Console Table Styling Inspiration

Happy Friday!  Today I am sharing the inspiration images for the styling of my new console table in my front hall.   I found most of these images on Pinterest and all of them are now found on my Pinterest boards — come follow me!

These first two images are realistically what the hallway console table will probably look like on a day-to-day basis — a catch-all for keys, sunglasses, umbrellas, shoes, and mail.  Both photos share greenery, lamps, leaning art, little bowls, and informal striped rugs.  I like the easy-going, yet thoughtful and edited styling of these spaces a lot:

The following group of images are in a similar vein, but a little more formal.  These hallway consoles use mirrors as their focal point, and are accented with fresh flowers and books or boxes:

This last group of images aren’t hallway consoles, but are styled beautifully:

{This is a console used as an end table in a bedroom.  I love the thoughtful placement of each object and the position of the mint green lamp – just slightly off center.}

{This little table is used as a sofa console.  I love the symmetry of the yellow lamps, the little yellow cabinet pulls and the baskets for storage.}

{If I recall correctly, I believe this image reflects an accent table in a dining room.  I adore the whimsy of the flamingos, the wallpaper, the understated art, and the feminine crystal accessories with the delicate pink flowers.}

There you have it – lots of inspiration!  I can’t wait to get started.  Have a great weekend – see y’all next week!

J. Lo’s Gorgeous California Home

Jennifer Lopez’s house featured by Veranda is stunning.  Surprisingly so.  It has an amazingly understated glamour and elegance. 

I start with this image because it’s the entrance to the home, although it’s not my favorite part of the house.  I love the wide runner on the curved staircase and the light blue couch, but I would do away with the fluffy wheat sheaves/feathery things next to the couch and add a more impactful piece of art
at the top of the steps.

I love this serene kitchen with the beautiful soft blue cabinets, pristine marble counters and gooseneck faucets.

The unexpected light fixture is perfect.  Great table and nailhead trim on the chairs.  Oh, and I love the styling — cupcakes, yes please!

The furniture placement in the family room is brilliant.  I love the use of chaises with those gorgeous mink pillows.  I would enjoy a punch of color in this room, maybe magenta or even a brighter blue like turquoise or teal.

This dining room is perfection: the luxurious wallpaper, the tufted chairs, the glamorous crystal chandelier, the pop of red and green from the calla lilies and peonies (?), and the ethereal window panels.  Ooooh and aaaaah.

Below is my favorite image — I love the whimsy of the flamingoes, the simple art  layered on top of that amazing wallpaper and the pretty styling of the lucite console. 

Can you believe that this is J.Lo’s house?  It’s a far cry from what I would expect to see from her on MTV’s Cribs (remember that show?).  Don’t be fooled by the rocks that she’s got, she’s still, she’s still Jenny from the Block….
