I've mentioned my love of blue and pink many times. I love many uses of these colors, a few of my favorites are: (1) hot pink with dark electric blue; (2) hot pink with pale blue; and (3) dark blue with pale pink. I can't believe I've been in my apartment a year now! I've been craving a new lamp ever since I moved in.
I had been eyeing this lamp at Target for quite a while. I love the color, I love how it looks like pottery. At $44.98 it was too steep for my budget. Last week while walking around Target, I noticed there were boxes and boxes of new stuff being stocked by the employees. Hmm. Maybe my lamp was on sale. I breathlessly walked over to the lamp isle, thinking the lamp must be sold out. But there it was - marked down to $22.98! I figured it was meant to be. I didn't see any lampshades I liked, and I didn't have the heart to pay for a lamp shade that cost as much or more than the lamp. I knew I'd figure something out. Maybe I'd find something at the Goodwill. Then it hit me.
Remember my favorite cover of Domino magazine, that I've showed you like a zillion times? I love the cobalt blue sofa with the pale pink pillows. Remember the pink lamp I bought on the cheap at Old Time Pottery (man I miss that store)? See previous post here. I could use the pink shade on my new lamp.
I love it! I prefer an ambient glow at night, and this fits the bill nicely. This is my kind of DIY. Simple. Little changes like this make me happy. My bedroom needs a total makeover, stay tuned for some bedroom inspiration. And what about you dear readers? Have you been Spring cleaning? What colors are you using for Spring?
