What's On My Coffee Table - Coral Collection

“What’s On My Coffee Table” is a monthly series where I share how I currently have my coffee table styled. Through this series, I hope you can pick up tips, tricks and be inspired to style your own coffee table at home. Share your styled coffee table on Instagram and use the hashtag #WhatsOnMyCoffeeTable and I’ll share a few favorites on the blog.

Here are a few of my favorite picks this month shared with #whatsonmycoffeetable on Instagram. Loving the serene color scheme and beautifully displayed shells.

This month, my coffee table is in full summer mode. Although I’m not of fan of summer and despise the hot temperatures I do enjoy bringing a casual, summer vibe to my home.  I have a collection of coral and shells that I usually keep in a lawyer’s bookcase but during the summer I like to display them more prominently like in my living room and in this case, my coffee table.

There are 4 basic items that I think everyone needs to style any surface and that’s trays, boxes, books and bowls. If you have a few of those items handy then you’re pretty much set. All you have to do is find some interesting things to layer on top of those items, like plants, flowers and in this case, shells and coral for summer.

My main piece on the coffee table is a navy ceramic planter that I filled with coral. I also scattered a few more shells housing them inside boxes and bowls.

The finishing piece on my coffee table is a large vase with a few branches. This gives the table some height plus the greenery adds some life and freshness.


Check back next month and see what I have on my coffee table for fall! I can't believe summer is almost over! (Looking forward to it).
