As fun as decorating is, it's a total numbers game--especially when you have a tiny budget. To help you style your home colorfully without breaking the bank, I'll be sharing my favorite under $100 styling combos every month on #behindthepalette. This month's decorate by numbers feature is for your bedside table.

The colors and pieces you choose to surround yourself with can ultimately affect and shape your mood. Since your bedside table is one of the first behindthepalette you see in the morning and last before you turn off the lights, you're probably going to want to put more on it than just your cell phone charger (and definitely not a stack of work papers and to do lists). Find things that help your organize the essentials (like your cell phone), but also make you feel relaxed. When sourcing items, I looked for white accents and hints of blue to set a peaceful mood. 

#behindthepalette Decorating by Numbers >> Style a Bedside Table for under $100!

Isn't that white lamp from Target is such a steal!? I'd stack all my "pretty books" beside it (like this one), and then put the candle on top. In front of the books, put down the patterned blue nesting plate, which makes a great catch all for organizing your cell phone, jewelry, etc. Finish off the look with the art print and book and viola
