How To: Style a Nightstand

Do you ever look at magazines or blogs and go, “Man, I wonder how they got that bedroom to look like that”? Welcome to my life. For the better part of a year, I’ve been on a design hunt. I’ve read all the home decor blogs, purchased magazines like Domino and Martha Stewart Living, and have even gotten design books. Needless to say, I love a well put together room. It may take a while to make it all look cohesive, but the final product is so worth it.

A nightstand can tell a lot about you…the books you like to read, the flowers you like, the scents you enjoy, the type of art that drives you.

* Some type of floral piece

You want something short, tall, and medium. Personally, I’m always weary of covering my art, but this actually adds depth to your nightstand and make it look like this:



Other items to keep on your nightstand:

*Something sentimental

*Something colorful

* Oddly shaped items
