I’ve noticed a pattern with me. Every February I start looking at lamps. And by looking I mean getting obsessive. I comb through catalogs and click through websites. I usually start at HGTV’s marketplace and mysteriously find myself strolling the aisles of lighting sections of major stores.
I think it may be because the winter days are shorter and by February I crave more light. I’m a fan of quirky lamps, something with personality. I love the whimsy of the offerings at Anthropologie and think the fun, hip and affordable options at Urban Outfitters are great. That’s where I got this lamp that sits on my desk at work.
Meanwhile at home, this lamp that I picked up spontaneously one day makes me smile.
Proper light placements makes a huge difference and there are excellent tips here. It’s not just where you place it but what it looks like when it’s lit up. Do you have a favorite lamp that brightens your day?
