Create show stopping focal points in your home with our top Sideboard styling tips.
Have you ever looked through the pages of magazines and wondered how the stylists make furniture look so good – is there a secret science to creating that effortlessly stylish look? The answer is yes. With a little insider info direct from the Danetti Stylists, we’ll show you how it’s done. Creating a perfectly styled sideboard!
At first glance this looks like a really beautiful simple shot of a white sideboard, but it’s no accident how casually grouped it looks – it’s all planned! This arrangement is particularly interesting as it is styled up on one side.
So, how come it doesn’t look lopsided? It’s all to do with the careful balance of accessories and so visually it looks equally weighted. White sculptural forms with soft rounded edges grouped loosely in three’s work beautifully together and set the scene for the eye trickery!
What does that mean? Well, it’s quite simple! A cascading ivy takes the eye from the low left hand side and slowly rises along the surface to the top of the taller plant and the picture frames. Your eye is never too distracted as the grey tones of the prints and the candles blend gently into the otherwise all white scheme – easy!

Family living is often vibrant and fun with bursts of colour but sometimes lots of clutter! Danetti have created this wonderful Glide sideboard in collaboration with Julia Kendell to allow ample concealed space within the sideboard itself . Allowing you to create a stylish surface on top.
So how does this one work? Well again there is a careful planning to this stylish arrangement. Firstly the grouping of three accessories on one side add varying heights to one side. Then adding wide bowl on the other side helps balance the tall group and combine beautifully with the sideboard and other accessories. All the while subtly combining all the colours used elsewhere – simple!

Its much harder to create a fresh look on a wooden surface than on white furniture. Wood is a wonderful material but the grain can create quite a distraction and is a focal point in its own right.
So, how can you lighten up the look of wood and blend the accessories? The stylists at Danetti have created this look to accentuate the warm tones of the Walnut Assi sideboard. By choosing some soft aubergine and chocolate coloured glass vases compliment the warmth of the walnut. Then we’ve blended the coloured glass with white pots and monochrome prints. By using lots of greenery and a copper tray for the grouping on the left hand side to sit on we tie the entire look together.
Why does the tray help? Well, using a darker tray helps to bridge the colour and warmth gap between the white sculptural pots and the rich wood tones helping to blend the colours and textures so that it looks pleasing and not too harsh.
