Scoutpack Style: The Chest

There is an art to dressing the chest. Most spaces have one of these versatile case goods, but they aren't just for functional storage. Whether bedside or couchside, chests abound with decorating potential. Ready to adorn yours like a pro? Read on to learn the Scoutpack’s best tips and tricks for styling everyone's favorite: the chest.

Mother (Nature) knows best. Opting for fresh foliage not only adds visual intrigue by creating height, it also brings brings an organic feel to the table. If you want to keep things even more au naturale, cutting branches from your own backyard (like we did below) gives a space that je nais se quois.

Our Vase Collection has your back when it comes to sourcing an artful vessel for your greenery.

They say two's company, and when pairing a chest with a chair, we couldn't agree more. Adding a seat into the mix is the perfect opportunity to introduce texture and shapely curves. What's more? Having another furnishing lends itself to creating a whole moment. Whether you choose a contrasting piece or something that goes with the pre-existing vibe, you can't go wrong with a pretty perch.

It's time to style with symmetry. For those working with a pair of chests in a big space, might we suggest placing them flush together? This creates a bigger styling opportunity and gives the feel of a longer piece. 

However, if your chests are going bedside, we think they should look more like sisters than twins. Decorating with matching lamps can be a uniting element in your space, while other decorative items give the matching chests a distinct feel.

Discovering distinct decor is a breeze with our Accent offerings.


Wall you need is art. Seriously, though. Dressing up your walls is one of the easiest ways to create a memorable scene. A fun opportunity to get creative, we think choosing artwork is a great way to let your personality shine.

Go bold or go home with our unique Wall Art.

A glow up has never been easier with this tried-and-true styling hack: choose a lamp and keep the rest simple. Less is more when illumination is involved, and opting for a clean look allows your lighting piece of choice to shine atop your chest.

Our Lighting Collection is full of unique finds that will help you say more by styling with less.



When it comes to styling, books are your friend. Streamlined and simple, books look clean while adding texture and a pop of color. Opting for colorful books that match the preexisting palette makes decorating your chest a breeze. Plus, who doesn’t love a little light reading before bed?

Y'all know we can't resist a LEWK. For our friends who are bold at heart, here's some inspo that includes a little more than light reading:

Crafted from book pages, our Library is Open Series will give you allllll of the reading inspo. Or maybe you're on the hunt for some fresh reads? Browse our book selection.


We love styling because it allows us to creatively express ourselves. At the end of the day, your chest decor should be a reflection of your own personal style and interests. If it feels right to you, we say go for it.
