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.
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.Cupcakes and Cashmere (via)This is a great use for vintage suitcases. Love the pastel colors and the mirror used as a tray on top.Susk and Banoo (via)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?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.Amy Meier Design (via)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.Pinterest (via)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.Pinterest (via)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.Apartment Therapy (via)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. This content is provided by Design Shuffle, where you can find and share talented interior designs from from
