A Lighting Rainbow

While shopping for a new lampshade at my local lighting showroom I found myself drawn to all the gourd lamps.  Their shape and the wide variety of colors they come in make them a great choice for so many bedrooms, family rooms, living rooms and so on.

The two I saw were blue, here they are


I got to searching through my inspiration files and found so many more beautiful gourd lamps.

So tell me, do you like gourd lamps as much as I do?

If not as much then pretty darn close.

I'm with Full House. When it comes to lamps, sometimes simplicity = perfection.

Saara @ GEORGE Interior Design said...

I love them! I'm quite sure you saw my bedroom redo, complete with my light green gourds! :)

They are so simple, yet make a statement as well. I think the statement is: I look good.

After all, Fall is right around the corner and I love gourds, pumpkins and the entire cornucopia of lamps.

Definitely love them, and there have been so many great colors and variations at HomeGoods lately!

I just bought one from Marshall's for $30. It's hot pink right now and definitely needs a makeover becasue our master bedroom is a deep chocolate color with lots of whites and creams. The pink just needs to go... I think I'll be doing the same thing Janelle did with her's.

I love them too.

If I was allowed to bring one more lamp into my house...I would have to pick up a few of these. My smurf lamp is the closest thing. And it needs a partner right now.

I see all kinds of ugly ones at the thrift all the time. A coat of spray paint fixes 'em right up!!

KSK said...

Love them too...classic yet still fun and a little funky. Hope to have a Christopher Spitzmiller one day!

We can not live with out our beautiful gourd lamps. Great way to add pop to a room. Love to mix them with Jamie Young lamp shades.

Hello Lover... said...

Love them! I have two silver gourd lamps in our living room. And everytime I see this style at homegoods I want to buy one in every color!
