Coffee table book styling ideas for coastal homes. Books are a great accessory for styling vignettes. Whether you style a vignette on a coffee table or other areas of the home, books provide height to the vignette. Coffee table books tend to be heavier and larger in size than others. Larger books such as coffee table books act as a platform for decorative objects. As well as allowing for a wider area that can support bigger decorative objects. You can create a single stack of books or several stacks of books to elevate decorative objects. The tabletop surface size will dictate how many stacks of books there is room for.
As far as which decorative objects to place on books, consider fragrant candles, vases of flowers, plants, or decorative bowls. In a coastal-styled home, you’ll frequently see coral pieces displayed above book stacks. Coffee table books can be placed inside a tray or directly on the table surface. Although, using a tray helps the area look tidy and put together. Trays give the vignette a more finished or completed appearance.
