I recently gave my bed a total makeover. I bought a new mattress, had a slipcover made for the headboard and chose coordinating fabrics for bed skirt, duvet cover and shams. To complete the new look I had to change the lamps.
I'd like to say I whipped up the bedding with a few dish towels and a sleeping bag or some noble claim to be green and save money but alas, I enlisted the professional services of Calico Corners. (they were having a sale!)
I happen to live about 5 miles from an Ikea. I spotted these lamps a few weeks ago and thought they would be the perfect compliment to the new bedding.
The Ikea lamps remind me of Johathan Adler ceramics and lamps which are over $200 each at the very least when on sale.
I'd still like to incorporate a touch of red and some texture with an extra pillow or two on the bed. I think I'll add a window treatment as well since Calico Corners just announced another sale!
