Coffee Table Shuffle

It's always fun to rearrange this whether it be furniture, artwork, or accessories. Design is a process that is always evolving. 
During the rainy afternoon yesterday, I got a wild hair and started transforming the glass top of the den coffee table.

The coffee table now holds several books: Audubon's Aviary, Preppy, House Proud.
Atop Audubon's Aviary, an English oak wooden stand holds a boxwood sphere, a jeweled alligator, and two monogrammed round glass plates from C. Wonder.

Atop the other stack, a Green Moss candle by IZOLA in my favorite Vagabond House pewter acorn and oak leaf tray.

A bamboo framed picture of J & I sitting in Paris Market rests to the rear of the vignette.

I love the Laurel Wilder reverse decoupage rectangular tray.

The Oysteria oyster shell holds toile coasters and a coastal barnacle.

On the lower shelf, a seagrass basket holds my favorite magazines and remote controls.

Do you like to rearrange your accessories???
Coffee table shuffle, y'all!


  1. Ron,
    This looks great. I love all the "rearranging" you did. Love the seagrass basket for your fave magazines and your remotes. Looks really beautiful.

  2. I'm always moving things around in my home. Keeps it fresh and fun!

  3. Everything you do is always so lovely!! I think I need you to come shuffle my house :). Have a great weekend!

  4. Love it! I love how you have created several vignettes inside of one larger one. I love moving things around. The main reason I keep our walls and main pieces neutral.

  5. Looks lovely! Like you, I'm forever tweaking and restyling vignettes. Just returned from a morning estate sale with a new collection of tartan ware to add to my budding collection. I hit the jackpot! Also a pretty petite tea caddy. Score! '-)

  6. Very pretty! I re-arrange quite often....
    Have a great weekend!

  7. Good morning, Ron! Love the new look on your coffee table. You have such an eye for design. Isn't amazing how "shuffling" things around can create a whole new look?!!! Have a great day! xoxo

  8. Excellent job! Great mix of different elements. I love that Oysteria sea shell with the sea conch in it and the Laura Wilder tray. I just got one of those purple ones at my visit to that sea shell city store I went to. My oval coffee table makes it hard to decorate- need corners!

  9. I laughed so hard when I read this post. My husband leaves the decorating to me but he always tells me he wants either a dinosaur or an alligator in the living room. The ones he picks out are awful. Your alligator is beautiful. I'm not going to show him because he would try to track one down and I'm not sure the cats and dogs would leave it alone.

  10. It's always so neat seeing a coffee table with interesting items on it, and yours is definitely interesting...and I mean that in a good way. :) Love the seagrass basket on the shelf for holding remotes, and the acorn and oak leaf candle holder. I change my living room coffee table more often than the family room one. I really should do something with it.

  11. I spy the latest issue of G&G below, as well! 😊 Looks great, as usual!

  12. Such a great look Ron. All of your items are really great conversation pieces. You have the decorator's touch. xo

  13. Wonderful look for your Coffee Table, Ron. I love moving things around...accessories, pictures and things hung on the wall and furniture. :)

  14. Gorgeous Ron! Love every detail. Need to see it in person.... xoxo
