Bedside toppers to brighten up your day

When it comes to the bedside table, less can be more. Still, there are a few great essentials that you absolutely need so you wake up happy and relaxed! Here’s what we absolutely need by our side.



Vase of flowers

There’s nothing quite like the prospect of waking to sun streaming gently into your room, a vase of fresh flowers on the bedside table. Want to keep them fresh for longer? Try these tips!



Scented candles or fragrance diffusers

When it comes to scented candles and fragrance diffusers, you know that they will always serve you well, whether by way of design or by simply adding a hint of calm to the air, the perfect way to lull you to sleep after a long day’s work. What’s more: add a hint of zest in sweet orange oil or lemon and come alive by scent during the day!


Reading material of choice

Let’s face it: there are fewer joys in life than that of reading in bed, and who are we to pretend otherwise? If you’re lacking space on the actual surface of your bedside table, look to extra smart storage, which can come in many forms from macramé hangers to ‘alcoves’ built into your wall.



A cute alarm clock

It can be overly jarring to wake to the sound of an unruly phone alarm that, despite your best efforts, increases in volume with every passing second. Instead, pick an alarm clock that adds to the aesthetic, or better yet, choose a bedside radio that will play your favourite classical tunes to gently ‘bring yourself back online’!


Drinking vessel, in style

If you’re prone to waking up in the middle of the night parched and in need of a drink, set aside a little tea set with your herbal beverage of choice!
