'L' for Lighting Living Room

Living Room Floor Lamp

This little corner of the living room is looking so nice.

I found a floor lamp to light up my life.

I’ll take better pictures soon (these are from my phone), but yes. I found a floor lamp. A little brass, a little bronze, and a little more expensive than I would have liked, but it’s really nice.

Adding a light to that corner makes the whole room feel better! I should have done it years ago. And I took the down the print that was hanging there. I’m not sure if I’ll replace it with something else yet. The blank wall seems strange, but that could just take a little getting used to.

    I really like how the chair looks in the phone pictures! Is that how it looks most of the time when you aren’t waiting for perfect light to take the other shots you have posted?

      Well, these are ‘unstyled’ yes. The color is a little off though, since it’s an iPhone photo with an instagram filter.

    I love that red pillow! Where did you get it? It is just what I need to complete my couch pillow collection.

      It was a birthday gift from August! I’m pretty sure Brandon helped him pick it out though.

      It’s from CB2.

    I honestly didn’t care for the new chair when you first got it (probably because I’m so in looooooooooooove with the old one haha) but the pillow/lamp combo is making me change my mind!

    The blank wall may seem strange to you but it doesn’t look strange (to someone who’s not used to seeing something there). The lamp makes it seem not too blank. And a picture may clutter that small area.

    Love it! I’ve been looking for just such a lamp to go in my new living room next to a vintage chair I just picked up: http://milkybeer.blogspot.com/2011/09/around-house-living-room.html

    Where did you get such a lovely lamp?

    I have to admit, when you first said you were switching chairs, I thought, no, don’t do it, I love the orange and white one but I’m one for change (just ask my hubby) but it looks spectacular with the lamp and the pillow. I was the one that emailed you about your chair. I am assuming you sold it but it’s okay because I bought a new/old orange chair from Craigslist that I am in love with. Can’t wait to see what else you do now that you’ve added the chair…it’s a domino effect:)
