I am decidedly indecisive these days. This indecisiveness ranges from what to have for dinner (ask Chris how fun that is ;) ... to what I want to do with my life. I'm usually have incredibly strong gut instincts, which creates quick decisions. But, we have some pretty big *life* decisions we need to make in the next few months and I find myself paralyzed by this indecisiveness. It's bad friends. So instead of thinking about all the big indecisions, I'm focusing on the small ones. Obviously.
A few months ago Chris and I bought a couple lamps at an antique store. They match, they're curvy-awesome, they're a hideous color and they were $5 each. A quick coat of paint and they'll be heading for the living room.
But see, I did something wild and crazy the other day. I painted them turquoise. Like, bright turquoise. At first it was a definite YES! But then my decidedly neutral loving mother said ew. Sigh. Which of course made me rethink them. (Side note: How do mom's DO that?) Now, whether I actually like the color or not changes ... on an hourly basis. My poor husband.

I've pulled some beautiful images of turquoise lamps. Maybe I needed the reassurance that while not common, bright lamps can be beautiful in the right room. But you know what? I'm not looking for common, and part of the appeal is that not many people have funky turquoise lights.
So my question for YOU, my lovely readers, is what are your thoughts on bright funky lamps? Great way to add color and style to a room? Or completely obnoxious attention hogs? :)
