This is what I feel like shouting from the rooftops! Has it really been five months since I last blogged? Yes. Yes, it has.
BUT... I HAVE AN EXCUSE. A PRETTY DARN CUTE ONE.
To celebrate our little comeback at The Tiny Abode, I am teaming up with Lamps.com in this blog post. Lamps.com contacted me to do a review on one of their products. I felt that this would be the perfect motivation to get me back into the joys of blogging. More importantly, I cleaned my desk!!
I am reviewing the Adesso Graham Desk Lamp.
I chose this lamp due to its sleek design and pharmacy / industrial style. As you can see, I have a quite traditional French Provincial desk. I needed something to modernize the room... add a little pizazz, if you will. I was not too familiar with LED lighting prior to using this lamp. I was quite intrigued! See that tiny circle in the middle in the pic below... that's it! Crazy, I know. It's so tiny!
But check this out!
For such a tiny bulb, it gives off substantial lighting. I purposely took this photograph at night so that you could see the real affect. The lighting was not what I expected at first, and it took me some time to get use to it. Most of the standard bulbs which we purchase in stores are more of a warm light. Warm lighting definitely has its place. However, having the right type of lighting in the appropriate setting is what makes a space work. I might not choose to have an LED light in my living room; a space where I want to feel warm and inviting... cozy... go ahead fall asleep on my couch. In my work space, I need something that is going to keep me awake! It's not unbearable, by no means. It's appropriate. My husband, who is a painter, is always proclaiming how essential it is to have the right type of lighting. Any photographer would second that!
Here are some perks about LED lighting provided by Adesso:
* Energy Efficient
* LED's last up to 50,000 hours
* SAFE: does not get hot
* SAFE: shatterproof, vibration resistant
Oh, and I added some original oil paintings by Jason Espey Art. That wall was crying for some attention. See what a little ol' lamp can inspire you to do! The space really does feel so much more inviting! We have a lot of work to do in the bedroom still, but this is definitely a nice start!
And here's a lil' something to get you motivated!
