  • Modern Table Lamps That Make a Statement

    • 0 Comments

    Modern Table Lamp

    There are certain details of a room that can either be overlooked or can make a big statement. One of those details is a modern table lamp. I’m a huge advocate of stylish modern lighting. The right lighting can change the look of a room in the best way. One great thing about a great table lamp is that it creates a nice glow in the evenings, providing a cozy space in your home. And in small spaces, we need those petite items to make big impacts.

    To create more lighting in a hallway, try placing a chair and pretty side table in the deep corner. In this hallway (above) the small table is paired with a simple shade lamp. What a great nightlight when the home is dark!

    I’m absolutely in love with this light! It would look fantastic in a hallway space, or any space for that matter.

    Modern Bedroom

    Bedrooms are an important room to light up. Bedside lights need to be the right height to allow for perfect nighttime reading. The room above has done a great job by sticking with its modern roots and adding that small round light.

    This clean and sophisticated lamp would make for a great bedside light. Pairing two on either side would be striking!

    If you are looking for a little more drama in your space, look for lamps that are taller in height. You can find one that is large in width for extra va va voom or keep it simple and find one that is skinnier, to fit in less space.

    This “movie set” like lamp is super industrial and will add some Hollywood style to your space.

  • Get the Look: Modern Dining Room Pendants

    Modern Dining Room

    Pendant lighting is all of the rage these days – whether you install them in your kitchen, bathroom or dining room. I have to admit, I’m one of those people. I’m constantly proposing a modern pendant light to my clients. What’s not to love about them? The beautiful hand-blown-glass is timeless and provides a modern feel for any space.

    When I came across this antique light at the flea market (dining room above) I knew it had to be mine. Whenever a reader sees it they ask where it’s from. Since it’s vintage I’m always looking for a similar look. Luckily, Euro Style Lighting has a hand-blown version that is stunning with its smoke glass. The transparency of the glass allows you to enjoy the warmth and light from the bulb in true modern style.

    Farmhouse tables are a favorite amongst my clients because they want to host large parties. I’ve been mixing them with modern lighting – similar to the image above. I’m a huge fan of mixing styles – the modern lighting with the organic feel of the table. It adds more character to a room. These hand-blown clear glass pendants add that modern flair.

    Modern Museum

    +You've got to see this museum shaped like a tub. It's actually attached to the older building next to it and the contrast is amazing (the interior is even cooler)! 

    +For those of you starting the new year off with healthy intentions, Refinery 29 provides a great list of the best L.A. juice bars.

    +Have you seen The Hobbit yet? Well, chances are you don't like it as much as Maddie Chambers who built a hobbit dollhouse!

    +If you're in the mood for some great photography and you can't make it to NY for the Ann Hamilton 'The Event of a Thread', then head over to Whimsey + Spice, where Jenna Park shares her photos of the art installation.

    +In other news, there's a giant rubber ducky drifting through Syndney's Darling Harbour.

  • From Outfit to Interior: Stylish Decor for Wintry Weather

    Derek Lam Shearling-trimmed Coat

    Winter garb brings thoughts of stylish decor consisting of leathers, woods, and natural tones to mind. Ms. Wooly & Warm loves to take full advantage of this time of year with all of the above! This Brushed Nickel Pull Chain Floor Lamp (below) with a bold black striped shade is a great example of a piece that's both classic and modern. The brushed nickel finish gives off a welcome winter glow.

    Modern Lighting

    Ms. Wooly & Warm knows she doesn't have to choose between color and style when it comes to the Corbett Vertigo Foyer Pendant Light (above). The warm bronze and gold leaf tones in the swirling iron make any space feel more inviting.

    The Mercury Glass Table Lamp with drum shade (above) helps Ms. Wooly & Warm maximize every last ray of winter sun. The textured base gives reflections an extra oomph and helps to brighten any corner the lamp is placed in.

    Modern Furniture

    Casual, comfortable, and easy to stash away when Ms. Wooly & Warm feels like changing up her stylish decor for warmer weather – that's what the Zuo Draper Lounge Chair (above) is all about. It's also the best place in the living room to curl up with a book and hot toddy!

    The Arteriors Home Keifer Side Table (above) makes the perfect match for that comfy chair. The metal cast base has the appearance of petrified wood while the black marble top keeps things classy. Ms. Wooly & Warm knows how versatile this piece is and uses it for everything from side table to plant stand.
