I am still in search for the right pair of lamps for our TV room. When I was at Raney’s (my sister-in-law) house this past weekend, she had some fabulous lamp pairs in every room. I feel in love with them. It got me thinking I really need to continue my search for the right pair. Here are some options if you are in the market for some. Enjoy!


Candelabra lamp $308.00


Shine home lamp $995.00


Martha Stewart venetian glass lamp $299.00


Stray Dog Vincent lamp – Pick your color! $425.00


Ballard Designs desk lamp $249.00


Pair of wood washed lamps by Arteriors Home at Tonic Home $750.00


The items in our kitchen are…

When designing our all white, shaker-style kitchen, we kept the color options very simple; white, chocolate, and silver with a small splash of blue gray. We did a lot of our shopping online to find just the right thing. Plus, when you shop online most shops offer free shipping and no sales tax. All of our hardware was from White-Chapel – I just feel in love with the thickness and quality! We just used basic white subway tile along with all the white trim color is Benjamin Moore white dove, including the cabinets. White dove seemed to match everything. I have listed below a lot of the other items in our remodel that I found on other websites. Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!

I love lighting!

One of the hardest things about remodeling is picking the all the lighting options. We are still trying to decide on our pendant lights for the kitchen, a dining room chandelier, and some for the new powder room. Here are just a few I have found. Enjoy!

Interesting objects for your walls

Clothespin Wall hook from Chiasso

Cool light switches from Red Dot

Silver light switch from Red Dot

I noticed these light switches in a magazine from many years ago. They are meant to be an outdoor, weatherproof light switch, but I love them for indoors. I was finally able to find the manufacturer after many days of searching, along with Jed’s help. He is the master of search engines on the web!

Hand door knocker

Louis XVI door knocker

I love door knockers! I saw this one in a magazine a long time ago, then found one at The Old Home Supply House on College Avenue. They have tons of great vintage door knockers, handles, knobs, etc. at a wonderful price.  If you want the brand new one from above photo, check out E R Butler.
