Lamp Love Link: Mad for Plaid

I've been at it again. There may need to be an intervention. Or not. I'm not sure I want to be helped.

You may have caught me in previous posts referring to a basement TV den/study that was so many miles down on the project list I didn't think it would ever happen.

Maybe so. But I already bought lamps for it.

I found them on Etsy, and well. I just had to have them. The plaid design is in a wash-y blue, aqua, tan, and terra cotta color, with stripes in gold. Here's a closer look:

I think these need a strong color shade to max out the design on the bottom. Like gold, aqua, or even a medium brown. The fabric underneath is a clearance remnant I hope to use for toss pillows. I'm also working in this vintage office table that came home with me earlier this year:

And throw it together with lots of travel and cabin kitsch and brown leather:

What do you think?

    1. Thank you! And I'm so glad you stopped by. We are all so worried about you and the ranch! I'm heading over there right now to read your latest! :)

  2. Those lamps are AWESOME!!!!! SCORE!!!!! And your design scheme is FAB, I say one can never have enough kitsch in their lives!

    1. Thanks! I love the idea because it will give me an excuse to collect one of those souvenir plates for every state we've lived in or traveled to. And we've been to quite a few! But not Arizona...yet! :)
