Time For New Lamps?

January 20, 2016

I would like you to take a minute and go take a peek at your living and bedroom table lamps. Are they still pretty? Are they more than 6 years old? Do you still like them??

Lamps, believe or not, is one of the most dated items I find in homes when performing home design consultations. I think many people just don’t notice their lamps. They are just one of those accessories that has been laying around for years.  I want to tell you that one of the quickest and easiest ways to update a room immediately, is banishing your old lamps and finding new pretty lamps. They are not so expensive anymore! I found these at Home Goods for only $ 60.00 each!:

Target has great lamp selections and also Overstock, Lamps Plus and Wayfair  to just to name a few. And shipping is free with most companies today when ordering online. They really do make the room perk up and give the room instant interest and personality!

If you are keeping your lamps out of love, I would keep them and be proud to show them off. But if you are not attached to your table lamps and have not noticed them in awhile – except for dusting around- maybe it is time to buy yourself a new pair of pretty lamps!

How do you like the look of my new website?  I would love to hear your thoughts!

Thanks everyone!


  1. I LOVE the new look of your website!

    So true about lamps and how they can look dated and date a room. That’s why so many end up at thrift stores…LOL! I’m always amazed at the truly good prices stores have on lamps these days. (I’m happy with mine right now–they’re on a third paint color and a very classic design) but I so agree: they can be the easiest way to update a room.

    Can’t wait to see your room redesigned!

  2. Love the new, easy to read layout of your website!

    New lamps can make a huge difference in a room. I found this out first hand when Kelly helped me update my family room! Wish I could post a photo I’ve my beautiful lamps.

  3. Hi Kelly! LOVE the new website! Looks very fresh and modern. I have many old lamps that I just can’t seem to part with because I just can’t seem to find any new ones that I love. I never think to try Target- that’s a good place to start!

  4. Love the nice clean look of your website just like I love your design style!
    I have been following you for years and didn’t know you have a “Newsletter.” Can you add my name to your suscribers, please.
    Thanks, Kelly and keep up the good work,
