The core of any coastal style living room is the coffee table. For this style, you need an oversized coffee table that can fit everyone around it. Lightwood and curved details bring in the driftwood feeling that we always think of when it comes to coastal design. The final touch is having one or two trays to hold all your decor pieces that can be moved when you are ready to break out the board game.
Add subtle balance to your sideboard decor with interestingly shaped objects that draw attention to your art. Flanked by 4 uniquely shape decorative objects, the landscape in this image becomes more attention-grabbing and gives the eye a nice scene to focus on.
A lot of people think that you have to go full Mad Men to have a Mid-Century-Modern space. But there are more subtle ways to add the classic style to your home. For example, this living room space blends Mid-Century-Modern elements with an eclectic and contemporary flourish. The tapered legs of the coffee table or the tripod lamp in the corner are pure Mid-Century-Modern, but when paired with a contemporary white sectional, they feel both subtle and up to date.
Studios likely have limited options when it comes to setting up a home bar, but using your dresser can work just as well as a credenza. Use a tray to section off one area of the surface for bottles, garnishes, etc. And add flowers and a few decorative touches to give it a little extra personality! It’s the perfect fix for a small space.
A super simple way to rig up a handsome bar in your home is to use a credenza to double as a cocktail crafting station. It’s kind of like a bar cabinet already so it makes sense to stash your bottles in the cabinets and add a tray on top with glasses and other barware. This is a great way to make use of this key storage piece that you likely already have at home.
