Hang wall-mounted reading lights close to the sides of the bed or above it (about 6 inches from the edge of the mattress or headboard). Place them at a point that makes sense for the position in which you read: sitting straight up, stretched out on your stomach etc. You want the beam to shine directly on the page, not at an oblique angle. For maximum flexibility, choose articulated reading lights that you can adjust to suit your height and your reading position. Go for a style that focuses light in a narrow beam rather than diffusing it over the surrounding space.
Floating shelf. If your bedside space is challenging, or if you prefer a minimalist style, try a floating shelf as your night-table alternative. The designs of floating shelves today go beyond the simple white or wood rectangles we've come to know. Stylish shelves can be found in glossy hues and a variety of shapes, and can also feature useful storage options. Shelves flanking the sides of the bed often appear built-in and look best when they are the same size and style. Look for a shelf wide or deep enough to hold a small bedside lamp and book, and hang it at the same height as the top of your mattress. Tip: Attach the shelf to the wall with anchors and screws that can hold 40 pounds, or at least the load that your shelf instructions recommend. Be sure that the combined weight of your bedside items is less than the shelf's maximum load.
Old-world comfort. Plump cushions and deep bedcovers are pure luxury. The patina of age on a mirror paired with full-length drapes and a personal collection of antiques call to mind venerable old European hotels. Silvery gray-blue paint, plush wall-to-wall carpeting and creamy bedding are a serene match for this look.
