Creative solutions for tiny bedroom. Halp!

My guy and I live in a lovely apartment with a very small bedroom. We're able to fit a queen-sized bed and a dresser, but not much else. One problem we're facing is a lack of space for nightstands. We both would like some space to keep our phones (mostly because of our alarms), reading materials and maaaybe a tiny lamp. I have a small amount of space on my side of the bed and could potentially fit a small tripod-style stand. (any suggestions on where to find one of those are welcome!) He has no space. He has under the bed space. There is also an unused door that always stays shut on his side, so we were thinking possibly of getting some sort of hanging shelf that can be hung on the doorknob. Do those even exist? Any ideas? Thanks creative hivemind!

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

I'm interested in learning more about design and illustration, and I live in Florida. I thought about attending a conference here in Orlando (so no hotel or travel fees), but being new to this I am not sure about the presenters, and the price tag is hefty (even with my discount code, $395 for three days). So, creative Mefites, tell me what you think! [more inside]

Web Design Critique

A site I designed was recently described as "competent but uninspired," while this stung, it matches what I feel about it. My question to the community: are any designers here willing to take a look and offer me some constructive criticism? I'd really appreciate it, as this site is for an artist friend and I'd like the design to be both professional and "inspired" without obscuring the art. [Link Inside] [more inside]
