Coffee Table

I always have fun playing with the coffee table vignette, but sometime I just need to tweak it a tiny bit to make it work.  I am really enjoying the brown, camel and gold with my cream for a warm color scheme.

I kept most of the vignette as is, just a few small changes, 

 added some greenery, a few different books for color

 kept the globe,

added some brass,

and a whole new look.  I love how the rush seats of the stools add texture.

 Works great and adds an air of elegant informality to the room.

Another fun look just shopping the house.

  1. Good Afternoon Marty, I love the display on your coffee table and especially how the woven texture of the stools can be seen underneath the glass.
    I used to watch men and women making these seats for chairs, when I lived on the Island of Cyprus. They were very popular indeed.
    Have a lovely day.
    Best Wishes

  2. Hi Marty! It looks beautiful as always! You have such a nice touch. Have a wonderful day!

  3. Marty what a beautiful table.Yes I agree those seats are perfect and add a bit of texture.Beautiful vignette as always!

  6. Marty, your room is gorgeous. You always have such a good eye and put together the most beautiful vignettes.

  18. Marty,
    The changes that you have made in your home are amazing. Your livingroom looks entirely different with the new additions. I love your coffee table and the vingettes you've created.
    Love the colors. Everything is so crisp and lovely.


  19. Marty,
    Dear friend, you are such an inspiration for my life!!!
    A few days ago, while working in the Lower Level Living Room,
    I changed out many of the accessories on the end tables and
    freshened the pillows. Not BIG changes, but HUGE impact on the
    room!!! No money spent and such a steamlined appeal!
    Thank you for always inspiring!!!
    P.S.. . .and thank you for your sweet comment and visiting me today!!!

  20. Hi Marty! Oh, how nice this looks. Everything you do turns out stunning!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  21. Great combination of elements! It has that global pun intended. I love shopping the house, except I got rid of so much last year, now my "shop" is in need of some new "stock". Hugs and have a great weekend,

  22. Love what you have done Marty! Thanks for sharing over at The Homemaker Hop. Love the colors.

  23. Marty...your rooms are always so warm and inviting! Makes me want to come over, sit and visit for a while...:)Beautiful!

  24. Marty, Your home does look so elegant, yet wonderfully comfortable and welcoming! Love your coffee table with all the different textures and colors in your vignette. You certainly have a knack of grouping things in such appealing ways.

  26. Looks great Marty! Your vignettes always look beautiful!

  27. Looks beautiful, Marty! Everything goes so well with your pillows. You always have the best inspiration. Very pretty!

  28. I wish I could do more vignettes on my coffee table like your gorgeous one. Alas, there are too many little hands in my home that like to take anything on the coffee table and 'rearrange' it =)

  29. Your coffee table is so unique with the rattan under the glass. I like how you styled it. The black globe is really a statement maker too!

  30. Your rooms are always lovely, Marty. The way you switch things up always keeps them fresh too. Wishing you a great weekend and great week ahead.

  31. Marty, you are THE BEST at creating new looks by shopping the house! You inspire me!!

  32. Very pretty Marty! Thank you for joining Home Sweet Home!

  33. It looks lovely Marty! coffee tables are so great to do quick changes! It has been a very busy week for me so, I am just now catching up from last week's party. Sorry to be so late! Thank you for sharing at TTF

  34. Nice Post I like nice furniture
    It looks better than even when it was new.
