How to style a nightstand

There are so many ways to style a bedside table, and really there are no rules.

Personally I like to keep bedroom decor minimal and clear. Simple can be best when it comes to a bedroom, so you’ll  rest easy with this neat and orderly table beside your bed.

However, if you aren’t sure where to begin below is a list of basic items to use that you can’t go wrong with:

– BOOKS

– ARTWORK

– A LAMP

– GREENERY

– SCENTED CANDLES / CANDELHOLDERS

Use books you have as a pedestal for decor, such as table lamps,  scented candles or a vase with greenery.

I love eucalyptus greenery, these beautiful  frosted blue green leaves fit any style and look gorgeous everywhere.

If you havent found yet  the sidetables you truly love and can afford, be creative and use books as side tables. To make the look more structured and refined keep all your book covers  in a monochromatic palette or turn the spines so you only see the pages.
