Do you find that when it comes to decorating a home, there’s always some items that are easier to buy than others? And it’s so personal! While I might be less good at sourcing rugs, I have a huge passion for lighting and it’s one area of our home that I have fully covered! Could it be the dark Swedish winter? Or perhaps that I see lighting like art? Or maybe it’s the huge variation waiting to be discovered. Either way, I’m always on the hunt!
Last week, I added three beautiful new gems to my home and studio from Hudson Valley Lighting Group International. While this was purely an instagram collaboration, I’m so happy with them, I thought maybe you’d like to see the gems here on the blog too!
In the corner of our sitting room I added the Nora wall sconce by Mitzi. I was drawn to it because it’s like a jewel, brightening up what can be a fairly dark corner. It’s also not too big which is great, as behind that curtain is our flatscreen TV and my children wouldn’t be very happy with me if something were to obscure their latest series! Oh, the decorating struggles!
This is the brass version, but it also comes in nickel if you prefer a silvery finish! Oh, and it’s also suitable for use in the bathroom. You might recognise the style as Liv has a matching Nora pendant in her room (take a peek here).
In the studio
A few years ago I made the big move out of my home office to a studio in the centre of Malmö, and I’ve never looked back! It certainly helps that I share my studio with two lovely, talented ladies (so many laughs as well as support and words of encouragement).
Last week, I set up this Curves No.1 table lamp on my desk, and I have to say there was a lot of excitement ‘Oohing and Ahhing’ as we gathered around to admire it. The brass, rattan and linen details are beautiful! It’s not all only aesthetics though – the height is adjustable and the lamp swivels, so it’s highly practical too!
Here’s a closer look at the fine brass base and details.
You might also be excited (I was) to discover this table lamp has a sister – the Curves No.1 floor lamp. Which now stands proudly beside the studio sofa.
I was so happy to discover that this lamp was equally easy to put together – it took seconds for it to be up and running (I’m not one for a major amount of fuss, are you?).
The lamp features the same brass and rattan details. And I love that it combines traditional touches with a modern aesthetic. It could fit in anywhere and be moved around at whim!
It also features a foot button to turn it on and off – big bonus in my eyes!
I hope you like these lamps as much as I do – and have enjoyed a peek inside my home and studio today.
You can read discover more about them and see the full collection at Hudson Valley Lighting Group International (ships worldwide).
You can also see more of their lamps throughout my home and cabin here:
