    Bedside Table Lamps

    It's easy to brighten up your bedroom with a fresh new bedside table lamp. Whether you want modern bedside table lamps or traditional table lamps, the following suggestions will help you find a light to fit your style and add the right amount of light to your space.

    Remember, the lamp should be pretty enough for your private sanctuary.

    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!

  • From Outfit to Interior: Sleek + Understated

    Outfit to Interior

    Modern Kitchen

    There's nothing more attractive than someone who is comfortable in their own skin and their own space, it's just a fact. This jumpsuit from Piper Gore screams sleek and understated and it makes sense that our Ms. would surround herself with things that have a similar feel. Dark tones with a few pops of vibrant color and natural materials is a confident palette that doesn't have to try very hard to impress.

    Modern Pendant

    Ms. Sleek & Understated wants to add a little bit of light over her incredible concrete countertop. A few of these Caps Collection Mini Pendents add a contemporary look that doesn't distract, yet also brightens up the workspace.

    A set of Zuo Marius Bar Stools add another pop of bright red to an island or bar top, while the metal stays true to the natural materials in the space she's created.

    Modern Chairs

    To keep the dining table interesting, Ms. Sleek & Understated has opted to use these Black Vinyl with Chrome Chairs for seating. Their comfortable shape makes long after dinner conversations a regular activity! They're also a breeze to clean if someone happens to make a mess.

    Brushed Aluminum Helix Collection Pendent adds a shimmer of light above the table, and adds a new texture to the mix of metals.

    Modern Floor Lamp

    Ms. Sleek & Understated wants to carry this effortless look throughout her home, especially in the living room. She's opted for the Providence Modern Chrome with Black Tufted Zuo Sofa to add some style and personality to the space. So welcoming that it just begs for someone to curl up and read a book or watch a movie!

    For a touch of easy elegance she's added the Arterior Homes Violetta Brass and Black Iron Floor Lamp. The vintage black finish on the shade and brass finished base is perfect for this easy to live in space!

  • Color Crush: Black

    Modern Living Room

    Black is definitely one of those colors I tend not to use in my home. It can very easily and quickly darken up and take over a space. But when it is done right and used in the right accessories for your home, it can be a real triumph! What do you think? Would you ever give black a try?

    This room above has some pretty amazing black pieces that really bring the whole space together. Of course, the abundance of white helps to neutralize such a dark color like black. Even though there is quite a bit of white in the room, it kind of acts as a canvas to make the black accessories really pop and give the room more depth. I especially love that big black six. I want it!

    Robert Abbey Bruno Bronze Scissor Arm Pharmacy Wall Light, Laine Faux Leather 29 1/2-Inch-H Dining Chairs, Uno Black Elephant 18" Square Down Throw Pillow

    Here are just a few black pieces I think would look stellar in most spaces.

    This accordion light is incredible isn’t it? It would add a bit of old school quirk to any room. I think it would look fantastic as a bedside light or a reading nook light. I love it!

    And the dining chairs are amazing. I love the look of the black seats with the super dark wood. So pretty! And of course their modern mid century look is a definite bonus.

    The elephant pillow is one of those great pillows that would make a statement whether it is front and center on your sofa or hanging out on your kid’s bed. I love the graphic design of the elephant too. Really cool.
