UPDATE - After Pics ... My Styling Story in SF

III. After Photos of My Coffee Table

i've been sitting in my home looking at my recent styling. At first I thought things were too busy because I like things clean and simple, but I have to say that this is really growing on me. There is so much LIFE and PERSONALITY in it (especially after glancing at my before pic again). Would love to hear your thoughts!

Wide shot of my coffee table and sitting area. I also decided to style the small side table between my chairs so everything flowed and was balanced. My coffee table is fairly large so I pulled out many pieces from different areas of my home to create this look.

Overhead shot. Divided my table into three sections being sure to feature a variety of shapes and create a pattern. Texture is brought to life through my rug. 

I wrap a lot of my books in craft paper to fit the color scheme of my home as well as give a rustic feel. The coaster serves the need of entertaining and provides a pop of color. I needed more shape and textue so I gathered a bunch of wine corks into a small bowl. (One in particular featuring my name.)

The center section of my coffee table showcases shape, need (entertain through photos) and bling. The third section features hardcover books, a bling tray and flowers from the Presidio. In the background you can also see some bling (sparkle) in the pillows sitting on my chairs. 

The lower level of my coffee table houses succulents on top of feathers (texture) and stacks of books. 

I added life to these photos by placing heels and wine in the shot. (Girl is ready for the weekend!)

My small side table has books covered in pattered paper and features bling with the frame.

I. Eight Styling Principles



Hi! Nice to meet y'all. I am so excited about this class. I can spend hours learning about anything related to design. It's my passion and creative outlet. In fact, I launched my own design business/blog last November. This will be a fantastic way to up my game and just continuously learn. 

Since working with clients I have let my 600 sq ft SF home slip a bit and it is actually being photographed by the amazing Sonya Yu (Insta @sonyayu) in May! This is perfect timing and motivation for me to upgrade my own space. 

I look forward to learning and being inspired by all of you!
