Hey hey! Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
As I've mentioned once or 50 times in the past couple of weeks, I'm spending January finishing projects and not spending money on DIY or decor (and more). An easy task for some but when you're a DIY and decor blogger it gets a bit harder. :) With my to do list I've been keeping plenty busy! I am getting the urge to visit a store though…HomeGoods? Maybe World Market? Ravage the dollar spot at Target?
But I'm not doing it. I'm staying strong! It doesn't mean I can't ogle some goodies online though. :) I've been super impressed with Target's lighting line lately (say that three times fast) and figured we could drool together. This is not a sponsored post, I just like sharing good stuff with you all! And I have um…a few? of these lamps myself and can vouch for them. (I was a little surprised when I realized how many I actually owned.)
First up, the floor lamps, because they my favorite! A perfect way to fill an empty corner, give a spot some interest with some height or…to actually give you light. Imagine that! I pulled together some of my favorites for you:
OK so this is where I realize I have 1. a lamp problem and 2. a Target lamp problem. I grabbed the globe floor lamp a couple months ago and I love the modern look mixed with the more traditional decor in our library:
I love mixing styles just a bit -- I'm not an eclectic decorator per se, but I do like some unexpected touches.
That turned floor lamp (#4) is so beautiful! I have a similar one from Tarjay in our bedroom:
It has two sockets so lets off great light!
I also have the Downbridge floor lamp (#7) in our living room:
I love a floor lamp that directs the light over where your sitting. Perfect for reading a book. :) I really wanted the drop pendant lamp (#8) but felt like it would be too much in that spot.
See? I already knew I had a pillow problem, now I know I have a lamp one as well.
I hear singing when I walk down the table lamp aisle at Target -- I have to visit every trip. Of course those don't disappoint either:
3. Large cream ceramic lamp (green)
I had the gourd lamp for years (I love that it's so similar to the very expensive version at Ballard Designs!) but the glass and ceramic starting separating inside over time and it looked awful. Not sure what happened but I couldn't figure out how to fix it. Still a great lamp -- maybe it was a fluke.
I have a couple of these as well but my favorite is the gray wood and ceramic one (#10). I actually had it on our kitchen counter for awhile and it looked amazeballs in there, but we have plenty of light sources in the kitchen. Now it sits in the foyer:
There you go! Some of my favorite Target lighting finds -- and as you can see I can vouch for a
Now I'm back to painting and to-doing. ;) Do you have any of these beauties?
