Splurge Vs Save time again. With the works continuing around the house, I’m now thinking about the study and in particular…studio lamps.
Our study is very petitie, infact it was the previous owners pantry, so I want to keep the decor quite plain and use statement piece to add the edge to the space and decorate with muted colours.
Studio Lamp Splurge
This splurge is from a new online find called Places and Spaces. Designed by Fambuena, this stylish studio lamp comes in white, red or black. Gorgeous as it is, it’ll set you back £259. A real shame, as it is really beautiful and will suit the desk space perfectly.
Studio Lamp Save
I’m a regular browser on Dwell and was rather excited to find a save option there. Their black Lid studio lamp is a snip at £79. Equally stylish and strong in design, I actualy prefer the save this week. Not just for it’s cost saving, but I like the addition of wood to the lamp.
Which do you prefer?

If you follow my blog regularly you will know that we are amidst a full top to toe renovation of the inside of the house this year. As such, upheaval is a word we have come to accept as a family.
Since we moved in, Munch has made a makeshift bedroom in the previous owners study (complete with wall to wall fitted office furniture). Her big girl room is decorated, but we are still deciding on doors and carpets, so it’s been slow progress.
I wish I could click my fingers are it would be all finished. The lovely Emma over at Life at the Littlewood said only last week that major house works is like having another very demanding child. She is right! Stressful is an understatement!
The timely renovations have coincided with the busiest time at work, which has led to a shorter temper than usual on my part.
The headache will be over one day. For now, I can’t see the light and the house is upside down. Munch like a trooper though is taking it all in her stride. She even asks where the plumber is on a daily basis.
