beside the bed

These two photos featuring pretty nightstands caught my eye recently. I really like seeing how people style these little intimate areas. Often times it seems that these little tables get forgotten when it comes to decor but they have the potential to play a big role in how the room looks and feels if styled.

Right now I'm trying to figure out what I want to do for the bedside tables in my room. I've been thinking of doing something with stacked art like this first photo but haven't found the right thing(s) to frame. Decisions, decisions, right? ;)




Tell me: What books are currently on your nightstand? I have a break in school semesters coming up and I want to read something just for the fun of it.

p.s. Thanks for your kind comments about my stripey skirt. :)

Right now I'm reading "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest", the last in the trilogy!

I love love love those two framed pieces, but I'm afraid my guy wouldn't like something so girly. This just made me think though that it would be great to do a girly side and a more manly side to be fair.

I love the double art work in the first pic. I wanted to do that in our Masters but there was such a huge wall right above the bed that it looked better to fill in that spot instead. Currently on my night stand is Tina Fey's Bossy Pants...hilarious!

My husband and I each have a nightstand, which is the Ikea three drawer dresser. They're kind of larger than the standard, but the room is spacious and could handle larger furniture. We use Ikea clear glass lamps for each. Also, we each have a piece of framed art, on little easels. Mine is a painting that my nephew made when he was little, and Joey's is a watercolor that he painted of our house. We make sure that neither gets cluttery.

I love both of those rooms!!! So pretty! I am currently reading Bethenny Frankel's new book...it's pretty inspiring!! I like that she's so real. She might be a little harsh on TV sometimes but the book is amazing regardless!!!
