When Lamps.com approached me about picking out some of my favorites from their website I was excited to brainstorm what I would put in certain rooms in our house. Even though we are close to being done with a couple of rooms in our house we still haven’t chosen many lights… and the ones we did chose in the kitchen we are already itching to swap out. So, let’s just start with the kitchen. We currently are using an antique lamp from my great-grandmother but would love to use that somewhere else and get a chandelier over the table.
AJ and I have been admiring jug chandeliers for over the island but when I came across this chandelier, even though it was totally different from a jug chandelier, I thought it could work in the space:
We would love to swap out our lighting over the island… we, unfortunately, made a quick decision on those lights and both of us want something more interesting.
and we both like something like this option:
Our living room needs a lot of work… I’m still figuring out the vision for this room but know that I love neutrals and textures in here. Our walls will change (it is currently very old and stained grass cloth wallpaper) and I am hoping to swap out the rug for another one with more color and move this one down to the finished den in the basement. Oh, you didn’t know we had a finished room down there? We don’t. But we want to and hope within the next year we could make some progress down there.
I would love to get a couple natural lamps for the console table behind the couch and paint the mirror something to contrast with these lamps.
I think Elle’s room would be completely charming with a crystal chandelier…
I love this one here… it would add a touch of glitz and glam to the sweet room and will work nicely with more ornate bumper that’ll coordinate with the rest of the room.
Our bedroom really needs some lamps… and nightstands to put them on.
Wouldn’t two of these be fabulous looking in there?
Lastly, let’s head outside…
There are grand hopes to put a new front porch on the house this summer… notice we only have three pillars? That’s because the front porch is so rotted.
It was funny as I was looking at all the outdoor lighting options that the ones I kept gravitating towards were the ones with beachy titles… I suppose that’s because we are within minutes of the ocean…
Tell me, what are your favorite choices for your house?
