A beautifully styled console table can be a perfect solution to a blank wall or empty nook. Today I am sharing inspirations and tips to help you style your table like a designer. Take a look!
Find a Table that Fits your Style and Space
There are so many beautiful options for console tables. Although traditionally a console table had a very specific definition of a table anchored to the wall with two front legs, the term more generally means a table styled against the wall. So pick a simple table or get creative and use an inlayed dresser, a midcentury credenza, or a rustic chest. Just make sure the scale of the piece fits with the space you’re designing.
Create an Anchor
You don’t want your table to look lost against your wall. Make it feel intentional by anchoring it to the space with a large center focal piece like a mirror, a large canvas, or a gallery of smaller frames.
A bunch of small trinkets looks cluttered. Keep things clean and interesting by varying the height of the objects you add to your vignette. One idea is to style in threes with one object tall, one medium, and one short. Or create drama with one tall statement object.
Light it Up
Not only do you want to show off your pretty styling, but a lamp on the table is a great opportunity to add another soft layer of light to your space. Go with a traditional linen shade lamp or add a modern vibe with a midcentury task lamp.
Layer Colors or Textures
Add personality by layering objects you love. You could keep your styling monochromatic and focus on playing with textures, or add pops of color to enrich your white space. Think about styling with books, vases, lamps, sculptures, or organic elements.
Play with Symmetry
Styling your table in perfect symmetry around your focal point looks beautiful, but a balanced asymmetrical arrangement can also look fresh.
Go Under the Table
If you have a lot of space under your table, you might consider adding a basket, a bench or a stool. Not only will your space look more complete, but it can be a good place to add hidden storage or extra seating.
Finish with Florals or Greenery
