The new Anthropologie home catalog showed up this weekend, and we thought that some of the lighting it features would be particularly suited for an apartment with children. Bright, whimsical, and fun lighting this spring, all good things in spaces for families with kids. The Hanging Garden Globe is nylon netting, with applique of felt and hiffon flora. $168.00 for the lamp, $12 for the socket set. A few other interesting lighting options and inspirations from Anthropologie, below. From left to right: the Selva, Frida, and Mena lamps, by Brazilian ceramicist Flavia del Pra, with shade by Adrianna Barra, a Brazilian fashion designer.
At $548 each, these three lamps are probably a little pricey for most children's rooms, but they would be a nice way to encorporate a little colour and fresh design into a room that the whole family shares. We love the bright colours, and while we probably wouldn't be purchasing these for our own nursery, they were inspirational enough to us that we put these in our nursery style tray. The base on that first lamp reminds us a bit of the room Rachel painted.
Of course, if you already have a lamp that you want to repurpose for a kid's room, lampshades may be the way to go. From left to right: Alexander (in blue, $98), Palak (in blue, $78), and Timur (blue only, $148). All three are embroidered on cotton drum shades.
