Accessorize with Silver Accents

FH Decor Idea: Silver Side Table Accents

I love to place lots of pretty accent pieces on my coffee table, but I can’t tell you how many times I have come home to find my husband sprawled out on the couch, feet up on the coffee table, and all of my gorgeous books, candles, and vases shoved over to the side. So a great piece I invested in that allows for his comfort AND my beautiful uninterrupted display of trinkets was my sleek side table.

Today’s decor idea takes place on this very table. It was inspired by all of the Mercury CandleHolders and Glass Vases I have collected over time from West Elm. Since I have a few in various heights, I love displaying them in a tight cluster. To accentuate them as a “set,” I recommend placing them on a tray… or in my case I chose a slab of petrified wood that I got from ABC Home. Alongside the display I kept with the silver theme and placed a vintage lantern {similar here}. What I love is that while this week I kept the mix strictly silver/whites and filled the candleholders with white tea candles, next week I may add a pop color and fill the small candleholders with bright flowers… the options are endless!

Living Room: Tour of Chateau FH

Decorating your Living room with white leather and grey sofa

As promised, the tour of the NEW Chateau FH {aka my home} has continued! For other rooms in my humble abode, visit my Interiors Section. This room is seriously my favorite of the whole apartment. I managed to make it sleek enough that I can have FH guests over for wine and cheese, yet comfortable enough for my husband to plop down on the couch and watch a game. I conquered this mission by 1. Sticking with a neutral color palette of grey’s and white’s, 2. By choosing sleek and simple furniture – like white Barcelona chairs and a chrome legged coffee table, 3. By adding some modern accent pieces – like the 2 West Elm floor lamps on both ends of my couch and the Inspire Q end table, and 4. Investing in an incredible piece of oversized Art.

Recycle your Herbs as Decor

L'Object floral Tray

Sometimes an update to my coffee table can come from the simplest things. Many times after cooking, in this case I was making this FH recipe {see here}, I have so much extra rosemary I need to find some use for it. Since I wasn’t in the mood to cook again because my husband was out of town, I thought why not incorporate it into my decor, so here it is!

For color theme, I worked around my recent purchase, the “Fortuny” rectangular platter by L’Objet which has a stunning iconic Fortuny fabric motif in gold. My rosemary merchandised back perfectly in my gold Tamara Childs vases and bowl from Corzine & Co and then the finishing touch was a candle by Dayna Decker. So there you have it, a gorgeous make-shift ‘floral’ arrangement that smells so fresh and is perfect for this time of year!
