Thanks to PopSugar for picking this picture of my guest room’s nightstand off of Instagram and featuring it as bedroom inspiration on their site.

Living in a small home means maximizing storage potential.  This nightstand by Sunpan affords a decent amount of room, especially in a vertical capacity.  (Thus, the stacks upon stacks.)  However, I didn’t want to just shove books in this open, clearly visible space.  So, I added decorative objects: a watercolor eye miniature by my sister (which I’ve since moved to my gallery wall)  and a smoky quartz specimen on a brass stand.  The goal was to achieve a styled look.

I guess PopSugar thinks I pulled it off.  This made my day!  Follow me on Instagram for more posts like this.
