The elusive K-mart lamp

Header note: this post is NOT sponsored by k-mart. I don't do sponsored posts - I just love this lamp!

Have you noticed a little something funky going down at k-mart recently? We're talking the Australian k-mart here, not sure how funky your k-mart is, US folks.

They have been bringing out some pretty darn stylish stuff. Just yesterday when I picked up the lamp that this post is all about, I spied my next coveted item - a wooden based reading lamp with a copper shade ..

So, I saw this pretty lamp in my local k-mart about 3-4 months ago and thought, ooh - I like it!, but I didn't buy it that day. In fact, the next day when I returned, the shelf where 15-20 of these lamps had been sitting was empty. How odd. A bulk buy for a boutique hotel? A boarding school doing a funky face lift? My mind boggled ...

I have been checking weekly for this lamp ever since. There was a little label placed on the shelf saying "out of stock". Online, there were plenty to be had - in other k-marts - just not mine.

Skip to yesterday and there they were, lamps a plenty back on the replenished shelf! So, I bought one of course ... only now I want the fore mentioned copper one too .. and maybe another one of these just in case ...

Living room makeover for Lucy

A friend of a friend asked for my help recently in giving her living room, in her words, "a much needed makeover". 

After visiting Lucy's home and getting a feel for the space, looking at her other rooms and having a lovely chat to get an idea of her style, I came up with a few ideas for her space. 
Both her home and style are quite feminine, so I included some soft pinks and buttery yellows, but also some more masculine, rustic elements, such as the leather sofa and wooden pieces, to help balance the space out.

My favourite pieces are the Safari Living copper lamp, which Lucy can sit on top of some coffee table type books on the eggcup stool off to the side in her room. I also love the Aboriginal art from Artlandish. It's a big investment piece, but it's quite large and by a well known artist, so the value will definitely increase - not that you would want to sell such a beautiful piece of art! 

I loved putting this space together for her. Below is a sample of what I proposed. 
The pieces are all from Australian stores, in $A.
