Home Inspiration: 12 Tasteful Table Lamps For $50 Or Less

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.

Check out my new lamps after the jump and click for more affordable table lamps.

Hi/Lo: Sexy Silver Shorts

Hi/Lo Silver Shorts

When I found these elegant Kate Spade shorts, I couldn’t help but swoon. Imagine sipping champagne on a yacht in these bottoms, as your tan legs stretch out lazily… OK, so that isn’t quite my life, but a girl can dream. However, I will opt to wear the more affordable MinkPink version the next time I do a beer tasting on Manhattan By Sail’s clipper.

Hi/Lo: Black & White Mules

Hi/Lo: Black and White Mules

If you are flirting with the idea of mules this spring, consider a black and white, color-blocked pair as a great way to modernize this ’90s trend. These Fendi patent leather mules are exquisite and the color and texture contrasts create a clean, mod-meets-futuristic look. Unfortunately, I am unwilling to spend $850 on any shoe, let alone something that may be a passing trend! I think I’ll try Charles David’s version for $79.95 at DSW instead.
