Lights and Rugs…again

I was online looking for a few things we need and I stumbled across SHADES OF LIGHT. I fell in love…like real love. had everything you see below. The light below with the trellis print is stylish, but yet simple. I need that in a room badly. But If I bought this, I feel like I would need a solid rug, and I really love the rug below.

lig1 OMG..look at these beauties

lig2 lig3   In comes this old photo shopped photo as reminder that I love this rug dearly and wish I had it in my home. It comes in different colors, and that's the part that really confuses me. But the gray is at the top of the list as of now.  It’s sold out in most stores, but Shades of Light has it just not on sale or discounted.



Look at this lamp. Black and White. Perfect. I would change out the shade to something more modern. And look what they have the lamp standing on. Yep, my favorite rug print again, only in another color. Am I being tortured here?


Ikat, Ikat, multiple colors, and in a rug. HELP ME SOMEBODY!


These rugs are a honorable mention just because I love the pattern on them. That blue is a nice fresh color that is loveable.



Have you purchased anything from this store before?

i haven't even heard of them! thanks for the inspire :) i love the shades, they would look perfect in your house, and i'm kinda thinking they might be fun, even with the pattern on the rug, seriously. if one hung just high enough not to intefere, it could work. have fun!
