How to Style a Nightstand

Wake up every morning to a beautiful and functional bedside table with these useful tips.

Every morning, wake up to a 
nightstand that reflects your personal style and needs. Use books you have lying around as a pedestal for decor, such as table lamps, photo frames, or quirky accents. Stacked books add extra height and personality to your bedside table. Pull it all together by accessorizing in odd numbers. Start with something vertical (like a tall vase), a horizontal piece (like a tray), and a sculptural accent (like this whimsical owl) to create a balanced feel.

Tip! A bedside table can be many things, such as a garden stool, pedestal table, or trunk. Just make sure the table top is similar in height to the mattress.
