Hi sincerely, cecelia readers, Jessie here from Sweet Thing. What you keep on your nightstand can be very telling as to who you are and the things that are important to you. I like to be surrounded by sentimental photos, literature and a little bit of nature and my nightstand reflects that.
I purchased my nightstands about eight years ago from Ballard Designs. I love the antique, chinoiserie look paired with my modern platform bed from West Elm.
A series of three Polaroids taken by my friend as part of her wedding save the dates hang next to each other. The Polaroids were taken in Ojai, CA. my home town and I love their dreamy, romantic quality. A strip of photo booth photos of my boyfriend and I from a trip to NYC also hangs near my bed. I like to look at the photo strip first thing in the morning and before bed, to remind me of the trip where we first fell in love.
On top of my nightstand I have a simple yet fun lamp from Urban Outfitters. I found these lamps on sale a few years ago and I quickly snatched them up. They bring a little modern pop next to my vintage first edition book by Anais Nin (a gift from my boyfriend). A sandalwood candle from Anthropologie makes my room smell amazing and a vase of hydrangeas from my front yard brighten my day. There is almost nothing that gives me more happiness then waking up to fresh flowers.
Underneath I like to stack books I am reading and plan to read along with latest fashion and shelter magazines giving me inspiration.
Have a sweet day! Jessie xx
