Our house is fairly new so one might think we have good lighting. That person would be wrong. I can’t tell you what I would do for some recessed lighting! We have a large living room and the only light in the room is a ceiling fan. Thus, I was in need of some lamps. We had these little guys from IKEA from our days in the apartment.
They were really inexpensive but didn’t give enough light and were certainly too small for the size of the room.
So I have been on the lookout for some new lights, and two weekends ago, on a trip to Target, I found what I had been looking for. I found these clear lamps that can be filled with items during the different seasons.
And then I found these shades.
I love me some quatrefoil and I knew the yellow would look fabulous against our gray walls. So I picked them up, took them home, and turned them on. Let me say, I think they turned me on! I LOVE them. And every time I say that, Chase says, “I love lamp.” (Name that movie!)
And what do these lamps really show me? Well, we definitely need to get some curtains in that room (like a year ago), and we need some more fun patterns and colors. I guess I need to start shopping for rugs and pillows. Darn!
Oh, and check out these amber lamps by mom bought for her living room. They are more clear than they look here and they aren’t cloudy at all. She has a gorgeous shade of blue on her walls and these will look so great! I almost wanted them for myself!
So how about you? Bought any lamps lately? Anyone else wonder why it isn’t illegal for builders to build homes without proper lighting? Someone should do something about that!
