The Light Fantastic..

I always see lights..lighting..lamps...etc...in magazines, on blogs, in books, in shops...I hate them, almost every single time. So I feel like putting together a list of lighting I would have in MY house, if I ever had the budget for it.

If I wanted drop lights, I would go for ones like these:



Or maybe I would have one of these:



For a floorlamp, this just thrills me:


Dh is giving me weird looks for that one, though...I might have a battle on my hands. :p

If I wanted a chandelier, I would have something like these:


You can keep the boring traditional shapes and lead crystals, thankyouverymuch.

For ambient lighting, these are just gorgeous:




I very rarely see a table lamp that I actually like, much less love, so I have no pictures of one...I much prefer a floor lamp, or wall lamp, anyway.

Anybody else out there like me?? I always see so much love for all those things on other blogs, etc, and I just don't understand it. It can't be just me, though!!

Those ambient lights are just gorgeous! A lot of those remind me of lantern flowers, very pretty.

I love unusual lighting too, not that I have any : ( I just have your run of the mill Home Depot stuff, BORING! I really need to change that!

This was a great post for me today...I've been auditioning light for our entry for about...humm...4 years now! Hubbie and I don't always have the same taste..
