Its time to style your bedside table beautiful with a stylish vignette.  Today I have some tips and inspiration on how to create a designer vignette on your bedside table that you will love.

Size & Proportion

When shopping for a new bedside table, take the height measurements of your bed with you.  Choosing a bedside table that is the same height or slightly taller than the top of your mattress is considered a general rule to go by.

If you are looking for some extra storage, choose a bedside table with drawers or some space to place a storage basket underneath.  Having the extra storage with drawers will help you to keep your bedside table clutter free and looking beautiful all the time.

Add colour and interest to your bedside table with a bright lamp base or lamp shade.  Check that the height of your lamp is suitable for reading in bed or give your current lamp a makeover with a new shade.

Artwork & Books

Look for something you love, frame a favourite photo or greeting card or a favourite paining you found on your travels.  You can buy some beautiful cards and they often make inexpensive beautifully framed pieces of artwork and they are the perfect size.

Add a few carefully chosen decor pieces to your bedside table.  Keep it simple, I like to decorate in groups of three next to my bedside table.  Flowers, lamp and my favourite perfume.

Change your styled bedside table often, and change out the perfume for a decorative jewellery box or small tray.

Colour and texture can be added to your bedside table with a beautiful bunch of flowers.  Whether you hand pick them from the garden or spoil yourself with a fresh bunch of flowers from your local florist.

If you don’t have much room available, use a bud vase to make a smaller posy, or just add some greenery.  Style your bedside table beautiful for the week ahead.
