Is your bedside table a dumping ground for the day’s pocket change, papers, and clutter? Ease yourself into a sweet night’s sleep with a clutter-free bedside table that expresses your style. According to Organic Authority, every element in your bedroom should be devoted to replenishing your energy—and that includes everything that’s on your bedside table! Check out these three chic and creative ways to decorate your nightstand. Which one matches your style the best? Bring it home!
1 | For the Black & Gold Fashionista
You’re the type of the girl that can’t say “No” to glitter! (Trust me, this is a good thing!) Keep your nightstand clean by giving yourself plenty of storage options, like we did with these stackable black and white storage boxes. We kept the metallic theme going with a glitterific mirrored frame, and a mercury glass lamp stacked on a couple of books.
Pro Tip: Use objects that vary in height and size. Use stacks of books to get variation in height!
2 | For the Shabby Chic Minimalist
This nightstand style is crisp and feminine, with nods to nature in the table’s subtle distressing, the wood slice underneath the bowl of succulents, and the abundance of plant life! Replicate this nightstand style in your bedroom with a natural toned bedside table, a glass/silver lamp, and a single potted plant.
3 | For the Eclectic World Traveler
Your interests in life are infinite, and so are your décor tastes! Make a bedside statement with a bright and colorful nightstand. Pair it with a contrasting lamp, a textured frame (the frame below is leather), and an icon or two to remind you of your travels.
