In previous posts, I’ve mentioned how we are working towards re-doing our bedroom. And by working towards, I’m referring mostly to sitting online for hours collecting photos of things I like and trying to figure out how I can incorporate them into a cohesive design. You may recall that I have officially picked out the fabric that I’m very eager to make a headboard out of.
Beautiful, beautiful fabric which matches a pair of Jonathan Adler accent pillows perfect. I can’t help but just sigh over how vibrant the combination is. Off track. Let’s keep moving on. Yes, the fabric is picked out. The new chest of drawers has been bought and currently in the garage waiting to be loved on more and fixed up. We have our amazing night stands already in position, although quite barren at this point, and the turtle lamp is looking very lonely.
It’s easy to assume that I’ll want a cute little catch-all to hold jewelry or bobby pins, and I’m still itching for that Jonathan Adler docking station. I can count on the fact that I’ll like to get a nice decorative basket to put on the lower shelf to hold a book or a magazine as well. But, the one thing I can’t put my finger on and visualize just yet is lightning.
In the least expensive way possible, I’m trying to recreate the master bedroom that Sarah Richardson designed on Sarah’s House. I fell in love with the idea of mirrored night stands, and a bold print headboard. Plus, anything she does is basically flawless, which gives me all the more reason to try to replicate it in our home.
The first thing I notice in that photo is just how light the table lamp is. It doesn’t take any attention away visually from the rest of the furniture. Plus the shape of the lampshade is killer with the shape of the nightstand. Ah, Sarah has such a good eye for things like that. When looking online for interesting lightning for the night stand, the first place I headed over to was my trusty Z Gallerie.com, and I found two really charming table top lamps which conveniently are both on sale right now for a limited time. Both are really light looking, which is just what Sarah has going on in her bedroom design. But the question of the day is which one to choose?
I think it’s safe to say that I may just love them equally. How about one of each? That might be a little bizarre. But oh so fashionable! No, no…it would be weird. But, I think I’m really loving the juxtaposition between the industrial look of the second lamp against the feminine look of the night stands. What do you guys think?
Oh! And speaking of Z Gallerie, remember how the other day I mentioned how the Evans’s household wasn’t feeling all too Christmas-y? Well, in my travels to their website, I came across an event they are sponsoring, and it looks gorgeous! The W Hotel in Los Angeles converted their pool to an ice rink for the holiday season, Z Gallerie decked the halls (and by halls, I mean rink) which some fabulous furniture. Why can’t this be in Florida? If anyone is out in LA, please check this out and send me pictures for inspiration, because this most certainly makes me feel Christmas-y!
Enough of that, now back to deliberating between two light fixtures!
Love, J and A
