During the summer months it is filled with coastal items...lots of seashells and such. Fall-acorns, pinecones, rich earthy tones. Christmastime-ornaments, snow covered pinecones and my Great Grandfather's vintage sleigh bells.
I recently changed the contents of the table out to incorporate more green. I have added several new touches of green to our family room, which I will share at the end of this post, and wanted the coffee table to reflect the freshness as well.
This room in general is a bit difficult to photograph as it has floor to ceiling windows along the east wall, so it is bathed in sunlight for most of the day. I took these with the top of the table open to cut down on the glare.
The table is filled with greenery, oyster shells, river rocks, pinecones, wine corks, moss covered balls, and more. I will let the pictures tell the story.
With the top down. We keep things on top to a minimum. Our TV remotes, a candle, coasters and recently a fun game a friend gifted us at Christmastime.
I carried the green touches throughout the room.
Succulents in our giant clamshell.
Our fiddle leaf fig tree is thriving in this spot.
New throw pillows from Pottery Barn. I mixed them with our lambswool blanket and pillow and another sweater pillow (all from Pottery Barn purchased several years ago). I love the warmth that they add while still keeping things light.
Another embroidered pillow I purchased at Pottery Barn. And yes, we LOVE that store!!
And, our dough bowl a top our mantle got filled with granny smith apples (faux).
I hope to get the room photographed soon so you can see how it all comes together.
Hope you all have a wonderful and BLESSED weekend. I will be watching the Super Bowl for the commercials and the yummy food!!
