Can I talk about how much I hate filling in the “subject” line of blog posts? I feel like it’s so incredibly difficult to come up with something that will make you want to immediately read what is to follow. I mean I only go to blogs to look at the pretty pictures and never even notice the subject line. I say just get to the point because I want to get to the pictures and the point of this post is lighting. Heck, we’re not even gonna talk about it really. I just pulled together these lamps I’m obsessed with and am just leaving it at that. Well, that’s a lie. I’m actually “talking” about lighting because when I walk into my apartment at night, I enter into darkness because there is no light to turn on. I’m working on fixing that problem. Hopefully I can conjure up one of these babies for my living room so when I flip the switch I see one of these beauties staring back at me. (I wish)

Okay, now for what you’re really here for:

(Apologizes for misleading links. These lamp links were found a long time ago so their original sources are not the same. It will lead you to the sight it was found.)



And “Moody Monday” continues with a cabin look for those of us who like to experience woodsy living in style, or if you’re wanting an outdoor feel in your tiny city apartment.

So I’m going to attempt to create some kind of style or mood board every Monday (hints the name “Moody Monday” –  because who isn’t…). I figured if I assigned a certain topic to a day of the week, it would make posting a bit easier and more consistent. I’m still trying to figure out Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Oh yeah, and Friday. So…I’ve got some brainstorming to do.

Anyway, to start off the first official Moody Monday post, I’ve got a living room for those girly, modern, rustic ladies out there. I’m really into these colors right now (coral, cyan, olive, black & white, and turquoise). They keep popping up in my pins (I do A LOT of pinning these days).
