Happiness is HOMEGOODS!
I’m creating an office for myself in our basement.  It’s a bit of a challenge – for many reasons:
1.  our basement is one of those scary, partially unfinished basements!  Dark and murky with no light.
2.  the room that I’ve designated as my “office” has few electrical outlets, peeling plaster walls, and a hideous dark green wall-to-wall carpet.  It also has a ceiling fan/light combination (REALLY special when you’re trying to work on a client’s color scheme!)
3.  lastly, most importantly, I have very little funds to make this space look AB FAB!
So – where does one go when one has limited funds – well – HomeGoods, of course!

I scoured all of metro Atlanta to look for the perfect pair of HomeGoods lamps for my office.  I found lots of great lamps and all of them were really well-priced.  Here are a few of my favorites. 
Do you have a favorite?

Loved the texture on these two white lamps.  The one on the right was perfect for a beach house.
The blue/white combination of these bamboo lamps with acrylic bases caught my eye….

I, especially, loved these owl lamps – so charming!  I’m not normally an owl lover – but, they just spoke (or hooted) to me! 
Anyhoot…I foudn and bought a gorgeously affordable crystal column lamp that had my name all over it.  But, sadly, there was no match to be found (despite spending needless hours traveling all of metro Atlanta to find its match.
BUT, while on my quest, I found many other HomeGoods goodies!

These smaller scale mirrors would be great in an Entry or Powder Room.
This circular rope mirror would look great in a beach house or a teen girl’s room!
Thought this might be nice in my son’s nautically-inspired room.
                  Faux rustic painted board mirror.  So many places to hang this baby! 
     Maybe a beach or mountain house, boys or girls room…I was thinking our playroom…
And, HomeGoods always has a great selection of well-priced baskets.
Happy Shopping!
