Simple styling for your entryway: add a front hall table
For a long time I had a GINORMOUS, very happy Monstera plant in my front hall. I love her, but she was getting too big for the space, and had to move! I love the new look, which includes a super simple, cute and functional antique looking table, some coffee table books, a few candles, and a pop of spring!
Elements of Table Styling
Layers: Just like bookshelf styling, the key to styling a front hall table is layering. Giving the items dimension and different heights will keep the table looking uncluttered and well appointed.
Simplicity: Keep it simple! Too many things, no matter how cute or layered they are, will ultimately look cluttered. Taking into consideration the size of the table, keep the number of items under 10.
Odd is best: It’s usually a good idea to stick to odd numbers in your stacks! Two books with a candle on top, makes a perfect 3 stack layered element. One tall vase, and you get the idea! My front hall table has 5 items on it. Keep yours to an odd number too.
Curate: You can switch the look of your table up for different seasons (think cute wooden pine trees for the holidays, luscious bouquets for spring, etc.) and always be on the look out for unique and interesting pieces to add. The table will look best (and most like YOU and YOUR home!) if the pieces reflect your personality, and are not just a bunch of items from the Studio McGee collection at Target (although, that’s a GREAT place to start :))
