Nightstand Styling Ideas for Every Taste
The nightstand can be one of the most stylish, well-kept assets of the bedroom. Or, it can fall into a disarray of clutter that prevents you from getting to that much-needed REM cycle. We’ve figured out the best ways to design your bedside table for maximum relaxation and calm. The winning essentials are flowers (preferably fluffy peonies or elegant roses), a reading lamp, and an überchic candle that’s just as effective when it’s not lit. Notice what’s not included below? Any sort of blue-light digital device. Keep those screens away from your resting place. Research shows that you get a better night’s sleep if you finish all iGadget time an hour before bed.

Plants in the bedroom? Yes, please! We love the idea of forgoing the standard flower bouquet in lieu of potted greenery. We think you can get extra-creative when it comes to curating a collection of ceramic plant holders. Keep it monochrome, and focus on texture if you’d like a subtle array of pieces.
We love a full-on whiteout when it comes to the bedroom. A white-on-white bed is like an invitation to jump on a cloud and, when paired with a white nightstand, simply irresistible. We love how you can add pops of color with seasonal flowers or chrome accents.
When pink ranunculus and Diptyque candles are involved, the answer is always yes. We love the idea of using dessert plates as a catchall for jewelry, lip balm, glasses, and the like. And keeping a stack of books by the bed is great for bedtime reading and prop styling.
There is something so sleek about a dark wood nightstand, especially when paired with white accessories like a lamp or alarm clock. The mix of masculine darkness with bright feminine accents gives this combo an androgynous sophistication.
