Lamps...I love em

Give me a lamp and I will eat for seven days.  I love lamps.  Some people collect purses, shoes, etc...mine downfall is lamps.  I bought two lamps for the living room yesterday....they look like Liberace should have them sitting on his piano...remember him?    I fell hook line and sinker in love the moment I saw them.  Let's remember that I have a very contemporary home...which I was going to decorate that way....at first.  Then Gord wanted furniture that was not that contemporary...because his little feet could not touch the floor on all those fancy sectional furniture you see. The seats in them are so long.  We sat on a hundred sofa's and seriously both of us could not reach the floor with our feet.  Did we get shorter with age?...or are we shrinking..the latter I believe....anyhooooo.... we bought stuff that is cozy and comfy...feck the contemporary... so now I have licence to bring in all the the cool stuff that I love.  Our furniture and kitchen cabinets are dark and I intend to make this place look like  you just walked into a really comfortable place you can call home.  I'm not there yet ....but I will get there.  The lamps were the catalyst.....now I now where I am going. 

Unfortunately you can't ignore technology...and you have to have the big screen TV's in the way...but hey...it's going to be a little of the old and a little of the new.  I will try to make the two meet.  This is so much fun right now.

The lamps bring such warmth to those corners!!! It's a good time of year to be setting up and decorating your house--too snowy and cold to be outside anyway. Have fun!!!

Seriously Joan, they do make furniture that actually fits people who aren't tall (I'm 5'5") but you have to do a little detective work to find it.

Glad you got comfortable stuff. Easier said than done. Your living room looks great. Lotsa room for me and Kathy when we land on your doorstep.
