SP El verano se ha pasado volando y con los niños de vuelta en la escuela me puedo dar unos lujos, que con tanta corrida, planes, amigos, piscina, no me lo permitieron en estas 11 semanas.

Aqui les va mi lista de piezas favoritas disponibles en Incollect y Chairish…/ EN Summer has flown by and with the kids back in school I can give myself some treats, that with so many errands, plans, friends, pool, I couldn´t in these 11 weeks.

Coffee Tables, dining tables, side tables and nightstands are all great opportunities to display the personal items that we collect. I personally love coffee tables and large ones, for displays since typically they are in an area of entertainment and gathering, and a focal point for the room.

Budgets here can be as large or a small as you like, the key is to find pieces that speak to you, your travels, your hobbies, items that have a personal meaning.

When working on decorating projects I like to start by restaging table displays with personal items found around the house, many times it's simply a matter of reorganizing and placing items in a new way. I'll ask clients about their favorite decorative pieces. Favorite books are such a great item to decorate with and usually, these are tucked away on a library shelf.      

Bowls and trays are great to have on a table, they catch keys, pocket change, matchboxes from your favorite bar, restaurant or hotel. I love looking for bowls and trays at flea markets, in small curated home stores, or purchased directly from local artists. A mix of colors and materials make for a nice display. 

The coffee table is a great place to display collected items that reflect your personality. What is yours saying about who you are?

Small plants like miniature orchids or succulents also work well on tabletops. Plants add life to any room and it is proven plants improve our wellbeing. Check out The Sill for recommendations on small plants for all types of lighting. The Sill delivers plants already potted for you.

Candles and candle holders make for great sculptural items. Find scents that are relaxing and set a mood, it'll add to who you are and the personal space you are creating.

Have fun with mixing and matching your items, change up your display often and discover new items that bring you joy.
