when it comes to decorating a room it’s been said that lighting is everything, so today i’m talking about table lamps. they’re such an overlooked addition that can really finish a space. think of a table lamp as an earring that tops of the “outfit” of your home with a special flare. i love ceramic table lamps because they’re great for adding curves, texture and color to a tabletop. they add a stunning finishing touch to both console tables and bedside tables alike. see how a pair of matching table lamps frames a bed with subtle elegance? i love the mixed colors of the same lamps framed around the bed below. which lamps are your favorites? let us know in the comments! – erika

i’m really into portraits and landscapes. i found a painting of a woman at the goodwill once for $3 and i still love it so much. aren’t these ladies cool?

wall art is usually the last thing i end up doing when decorating, but every time i add it into a space i realize it’s one of the most important elements. if you’re anything like me, it can take a long time to actually get around to hanging it up. here’s a quick solution for your in-between phases: leaning wall art. not a new concept, but one people often forget. no need for a hammer and nail, just rest your favorite framed art against a shelf or credenza for a relaxed look that’s easy to change. i like it best layered for a contrast between different art. if you’re in the market for new art i love the art prints at minted and artfully walls. you can even get some of your own custom prints from parabo press. what are your favorite ways to style art? – erika
