So I can’t keep a tidy bedside table. I just can’t. There are many things in my life I keep tidy, some would say neurotically so. This ain’t one. I post this picture knowing you can view and mock my shortcomings. The reason I post it anyway, though, is that I have a crush on my lamp. It came from IKEA and I don’t even care, I love it just the way it is. I put in a 25-watt Edison bulb and it’s just magical. As soon as I turned it on, I realized, firstly, that few things in a room are more important than the lighting, and second, that this is how they give Sleep No More that omnipresent dark warm glow. So that made me giddy.
Also, the framed butterflies were a find at the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market. They are currently my favorite. I am not generally a big butterfly person, but preserved and framed under glass I can totally get behind.
