Spring Styling - The Sofa and Coffee Table

I actually had Sunday all to myself and had a wonderful time doing some spring cleaning and styling in my house. One little project was to style my sofa and coffee table for the spring with lots of color. I love the vintage pink Otomi runner I've layered on the sofa. I also added a new flamingo print to my wall art. On the coffee table I've mixed a pink patent leather tray, lots of interior design books ("Great Expectations" is actually a Kate Spade clutch!), and some J.Crew bracelets in vibrant pastels. The gold hedgehog on the skirted table is a Kate Spade coin purse and and the zebra handbag on the Chinese garden stool is vintage Kate Spade. See the zebra book jacket on "Henley On Safari"? - reminiscent of the iconic "I Married Adventure."

I love fashion almost as much as interior design (my daughter is a fashion stylist) and I often display beautiful jewelry, scarves, and accessories from my wardrobe. I was in C.Wonder the other day and all their foo dogs were wearing bracelets as collars and necklaces. So fun!


  1. So fresh and pretty!! I read your blog everyday. Have you checked out Ballard catalog lately? Lots of chinoiserie touches a great desk and book shelves.

  3. Love how you used the runner on the sofa.

  4. Love Otomi fabric! Always love seeing your Beverly Sills poster.

  5. Thank you for such an inspirational blog Beth. I, too, look at it every day - it's a great treat. I'm eagerly awaiting my tortoiseshell ice bucket that I just had to order after last week's post. In fact, like so many things in decorating I found I had to have a pair! Can you share where you found that exquisite porcelain beaker which looks to be a candle, the one on your coffee table? Keep up the good work for your worldwide fans. Jenny in Australia
