Recently I was on a buying excursion for an office space I'm designing. One of the many stops was to Lula B's in Dallas ~ definitely a favorite spot of mine if you are in search of one-of-a-kind incredible vintage pieces. I spotted this retro cream colored beauty and thought it might be a nice option for a small desk lamp. But after scouring the store, another lamp became the obvious purchase for my client. However, I kept going back to this little light and alas ~ I couldn't help myself. It was yearning to take up space in a dark little corner of my home ~ so here it happily resides. :)
I love the combination of the clean swirly base with the textured lampshade. The shade's leather whipstitch is like a cherry on top.
I combined the lamp with this wonderful vintage Swedish cow sign ~ I'll tell my you more about that in another post. I also incorporated some vintage Capiz shell trays into the arrangement ~ Nana bought these in China back in the early 80's.
To top off this little grouping, I added in my favorite candle of all time from Anthropologie. The etched glass container alone is like a fine piece of jewelry to me and the scent ~ well words can't describe. I remember smiling when a friend of Gavin's came over to visit and I had the candle burning. He said "This house smells like love" ~ need I say more? It's wonderful!
I think this charming vignette completes this corner in my home ~ it makes me happy every time I pass by. I would love to hear about a favorite corner of your home. :)
