It’s embarrassing how long I’ve neglected the blog but here I am, easing back into the blogosphere. I’ve had a very busy and exciting year with a major life change that has kept me occupied elsewhere. The shop is still active but the blog, I’m afraid has suffered. I thought I’d start by sharing a vintage addition to my home…this lovely bright orange table lamp. I can’t stop looking at it. 😀
And there are two new lamps in the shop as well. Click the photos below to go the listings!
My living room has never been so cheerful! Last weekend Verdibou purchased the coolest set of orange airport seats and they’ve been sitting in my living room all week. Every night when I come home, I catch a glimpse of the bright orange and it makes me smile – partially because I think it’s funny that my living room looks like a bus station with all those seats but also because orange is such a fun, stimulating color. I’m partial to the cooler end of the spectrum myself, gravitating towards greens and purples and grays…but having all this orange around me is a nice change of pace.
I looked up some of the color psychology of orange, and here are some of the words associated with the color:
Uplifting, Optimistic, Rejuvenates the Spirit, Brings Spontaneity and a Positive Outlook on Life
What a great color to have around! Click on the photo to go to the listing.
There’s a new Fresh Market in my neighborhood and I have a feeling it’s going to be really difficult not to buy fresh flowers every time I go there. They were all so beautiful, I wanted to bring them all home with me…but I settled for just one bunch. 🙂
The Danish Modern Candleholders are so sleek and minimalist, I just love them! We wanted to post this pair quickly because our other wooden candlesticks are sold out! We’ve put these in our Fall 4 Me Collection because they look great with the other browns, yellows and oranges of our other items.
And speaking of orange! These Japanese Lotus Bowls are a real statement. The contrast between the white and orange really make these come to life. They’re the perfect size for votive candles, which could make for a very calm and Zen atmosphere.
And finally, one that I’d love to keep for myself! This vintage clock is the epitome of retro, Mad Men style! It is a working clock but maybe you’d like to keep it at 5 o’clock all of the time? No, I would not judge you. 😉
