I was browsing the internet last night and came across this lampshade and base.
Suddenly I needed a new lamp!
According to their website, the closest store had the lamp in stock so off to Target I went this morning.
The lampshade was described as medium brown so I wanted to check it out in person. When I saw the shade, I discovered that the color is definitely more tan than brown. I was thrilled because the tan was perfect! I bought both the lamp base and lamp shade and headed home.
Originally, I planned on putting the lamp in my conservatory where I have my pool table. Unfortunately, against the Providence Olive walls, the lamp looked washed out. I was so disappointed until I had the idea to try the lamp in my living room.
This is a closeup of my living room rug.
As you can see, the colors work perfectly in here.
|And here is how the space looked before.|
Of course I forgot to take a picture of the new lamp in front of the existing artwork.
But the colors looked weird together so I decided to go with something different.
I played around with some artwork I had around the house and mixed in some accessories to bring in a lighter spring look.
I felt like the first print was a little small. When I took a step back, it just looked lost on the wall.
The second print filled the space nicely and allowed me to use the same white accessories but the frame seemed a little dark.
The third print had the right colors in both the print and the frame but I wanted something a little bigger.
I would have to at least lower the hook on the wall so it wouldn’t look so high.
No, too much work…haha.
The last print (which hung over my fireplace last year) filled the space well and worked with the greens.
I did though, replace some of the white accessories.
I am happy with this overall look and the frame on the print coordinates well with the lamp base.
Can you believe that plant is still alive? I bought it about a year ago and it’s still hanging in there!
Isn’t it funny how a little purchase can snowball into a day of changing accessories all over the place?!!
So what do you think?
Do you like the version that I chose or do you have a favorite?
