Winter weather makes going to bed a pleasure, while at the same time, it can make it tough sometimes to get get out of bed. With the perfect bedside essentials from Wayfair, going to bed after a busy day and waking up in the morning can be a delight. 

Every bed deserves to be surrounded by the perfect bedside essentials.

The bedroom is a sanctuary. It’s a place to seek refuge, rest, and relaxation. It’s important to surround yourself with items that help achieve a sense of serenity and happiness. With the help of Wayfair, I was able to add some beautiful bedside essentials to our master bedroom creating a feeling of comfort and peace.

Whether it’s beautiful bedside lamps, comfy throw pillows, or wonderfully scented candles, the items you surround yourself with in the bedroom can help make you feel relaxed and safe. 

Let the light shine bright.

Table lamps are essential to any bedside. They help provide light while reading before bed, to help find slippers on the floor, and assist when checking to make sure the alarm is set.

From an interior design perspective, table lamps visually anchor either side of the bed. These gorgeous Austell table lamps come in a set of two which make them the perfect bedside additions for a bedroom with two nightstands. If there is only one nightstand in the bedroom, the second lamp can be used on the top of a dresser.

I love the combination of the modern design and traditional detailing of the table lamps. The antique bronze finish of the metal ties in perfectly with our iron bed. At the same time, the curved glass base makes the lamps feel light and airy. The details of the lamp base along with the empire lampshade make these lamps a wonderful choice for any aesthetic.   

Surrounded by love.

Beautiful reminders of family and friends are a great way to begin and end each day. Photographs of loved ones in frames are always a sweet touch to any bedside table.  Picture frames that complement the look and feel of a room become the perfect accent pieces.

I chose an engraved floral wood picture frame to display a photo of me and my husband on my bedside table. The beautiful mango wood nicely complements the nightstand and the pretty floral engraving is the perfect feminine touch to my side of the bed.

A fresh look.

Indoor plants and flowers always add a fresh look to any room. Not only do they look beautiful and add a pop of color, but plants also have relaxing and stimulating psychological effects. Whether fresh or faux, plants make great additions to any space including the bedroom. They can be added to bedside tables, dressers, or shelves.

The artificial succulent in a decorative vase is the perfect addition to my husband’s bedside table. The green leaves of the plant provided a pop of fresh color to his side of the bed. At the same time, the decorative vase adds lovely texture. 

Comfy and Cozy.

Throw pillows are a wonderful way to add a comfy, cozy, and dreamy feel to any bedroom. They are also a great way to bring out accent colors in a bedroom through solids or prints. Throw pillows are perfect for adding texture to a space through knits, weaves, and/or ruffles.  They also dimension by layering them on the bed.

Using the design rule of grouping in odd numbers, I added three beautiful throw pillows to our bed. The neutral floral pillow covers are perfect for transitioning from winter into spring. The shades of beige, cream, and grey in the soft linen fabric are a wonderful way to tie in the area rug under our bed. The beauty of pillow covers is that they can be stored easily when they are not being used.  The third, cream pillow, adds the perfect amount of texture to our bedroom thanks to the lovely weave of the fabric and the fun tassels all around the edges.  

A new flame.

Candles create a beautiful ambiance in any room. The warm glow and the intoxicating fragrance make candles the perfect bedside essential. They help provide a calming and peaceful feel to the bedroom.

This clean-burning Hope candle on my bedside table combines ground cinnamon, clove, red cedar, patchouli, fir needle, and anise. The aroma that fills the bedroom when this candle is lit instantly elicits a feeling of relaxation and rest. Exactly how you want to be feeling when you are getting ready for bed.
