This beauty caught my eye while shopping today
{well to be truthful anything aqua always catches my eye}

NO
but just could not resist...
brought it home and plunked it on my telephone table...

...
the next moment..... not so sure..
...
then i loved it again
...
no...back to the store
...
maybe it should stay
...
you get the point!

....so thought i would ask my daughters once they got home from school...
one LOVED it.....the other told me it was way too retro looking for our home!!! ahhhhhhhhhh
so i said that's IT...

I've worked as an interior designer and I say it unequivocally stays!! It's fantastic. I love that is doesn't perfectly match the more traditional decor. The color, style and shape are fantastic. It totally pops! If you return it, I'll never talk to you again. (So, do you want to know what I think?)

I really didn't know where this post was going, I thought at the end you were going to say that those were pictures from a magazine... your decor is beautiful... I love the lamp and that phone is amazing!
I also love anything aqua aparently its a creative colour!

I vote that it definitely stays...

if the lamp stays (the colour is amazing) and i think is should, you can start collecting other lovely things in that colour it keep it company.

I would keep it. I think it looks great with the phone. The color is great and mixin' it up here and there is good!

I love it. The color is wonderful and it looks so good on that table. I say keep it!

Our husbands are the same when it comes to decor... it takes my darling husband a week to notice anything different and I can actually see the internal struggle to form an opinion in his face! :)
I adore your home - i wasn't sure at first if it was magazine photos it is so gorgeous, but it also has a 'real' home look/feel to it and I can see it has been lovingly created. As for the lamp - the fact that your heart isn't fluttering in delight every time you look at it tells me you aren't truly in love with it? I say take it away again, put it in the car as if you are going to return it and see how you feel then - if you are pining for it to be back again, you'll know it's love! :) Lottie xx

PS. ok maybe it sounds a little over dramatic to talk of being in love with a lamp! But hopefully you know what I mean?!... :)

Well...I think it should stay. I love the pop of color it gives to that corner...and it looks wonderful with your phone and the blue and white pillow on the chair. I think not all decor needs to be from the same era or style...mixing it up a bit adds personality.

Hey there Koralee, What a pretty name.
Thanks for stopping by to say hello. You have quite the lovely blog yourself.
About the lamp, Definitely a keeper.
I love Aqua! My daughters' room has white walls with aqua trim and ceiling.
Blessings,
Molly

La Marquise des anges said...

I think it's lovely!!!

Sarah said...

My first thought was, "Wow - what a fun lamp!" And it matches your phone, which I really love!! Keep it! If you hate it after a year, give it to the daughter that loved it, and get something else for there. But sometimes we need to be in a room with our things for awhile before we love them there. All my decor doesn't "match," but it is here because it suits us, or I love it, or because it is comfortable! Thanks for sharing!

Hi A Little Bit Late, but better than never.

I love the lamp and the color goes very well with the rest of your collections and room. The only problem is the scale. I suggest that you elevate the lamp by placing it on several of you favorite books. I truly love all your eye catching beauties on your blog. Thank you so much for sharing as your inspirations are well. . . inspiring!!
