it's all in the mix - combining side tables


Hey all, it's nice to be back! We had a wonderful vacation in Lake Tahoe where we
met up with family and kept busy enjoying all kinds of activities. One of my favorites
 was the zip line adventure park. I loved the thrill and challenge of making it across the
 most difficult wobbly obstacles while swaying high above the trees! #adrenalinejunkie 
There's nothing better than a small town 4th of July parade in my book, except fireworks
 over the incredibly gorgeous lake. It took me a couple days to get back in the groove, but 
I've missed you all and I'm ready to chat! :) 

I love an interesting room that leaves you wanting more, and wondering what's around
the corner. For me it's all about mixing styles to create a space that grabs your attention.
Side tables are one of the easiest elements to mix, you really can't go wrong choosing
pieces you love, keep in mind opposites attract. 

Here are some fun examples: 

A subtle tree stump accent table adds the perfect organic element to any style...

A great eclectic mix ~ lucite, antique spindle leg table and ceramic garden stool...
Notice: Style, colors, finishes and shapes

Vintage bamboo pie crust table with wicker...
Notice: Busy base versus simple base

Perfection ~ lucite, wood and demilune table...
Notice: Different finishes, color and shapes

Dark stain and clean lines paired with light color and gorgeous curves... 
Notice: Opposing colors and shapes

Moroccan style wood combined with modern white ceramic...
Notice: Wood tables with all the leg action work with table/ottoman without legs

I agree Pam, side tables can add so much character to a room. Our ceramic elephants from Asia really add a punch of interest.
BTW there is NO way I would have tried the zip line!!!! Wow!!!

Such pretty rooms. I love all of them - from stumps to traditional. I wouldn't have thought of some of these combos but I love the mix!

Julie Reinwald said...

The zip lining sounds like a blast!
I love all of these photos, and I am a huge fan of mixing table styles within a room.

Julia Konya said...

Love all the rooms and combinations

My comments keep disappearing so you might end up with 5 from me - if so - that's just how much I love you! Great examples of how mixing it up makes a room interesting. So many people are afraid to break up their end table/coffee table sets. I will be referring back to this post for sure - thanks for sharing! Ziplining sounds like it was a blast!!!!!

Must say that I love the inspiration room from Homebunch...and Cassie's sitting area is the best!...

Vel Criste said...

I used to be afraid of any mix, but now I've been inspired by so many great bloggers (such as you) to go out of my comfort zone, and I love mixing old and new now!
