We were flipping through the latest HGTV Magazine and in their ‘fun decorating’ section they featured gourd lamps saying that you can count on them for decorating any space and we agree! These fun and colorful lamps can brighten up any space! They give the space more texture and flow as well. The lamp’s odd, gourd shapes aren’t like those traditional table lamps and will give your guest something they can’t overlook. You can find gourd shape lamps in all shapes, sizes and colors. We tossed our Jamie Young Gourd Table Lamp into the mix to show you just that. Pick up the Jamie Young Gourd Lamp Here.

Tuesday’s Tip From The Pros
One element of the bedroom that we feel that gets overlooked quite often is the nightstand. Everyone focuses on the bed, bed frame and headboards and forgets about it. I don’t know about you, but my nightstand is a lifesaver and has helped out in numerous ways. We want to cover everything in the bedroom so there’s no way we were gonna leave this little guy out. We’re gonna show you a few different design elements and decor pieces that will make your nightstand complete.
Nightstands come in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles. There’s no limit to what you can put next to your bed and use as your nightstand. You can go with a basic nightstand table like the Mendocino Table or you can go with a more traditional nightstand that has a drawer like the Mandalay Nightstand. Want to get a little more creative? No problem! You can try stacking vintage trunks or use an accent side table with a round top like the Somerville Side Table shown above. It’s all up to you and your style. You can really bring the space together when you find a nightstand that’s the right fit for your bedroom. Looks aren’t always everything though and functionality plays a part too. Don’t get us wrong, you’re nightstand needs to be cute and show that you have good style and taste, but if you’re going to need to a little more space or storage out of your nightstand then sometimes a simple side table won’t cut it. Think about the use and abuse your nightstand will endure while trying to find the right one. It’s out there! You’ve just gotta look!
A nightstand is incomplete without a lamp on it or extremely close to it, like a floor lamp hanging over it acing like a table lamp. They not only serve aesthetic purposes, but they bring more light into the space. What good is all that hard work put into decorating if it can’t even be seen? Exactly. Most importantly the nightstand lamp gives you light right where you want it. It allows you to get cozy and read your favorite book or browse through the latest issue or Coastal Living or Elle Decor. If you’re more of an in bed reader look at lamps that will enable you to do so and make it easier to give you accessible light at night like our Paris Desk Lamp. If you already have your nook setup in the corner of your room and enjoy reading there then the Jamie Young French Bottle Lamp will give you that perfect touch of light in your bedroom and look great on your nightstand.
Call it old fashion, but I like to have an alarm clock on my nightstand. Yes, my phone is right there and has the same functions, if not more, but something about alarm clocks make me feel at home and nostalgic. Cell phones with built in alarms weren’t always around and I’ve had them fail on me a number of times. Alarm clocks also bring in a fun design element too. You can find cute ones that have a great vintage style like the Ritz Alarm Clock or if you’re into digital ones you can go that route too. Either way we like alarm clocks on our nightstand.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t mind waking up to familiar faces smiling back at me in the morning. That’s why we love putting picture frames with loved ones on our nightstand. They also add a personal touch so your bedroom doesn’t feel like it’s in a stuffy magazine or like it’s a hotel room. The Boatwood Frame will add a touch of coastal decor without taking away from any picture you want to frame in it. It’s not the only frame we have though, you can check them all out Here.
There are so many fun accessories and things you can add to your nightstand. You can go as crazy as you want and try to fit as much as possible on your nightstand. Or you can keep it clean and simple and only keep the necessities on your nightstand. It’s all up to you. Add some shells, store your books or have fresh flowers that will make your space smell wonderful. Nightstands are not only there to look good, but they’re there to help. So take advantage of them!
