I was delighted to see this four-year-old boy’s room featured in Traditional Home Magazine this month. The room was designed by Melissa Warner of Massucco Warner Miller design firm in San Francisco. I love the boldly painted horizontal stripes of navy and white paired with a pop of mandarine orange. It almost lends itself to a modern nautical feel. To make the room more juvenile Melissa added a Jonathan Adler Giraffe Lamp (pictured below). Although I adore this lamp and I think it can be used for years in a home it carries a hefty price tag of $395.
To get a similar look with a fraction of the price, I suggest these adorable paper lamps found at B. Braithwaite in Atlanta, GA.
They only cost $88 each and also come in bear and elephant shapes as seen below.
Now please excuse the quality of the next image, I only had my mobile phone on me when I saw this lamp and it is not available on-line. For an inexpensive modern porcelin lamp, this elephant from Pottery Barn Kids is adorable. You can’t beat the $59 price tag. They are only available in stores and the Atlanta store has plenty in stock (check your nearest Pottery Barn Kids for details).
If you want the option of a little more color, I also like the whimsical MyPetLamps by Offi. They are available in six colors: soft white, mellow yellow, sky blue, sunset orange, hot pink and misty green. They are made of non-toxic odorless plastic and the low voltage 12v replaceable bulb creates a soothing glow in a child’s room.
