Cozy Lamplight

IMG_3236.JPG
I love the look of soft lamplight, especially during the cooler months. A few years ago, I purchased lamps for our living room, but they were more for a decorative buffet. They didn't give off any useful light for reading. One of them broke awhile back, so this afternoon I replaced them with traditional living room lamps.

There is also a small lamp on the kitchen counter. It's nice to turn on in the evening and the early morning.

And finally, an even smaller lamp in the bathroom. It's the perfect nightlight.

I love your lamps! I need to find one more for my living room table. Where did you find the first one in your first picture? Very nice.

Love the lamps! They make a place so homey. I like your idea of putting one in the kitchen. I should do that.

I do the same thing! Love little lamps and nightlights and have them everywhere. I even have the same lamp on my kitchen counter that you do. :-)

Kelli, I love the lamp pictures. Everything looks so warm and inviting. I have been wanting to get a lamp for my kitchen. I have just the perfect spot for one.....maybe after the holidays. I have a little snowman lamp I put there at Christmas.

R U already for you company to come? Everything sure looks lovely.

Debbi, I finished cleaning the house and decorating for fall this afternoon. Now it just has to stay clean!

All the lamps are very cute. I love the light that lamps give off.
I hope you're enjoying your Fall.

I need some new lamps, you have given me some good ideas.

I like lamplight too...seems to take us back to when life was simpler. One of my favorite times of the day in the fall and winter is closing the blinds late in the afternoon and turning on my lamps.

Hi Kelli!
I love your lamps displayed all over. They look great. This summer, I found a sweet little lamp at a garage sale that I will put in my kitchen after the holidays are over. Have a great weekend!
God Bless,

PEA said...

Like you, I love turning on my lamps when it gets dark instead of the ceiling lights...so much cozier. I really love the lamps you bought, they're gorgeous. xoxo

The lighting from the lamps gives such a warm and cozy feel. I love looking at homes and even though some can be ultra gorgeous, they lack the cozy feel that would even make you want to be in them. Your home is both beautiful and cozy! Your blog is such a blessing!

Donna said...

The lamps are so beautiful-and they create such "atmosphere" for your home! They are lovely. Have a great weekend. :)

Love the idea of having one on a counter.
Have a wonderful weekend-
Blessings to you!

I agree with you about the lamplight and your arrangements are very lovely.
I am looking for a couple of small ones that use the little nighlight bulbs.

Your lamps are so cute! I have lamps everywhere too, and even put one outside on the screened in porch. They do give a coziness, don't they?

I love your lamps, Kelli. They do make rooms look cozy for these cool days and nights... the smaller ones are so nice in their special spots.

Your daughter did a great job on her cake! Beautiful!:)

Love the lamps! I use lamps in the same way...I love the feeling of coziness the warm light gives to a room/area.
