that console has style

I was looking thru old magazines the other night and with one little image, an idea hatched in my head. Who knows if it will work or not, but I'll be doing a little furniture moving this weekend. Followed by some console styling if things go well. I'll keep you posted.

Styling is hard, I think, but so fun to play around with. Running up and down the stairs to shop the house for what might work best. It's my cardio.

So to get me in the mood, let us take a gander at these winners.









All images via my Styling Pinterest board.

Which one is your favorite? Do you get a charge out of moving things around your house? Do you love a well styled table as much as I do?

  2. My favorite is the 4th one down with the dog and the globe and the tulips in the entry. That entire look works for me.

  7. I adore the 4th one down and it's not just because of the cute doggie. I move stuff all the time and there's nothing I love more than styling!!

    Happy weekend,Elizabeth

  9. I WANT that gold "hi" on the last one, and the color coordination on the books tweaks my inner designer.

  12. The second image with the purple console is totally amazing! I just love stacks of books. And the purple stands out so well against the white. Beautiful!

  14. I actually love the last one. It feels unstyled/styled. The "hi" is super fun, too.

  15. I fell hard for #2. The pretty purple console and the stacks of books. Oh I almost forgot the beautiful chandelier being reflected in the mirror. What's not to love?

  16. I was drowning in console styling when I did mine in my dining room but good god what a way to die! Love it all, so many good examples out there and I am still changing mine up on a nearly daily basis. Can't wait to see what you come up with! xxx

  17. I love console or tabletop styling- for me it's a place to add colour that I would normally be too chicken to use in my house. I like when items on a console are personal and have stories to go along with them. But I also love a good gourd lamp. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do! xo

  18. Photo 3 I spy a couple of Jane Austin Penguin books behind the sofa. Great collection of books still in reach and visible. I hope we always treasure the touch and purchase of books.

  19. I love the one with the striped floor and the one with the dog! I don't do too much styling these days because I live with a critter who delights in pushing things off of surfaces {lamps, pottery, laptops, you name it}. I have to solve that first but until then things are pretty no nonsense.

    I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  20. I'm a sucker for a good pair of lamps, so those are the ones I tend towards. All of these peeps have skills, though. I could definitely use help in this department.... :/
