b*home :: give me a light, or two

Remember the master bedroom project? Yes, it’s been awhile. If you’ve forgotten, I’ll find it in my heart to forgive you. But only if you send me dark chocolate. ANYWAYS. I wrapped up the room last April, and have since been living in it and loving it. It’s cozy, but not cluttered. It’s easy and simple, but has plenty of personality.

I bring it up now because last week I made a subtraction and an addition to the master bedroom, and it’s worth sharing. I was never really a huge fan of the bedside lamps, but was also unsure what to replace them with. I’d considered something wall-mounted, and went as far as purchasing a set and painting them black. In the end, however, they just weren’t doing it for me. Enter a random trip to Home Depot and a set of swing arm lamps for $30. Yes, the SET was $30. I’m not sure how that math works, but HEY! Who am I to judge? I scooped these babies up and welcomed them into my home with love and kisses and promises of cozy nights cuddled up in bed with a good book. They’re not Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware, but I’m all about mixing things up. West Elm sheets with Ikea coverlet; DIY headboard with designer wall art; Home Depot lamps with vintage accessories, if you get my drift.

    Pretty sure I will be stopping by Home Depot this weekend to look at their lamps. We’re trying to find some for our new townhouse and I didn’t even think to look there! Thanks!
