Need an easy and purse-friendly way to freshen up your living room? Coffee table decor can instantly make your space look new, feel fresh, and set apart, and it doesn’t take much. As the focal point of the room, what you display on your coffee table will set the tone for the rest of the space.
Your coffee table décor should be cohesive, tying the rest of the room together – a few quick updates can make all the difference!
Without further ado, here are a few coffee table ideas that will not break the bank.
Coffee Table Centerpieces
When styling your coffee table, you should start with a stationary centerpiece – this could be a vase, flower arrangements, a bowl with balls, or even a wreath. The idea is to bring in a piece that will complete the design aesthetic of your space.
Looking to spruce up your home for fall? Add a dough bowl with fall elements like pumpkins and pine cones. Going for a natural farmhouse look? Add vases and bowls with neutrals and earth tones.
Your coffee table centerpiece should take up about 25% of your $100 budget, so spend about $25 – $30 on a centerpiece and surround with complimentary decor.
