Go Bold with Accent Lamps

This year I challenge you to go bold in new ways when using colour in your home. For starters, consider decorating with lamps in colors. Step out of the box of the traditional metal lamp bases and into a fresh choice of luminous colored ones. This ideabook allows you to peruse a buffet of candy-coated lamps and provides you with a flavor of this sweet life without the additional calories. What a terrific way to satisfy your sweet tooth while simultaneously adding character to your home.
