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.
