Say Goodbye to the Bedroom in a Box

When I was coming up with décor ideas for the master bedroom at Park Meridian, I was really excited to think outside of the box when it came to mixing up furnishing ideas. I am a big proponent of avoiding “sets”. Don’t get me wrong, I have seen some gorgeous bedroom sets in my day and have purchased plenty of pieces. If you can pull it off, go for it. But I love the look and feel of breaking things up and incorporating some unique finds.

Case in point – nightstands. I decided to go completely unconventional with a Butler Tray Stand and a small Bar Cart.


Totally different in style, but they both share the common theme of gold trimmings. If you’ll notice, the heights do not match up perfectly.  To fix that, I used accessories to balance the heights and fool the brain into thinking things were symmetrical on both ends. You can find more Tall Butler Tray Stands here at West Elm. The gold Bar Cart is a beauty from last spring's line at Target.
