What About Lamps?

What comes to your mind when you think or see a lamp? For me, I think of it lighting up the darkness around us and bringing hope and sense of comfort.

We don't have any Traditional lamps (aka floor lamps) in our house as we have a very active and curious toddler around the house but I like seeing these lamps in other people houses. My brother in law has a couple of floor lamps which I think complements his house nicely and adds a nice artistic touch to the rooms. Look at the picture below, wouldn't it look great to have one in your house?

And talking about lamps, there is also the Bedside table lamp types. Again, sad to say, we don't have one in our room, not sure why. But if we are ever to get one, I think I'll go for something like the picture below. I like the aqua colored base of the table lamp and it looks artsy and unique too!

What about you? What sort of lamps do you like?

Mirror, Mirror...

Oh the classic line of "Mirror, mirror on the wall / Who in the land is fairest of all?" came to mind when I think of mirror... or when I happened to look into one.

With so many types and designs available on mirrors nowadays, it's by no mean an easy task to choose one that fits your style and purpose of owning one. I personally feel that getting a mirror requires proper planning and decision making - for example: whether it fulfils the purpose and how it is going to complement the look of your room.

I think one of the most commonly owned mirrors is the decorative vanity mirrors. To me, I feel that a great vanity mirror is one that is functional, practical and beautiful all at once. I would personally go for something simpler in style, and yet look classy and unique at the same time. I mean, look at the vanity mirror shown below! I would stop few times not only to check my reflection, but just to admire the design and the mirror's artwork too!

And then how about full length floor mirrors? This type of mirrors not only complements and enhances the outlook of a room, it also does wonder with the interior design of a room as well. Placed appropriately, it might help enhance the lighting in a room and also makes objects in the room appear larger. Wouldn't you want to own a floor mirror like this?

So what about you? What type of mirrors do you like and do you think they are important?
