Love Your Space Challenge: Jan 8th

We might get snow today!! I know some of you are way over snow but we are leaving in one week for Okinawa and I really want to see snow before we go. lol

Just a couple of more days to work on our living rooms and then we will move on.  Today’s challenge is simple.  Scope out your room and see if any table lamps could use a boost! You may be surprised how much difference a few books placed underneath a lamp can change your table vignette and overall look of your space.  This is also a great solution for leveling two different sized lamps flanking a couch or another piece of furniture. jan8-post-640
