Although I mentioned not wanting to buy expensive art to get tripped over, I have no problem with it being displayed on the wall. The piece shown in this image is so gorgeous and really sets the mood for the room. Nightstand space comes at a premium. Books, clocks and phones all vie for room. Bedding is expensive, especially once you find the perfect duvet, pillow shams, throw pillows and so on. I've often thought of a neutral color scheme as being boring and safe. When I think of custom drapery, my mind often envisions heavy fabric overpowering a room. Area rugs are often used to tie a space together. I love how this rug is the room's focal point. Generally speaking, most nightstands are round or square. Who says you have to follow those rules?

While many dressing tables are fussy, frilly or just too girly for my taste, here I've gathered some of my favorite modern‐looking dressing tables to share with you. Whether you're planning to set up a dressing table in your bedroom, in the bathroom or nearby, these ideas will surely inspire your space. If you're on the lookout for a dressing table and crave sleek lines, the deco design of the table shown here, with its wood finish and simple design, speaks to those of us with a modern taste. This dressing table in a room adjacent to the bedroom is glamorous without being fussy. If you're considering using a similar setup for your dressing area, painting the two spaces the same color will unify the rooms. If you crave color, consider purchasing an older dressing table and painting it to fit your needs. If a matching chair isn't included in the deal, buy one that fits well with the table and paint it to match. The gorgeous natural light in this bathroom makes it the perfect space for a small dressing table. Medicine cabinet–style mirrors above the dressing table provide storage and give this dressing table a built‐in look. A dressing table chair is the perfect place for a nice, bright splash of color. If your prefer to keep things monochromatic, upholstering the dressing table chair in the same shade as the wall will make a simple statement.

One of the most enjoyable pastimes when visiting someone else's home is rummaging through their book collection. Whether you have a full wall of shelving or a slender cabinet or case, stock it with a variety of reading material that appeals to all tastes: mysteries, bestsellers, nonfiction, short stories and more. Don't forget to add bedside lamps or reading lights, as well as a cushy spot in which to curl up. A folding luggage stand. This hotel‐inspired touch saves guests from having to squat all the way to the floor to rifle through their suitcases. Stash it in the closet when you're not expecting company or leave it open as a design detail. Here it takes the place of a bench at the foot of the bed. Piles of pillows. Some like them flat, some like them fluffy. Some prefer down, while others sneeze at the mere thought. Keep an assortment of pillows on hand to satisfy guests' individual tastes. And while you're at it, invest in a couple of good blankets (one light, one heavy) and the best bed linens you can afford. Hooks and hangers. Unlike you, your guests don't have a designated spot in your home to tuck away purses and hang car keys. Make it easy for them by mounting hooks and wall racks (might we suggest the Eames Hang‐It‐All?). And make sure that there are plenty of coat hangers in a closet or an armoire.

When there's ample shelving and storage elsewhere in the house, it can make more sense to keep things simple around the fireplace. The single shelf in this living room is enough to add some chic coastal style with accessories.

Hotels know this and add a beautifully wrapped chocolate on the bedside table for that personal touch. The bedside table can tell a lot about a person. I love decorating these spaces because they are so personal. Bedside tables are important because they're the last thing you see when turning in for the night and the first thing you see when you wake. These small, intimate spaces have to pack a visual punch, by adding color and texture. At the same time they serve practical needs, like holding our alarm clocks and eyeglasses. They come in all shapes and sizes, different colors and styles. I've been asked many times about accessorizing these spaces. Here are some ideas for what I call the bedside vignette or, in simple terms, nightstands and the stuff we put on them. This is the area where you can really make a statement with lamps. I find that square lampshades, or round lampshades that are 14 inches or less in diameter, work best against a wall. Drawers are always great for storing things you need but don't want to get up for. I love this alternative lighting detail instead of a table lamp. A hanging chandelier on either side of the bed provides beautiful symmetry and frees the nightstand for other personal accessories. A pendant works just as well as a chandelier visually. The light wattage is lower, though, so I suggest using a pendant light in combination with can lighting. Stacked books look great with their colorful binding facing the room and are also good for elevating alarm clocks. This beautiful vignette is perfectly balanced with a lamp, family photos, fresh flowers and a candle.

She wants a bedroom that makes a statement as loud and clear as she does herself. Her eye is honed for unusual finds, like a fabulous antique headboard and a classic Louis chair stamped with a face and splashed in lime green. An eclectic space gets her creative juices flowing. Creating an impact is second nature to the diva. A room almost entirely in hot pink? The diva does not hesitate to approve a bold color scheme. In fact, why would she stop at the walls? The diva never goes halfway – she ensures that the ceiling is in on the act, too. A diva knows that a room in all black exudes edgy drama, so you'd better believe she is all for it. The diva knows the talents and ways of the past can teach her multitudes, so she is no stranger to antiques. She mixes them in accordingly, proud of her one‐of‐a‐kind finds.The diva travels all over the world, so she is not about to have a bedroom without an incredible view. If she's a superdiva, she likely has several of these bedrooms with a view in all sorts of spectacular places.

After attending approximately 30 weddings in the last couple of years, I'm approaching the baby‐boom stage of life. And with that come nursery inquires from friends. No matter what anyone's style, age or lifestyle is, I recommend Jenny Lind–style cribs and beds. Their whimsical spool detailing can easily work in a traditional, transitional or eclectic home. A white Jenny Lind crib pops against the nursery's purple flat‐panel wainscoting. Pink paisley pairs with white Jenny Lind single beds to create the bedroom of every little girl's dreams. Thanks to its simple design, Jenny Lind furniture is easy to pair with vibrant patterns. The white crib, chain‐link rug and whimsical Roman shade fabric in this nursery prove just that. A pair of Jenny Lind single beds contributes to the vintage feel of this sporty bedroom. With customized bunting, a white Jenny Lind crib, a pouf and a butterfly mobile, Parker's nursery is bursting with personality. The functional Jenny Lind trundle acts as an extra bed for sleepovers. Featuring Delta's Jenny Lind crib, this nursery is brimming with charm. Stark white bedding makes a contrasting statement as it dresses a classic navy Jenny Lind crib.
