Let There Be Light!

Because it’s dark earlier I want more accent lighting around the house to cozy up the casa.

I love the way this photo is accessorized with the pairing of the heavier tartan on the clear lamp base. The weight of the fabric pattern is made lighter by the variegated roses and white book jacket with red lettering. The white back drop is perfect. So fresh.

I have been obsessing over these for weeks.
I want to gaze into them to see the future of how I could pay for them, even on sale, which they are now. Two in college. I have my priorities. Don’t you just hate it when the left brain takes over!

I can picture both of these on my sofa table just like the photo. Pottery Barn.

You would not believe the lamps I have on my nightstands.
Laura Ashley Ginger Jars! Shhhh, don’t tell anyone!
I might update with wall sconces and nix the bedside table lamps all together.
The mirrored mosaic gives it a more updated look, don’t you think?
Black high gloss shades or leopard print? Ooooo.

I purchased this lovely for my kitchen but delivery is not until late Dec.

After years of democratic rule in my house where I made sure my choice of decor was comfortable and agreeable to the male majority, I made this executive decision. Why now? I have a gorgeous chandelier dripping with crystals hanging from the rafters in the garage. When I brought it in I heard comments from the male delegates of , “ugly, too girlie, in the kitchen… no way! Find another home for it… and the worst… sell it.” You get the idea. By being vetoed on this one item I have become a smart strategist. I waited until there were only two remaining votes left at home and of course, Mr. P.M.’s is mine by proxy! 😉

Have a radiant weekend!
