I Love Lamp

I hit up one of the HomeGoods on the Cape this past Saturday and discovered that the time of year to go for good finds is in Winter. [Of course there were some horrific finds as well, more on this later.] I was particularly impressed with their selection of brightly colored, floral patterned lamps, perhaps this was because it was very dreary and windy outside.

I like the cheery yellow of this lamp paired with a spattering of blue for contrast. I imagine this would be fun in a nursery or child's room with white walls, white furniture and lots of blue and yellow accents!

The more toned down colors and patterns in the next lamps make them more suited to an adult bedroom or a living room. 

I was in love with the aqua color of the first lamp below. I wasn't sure how I felt about the chocolate (I know if looks black, blame the iphone camera) lampshade. The second lamp's base looks charmingly like a ceramic garden stool (I didn't photograph the lampshade because it was horrific.) Perfect for a more traditional space. 

Of course not only were there lamps available but also some fun lampshades to bring new life to an older lamp base and a room. My favorite was this number with its appliquéd floral designs. It was available in several colors (not pictured in blue, green and red.) 

Unrelated to lamps, I found some Amy Butler pillows mixed in with the ordinaries. Paired with the stunning blue lumbar pillow I think it would be fantastic on a coach or perhaps as part of bedding frosting. I didn't purchase them because I think I've settled on a pink/ navy/ aqua theme for my living room.
