Styling Your Coffee Table Between Seasons
Coffee tables are more than for books and beverages. Just like the seasons they are constantly changing. Ken Wingard demonstrates his genius FABOO design method to keep your coffee table functional and stylish all year long.
F – Foundation. Start with bowls, trays, to help delineate space.
A – ambience. Votives with candles; you always want to have some sort of candlelight especially if you don’t have a fireplace or mood lighting.
B – Books. Choose books that you actually like and have interest in. Make sure the colors work - neutrals for the season between winter and spring.
O – Outdoor. Add an outdoor element such as a branch, stones, fresh flowers; set on top of the books. Build layers. Have a high, a middle and a low.
O – Oddity. You want to have something unique and distinctive on your table because it sparks conversation
Tip for styling between seasons: Keep it in neutrals, think of your colors as a palate cleanser from the Holidays. Add pale yellows, pale blues, stay away from seasonal - Spring is coming.
