Hello AT,

I am in need of assistance. We finally got our new bedspread (paris peed on the old one - and me - when i accidently shut the door to her catbox) and we are in desperate need of bedside lamps that match. Brian doesn't like his because its "dumb" he says, and i think mine is too much. they just need to match, we decided...

Our bedroom is this green color, our bedside tables are white laquered pottery barn shelf things. There are mirrors above each table.

I think the lamp needs to be round, because there's already a lot of sharp angles going on with bed, table, mirror.

please help me find one.

is it a red lamp we need like this?

would that be too much?

I have other ideas as well at this link on my blog.

Thank you, Jamie


You go girl! You have a very nice bedroom and we feel your pain in the bedside lamp department (we also feel Brian's).

This is a highly subjective decision, but we'd say that you already have a good deal of strong dark accents (the bedframe, the picture frame and the side table) and you have enough red in the bedspread, so we'd go lighter on the two lamps - white, in fact.

We agree with you on matching and on roundness, so our pick of your two options here would be the double round that you have in a bunch of colors, but we'd choose white.

Anyone else?
