While there’s certainly nothing wrong with purchasing a set of bedroom furniture in one fell swoop, I find that this approach often leaves the boudoir lacking a certain je ne sais quoi, if you know what I mean. In order to get that quintessential “collected” vibe, you’ll likely have to do a little more legwork.
Still, I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge that sourcing items individually can feel overwhelming at best. Until now, that is. Call me Bobby Berk, because today I’m sharing seven foolproof bed and nightstand combos that will undoubtedly transform your bedroom into the stunning oasis you’ve been longing for.
1. English Country
Florals are quintessential to achieving that ever-so-charming English Country look, and this headboard manages to make it feel playful and elegant at once. The nightstand balances the pattern with a traditional, antique-inspired silhouette.
2. Nancy Meyer’s Vacation Home
If there’s one thing Nancy has taught all of us, it’s that you can never have too much slipcovered furniture. I love how effortlessly elegant the casual blue stripes feel against the spindled legs of the nightstand.
3. Sophisticated Elegance
The woman who goes to bed with this setup every night is a woman who has her life together. This rich oxblood color oozes confidence and sass, while the sleek, two-drawer nightstand feels pulled-together and sophisticated.
4. Boho Glam
Word to the wise: Boho style doesn’t mean that you have to sleep with a mattress on the floor. This cane bed frame feels young and playful, while the antique brass nightstand injects a heavy dose of glamour.
5. Organic Modern
Modern design doesn’t have to feel cold, and this bed and nightstand combo is proof. The rattan detail seamlessly brings in warmth and texture against a simple black bed frame, and mixes effortlessly with the IKEA MALM chest. Bonus Tip: I always opt for the three-drawer MALM chest over the traditional two-drawer nightstand—the ample size feels 10x more expensive and chic.
6. Classic Coastal
This woven bed frame brings in tons of texture and interest to a neutral bedroom and will instantly transport you to a beach vacation. This Clive Nightstand is one of my favorite budget-friendly pieces on the internet right now; I love the added tray feature for extra space when you need it.
7. Elevated Neutrals
Bedroom furniture costs add up quickly, so I’m always looking for inexpensive accent furniture that I can elevate with higher investment pieces. This sleek and simple IKEA nightstand is a cool $70, but looks far more high-end when paired with this arched, stripe headboard.
