What I’m Loving? The Delta Duo in GOLD

Posted by


Gold deltaduo

Tis the season for celebrating, and in celebration of their long-time partnership Robert Abbey and Lamps Plus have released a GORGEOUS new, limited-edition table lamp in three really stunning colors. It’s called the Delta Duo. So geometric chic, right? It puts an entirely updated spin on the classic gourd lamp. It’s contemporary, it’s retro, it’s a must-have! I personally can’t wait to place one in a project, or…maybe somewhere in my new home?

My favorite color is the gold and white one, because it’s speaking directly to my current obsession with all things gold and brass! I mean…this is one of the most jaw-dropping trends that I’m seeing EVERYWHERE from design magazines to market to my own jewelry box!

Happy lamp shopping!

"Tobi Fairley"

Today, I’m taking you on another “The Look for Less” adventure.  Perhaps you’re trying to put together a room with great style but have a less than great budget.  Don’t fret!  Pictured above is the family room of my home recently featured in Traditional Home.  I’ve put together a few options that are far more affordable but yield a similar look.  Here’s what I found:

1. ART.COM Chambered Nautilus Print by Jane Burton  2.  HOME DECORATORS COLLECTION Montmartre Dresser  3. ROBERT ABBEY Orange Genie Lamp  4. PINDLER & PINDLER Crestwood in Lime  5.  DURALEE Large Tangerine  6. TCHOTCHKE CHIC Hand-Painted Lime Garden Stool  7.  DURALEE Damask Black Tie by Duralee



And don’t forget about this week’s book giveaway!  You have until Friday at noon to register to win a copy of the new book The Collected Tabletop

Here are my top tips for finding great deals on designer looks:

  • Target is very on trend with their home decor selections.  They even have collections by fabulous designers.
  • Stores like TJ Maxx have new inventory almost daily and you never know what treasure you may find!
  • Become a savvy web shopper.  Learn how to do a thorough “shopping search” on sites like google and yahoo.  This is the easiest way to find great bargains!
