Keep-ing + Zhush-ing

coffee table styling, home decor accessories and accents, zhush

When it comes to home decor, coffee table styling (zhushing) is one of my favorite things to do.  The photo above (from the look book) illustrates this passion of mine perfectly. To me, it’s all about the art of self expression through books, art and a few well chosen accessories.  To read more about this, please head over to, where I’ve recently signed on as a Keeper for this fun and highly addictive site and be sure to check out my blog post, entitled “How To Style The Perfect Coffee Table.” (You can also check out my related “keeps” here).  Go on and give Keep a try, it’s a really well done visual marketplace with an abundance of great ideas and inspiration.

    Love updating my apartment by restyling my coffee table/mantel/etc. I am in love with the wooden coffee table in the first photo above. The modified herringbone inlay is beautiful! Could you please link to where you found it? Thanks!

  3. Hi Kim, Thanks so much, it's from a local store, Lillian August, and I believe that they refer to it as a bricklayer's table.
