How Many Lamps Is Too Many Lamps?

My favorite room in our house is the living room. I painted it a pale yellow right after we moved in three-plus years ago, and it's bright and cheerful, and there are lots of pretty things here. There's a good bit of natural sunlight, too, which I love, but I also love lamplight. That cozy yellow glow from outside makes me feel all warm on the inside, especially as I pull up the driveway after a long day at work.

My newest lamp is from Country Curtains. I debated over whether or not to buy it. It was just after the holidays, and I did not need to spend any more money. But she proved irresistible.

This lamp was a gift when my hubby and I were married. I love her shape.

This one is gorgeous, too. She was a splurge a few years ago from one of my favorite home stores in town. The shade is so pretty, as is the finial. You can't see it here, but it matches the base of the lamp.

This one was inspired by a dear friend of mine. She LOVES these Tiffany lamps, and I decided the color would look nice against the white in this spot. It's beautiful at night!

This fashion model is from a local lighting store. She's an oldie but a goodie. She's also very adaptable, as she has lived in many spots. Notice the lovely shadow on the wall.

On a dreary, cold day like this one, a girl needs some lamplight.

And some fresh flowers.

How many lamps is too many lamps? When I posed this question to my husband, he said, "If you've got a dark corner, put a lamp in it."  I agree!

Have a great rest of the weekend.


  1. I love all of your lamps. Yellow is my favorite color for walls too. Love the bright cheerfulness of it. I agree with you husband. Every dark corner needs a lamp.

  2. Lamp light is so cozy! I like your husband's answer! Your living room is beautiful!

  3. Love the yellow paint's so cheery! And I love all of your lamps, especially your new one. They make a house a home!

  12. I say you can't have too many lamps. I love that large farm house painting. Such a great pop of color.

  13. Thank god I am not the only one. I thought I was an aberration.

  14. There is no lamp limit :^)
    For several of ours, I have purchased timers (in after Christmas sales), so when we arrive home in the evening we are welcomed by pretty lamplight in several rooms.
    At this time of year it is especially welcoming!
    Your home is so beautiful!
