  1. I wish I could have you, your sister, and your mom come and decorate my house! Everything you three do in your homes is so pretty and chic!

  2. Oh I love this as a night stand. I must pin it so I can go in search for a couple when I re-do our bedroom.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. I love your nightstand--especially the blue lamp and geometric tray! I hope to upgrade my nightstand someday from a rubbermaid bin to something like this :)

  5. I love the roses. Where are the flowers from? I am assuming they aren't real? I've been wanting desperately to add a dash of pink to my room but didn't want my flowers to look too fake.

  15. I have this same candle and it's my absolute fave! Plus, the outside is adorable as well! Question for you - I have the Five Languages of Love on my Amazon wish list - what do you think?

  23. Cute post!! I've actually never had a nightstand, my bed has just always been near a bookcase that's really a little too high to be functional. I'm about to get my first one (big girl status) so this post is helpful! Chapstick is a must.

  26. You totally just gave me a deja vu moment. Two of the books on my nightstand right now are The Reason for God and The Five Love Languages. I'm also reading So Long Insecurity and The Great Gatsby. Anyways just thought that was a crazy cool coincidence!

  30. Hey Lauren! I know you get a million emails per day, but I REALLY need to know -- how do you keep your cats out of your decor and stuff? I have two cats, and I have had to put basically everything away because they mess with EV.ER.Y.THING. Sigh. Please help?

  31. Really love your decorating style. A really great trick I've been doing lately is to tack cords and wires to the backs of my tables, night stands, etc. I think it makes for an even cleaner look. Love the blog!

  32. I love the nightstand. Even more though, I love that book "My Utmost for His Highest". :)
