Hi all! How are we all doing? WHAT is life right now? It has been a roller coaster of emotions for all of us, to say the least, but what a time to hunker down and count our blessings. The fact that we can have a home where we can self-isolate is truly a privilege, and the fact that we can have food on the table and be surrounded by our family is something to be grateful for.
Focusing on the good things has been helping us get through these peculiar times; however, it truly has been a day-by-day experience. Being on lockdown with the kiddos 24/7 is enough to make anyone go a little loco, am I right? The roles and responsibilities of being mom, wife, teacher, boss, employee, chef, house cleaner seem to be endlessly stacking high. It’s become a challenge to mentally be well while also wearing all the hats at the moment.
Now, more than ever, we have become hyper-aware of the importance of the home feeling like a safe-haven. The look and feel of your interiors is a total endorphin lifter and mood booster! The colors, the objects, the sights, the smells… it all matters and can do so much good for your mental state and overall well being. Filling your home with pieces that provide a feeling of comfort, peace, and inspiration is borderline a necessity during turbulent times like these.
We are here to provide you with some ideas on how you can bring a sense of collective calm and beauty into your own home. Whether that is sparking an idea of how you can rearrange items you already own, providing you with some suggestions of inspirational coffee table books to read, or energizing you to revamp the looks of your current nest with some retail therapy, we hope you can take away a few uplifting tips and tricks.
Today, we are talking all things coffee tables! A coffee table tells a story of you, your family, and the practicalities of day-to-day life. Yes, half of the time your husband’s feet might be propped on top or your kids’ cheeto fingerprints may be close by, but your coffee table should also reflect your home base. The living room is the first place most of us run to after kicking off our shoes after a long day of work. Whether being sick, having a movie night, or watching Thanksgiving day football with the whole family, we have all been a culprit of being a couch potato at some point and utilizing that coffee table for all it’s worth. So take a peek below on how you can liven up your coffee table while we are all under this state of quarantine.
