lamp advice needed
So I’ve been on the lookout for fun and cheap lamps that we could put on our nightstands, and when I came across these bright green lamps at Target (in the college section no less…), I thought they’d be awesome.
My question for you is: are they? Or are they just a little too short?
See what I mean about that little clip lamp not doing it for me? It’s not too pretty…
(Here’s where I note that we don’t make the bed. Ever. We just fold the duvet at the bottom of the bed and call it a day… I read once that keeping your bed unmade reduces the ability of bed yuckies like dust mites to multiply, and I am using that as my justification. It’s totally not because I’m just too lazy to do it…)
Gah! Help! What don’t I like about this picture? What would you do if this was your house? Be brutally honest!
Here’s where I begin to think that maybe the real issue is that blank wall. I’d love to build a full length mirror for that space to bring a little more light into the room (and to check myself out). I think there should be a window on that wall anyways.
The other thought I had was to go with something simple like so:
This particular lamp/shade seems kind of boring, but if I put a fun patterny print on the lamp shade it would be a heck of a lot more fun.
And of course I’ll be making some fun throw pillows for the bed. I’d probably not be too lazy to throw 3 pillows up there each morning.
PS Note the terrified dog in each of these pictures. It’s raining here this morning and Barley is soo not impressed. Jezebel? She’s outside prancing in the rain.
Alrightie, peeps! Time to get to work designing my bedroom! Help!
