There’s been quite a stir in the interior décor trends, and it’s mostly to do with Scandinavian inspiration. It’s not difficult to see why considering they have a philosophy transformed into quality of living space, with the focus on comfort.
When you start inviting more of the Scandinavian interior design in your abode, you can consider yourself a fan of minimalism immediately. Yes, even if you’ve been a staunch believer that minimalism isn’t your thing, Scandinavian designs are sure to convince you otherwise. With me it happened with a contemporary nightstand, the indispensable item in terms of storage and style.
Nightstands are so underrated in the bedroom interior. Sure, the choice of mattress is important (duh, quality sleep!), but so is what’s right next to both of the bedsides. When I was at the beginning of becoming a Scandinavian interior style fan, I had the idea of a pure bedroom, the kind of sanctuary stripped of items I could so easily do without, and as you can imagine nightstands weren’t part of the ideal picture.
As bright as my bedroom looked, it still felt like something was missing, and it was; as soon as I came across the contemporary nightstand, and the numerous ideas on how to decorate and fill one up, I knew it was time to bring its charms in my sleep sanctuary.
Where there was one, there came two, and along with improving the aesthetics (they’re white and amplify the brightness), this addition gave the balance my room needed.
Whether you like nightstands or not, you must have them. They are versatile pieces that have plenty to offer in design, as you can find them in many styles, colours, and sizes. The option to add some decorating pieces of your own means you can also count on the nightstands being your pieces ideal for customising.
What the nightstands have helped me with is saving me from trips to the kitchen for a glass of water, allowing me to write down my thoughts, shopping list ideas, and inspirational quotes without forgetting them, and giving me the chance to create a habit of moisturising my face regularly every night.
There’s also plenty of room for table lamps, my favourite souvenirs from my recent trip around Europe (inspiring me for more travelling), books that help me relax and call it a day, magazines I like to inspire myself with for more interior changes, and of course the space for my electronics.
