Gold! A Stylish New Side Table

Wayfair Side Table

It’s finally time for one of my favourite seasons. Everyone seemed overjoyed when autumn arrived and ‘hygge’ took over the entire world but I love light and warmth. It suits my personality and makes me feel so motivated.

We’ve recently started a big spring clean which has left some corners of our home looking a little empty and I’ve been on the hunt for a side table in the living room. Our big square coffee table is inherited from Pete’s previous house and is wonderful but just out of reach of the sofas so I was delighted when Wayfair got in touch to see if would be interested in working with them on a ‘gold’ theme, picking one of their side tables to style.

I’m always a little late to the trends party and metallics didn’t appeal to me straight away. Now I adore them, especially as some parts of our house are quite bland since we’re not going to be redecorating for a while. And whilst my whole Instagram timeline has switched from monochrome to dark walls, I just love the simplicity of white, minimalism and clean lines. It’s so calming and now there is the perfect blogging corner to relax in after a day’s work.

The gold side table has a stunning geometric design and fits perfectly in the corner between our sofa and fireplace. The mirrored top gives it an extra level of style and is the perfect spot for a faux orchid. If you’ve never tried faux plants before then you must, I was the biggest cynic but with an incredibly curious cat who clambers onto every available surface, real flowers and plants are a bit of a no-no now. Plus, my fingers are by no means green. This way, we have a beautiful looking plant without any of the maintenance is a winner all round.

Last but by no means least, there’s just enough space for a scented candle which is an absolute must when you’re a fur-baby Mama. For me, candles aren’t just for the darker months, I use them all year round favouring clean fresh scents. My candle of choice at the moment is the Bamboo Green Tea, burning soy wax and smelling divine.

This little corner of our living room has gone from tragic to comforting and is now my new favourite space to be in the house. Now, where’s that glass of wine?

    I love that side table, I have a similar one and they look very stylish. The mirror top makes it look even more beautiful!
    And I never thought of fake orchids could look that good!

    What a gorgeous little side table and it really does warm up the corner beautifully. I love metallics when used sparingly like this, as they add just the right amount of warmth and texture, with both dark or light decor backdrops. Great to have you co-hosting on #HomeEtc Lins- I am interested in any blogger who is also redecorating a 1930s home! K x

      You know I never thought metallics were my thing but now I really love them! Thanks so much for your kind words Keira X

    Love that orchid; I wish my real ones looked like that – I may have to go faux! x

      I am hopeless with real orchids and real plants in general! Go faux, it’s the way forward X

    Those photographs of Boo being naughty are the best! I really like how you have styled this stunning table and is it just me do soy candles have a much stronger scent?

    • April 2, 2017 / 10:27 pm

      I completely agree that soy candles are so much better!! And yes, Boo is the cheekiest monkey 😉 X

    I love that little table and think it looks brilliant in the corner of the room. I’m not a huge fan of metallics but do find that they really add a splash of warmth to a room.

    I love the table, I was so undecided which one to get and very nearly got this one it is so stylish, I am loving the gold trends at the moment x

    I love that side table. It’s so pretty. It fits perfectly in that corner too. If we had any gold in our house I think i’d be having to pick this up!

    Ooh I love that little table, in fact, I’ve been looking for something similar for a corner of our living room. Absolutely love the gold trends that are about at the moment! x
