I had a whirlwind weekend in Austin, TX and after coming home yesterday evening, I couldn’t imagine a more appropriate post than one about my bedside. No matter how comfortable and luxurious my hotel room is, I just can’t ever get the same quality of sleep when travelling that I can in my own bed. Needless to say, I’m paying the price today for those late (and very fun) nights out with my girls!
But I digress, let’s get back to the bedside… While in our hotel, I took mental notes of all of the details that made our suite so special. One of the things that stood out was the use of reflective surfaces in the bedroom area. Little touches of glass, mirror and crystal that caught the sunlight and exploded into mini glints of sparkle that danced around the room. I would love to recreate something like that in my own home and add a little touch of femininity to my predominately grey and somewhat masculine, bedroom space.
On my flight home, I started browsing through home design magazines to get additional design inspiration. Below are some of the “research” results:
The combination of mirrors, crystal pendant lighting and crystal accents on the nightstand just add the perfect amount of sparkle to an otherwise dark and moody space.
Coincidentally, I actually own the dresser being used as a nightstand in this photo, as well as the nail-head headboard. I may have to scout out those clover mirrors ASAP!
I am in love with the clean lines of those mirrored nightstands!
How thoughtful was the choice of circular frames in this one? They tie in perfectly with the nightstand knobs, as well as the curves of the lamps.
These square mirrors seem to add such a lightness to an otherwise visually heavy graphic pattern.
Abracadabra! Add a large mirrored wall and all of a sudden your average sized room looks enormous!
So, in addition to unpacking, grocery shopping and catching up on my life- now add mirrored bedside update to my list!
What makes your bedside special? I would love to hear!
