Aghna Mairenn. Bedroom Nightstand. November 14th , 2017.
Fresh romantic. Pure linen sheets or pillow shams, flowing white curtains and fresh flowers are musts for this look. Practicing a bit of restraint will keep it from veering into froufrou territory — a bit of a ruffle perhaps, but skip the floral prints. Walls painted a pale minty green provide a soothing backdrop.
Savor and relax. Imagine doing a few gentle stretches or yoga poses before bed, lighting a scented candle and sipping some chamomile tea while you write in your journal. There are no to-do lists or pinging phones vying for your attention. You can simply be. Imagine how easy it would be to gradually unwind, release the tension of your day and ease into a restful, deep, restorative sleep in a space free of clutter and distractions. Once the busyness of the day is done, make time to simply relax in your newly cleared space. Take action: Once your bedroom is clean and clutter-free, pick and choose from the list below to enhance your space and get a better night's sleep: Use a linen spray or essential-oil diffuser with a relaxing scent like lavender or rose, keep a small vase of fresh flowers on your nightstand, do a few gentle stretches or yoga poses to help release the tensions of the day, take a warm bath with essential oils before bed, sip a cup of herbal tea and write in your journal, gradually dim the lights in your bedroom an hour before bed, ending with just a single candle before blowing it out and going to sleep.
Let's focus on pendant placement and style at the bedside, an important and often-overlooked space. Consider lighting up your bedside with a pendant-style fixture instead of a table lamp. It's a bit edgy, yet it's practical because of all the floor or table space it frees up.
Some desks are just larger and wider versions of a night table. The flat surface of a desk can house a lamp, books and other nighttime necessities. If you have enough space, add a chair to create a dual-duty nightstand that also serves as a workspace. Tip: If your bed is placed in the middle of the wall and you add a desk on one side, be sure to put another piece of furniture that's at least the height of the mattress on the other side. And use lamps of the same height — they don't need to be the same style — on both pieces of furniture. These things will prevent the room from looking too furniture-heavy on one side.
