… a FABULOUS tripod lamp, in the corner of one of my design idol’s homes (well… her previous home, but still). Erin Gates of Elements of Style has made a name for herself through her blog, and quickly risen in the world of interior design.
The Every Girl featured her rented flat about a year ago, and as I was peeking through the archives, I came across this feature. As you can imagine, I was super stoked when I spotted a tripod lamp in this space, that is eerily similar to the one I just bought for our living room.
All I could think was… Erin Gates loves tripod lamps too!!
Is it silly that I got that excited about it?? Totally. Do I feel like my decision has been totally validated
even though my best friend wasn’t a fan of the tripod lamp? ABSOLUTELY.
I constantly hear about making design decisions that stay true to who you are, no matter what is on trend in the moment.
If you love classic pieces but modern lines are in, go with your gut. If you like a little side table shaped like an elephant, but think it’s a little “out there”… who cares, if it makes you happy. I know that having unique pieces that you love is what makes your space stand out, but I’m my own worst enemy when it comes to second guessing decisions.
Despite the pressure to go with what “safe”, I’m glad I went with the tripod lamp. I love it, and not everyone else has to… but it’s good to know that Erin Gates would approve….
