Turn a console table into a bedroom vanity by hanging a mirror above it and tucking a stool or chic chair underneath. Do not forget a light source, like a delicate table lamp, to finish this pretty spot for primping. Stash make-up and jewelry in small boxes on the tabletop since most consoles do not have drawers.Tip: Perfume bottles and jewelry can make for beautiful decor too. Keep them easily accessible and highlight their beauty on a pretty tray.
Address shape and scale to the console table. Visual interest can be created with contrasting shapes. If you have a lot of square or rectangle objects such a books, trays and boxes, place an object either on top or next to them that’s round or cylindrical for contrast. Also introduce objects that vary in height to bring visual weight to the vignette and help to create balance. Remember to keep it simple – don’t over-clutter. Allow white space for the eye to rest.
A gorgeous console table makes a perfect blank canvas for decorating. But where to start? Here, we’re outlining a simple formula for creating an expertly styled, magazine-worthy vignette—one that can be customized in infinite ways to achieve a look you love.
A gorgeous sculptural stool can be placed underneath a console to create balance and interest. It’s also a great place to put on and take off your shoes and means you have an extra seat should you ever require it for guests when entertaining. Another great option is a pair of matching upholstered ottomans to create symmetry and add some colour and softness.
