and there was light.

We have lived in our apartment for over 2 years now and have not managed to find a lighting fixture for the living room we both like. (It’s just been a simple bulp hanging from the ceiling, classy, I know.) I have been wanting a chandelier, since we have super high ceilings, french doors and red velvet curtains. The boyfriend wasn’t so much for it. Well, as faith goes, 1000 miles away from home, we walk into a tiny store and fall in love with a lamp-shade. It’s shiny but simple, has details but looks classy and we both adore it!! As travelling is one of my biggest passion, the maps, delicately engraved on it make it so much more special and meaningful. Especially since we bought it while travelling. Since it was a little big for my suitcase, we had it shipped and I am now anxiously awaiting for the package to arrive. I will be sure to post a picture once its up, for now the one from the website will have to do. (Allthough it really doesn’t do it justice!!)

    What an awesome lamp!
    I can understand the frustrations with not being able to find one, we are going on one and a half year and have yet to discover the "right one".
