…don’t get too “matchy matchy”.
We’ve all been there – that big box furniture store where the deals are “amazing” and you can’t pass up getting those concrete Benchtops for $799! Wow. You think that seems like a great deal, but once you get them all in your bedroom you’re surrounded by these furniture pieces that all look the same. Sure they match, but where’s the personality in that?
Whenever I’m designing a room, I make sure there is an element of surprise. Something a little different, something a little special. This can easily be achieved starting with your bedside tables.
If you have matching bedside tables now, swap one out for an old refinished cabinet (I just met with a client last week who did this – love it!), or glass side table with metal accents, or a mirrored chest of drawers, or maybe even a small writing desk!
This fun and easy interior design tip can easily be achieved by anyone! Adding a new tv that comes out of bed can make the whole bedroom have a different cozy vibe. You may already have a small piece of furniture in your home or an old set of luggage that could easily be converted into a bedside table. If not, head to your local thrift store. They are filled with used furniture with tons of personality – throw a new coat of paint on it in one of your favorite shades and you’ve got yourself a custom side table!

I love the mismatch look. It adds a little character and personality to the room.

Love that first ledge-like bedside table. And yes, matchy-matchy is a no-no.
PS – When are we hanging out again?!?
What great bedrooms. I'd take any of them!
