I'm kind of a stickler for having everything in order and am a firm believer that everything has its place. Maybe that's why I'm a huge fan of keeping the bedroom symmetrical with matching bedside tables. Of course I can appreciate when people mix things up a bit, but all in all — there's nothing quite like symmetry.
I love mixing colors, patterns and textures in the bedroom but for some reason I just can't shake my preference for matching bedside tables. I love the simplicity and straight forwardness of Kristen and Mike's Mid-Century Oasis because you can truly focus solely on the fantastic bed and timeless lamps - and maybe you'll even notice their matching but not too matchy clocks!
On the other hand, Kathleen & Maurizio's Imported Italian Home has a lot going on in the bedroom but still managed to have matching bedside tables and lamps.
What do you think of keeping it symmetrical with bedside tables?
