Magnificent mercury

Back in September I got an amazing orange table lamp (seen here) from Home Goods when my mom came to visit. I searched for months but couldn’t find anything I liked that coordinated with it for the other side of the couch. My mom must be a lucky charm because I fell in love with another lamp when she came to visit last month!

Since I saved a ton by DIY-ing our bedroom lamps, I didn’t mind paying $39.99 for this “mercury glass” one from Home Goods. I always thought of mercury glass as kind of old fashioned and dirty but the more I looked at this lamp, the more I had to have it. Then it got me thinking…how else could I incorporate it into our place? We have an overall turquoise/orange/green color scheme going on but metallic accents look good with almost everything!

Here are a few pieces that I’m loving. I gravitate toward the more polished metallics but I’m trying to open my mind to other decorating ideas.

Vases | West Elm

Finial | Urban Outfitters

Serving Tray | Macy’s

Pendant Light | Pottery Barn

Trinket Box | Anthropologie

Even though I am a modern girl and will likely stay addicted to the super shiny silver and gold, it’s fun to play around with eclectic pieces and make them work in your home.
