How to Decorate Hampton’s Style Side Table

When it comes to decorating a side table, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, choose a décor style that fits with the rest of your home’s aesthetic. Then select a few special pieces to display on the table that reflect your personal style and preferred colour scheme.

Here are five side table décor ideas that will make your Hampton’s side table look more elegant than ever before.

Decorate with a Lamp

A lamp is a great way to add some extra light to your space, and it can also be a great way to further enforce your personal style for the room. Consider the type of light you would prefer for the room, whether it be warm and dim for a more inviting space or cooler toned and brightly lit. For an elegant finish, we recommend a statement and luxe lamp as seen styled here. You can also opt for a more industrial aesthetic as we have also styled here. Or, if you can’t decide sometimes an eclectic approach of choosing two alternate lamps can create an interesting space as seen here.

Add a Plant

A plant is the perfect way to add a touch of elegance to your home. Not only do they look great, but they also purify the air and help improve your health. When it comes to houseplants, there are a few different types that work well on side tables. Fiddle leaf figs are a great option because they add a touch of greenery to any space. If you’re looking for something a little more low-maintenance, succulents are a great option. Orchids are also a beautiful choice for side tables, and they can add a pop of colour to your home.

Include a Catch-all Dish

A catch-all dish or jewellery dish is a great way to add some extra decoration to your side table. Plus, it can help you keep your belongings organised and tidy. Whether it be a beautiful handmade ceramic dish or something made of regal glass, this is a great way to add dimension and varied heights to the décor on your side table.

Decorate with a Book 

A great way to make your side table look more elegant is to decorate with a book. It is also an easy way to add some color and life to your side table. Plus, it’s a great conversation starter if you have guests over. Choose a topic within your interests and something that also suits the colour scheme of your bedspread. But not just any book, a beautiful hardcover that coordinates with your décor. Here are five of our favorites:

1. The Art of french Decorating by Florence de Dampierre

2. The Sleep Revolution by Arianna Huffington

3. In the Mix by Lauren Conrad

4. Dream Rooms by Better Homes and Gardens

Finish with a Candle

Consider the lighting of your room. Decorating with candles is a great way to add a touch of elegance to your home. There are many different types of candles you can choose from, so you can find the perfect one to match your home’s style. Candles also bring warmth into your home and create an inviting and tranquil space. They can slow the mood of the room and also add a beautiful scent to your home.

After you have handpicked your items, all that is left to do is arrange the items on the table in a way that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Finally, don’t forget to dust and polish the table regularly to keep it looking its best.
