5 Chic, Easy Ways to Style an Instagram-Worthy Tabletop

Ever walked into a friend's place for the first time and felt like you were standing in a carefully curated art gallery rather than a space someone actually lives in? Every object had a place, books were arranged by color, and every room had something unique to offer. But before you assume the pristine design is the work of a top-dollar professional, consider that your friend may know a little secret that you don't: Decorating is all in the details. Yes, a fancy new coffee table is always a welcome upgrade, but it's how you style said coffee table that really makes a room come alive. Think small accents like trays, vases, and candles.

Achieving this look in your own home is easier than you may think. Start by removing the clutter that covers your surfaces, from your desk to your bedside table. Once the surfaces are clear and free of debris, style them with pieces that are both beautiful and functional for each particular space. To help guide you in the right direction, we're showing you simple but creative ways to decorate five different tabletops throughout your home. Whether you live in a coastal bungalow or a midcentury-modern loft, we'll show you what to put where for a functional and truly Instagram-worthy space with some help from Kendra Scott.
