More often than not, I find myself working in bed into all hours of the night.  And as you know, I take the definition of “my space” very seriously, so having a proper nightstand for those #GSD, late-night hours is no exception.  Combining form and function, my nightstand houses all of my must-haves within arm’s reach, while still holding to the rest of the bedroom’s design.  So whether you’re burning the midnight oil or starting your week off on a fresh start, enjoy your space with these seven nightstand essentials. Truly, MKR

No. One.  A great lamp.  This one from Times Two Design is a great example of a lamp that ties the room together, while offering the most perfect subtle pop of gold.  Not to mention, the jagged quartz is just glam enough to balance out the rustic feel of the wood nightstand.

No. Two.  A carafe for water.  Using a carafe eliminates any unsightly plastic bottles, while allowing me to have plenty of water close by without running up and downstairs to the kitchen.

No. Three.  Fresh flowers.  While I know fresh flowers can be a splurge, they are worth every penny because of the pure joy they bring me.  This extra touch can easily boost your mood and bring a little more pretty to the start (and end) of your day.  To save money choose flowers that will naturally last longer like hydrangeas, tulips, and wild flowers.  Make sure to clip the bottoms and change the water daily to lengthen their life.

No. Four.  A candle.  And this candle not only smells heavenly, it can be enjoyed long after its burning days are done holding makeup brushes on a vanity, pens and pencils on a desk, etc. 

No. Five.  Notebooks.  You never know when inspiration will strike, and since I’m always working in bed, that happens a lot bedside.  These notebooks from Minnie & Emma are the perfect size, and I keep my drawer stocked and ready to go.

No. Six.  A bowl full of necessities.  At any given time, I’ll reach for one of the following: chapstick, hand cream, Advil or essential oils.  My favorite bowl serves as a pretty place to store it all.

No. Seven.  Trinket tray.  I hate sleeping in any jewelry, so I need a place to corral it all and keep it safe.  These bestselling trays are the perfect size to do just that.
