In this post: If you’re looking for ideas to decorate a tight living room space, a small accent table could be the most versatile solution.⇒
Am I the only one who still has a land line in their home?
With terrible cell reception in our house, I insist on keeping a land line. But that leaves the question where do you put it? Our den has this tiny little corner where the line is connected.
With our huge sectional sofa dominating the room, there’s not much room for other furniture. But I needed a table for the phone that was sitting on the floor. My challenge: how to choose a French Country accent table for a small space?
I actually searched around quite a bit before I found what feels like the perfect solution. First and foremost it had to fit with the character of our decor. It also needed to be quite small and finally, as an add in to a room that had already reached its budget, it needed to be priced well.
I found this wonderful little table with a distressed painted finish that I could tuck right into the corner and still have enough room to walk by. It’s really more Gustavian Swedish than French Country, but I love the two styles mixed together. We have a similar chest of drawers in the guest room that blends well with our style.
Its location right under the window makes it the ideal spot for fresh flowers and I was delighted to head to our local flower shop to gather together this sweet little arrangement.
As a complete neat freak, I always love when the pieces I buy offer a place for extra storage. I have lots of design books and I enjoy having them within reach, so the little shelves on this table are an extra bonus.
Of course the primary function was to provide a place to keep the phone, and while I don’t love the look of technology on my pretty furniture, I’ve embraced its usefulness and determined to make it work.
Next up will be to change out this old coffee table, so be on the look out for another change sometime soon.
For color and interest, the floral arrangement includes lisianthus, pepper hydrangea, brassica and freesia.
My goal for this room is to bring in an interesting mix of aged patina with some edgy details. This accent table delivers a wonderful chippy paint vibe. I’ll be working on edgy next… 😉
So, any votes for what kind of coffee table I should get? Let me know what you think in the comments below. (I know, I know… already exceeded the budget! Don’t tell hubby…)
