what's on your nightstand: susi of design shuffle

today susi of design shuffle is putting a fun, new spin on the nightstand series!
thank you design shuffle for guest blogging this week!
 
Hi everyone, I’m Susi and I write as a guest blogger for DesignShuffle.com, 
a fabulous social media site that promotes interior designers and their work 
from around the world. My writing focuses on things I'm passionate about: 
interior design, decorating ideas,  home furnishings, gardening, travel and art. 
I get to look at gorgeous things all day and write about them. I'm a very lucky girl!

Thanks for inviting me and Design Shuffle to visit your blog, Cecelia. 
Like you, I have a simple wood nightstand. Mine is currently piled with summer 
reading and a vintage lamp.  So I was inspired to go looking for unexpected 
nightstands to see what clever ideas people had come up with to replace the basic 
nightstand.  I love some of these ideas, I hope you love them too.
 
Enjoy!
 
Unexpected Nightstands Swiss Miss (via)
In a tight space, a floating shelf and pendant light make the perfect 
nightstand alternative. The floating shelf doesn’t take up any floor space either. Love the large pulley holding the light.

This is a great use for vintage suitcases. Love the pastel colors and the mirror used as a tray on top.

Can you guess what this is? It’s a dentist cabinet with a white marble top. 
Love the blue color. A great repurposed piece for holding books, sleep mask, ear plugs… whatever you need. 
From dentist's office to interior design—who knew?
Unexpected Nightstands The Painted Hive (via)
A chest of drawers makes for a swell nightstand if you have the space next to the bed. 
Just make sure the chest of drawers isn’t too tall.

A demilune console table makes for an elegant bedside table. Not sure 
if this would hold all my books but it would be great for a guest room to hold a carafe of water, a clock and a lamp.

A Parsons desk makes for a smart nightstand alternative with extra surface space and drawers for storage. 
Could be used as a desk or vanity as well as a nightstand.

For the minimalist bedroom design, painted white Moroccan stools can replace bulky nightstands. 
Love the pendant lights that provide light but don’t take up any horizontal space.

This birdhouse/bookholder/nightstand is my favorite for creativity and form meets function. 
A place for a glass of water, your glasses and the book you are reading… all cleverly designed. Love it.

I liked the idea of the floating shelf. The suitcase reminded me of an ottoman which one of my friend made.He stuck some cushions on top of the suitcase and gave some spray paints on the side. LOL An ottoman is ready.

The pendant light is a very clever idea. I totally love it. It fits just right in the bedroom.
