And as you might imagine, there are quite a few nice pieces that pass through my hands.
I'm usually pretty good about letting things go- I'm not a hoarder and I certainly don't have 'too much stuff'. Even still- I am kiiiind of getting a lamp problem, and I want your opinion!
This 1960s table sits in one corner of my lounge room. My problem is, I have 3 lamps that I love and I don't know which one to put here.
This is better shot of the first one. It has a nice brass plated base and original silk shade. My grandmother gave it to me so there's no way this will get offloaded.
Then there's this atomic 50s plastic ribbon lamp that I showed you here.
I haven't had it long, only a few months, so I'm not ready to get rid of it yet- if ever.
You might remember I just bought this one a few weeks ago- it's still the incumbent. Even though I'm not mad on the shade it matches the room quite well, as I have similarly-coloured curtains and a crystal lamp with a gold shade atop my china cabinet.
So you see my problem? I really love all 3 lamps but I only have space for one. None can go in my bedroom because its all Art Deco (see it here). Which lamp would you use???
OOH nearly forgot, here's my new rug, now in residence on my lounge room floor. It's a 70s shaggy number, just in time for winter, not that we have much of that but as soon as the temp goes under 22 or so I get awfully cold feet.
I'm gradually improving the lounge room, it's still a hodge podge of colours which it will continue to be for a while longer yet. VB was home sick from childcare today and made herself comfortable on the new rug in front of the t.v., apparently it gets the thumbs up from her too.
Enjoy your weekend.xx.
