Hey Whitney....this is for you.
I guess we do have a mix of lighting throughout the house. I think lighting is really the most important aspect of decor, so I love adding sconces, lamps and ceiling lights wherever possible...and on dimmers, too!
I realize these are the same images I just posted...anybody else on blogger having a tough time trying to upload pictures?
Anyway...here are the sources for the lights pictured below. Although they may appear to be a mix, my list may prove a bit uninspiring. You will see it hit the same spots over and over...
The lamp in the corner is from Pottery Barn Outlet (it may be a West Elm piece since they are owned by the same company). The sconces on the mantel are from Progressive Lighting. $5 each. Not kidding.
The basketweave pendants in the boys' rooms are from the same PB Outlet. These are from the PB Kids line. Wyatt's floor lamp is IKEA.
The majority of the lamps, though, are from Homegoods. For fun, trendy lamps you really can't beat them. The one below was $39 and the base is a light gray.
The sconces for Liam's bed are from Crate & Barrel. These were a bit of a splurge at around $150 each. I love that they are not swing-arm, though...for that would have just turned into two swing-arm lamps flying across the room!
The light above our bed is from Target. It was from the Shabby Chic line several years ago (although I did see on in our target this year for around $30). I think I may have bought it before our first child when I thought we were having a girl. The original paint was white with pink flowers. I just spray-painted it chrome. I love this simple light.
Again, the table lamps are from Homegoods. This triple-drum shade is white eyelet lace. I believe around $50 each.
This floor lamp (are you yawning yet?) is HG, too. I promise I just saw the same one in Anthropologie for about $450! This one around $60.
This chandelier is from Lowe's at $100. The star pendant in the entry is Ballards and the two chrome table lamps from Homegoods....again.
Our exterior boasts two more star pendants (can't have too much of a good thing!)....these from Pottery Barn---and the two bronze barn lights next to the door are Ballard Designs.
And do you want to see how us married folk ended our date night last night? We did have a wonderful dinner out...but instead of having dessert out somewhere else or going to hear music, we ended our date at Target to get the kids some pajamas. Please tell me we're not the only ones who do this. Julie
