The secret to a sophisticated but affordable living space is pretty pillows and tasteful lamps. These types of functional home décor can polish off the most minimalistic space. This weekend, I ventured out on a mission to update my pathetic $10 bedside lamps with something a little chicer on a budget of $60. Instead of a pattered shade, which would compete with my duvet, I sought out a decorative base. At first I was discouraged by the high price tags, then by my husband's hatred of anything ornate. Finally we agreed on two lamps at T.J. Maxx! The new lamps frame the bed nicely and are a wonderful addition to our otherwise boring nightstands.
