Cherry NightstandCherry Nightstand

Embrace your whimsical side and opt for a chair as your night table. This look works particularly well when just one side of a bed has room for a nightstand — though it also looks adorable when you double up with chairs on both sides of the bed. Tip: For added interest select a chair that has a different texture from the other textiles in the room. For instance you might choose velvet against silk. It's also fun to choose a color that is different from but coordinates with the other colors in the room as in this bedroom. Add a hard tray or book on top of the seat of your chair to create a sturdy surface for your bedside knickknacks.

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.

Dresser or chest. Rather than restricting your night-table furniture to the small or low profile you might go bold with a relatively large piece of furniture like a dresser or chest of drawers. This can provide much-needed extra storage particularly in a narrow bedroom. The key with a larger piece is to create balance. When the bed is placed in the middle of the wall add another large piece of furniture to the other side; a second dresser or a desk typically will work. Be sure both pieces are similar in height and width to create a more symmetrical look. Adding lamps of the same height on either side of the bed can add to the harmonious effect when your night tables don't match. Tip: If you opt for two different lamps and they are not exactly the same height place one or two books beneath the shorter lamp to give it the extra height.

Lovely lavender. Light-to-medium purple shades are thought to ease our stress levels. If you could use a relaxing atmosphere in your bedroom give a lavender or lilac hue a try. I suggest sticking to a shade that is fairly pure or saturated rather than one with an abundance of gray in it. A heavily grayed-out purple or lavender can feel gloomy especially on overcast days.
