Monday Morning Inspiration: Consoles+Benches

 Happy Monday, lovelies!  Today for my Monday morning inspiration I wanted to share with you one of my favorite interior decor looks- a console table with a bench or a few benches underneath.  

I love how benches or stools add such balance by filling in the "white space" underneath a console.  Opting for a bold pattern or fabric can liven up a standard black, brown or white console and give a space a little personality.

Having small benches underneath a table or console can also add functionality.  If you need extra seating when friends are over, simply pull out these benches and wa-la!  2 instant extra seats.  How fun are these snakeskin benches?


I loved this look so much I did it in my first-floor entryway. My friend, Alexis, gave me the initial inspiration.  What do you think?

I am very excited to tell you my mom and I gave the X benches pictured here a makeover. We painted, refinished, and recovered the seats with this ikat fabric.  I'm a sucker for ikat prints. I promise to post a tutorial soon.  I really love the finished product!  

How was your weekend?  What's keeping you inspired this week?
