Entryway Lamp Vignette

Entryway vignette using a lamp, vase, and mirror.

It's been a weird summer here in Sacramento.  We have had numerous weeks of rain in the midst of our 100 degree heat.  One stormy afternoon I was doing things around the house and noticed that it seemed so dark inside.

And no, those are not scary cat eyes below...but sure seems creepy, huh?  I have no idea what it is!!!

I grabbed a lamp and added it to our entryway along with some leaves cut from our yard.  With a few lit candles and the cool breeze coming through the windows, it felt like fall.  We usually have a lamp in our entryway in the cooler months but for whatever reason it gets moved when it's not being used.  It felt refreshing to have a reason to change things up.

I know this summer is already flying by and summer will be here before we know it!  But it was such a beautiful afternoon pretending it was fall without the busyness of fall.  And it freshened up our little entryway perfectly.  I may not turn on that lamp again until October but it still makes me happy!

The faux glass lamp was found at the new Savers Thrift Store in Vacaville (near the outlets) and was quite a find.  I love the modern and sleek look of it.  The shade I found at Target.

And when it is not overcast and dark, it's been looking like this, all fresh and summery.  Who says lamps have to be just for fall?  Apparently I was the only one saying that.  Oops.

And yes, I just showed you six pictures of practically almost the same lamp and mirror.  I am that obsessed with it.  Forgive me.  :)

// What are you looking forward to this Fall?  Too soon to even mention?!


  1. Fall is my favorite season, so it's never too soon to mention it. I consider September the real "new year" because it reminds me of going back to school.

    Um...so is there a ghost photobombing your pictures? :(

  2. I'm new to your blog and have been inspired by your lovely, fresh decor. I love this entryway vignette, just gorgeous!

    And oh how I love fall...I am really excited to cozy things up, light spicy smelling candles and bake fall treats :)
