Merry and bright

The right lighting can make or break a room. When it’s right, you hardly notice it, but when the lighting is off, it is nearly impossible to focus on anything else.

When choosing light sources for a space in your home, we recommend considering things like a dimmer bulb or  vintage bulb, that can add depth and personality, and can contribute to the overall theme or decor style or a room.

Always, always, considering the function of a room when choosing your lighting. Is the room for eating? Reading? Relaxing? Do you want the lighting to be bright and clinical? Or to subtly blend in with the decor?

We offer a great selection of country lamps and lighting from accent lamps, country lamp shades, candle pans and candle holders, night lights, and battery-operated candles.

A guest-room makeover in 6 easy steps!

There are few things more satisfying for a home decor enthusiast than doing a makeover. The good news is that you can do this without breaking the bank, and finish in time for your holiday visitors. Here are six steps for a quick and easy guest-room makeover.

1. Choose a theme. We’re probably all guilty of bringing home a fun impulse buy that doesn’t really go with anything, so we stash it in the guest room and pretty soon we have a disorderly mix of country, modern, vintage and…what’s that? We find that first choosing a bedding set, and then decorating around that theme is easier than doing it the other way around.

2. De-clutter! Often subtracting, rather than adding, can breathe new life into an old room. Save the items you cherish and donate the rest to charity.

3. Accessorize with care. You’ve gone to the trouble of de-cluttering, so the last thing you want to do is add more stuff! A simple accent lamp or throw blanket might be all you need.

4. Repurpose and rearrange. You don’t have to buy all new furniture to make a room look new. Sometimes just moving things around will give the room a whole new personality.

5. Deck the windows! Coordinating window treatments can help emphasize your central theme. Most of our bedding and decor sets come with a variety of country curtains to complete the look.

6. Take a step back. You may want to shut the door to that guest room for a few days and then return with a fresh perspective. Would that lamp look better on the dresser than the nightstand? Would a braided rug tie the whole thing together?

Bonus step: Don’t forget the guest bathroom! The same rules apply here. Do you want to carry over your theme into the bathroom decor, or choose completely different colors and patterns?

Hit the lights part II: 90 new lamps!

Hello and happy new year! We hope you had a fantastic holiday. We were pretty swamped for a while, but it’s time to start blogging again….

We just added about 90 new accent lamps, table lamps and lamp shades from Park Designs, and since our first lighting post was so popular, we thought we should do another one to share some of these great new items with you.

Here are just a few of our favorites….

Accent lamps

These rustic onion lamps are so country, and really warm up a room.

New also are these unique and homey candelabra lamps in red and black:

(That shade you see above is the Penny Quilt shade and it’s available in several different sizes, and also in black.)

These oil lamps offer another fun look. We think these country lamps can either be rustic and primitive, or really delicate and graceful, depending on your decor.

We also have a fantastic variety of candlestick lamps that really do look great in any room.

Lamp Shades

The punched tin lamp shades have always been a favorite of our customers, and we’ve added more styles, called the metal dot dash lamps.

An oldie but a goodie…the Sturbridge lamp shades in black and red. Classic, simple, these lamp shades match nearly any decor.

And as noted above, the Penny Quilt shade is available in black or red, and in 10″ or 12″ shades.

Hit the lights

Winter is right around the corner, and we thought it would be a great time to share some of our best-selling (and favorite!) accent lamps and lighting ideas to keep your home warm and inviting during these cold winter months.

Accent lamps

The  wide star pottery jug lamp is on of our best-selling lamps, and we offer several other items in this design, like pitchers, jugs, and canisters that would look great in a kitchen or even a den or sitting room.

Accent the Wide Star collection with a piece of garland or a braided rug:


Our primitive bowl lampis also a big seller (and my personal favorite). The bold colors go with a variety of decors, and there’s really nothing else like it. (But hurry, limited quantities are available!)

And if you really love this design, we sell an electric tart warmer that is very similar!

You can browse the rest of our accent lamps here.


We offer a great variety of shades to mix and match with any of our lamps.

The Sturbridge wine shade is by far our best-selling shade:

It is available in three sizes: 6″, 10″ and 12″. (And also in more colors!) The entire Sturbridge collection is available on our website and is well-loved by our customers.

The Cambridge plaid shades are also very popular, and can be accented with matching curtains and valances.


Our punched tin shade is another popular style. These come in a variety of sizes, designs and colors, and are easy to coordinate with virtually any of our home decor patterns.

One idea: pair the Red Star punched tin shade in a bedroom with the vintage star quilted throw:

The punched tin lamps also come in night light form!

How do you like to stay warm and cozy during the winter?
