Decorating & Furniture/how to decorate a small table in my bedroom


Hi Jennifer, I have this small table that is just sitting in one corner of my bedroom and all it has on it is an empty 10 gal. aquarium. Its about 23in wide and 26.5in tall. I dont want to get rid of it becuase if i do I'll have a bare corner. Please help me decide on how to decorate it. P.S. My room is based on an indian and forest animal theme,and the colors i have used in it are red, black, and gold.  Thank You.

Hi Blake,

Thanks for your question.  With a table this size, I'd opt for multiples of 3's to decorate it.  Use either 3 or 6 objects that coordinate with your theme, i.e.; start with a tall vase of flowers (specifically greenery or all one color flower) OR a lamp (for height); add an animal figurine, and an object like a small stump covered with moss or a shiny rock.  If you want six objects, add accordingly.  It will be beautiful and functional.

Visit my web site at: Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.


College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
