How to Pull of Mismatched Nightstands

You dream of creating a bedroom that inspires you…

…one that looks worthy to be in a designer magazine or on the homepage of Houzz!

You’ve noticed that a hallmark of any designer bedroom is mismatched nightstands. They look “matchy” – but aren’t.

Maybe you have considered trying to re-create the look but you’re worried you won’t pull it off.

I’m here to tell you that getting the look is easier than you think. And I’m going to do better than “tell” you.

Let me show you…

In today’s episode of Amitha TV, I invite you to come behind-the-scenes of a recent design project where you’ll see how I took two hideous mismatched nightstands and transformed them into magazine-worthy “mismatched” style.

And at the end of the video I have a big mini-room reveal waiting for you that you absolutely won’t want to miss!

Here’s what else I have waiting for you:

-The tell-tale signs to look for when choosing your nightstands (get this wrong and you won’t get the designer look)…

-The specific parts of your nightstands that must match – and what doesn’t matter

-How to pull off the mismatched look – without fail

-I reveal my go-to dimensions for a pair of nightstands

-Nightstand accessorizing secrets from the pros

Are you ready for some serious mismatched nightstand inspo?

I’m curious to hear what you think of the mismatched nightstand style.

Would you try this in your own home? Do you feel confident enough to pull off the look?
