Lamp Talk

Lighting plays an aesthetic as well functional role for me. I like the forms of table lamps that are simplified, reflecting a welcoming
and comforting feel- a perfect mood of a drawing room or bedroom.   
I love an eclectic mix of items for decorating my house.                                          
When the lighting effect is successful and the lights are switched on
your worries are melt away, then a magic occurs...
I think these lamps would fit in any room so perfectly. Don't you think? xx

I love lighting too. It is as much a part of decoration as a couch ever can be. With more variability. I absolutely adore those bare pulps hanging in your first photo. :)
Great posting!

I enjoyed looking at different kinds of lamps. Love this!

Journaling Woman said...

I am a lover of lighting as well. I have a problem with buying lamps old and new - when i don't need them.

Momma Fargo said...

It is amazing how light can change your moods. Very cool, Betty! You inspire people to think.

Tracie said...

Very pretty! I need some new table lamps for my living room.

Well I got you from some other blog where you request someone to post a comment your post so I thought why don't I post a comment on your blog, your blog is really really nice and interesting I would say just to keep it up.

Thanks.

"... magic occurs." That's absolutely right, Betty. The lighting is just as important as the other accents, and I've always believed it's the accents that make the home, not the main furniture. Lights can make it or break it, just about. Lovely photos... and I especially love the lamp with the white florals... I'm a sucker for flowers, but just in simple designs.

A very homey and cosy post, Betty. I think I'll go make me some tea, now... ;-)

Big hugs,
Nevine

I SO need better lighting in my apartment. These are great examples!

Joe Cap said...

I, too enjoy lights, especially different colors, etc. It really can set the mood.
I also love BRIGHT lights...if I am looking for light, not just mood, I want LIGHT!

Mood lighting is very important indeed. The Floral Ginger Jar is my favorite of those you've shown. But as always, your taste is impeccable.

Lighting really does make a difference. Interesting post :)

Nice photos!I like the shapes of the lamps but when one of them burned by the much usage,we may have serious problems with the electricity.

Susan Deborah said...

Let there be light. Whoosh and here I find lots of light instruments. I liked almost everything what you have shown. There is a lovely feel here and I like this place.

We have been neighbours in commenting at many places. Thought it was time to check out yours and invite you to mine.

Joy always,
Susan

My house is way too dark, but I'd rather take a beating than shop for lamps, etc. Actually, I'd rather take a beating, than shop, period.

Kristin said...

I am totally in love with #4!!

For years now I wonder whether one is able to hear light - these surely would be worth listening to. A great Friday for you.

We have the oddest chandelier in our dining room. Kinda tacky, but it's close to my heart for that very reason!

Bossy Betty said...

Lighting is SO important. You are right. It can really set a mood. So you ever watch Candace Olsen's decorating show? I am in love with Chico because of what he can do with lighting. (Shhhh....don't tell HOB!)

covnitkepr1 said...

My all time favorite is the "can light" better known as recessed lighting.

Kelly said...

You've featured some lovely lamps here. Thanks for sharing the link to overstock.com! Lots of good stuff there!!

Thanks, too, for your kind comments at my blog. You're so sweet to always visit me there!

Lynda Young said...

The lighthouse lamp is cute. Lighting is great when it is done well...I'm just not very good at doing it well ;)

If I could (and if it were practical), I'd light the entire house with fairylights alone.

blueviolet said...

There are some truly beautiful lamps available these days. The shapes are so interesting!

Ah Ngao said...

i loves the dim light from an Alladin lamp - gives me that "magical" feels and dreams.....

Good lighting can make a house irresistibly charming. Aside from table lamps, it's also important to have charming lights outside our home to make it more appealing.

I am looking for some new lighting ideas - thanks for the inspiration!
