Friday Five: Oversized Lamps

June 8, 2012

I just read May’s House Beautiful on the plane a couple weeks ago. (I’m typically woefully behind in magazine subscriptions, but if there’s a plane ride involved, I can usually knock a few back issues out quickly.)

Anyway, I poured over a section of 101 Designer Secrets. Several hit home, but one I liked in particular was this:

Does it?

The size isn’t big in this one, but the scale of the cane is. I think it has the same impact.

{better homes and gardens}

{via nickel cobalt}

{via apartment therapy}

Or, why not do both?

Are you big on big accents? We have a pretty big coffee table in our den and a big brass lamp in Sadie’s room.

I forgot to mention I was over at A House in Holland this week guest blogging about 3 small projects that are easy to do. Check it out, and MORE importantly, have a great weekend!

    Hmm…delicious eye candy and food for thought. Dessert and dinner all in one post. I think I’m too wimpy to have ever gone out on the big accent limb. Yeah, I can mix my metaphorical cliches–but not big accents with my smallish spaces. Have to ponder this one…

    I LOVE that BH&G square caned coffee table – or whatever you call it. I’m not a big fan of overscaled stuff, but I LOVE that.
