3 ways to style: a console

we got busy this week styling an awesome console that's new at the shop. it's just such a great piece for an entryway because it's long and lean with just enough interest to make it extra special.  i was inspired to welcome it properly -- here are three ways to make it feel at home.

LOOK ONE: been around the world and here's what i have to show for it.

to make this look work, we used two containers from anthropologie as vases for live cuttings from the yard, adding height on the ends of the vignette.  we tucked a bench under the console, added a basket with some pillows and sprinkled in lots textures for interest, like the shell box, the blue and white bowl, the brass armadillo and the rope frame.  the kilim rug completes the traveled and curated feel.

LOOK TWO: if you're happy and you know it then your console will surely show it

here we used two black gourd lamps on either end to keep the look from feeling too sweet , and peppered in major pops of fun with the gold pig, the black and white canisters, the lotus flower, a pretty candle and a happy-hued stack of books.  the wildflowers in the pink votive are an easy way to pick an entry up and make you smile when you walk in.

LOOK THREE: red, white & blue ain't so hard to do.

big pieces make a huge statement in this vignette - we used a colorful framed print to anchor the look, and filled in with an assortment of blue and white porcelain, a pretty moment in the chevron tray, and a moroccan rug to add a luxe feel to this collected grouping.

Thanks so much for this post - since I'm really in the mood for fall updates, it's nice to see the versatility in this one vignette!

Thanks!

Lianna said...

it's so hard to pick just one! But my fav is the last one - LOVE the redish/orange stools underneath!

Catherine said...

I can't decide between the second and third ... and the first. They're all so good. Who makes the rug (on the floor) in the second look though?

Chelsea said...

You are so incredibly talented. I would happily display any of these vignettes in my home! I'm moving out of my apartment into a big-girl house in a few months.. want to help me decorate? ;)

Your style is amazeballs. I am completely in love with #3.

Andrea said...

All beautiful! Is that a throw on the zebra bench? Gorgeous fabric!

If I had to choose just one, I'd say the Happy and You Know It vignette. Or the Been Around the World. Maybe the last one. Woo!

Samantha said...

Love them all but I think my fav is the second one!! Great job in showing the versatility in one piece :)

Millie said...

Kristen said...

All three are gorgeous! Although, I do have a special place in my heart for blue and white ginger jars - I think that's my favorite look.

Sketch42 said...

Wow each looks fantastic. I really can`t pick a favorite. However, I`d want that brass armadillo to be featured in all of them, he is too cute.
You did a greeeeeeeaaaaaat job!
