I am having a conundrum. I got a lamp, from my mum, as an early birthday present. I picked it out myself and ultimately chose it because I love the base. At the time we got it, though, I wasn’t so sure I liked the shade that came with it (above, left). So we got an alternative shade that I thought would go well with my gold-infused couch. Once I got it home, however, I became confused. The original shade isn’t so bad, after all. But I do like the shapely gold one, too. So I decided to put it to you, dear readers: Which shade do you think I should keep? Consider the red curtains and gold, carpet bag couch, and the fact that my room is largely shades of brown with deep red accents. And bear in mind that Christmas tree won’t be there much longer!
