They’re another great way to add color to your space. Plus, when you have a chance, make sure to peruse them for more design inspiration.

5) Add Candles and Lighting

Adding a scented candle and/or a lamp is always a great idea. This lamp shade adds the perfect amount of texture to make this space look super interesting and well put together. I say… have fun with the lamp shades. It’s easy to swap them out with one that will create a more beautiful effect.
