I have a great coffee table....black and silver base and a cherry tray top. I love the lines on the base...a little curvy yet simple and sleek.
What's that huge, black blob on the floor, you ask?
That's Henry, Big Dog, totally passed out from his busy day at Doggie Day Camp!
(He goes every Friday and sleeps most of the weekend so I can get things done!)
I couldn't get him to move to take the pic!
Anyway, here's where I need your help. I want to do something interesting on my coffee table. I need ideas!! What kind of vignette would you create? Why is it so easy to design beautiful spaces for other people and so hard to do it for myself??
I need a little collaboration here!
Although I'm sure the remotes will spend some time here I don't want them to be a focal point like they are in this pic.
I see alot of books on coffee tables...stacked, open, color coordinated.

A little sensory overload for me in this one!

Candles and lanterns are always good.

I'll just take the view in this one!
I see a lot of flowers on coffee tables.

but maybe this is a little too much floral going on.

I don't have a huge goddess head to use, so don't suggest that!
I do like the horn on this one.
Objects d' art and shells are a popular choice.

Way too much to dust here....remember, black dog hair everywhere.

Love the pop of color in the orange boxes, but a little too much stuff for me.
Decorator to the stars, Ozzy and Sharon Osborne (and many others !), Martyn Lawrence Bullard, used all of these elements on an entry table in the Osborne's home.
I guess "The Hand" in black is an homage to Ozzy....I'll pass.

A tray table like mine is a bit more of a challenge because flat objects don't work well, so we have to think vertically, but not too high because we don't want to obscure TV viewing!
....and I think I'll keep my shoes in the closet!
I like the clean lines of this vignette....and the crown doesn't hurt either.
So, any unique ideas out there in decorator land for this designer who's run out of ideas to decorate her own home???
