Tiffany Lamps to Spruce Up a Drab Apartment

Metal-Hanging-Wall-Art-ideas-for-Living-RoomI had some friends visit my new apartment for the first time yesterday and they immediately questioned my decorating ability. It’s not really my strong suit and they were giving me some pointers about how I could spruce things up. Apparently, my problem is a tendency to keep things looking very drab and dull, when I’m left to my own elements.

Luckily, one of my friends has decided to help me add some life to my place. Her first suggestion was that I add some Tiffany lamps to certain areas of the apartment, because my apartment is low on lighting and there’s not a lot of interesting décor pieces either. I actually really like them; I think that these lamps are definitely a good start.

The Belasco Theatre and its Tiffany Lighting

ISHERWOOD-Jp-1-articleInlineThe Belasco Theatre is a Broadway theatre that opened in 1907 in Manhattan; it was initially known as the Stuyvesant Theatre, but was renamed for the man it was designed for: playwright, director, and theatrical producer David Belasco. The designer was George Keister, who also designed the Apollo Theater and the Bronx Opera House, among other famous buildings.

The Belasco Theatre is known for its Tiffany lighting and ceiling panels, as well as murals that were done by artist Everett Shinn. The theatre is where Marlon Brando had his first widely recognized success, which has since been known as a moment that helped jump-start his career and move him eventually towards film.

Tiffany Style Floor Lamps after an Earthquake

c6667An earthquake struck near our home recently; it didn’t do an enormous amount of damage because it wasn’t a particularly heinous quake, but we did lose a few furnishings in our home to the earthquake. After the earthquake knocked all of our lamps over and broke them, we saw this as a sign to replace them with something completely different.

The lamps that we had initially had were pretty bland and uninteresting. This was an opportunity for my husband and I to pick out some lamps that actually were appealing to the eye. We landed on Tiffany style floor lamps because they looked so much nicer than any of the other choices that had been presented to us while we were looking for lamps.

Writing with Tiffany Desk Lamps

Salvation Army 002I’m a writer and I prefer writing things by hand before I finalize them on the computer screen; I’m not really sure what it is, but there’s something that feels more authentic to me about writing by hand. There are certainly some issues I run into with this, like the fact that it’s much easier to go back and change things on a computer, but sometimes I think that ability is what causes writer’s block in the first place.

Another issue you can sometimes run into is not having the proper lighting in the room where you want to write and perhaps re-read some of the things you’ve already written. That’s why I’ve got some Tiffany desk lamps on my desk to brighten up the place and make it a more comfortable place for me to sit down and get some genuine writing done.

Replacing Old Lamps with Tiffany Style Table Lamps

TP2TAfter my husband decided that a giant ‘Coors Light’ sign in the kitchen was appropriate décor for the home, I decided that I would do a little of my own redecorating in the other rooms of the house with a more tasteful style, with the hopes that nicer furniture might convince him that maybe he shouldn’t be the one who’s in charge of decorations on pretty much any occasion.

One thing that I decided to do was toss out our old tacky lamps and replace them with much more elegant Tiffany style table lamps. Even though my husband has admitted that these lamps are much nicer, it hasn’t been enough yet to convince him that I should be the one who does all the decorating. I guess that means I’m going to have to get creative.

A Tiffany Lamp Soothes After A Bad Day At Work

tif-c-gal006I had the longest day ever at work the other day; I was just dealing with so many irate customers and getting yelled at by them. On top of that, my boss had recently lost a major account and he was really upset so I was getting yelled at by him as well because things had been pretty slow with our company lately. All of the yelling coming from all directions made for an unpleasant day.

The worst part of it all was that it was happening on a Monday and it didn’t make me particularly excited for the rest of the week. By the end of the work day, I was completely exhausted and really not feeling very good at all. All I wanted to do at the end of the day was curl up next to a Tiffany lamp with a good book and a glass of wine.

Tiffany Style Pendant Lights For The Redecorated Living Room

P14155686I decided recently that the living room was in some serious need of redecoration if I was going to start entertaining guests. I’ve been wanting to start having dinner parties and wine tastings and things like that for quite some time but I wanted to make certain that my home was in the best possible condition before I started trying to host these sorts of parties.

The first thing that I did was replace all the furniture and make it so the furniture in the living room would open the room up a bit more. I figured that this would be perfect for hosting parties. I also repainted the walls and got the carpets professionally cleaned. I finished up the redecorating by replacing all of the lighting in the room with Tiffany style pendant lights.

My Mother Used Tiffany Sytle Lighting

Green Tiffany Style Lamp 14 Feb 2010 gI know that my mother had a lot of good taste when it came to decorating my childhood home. I know this because I have good taste as well and I have recreated a lot of the things that I remember her doing when it comes to decorating my own home. One thing that I’ve admittedly chosen to recreate is the way she had set up her lighting.

Lighting is very important for a home. There are plenty of different kinds of lighting options, but my mother always used Tiffany style lighting and in emulating her design choices, I have also chosen Tiffany lighting for my home. I’m always getting compliments about how comfortable the lighting feels in my home, so I know I must be doing something right!

Redecorating With A Tiffany Table Lamp

tiffany1Some people see redecorating as a pain, but honestly, I see it as something I live for. Before I met my husband and we had our children, I was studying Interior Design in school and was planning to design the insides of restaurants. I never got a chance to do that professionally, but whenever we redecorate part of our family home, I always get a chance to show off my skills.

Most recently, the room that my husband and I decided to redecorate was the living room. Generally, when we’re doing any remodeling or redecorating, my husband butts out and just leaves everything to me, because he knows I prefer it that way. The first thing that I got for the updated living room is a Tiffany table lamp that I know will tie the room together.

Tiffany Hanging Lamps Light The Party

Tiffany-Hanging-LampA friend of mine recently threw a housewarming wine and cheese tasting party at his new home. I’d never had a chance to see his new place before and I was surprised as to how tastefully it was decorated. He told me that he had hired someone to decorate his home for him and that he was really happy with how everything had ended up turning out.

The furniture in his house all matched very well together and there was a certain style about the home that I thought looked very nice; it didn’t surprise me that he had someone professional put everything together for him, because my friend’s not exactly someone who knows how to pick these kinds of items out himself. The house was well-lit with Tiffany hanging lamps.
