Pink Lamps

I admit to having a "thing" for lamps.  Am I alone?  I know lots of women who love shoes and bags (me too!), but I also get excited over pretty lamps (and mirrors).  You can find inexpensive lamps at places like Home Goods, so they're easy to switch out when you crave a quick change to a room.

I'd been coveting a girlie, bright pink lamp for some time, but didn't want to spend a fortune.  Lamps Plus has a cool line of lamps from every color of the rainbow (with cute coordinating shades) for around $100 and up, but then you also have to pay shipping.  And if you want more than one, it's obviously double the cost.



 I pinned a beautiful coral lamp, but it's $442! Um, no. 
And finally, when I wasn't even looking, I found a PAIR! of bright pink ceramic lamps at Home Goods! And they were less than $50!  I haven't taken the tag off yet, but wanted to show you how they look in my super slowly evolving guest room.


This is a room-in-progress with a lot of bright colors going on . . . still not sure about how it will end up.


What's your "thing"?

  2. I like how they pull your eye to the bits of pink in the wall art. My "things" are jeans, flats, gold jewelry, and power saws :)

  17. I've been loving pink lately and these are beautiful! My downfall these days is art. I feel like I've been spending a small fortune on prints these days!

  18. Gorgeous. I loved pink in middle school and then rebelled against it for the longest time but it's starting to find its way back into my life. Love the lamps and how they pull the pink out of the painting!
