Little Lime Lamp

Hello Everyone!
How are you doing this fall so far? It's been beautiful here in NC. I can't complain.
~*~
While browsing Marshalls last week I came across an unexpected find. A little lime lamp
that I added to our downstairs powder room sink. I wasn't shopping for a lamp but that is
how it goes sometimes. I absolutely loved the color and since it was on clearance for $20 I
grabbed it. The poppy prints in this bathroom have lime in them and it can be hard to find.
Take a look! 



 
I like the happy pop of bright color it gives the dark sink and entire powder room.
I'm not concerned that it looks retro-modern and the bathroom lighting has a tuscan style.
No rules ... decorate with what "you" enjoy in your home.  
I'll be back soon with with my autumn jar decorations and a laundry room facelift.
 Stay tuned!
~*~
Have a wonderful weekend!

I love it, both the color and the shade. I have a thing for lamps and shades so a cute lamp always makes my heart flitter flutter.

$20 was a steal! That lamp is really cute.

Your powder room is lovely, Melissa, and I totally agree that the pop of green with the cute lamp is the perfect touch.

That's right! NO RULES--use what you love and what makes you happy. Goodness, if we tried to keep up with all the trends, we'd be perennially unhappy--and probably bankrupt! :)

I really like the lime lamp! It's the perfect size and shape, isn't it?

Becca said...

What a fun pop of color, Melissa! I love it ... and, the shade is so neat. It looks great in your beautiful powder room, too! Happy Fall!

I love lamps in the bathroom, although I don't have any in ours yet. Not much room. Ha
I noticed that you live in NC. We are in the process of selling our house and preparing to move to your state. ;-) I am so excited. We visited NC last May and loved it. How do you like living there?

Beautiful bathroom Melissa! I'm visiting for the first time and am smitten with your blog and decor! You are surely one of my newest inspirations here in blogland! I'm following you via GFC and Pintrest now!
Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home!

Perfect!! I totally agree with doing what makes you happy and ignoring the "trends" and all the "musts" the designers insist upon.

Love it!! I also ABSOLUTELY LOVE the other "thingy" you have by the sink (the urn jar thingy). I'm with you on decorating with what you love. I'm not a big rule follower when it comes to decor.

Aileen Collins said...

So beautiful! I got a lot of decor inspiration in this post! Thanks for sharing. Love this lime lamp, perfect for my mckinley hill condo.

Angela said...

Girl we could totally hang together shopping! I almost bought that exact lamp at Marshall's for our living room but couldn't decide! I also was looking at those monogram pumpkins at Kirklands as well but was bummed it was ceramic. I'm a first time visitor - have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
