Desi Twists on Coffee Table

With the end of kids spring break, time to knuckle down to usual routine for many moms like me. Well, I did muddle through few days of break at work and devoted some extra time being in the hosting mode. My maternal success rate grows straight up in those exacting days when I get surrounded by being mommy dear to my little one with handful of other pre-teens. Few baffling deals of chess, puzzling strikes of carom board and exciting card games along with their compulsive use of consoles tied up their time along with mine making those popcorns and milkshakes.  Little glow of satisfaction on his face fills up tiny splinter of relief in me, being with him.  Though, after playing the gracious hostess, I did steal a dinner + movie date to kick back and tackle the week ahead ;) 

Let's dismiss the subject for now, and without further ado, get going to lend some off beat sense of style to our coffee table. Injecting a little magic to a bare canvas sitting in the middle of the room confidently adds wondrous drama. A definite place to impress your guests, with your added touch of flair to spark a conversation.   

Perfect bit of foundation for style and organizing on coffee table starts with a tray. Corral the clutter with a decorative tray. It tops up being an impeccable element in my upholstered ottoman. The tray can be easily removed for an essential extra seating in the room or to rest a foot at times when I slink away with  my book.


These dynamic tray duo takes endless rounds on my coffee table being the focal point in my family room with different avatars.
 



Handcrafted effigy of metal Ganesha placed on flower got his way to our home being a return gift for a wedding in the family. Decked up tulips adds a stylish flourish and inviting drop on this vignette. Playing with the height boosts some extra interests with accent pieces.

 
Spring is definitely making itself known around my home. Books are added to heighten the balance on my favourite Buddha display. An infectiously serene look on weathered stone Buddha was love at first sight and without me having to ask Aj,  Buddha was packed and ready to come home ;)
 
 

Some gorgeous pieces of repeating silver set on my bandhani throw are connecting element in this traditional vignette! Could be a perfect fit for a winter oasis inspiration in home. Pure silver Ganesha was another great hunt of Aj. Along with Ganesha few other additional pieces of silver are studded on the marble top. When radiant rays of sun pay visit to the bank of windows in the room, the bling bling sterling snips away all the fatigue.

                   
 
 
A round tray could be a good bet to place minimal pieces. Three is a magic number to stage any object for a visual balance. Here traditional Ganesha gets hipper with modern spring blooms stolen from my daughter's room.
 

Silver, brass and gold have a way of promptly elevating any space. Real blooms adds an inviting touch on this traditional setting. I find flowers are complementing and easy to work with while creating any kind of look.  To make an impact of collectibles, leave some extra room to rest your eyes. Table mat added that extra pop of the red colour on this setting.
  
 


Not much fussy but casual grouping of three with a pop of solid colour favours these modern metal candleholders in this setting.

Working on these alluring settings did not cost me a fortune. I played safe by changing and rearranging things I have had for years to take on a fresh look. You may get lucky to find long forgotten treasures or décor pieces that will get you an exceptional look in your room.  


I feel a welcoming vibe every time I enter my family room gussied up with beautiful coffee table arrangements; some sort of cozy feeling of belonging there. Impress your guests or soothe your soul by blending style and casual colour combos with some easy on eyes and interesting pieces on your coffee table. Do share your thoughts or creativities of designing your coffee table, I would love to hear it.

As a result of overflowing thought clouds at my end, many started and scrapped posts are in a pipeline for circulation. Ensure you are connected with me on my passion ride on facebook for more updates and visually pleasing treats of beautiful snapshots from my home until we meet again, toodles!
