Daily Covet: Glass Table Lamps

I am nesting.  But not in the nursery department.

I also have Spring Fever, which makes me want to liven things up around my house.

My living room has been a tough room for a long time.  It’s always felt “unfinished.”  I have finally decided to pay some attention to it.  I started with the easy part.  Pillows!

We added an adorable little chest, which we painted bright turquoise against our paler blue walls.  It’s got gold accents, which look great against our straw-colored sofa.

Now, I’m wanting to update lighting.  I want something a little more modern to juxtapose with our mostly French-style antiques.  I think after scouring site after site for lighting that is fabulous, but also affordable (really?  $700 for lamps?!), I have finally found what I’m looking for… enter Pepita glass lamps from you’ll never guess where!

Daily Covet: Bright Ideas

Lamps.  I love them, but have a hard time committing to them, for some reason.  I would really like some new lamps for my living room (along with tons of other stuff for my living room), but I just can’t seem to figure out which way to go with them.

I found these gorgeous Holyoke Trophy Lamps, which scream out for Hollywood glam white sofas and mirrored furniture … neither of which I own.

But they do kind of make me want to start over…

Sun Room, Option #1

I’ve got a space that needs some TLC.  My husband used to work from home and used a very cute room off the back of our living room and adjacent to our kitchen for his office.  It’s not a big room but it’s got french doors and windows on three sides.  We have decided to turn this into a play/TVroom for our children.  Since it’s so close to the kitchen, I have a better vantage point to witness and hopefully stifle any trouble making they are getting into.

Because, it’s a narrow room, just over 7′ wide, I will need some smaller scale pieces.  And because it’s nestled between our kitchen and our living room, I didn’t want to add in another wall color.  I’ve decided that it either needs to be the same color as our kitchen or our living room.  Hence, we have “Option #1” followed tomorrow by “Option #2.”  Take a look….
