If you HAD to use one of these (I have two each), which one would you choose?
I was TRYING to go for a British Colonial look, but unfortunately, I don't have dark furniture, nor can I change it, so it is what it is. I did get the quilt and pillows, so I guess that's all I can do for now. The chair that I bought off CL will go in here (when I get it finished).
I like the lamp on the left because of the height, and I'm a sucker for brass. Is the right one brass or ceramic? Hard to tell in the pic. I do like it's shade better. Perhaps you could prop it up on a book or three?
Okay, that's three for the brass lamp I had those in there first. The one on the right is glass with a brass bottom piece and they were my mother's. I took them when I cleaned out her apartment and I wasn't sure what to do with them.
I have an idea. To the right is a triple dresser with a hutch (that I hate). What if I get rid of the hutch and put the lamps on the dresser with a large mirror on the wall? Would it be strange to have different lamps so near each other?
Originally posted by meldin: It would absolutely not be strange to have different lamps, it would be right! So, lose the hated hutch, hang a mirror, and proudly and lovingly display your mother's lamps.
Ditto! I also agree that the brass lamp is better scaled for a bedside lamp.
Thanks. I'm staying with the brass lamp on the left. I'm trying to get rid of the huge hutch that belongs to the dresser and I also want to replace that picture over the bed, I just don't know what to put there. I'll take some better pics of the room, so you can all help me pull it together
