Curio Style Coffee Table and Adding Green~

I just love our Curio style coffee table we purchased from Pottery Barn many years ago.  I love changing out the interior contents with the seasons.

During the summer months it is filled with coastal items...lots of seashells and such.  Fall-acorns, pinecones, rich earthy tones.  Christmastime-ornaments, snow covered pinecones and my Great Grandfather's vintage sleigh bells.

I recently changed the contents of the table out to incorporate more green.  I have added several new touches of green to our family room, which I will share at the end of this post, and wanted the coffee table to reflect the freshness as well.

This room in general is a bit difficult to photograph as it has floor to ceiling windows along the east wall, so it is bathed in sunlight for most of the day.  I took these with the top of the table open to cut down on the glare.

The table is filled with greenery, oyster shells, river rocks, pinecones, wine corks, moss covered balls, and more.  I will let the pictures tell the story.













With the top down.  We keep things on top to a minimum.  Our TV remotes, a candle, coasters and recently a fun game a friend gifted us at Christmastime.


I carried the green touches throughout the room.

Succulents in our giant clamshell.


Our fiddle leaf fig tree is thriving in this spot.


New throw pillows from Pottery Barn.  I mixed them with our lambswool blanket and pillow and another sweater pillow (all from Pottery Barn purchased several years ago).  I love the warmth that they add while still keeping things light.


Another embroidered pillow I purchased at Pottery Barn.  And yes, we LOVE that store!!


And, our dough bowl a top our mantle got filled with granny smith apples (faux).

I hope to get the room photographed soon so you can see how it all comes together.

Hope you all have a wonderful and BLESSED weekend.  I will be watching the Super Bowl for the commercials and the yummy food!!

Linking up with Stacie and the girls for THOUGHTS OF HOME THURSDAY.

So pretty! I've always liked curio type tables. It's so much fun to see what's in there. I'm sure it's a conversation starter when you have someone over. Glad to see that PB pillow in green at your house. I've been admiring it online. :)

That's such a nifty table! I love the use of green as an accent - love me some PB, too!

I nearly bought those two green accent pillows from PB over the weekend!! So close....in the cart, out of the cart, in the cart....I decided to go a different way that let me use more of the pillow covers I already have, just added a few fresh pieces. Stay tuned for that post!

Oh, BTW, if I had that table I would use it for my wine cork collection - perfect!! :)
