Seriously, how can it be only Tuesday? For some reason summer is always one of the slowest times at work. I think it has something to do with everyone taking vacations and trying to maximize the time spent away from the office during warmer months. I can tell that fall is near because work is really starting to pick up. To top of a busy work week I have a few fun things planned for the week like an art class. I am also finally getting a hair cut. I have needed one for a month but it is so hard to find the time to schedule it. My long hair has been unruly lately and I am thinking about getting something shorter like this.

I spend a lot of time in my living room in the evenings after work or when I have guest. Recently I have been thinking that the coffee table which is basically the center of the room is a little sad looking. My coffee table is a large circular table that I love but it is usually aside from a stack of book (this one being a current favorite) is rather bare.

I've decided that giving my coffee table a makeover will be a fun project to tackle this fall. I spent some time early Sunday morning browsing online for some ideas and my favorite are pictured above. I am obviously drawn to feminine pieces with a lot of pinks and golds. Even the natural elements I love are largely glamorous.

Do you have any helpful tips for styling a coffee table that I should know?

  6. I love those sea urchins! And am also in desperate need of a haircut. Also, I think I have the same grid iron top from Old Navy that you mentioned on my blog - when they do stuff right it's really cute.

  9. These are so cute!! I wish our tiny little Ikea coffee table was a little bigger so in the future I'm definitely getting a bigger one that would hold a tray. :) I think it's always a good idea to have cute little cocktail napkins somewhere nearby for spills etc. :)

  10. while i currently do not have a coffee table, in the past i've always loved having a candle on there and a small vase of flowers when available...maybe a magazine or book. the tic tac toe game would be fun!!
