Orin Rivka. Bedroom Nightstand. November 25th , 2017.
The nightstand next to your bed is one of the most essential surfaces in your bedroom. It provides a home for books, photo frames and sleepy-time necessities like eye masks and earplugs. Most of us opt for the classic version: a small square table with a drawer and a matching counterpart on the other side of the bed. But this functional area doesn't have to be so, well, square. Swapping out that classic nightstand for a piece of non-bedroom furniture can add personality as well as function to your bedroom. Here are unique alternatives to the classic nightstand. The best part about these options? They are common enough pieces that you may already have them on hand. If not, you'll be able to pick them up for a reasonable price at a garage sale or flea market.
Orange above. If you prefer to wake up with a happy jolt, try a bold orange-gold color on the ceiling. An orange ceiling will intensify the blue of the skies outside as blue and orange are complementary colors. With such a strong color on the ceiling, I'd go with light and warm neutrals for the walls and trim.
Refined feminine. Crisp black and white stripes paired with soft misty blue create a chic, elegant look that is easy to love. Keep accessories pared down and simple, with favorite bags and jewelry on display and a few simply framed art prints on the wall. Bring in delicious texture with a cuddly mohair throw and smooth sateen sheets.
A nice way to mix and match furnishings is to unify them with a common hue. In this space, the lamps differ in height and style, but the color green is what allows them to "speak" to each other. On either side of this bed, you'll see that the nightstands and artwork are different. However, equity is created because the height on both sides is the same. This type of symmetry is not always necessary, but visual balance does help to make a room feel more comfortable for some people.
