Tonight, I made a decision every woman agonizes over.
I bought lamps.
They really are gorgeous and a perfect fit for this area in my living room (at least, that's my opinion. See below to form your own). See, there are a couple of things people forget to tell you about building a house:
1. You will end up with dark spots even when you carefully plan your lighting.
2. You will be in need of light switches in places you never anticipated.
We solved both of these problems by purchasing twin lamps to put on either side of the credenza. We have plugged one lamp (and when we get an extension cord, we'll add the other lamp) into a sensor that is connected to a lightswitch we screwed into the wall. Problems? Solved. Plus, I think it's pretty cute.
Now I'm moving toward tables in the living room. I liked the idea of these:
And, since I promised they were coming, here's a picture of our weekend getaway to hold you until I get time to talk about it in detail.
