Beautiful coastal coffee table books and decorIs your coffee table missing something? You have your coral, your flower or plant, but you still feel like it’s missing something. Try adding coffee table books!

Coffee table books are great way to display your interests and compliment your decor. They are a great accessory that can fill space without creating clutter. You can stack a few of your favorites and create a pedestal for another accessory as well, like a stunning white piece of coral or a wonderful smelling candle. Make those accessories work for you! It’s also fun to toss home decor books on the coffee table to have them accessible for inspiration.

Take a look at these coffee table books and see how you can use them on your coffee table!

:: Does Your Living Room Flow? ::

Standard

Tuesday Tips

Coastal cottage with noticable texturesWhat is flow? Flow is the ease of movement through a space. It means we aren’t tripping over ottomans, weaving betweens chairs or scooting around coffee tables when we try to move through a living room.

There is no reason your living room should not flow.

If it does not flow it typically means one of two things. First, there’s just too much stuff. Get rid of what is unnecessary. Store it, sell it or donate it. Second, you didn’t plan. You should always know your measurements. Know the measurements of the space, the furniture you’re trying to put in the space and the negative space.

Negative space is the area you actually live in. It’s the space between the coffee table and sofa where your legs go. It’s the space that you use to float that pouf between your chairs and sofa. When you plan the space for actual room to function and live in you will find the flow throughout the space.Eclectic coastal living room with tall ceilings making it feel very open Modern coastal living room Open coastal living room with modern and cottage style

:: 3 Easy Tips To A Kid Friendly Living Room ::

Tuesday Tips

coastal living room ready to take on the familyChildren play a large part when it comes to home design. Designing for the kids is completely different than designing for an empty nest, especially when it comes to younger kids. The way you shop for furniture and accessories will be and is completely different. That’s why we have 3 easy tips for you on how to design a kid friendly living room! We want to get you started on the right foot. Hopefully we can get you thinking about a few key design points when it comes to decorating with kids in mind.

1. Upholstery that can take a beating.

The sofa and the chairs are going into battle. It’s furniture versus children and the kids have the upper hand. The upholstery will be jumped on, spilled on and dirtied up. Invest in materials that can stand the abuse and can be easily cleaned. If you can only get one, choose the latter of the two. One choice to consider is leather. Leather can stand up to the abuse and can be cleaned fairly easy. Leather isn’t your style? Start looking into slipcovers – now. They will become your best friends when the messes come. Just pull them off and wash them, Life can be that easy sometimes.

2. Pick out a strong coffee table.

This is a must! You NEED a coffee table that will last. This is going to be a crucial piece in the living room. The kids will use it for many things and you’ll be extremely thankful you picked out a good, sturdy coffee table. It will be used as a place to eat, a place to play, a place for crafts and many other activities. Do it right the first time and get a solid, reliable coffee table.

3. Choose a wipe worthy paint.

Not all paint is created equal. You find this out when you have kids. Some how, some way, it all ends up on the walls. Researchers still have no idea how this happens and will forever be a mystery. It’s truly inevitable which means you need to cover the walls with paint that can stand a deep cleaning. Look into paint that can hold up with a thorough wipe down and won’t fade after one clean. It also doesn’t hurt to keep a little extra touch up paint handy, but let’s hope it never gets to that point.

Modern coastal living room with unique furnitureA good coffee table can set the tone and feel for any living room. It gives the space a spark while letting people know you’re not afraid to get creative and flex your design muscles. A living room is typically formed with a sofa, a chair of sorts, a side table or two, a rug and a coffee table. And usually they’re all arranged so that the coffee table is in the center. We say usually because we have seen a few interesting living room arrangements, but everyone has their style and that’s what keeps design fun.
