No one said modern design had to be limited to homes on land. You can find modern style on a houseboat too!
It seems like the perfect place to be during the warmer months is on the water. So, why not live there?! Whether vacationing or long-term living, houseboats are pretty cool. That being said, as modern lovers, we hadn't seen a lot of cool design when it comes to floating homes. Here's one of our favorites. Her name is Jolie and she's from Holland.
So, how do you design the interior of a modern houseboat? The same way you would any modern home... Simple, minimal and functional. This houseboat has plenty of open space and is designed for functional living.
Try some of these floor lamp styles to get the look above, whether you live on a houseboat or on land.

Like any modern kitchen, this design features clean lines and simple white finishes to look larger. There's just enough contrast with some warm wood finishes. We couldn't love it more.
This is one lucky kid, he gets to live on a houseboat and have a super cool, stylish room.
Do your Summer plans include any houseboats?
Today we remember and honor all those who served. Thank you.
Happy Memorial Day everyone!!
Sometimes a girl just needs to sit back, relax, and know that everything looks amazing (including her!). Ms. Chill & Easy Going relies on cool blues and reflective decor to achieve her laid back coastal vibe.
To create a show-stopping focal point Ms. Chill & Easy Going chose a gorgeous chandelier that you can't help but ogle. The Vienna Full Spectrum Chrome and Crystal Chandelier features a cascade of round and diamond shaped crystals that diffuse light with a little sparkle.
Perched on the dining table directly beneath is this Amalfitana Nickel and Gold with Mesh Lotus Platter. It's the same width as its overhead counterpart (22-inches) and adds a beautifully reflective surface that could pass as art.
To carry the effect throughout her home, Ms. Chill & Easy Going has dangled a few of these contemporary James R. Moder Celestial Sphere Crystal Chandeliers above her bookcases. But they would be equally at home over the kitchen counter, lined down a hallway, or over the bar.
No space is complete without a little natural ambiance, these Amalfitana Polished Steel Tealight Candle Holders fit the bill just right. A few clustered in a dark corner add an exotic feel to any room.
When a little extra illumination is called for Ms. Chill & Easy Going reaches to switch on her Brighton Hammered Pot Brushed Nickel Table Lamp. The metal base has a hammered finish that add beautiful texture to her decor, while the crisp white drum shade helps to keep things light and airy.
She carries her style outdoors to the patio with a pair of Milo Brass Robert Abbey Outdoor Pendants. Each one features industrial-inspired design in an antique brass finish with small perforations on the top of the frame for that extra something special.

Here are a few tips when purchasing a new bedside table lamps:
1. Height: The right size lamp depends on the height of your nightstand. It's said that a bedside table lamp shouldn't be taller than 30" or else your eye will get a glare from the light bulb - no one wants that when they are reading at night.
2. Positioning: Place the lamp close to the wall. That way you can place other essentials on your nightstand as well.
3. Shade Sizing: Be sure to keep the shade small - you don't want to bang your head. I recommend fabric shades in a bedroom because they are soft and add warmth to a room.
I hope that you find your ideal bedside table lamp!
