Lamp Photos

There are so many pretty lamps here at Doyles on the Dunes.

We were greeted by this one upon entering the place last Thursday afternoon…

Those crackled glass finishes get me every time, and I think the color of this one is so gorgeous!

There are two of these nifty little numbers sitting atop the side tables at each end of the sofa in the sunroom…

And this awesome aqua one resides in one of the guest bedrooms…

And speaking of awesome lamps in guest bedrooms…check out these vintage hanging ones in the room with the twin-szied beds…

The light they cast through the rattan is so pretty and warm at night! They must have been used or left outside at some point, because the metal part that’s attached to the wall is beautifully rusted.

And not that there’s anything wrong with the natural, warm wood walls- but can you imagine how lovely those pendants would look popping against a pretty painted wall?

I had a major “I Love Lamp” moment in the dining room when we first arrived the other day…

You remember “Brick Talmadge” from the movie Anchorman, don’t you?


He loves lamp, too.

PS- Hope you’ll swing by for our It’s Fall Y’allΒ link party tomorrow…

…we can’t wait to see your Fall-themed mantels, shelves, ledges!

    Some things are just natural classics: the lamps (I actually have that aqua lamp except in white) and “Anchorman”. My son just hung that poster up in his new college dorm room last week!

    I love love the green and white bedding on those twin beds!! And the lamps too of course. :)

    What kind of flooring is in the twin bedroom? My friend and I were just talking about her basement in Montana that she wants to rent out. She has paneled walls like that which she loves and won’t paint, but she doesn’t know what kind of flooring to put down.

      Hi Allison! It looks like a regular old wood floor to me. I’m not sure what kind of wood it is, but it looks like it’s been here a while! Love it! πŸ˜€

      • says

        Hmm…I told her I wouldn’t do hardwoods with wood all over the walls, that it would be too much wood. I know you and I would paint the walls white, but does it work the way it is? Are they light or dark toned?

        • Layla says

          Hey Allison!
          She could always use a big rug to break up the wood walls and wood floor!
          The wood walls here are a medium-toned wood, and it feels very comfortable and homey! :-)

    Hey Layla.
    I am just discovering I am lamp challenged.
    I never really notice too much what they look like.
    I am more I need lots of light when it’s dark out.
    I do believe I may become a lamp hugged yet. hehe
    P.S. You look so gor-ge-ous with your hair and maybe too thin

    • Layla says

      Hey Geri!
      I’ve got something gnarly going on with my stomach, and docs can’t seem to figure out what it is. :-(
      I’ve lost 14 lbs. since January ’cause I’m afraid to eat anything that’ll upset it.
      Hoping to get it all figured out soon so I can start eating like I used to again!

    • Layla says

    I love lamp too! I have so many that I pick up everywhere. Love the ones in the cottage. Hope you are having a great time in Tybee! I just may move there one day. Love it!

    Love the lamps Layla:)
    Was wondering if you could share the names of those lovely wall paints in the yellow and blue. They are so yummy.

  9. Amanda says

    I am beyond excited to see your “it’s fall y’all” ideas I found your website & have just been in awe of all things done! I absolutely love to decorate. All your ideas inspire me :) Thanks

    Love the lamps. It’s about time I update mine.
    I am looking forward to the link party tomorrow. I had so much fun being challenged and decorating mine. It will be so much fun to see how everyone’s turns out.

    LOVE the lamps! I totally agree about the pendants & painting the wood walls. Might have to paint the white furniture though?

    I think lighting fixtures are the ABSOLUTE best way to transform a room without breaking the piggy bank! LOVE the circle lamp for some reason, and that’s unusual for me because I lean towards “square” shapes…

  12. says

    I’m so glad you explained where “I love lamp” came from! I hear people saying that phrase and people write it as their status on fb sometimes and I never knew what in the world it meant . . . I should watch that movie. πŸ˜‰
    You are gorgeous, by the way.

    Oh my goodness, I LOVE those quilts on the twin beds! Do they have tags on them that says who makes them? I’ve been looking for a beautiful, but modern quilt for our guest bedroom forever!

  14. says

    Love the lamps! Especially the blue one – gorgeous!

    I know what you mean about loving lamps. We had ho-hum lamps in our living room for years because I was looking for the perfect fit. One day, while in a store for something else, I found two lamps that I TOTALLY loved, and my hubby could not figure out why I was in such a rush to get across the store to grab them before someone else did.

  15. Tina K says

    We are closing this Friday and will have my first ever mantle to decorate. I am STOKED about the party here tomorrow! I can’t wait to put some of your fabulous ideas into play once we get all settled in. I am currently clueless abou the living room, so I’ll be scouring your blog hard for ideas.

  16. says

    Love! My mom and I were out shopping a couple of months ago and, of course, we both commented on pretty lamps we saw. She said, “You’re a ‘Lamp Lady’ just like your mama”. So true, how can you beat something that’s beautiful and gives light?

  17. Deneen says

    Layla I love the lamp with all the circles! I love circles! Hope you guys are having fun!

  18. Leigh in Dallas says

    OMG Layla! I have a system called LAMP at my job and my friend says that all the time! I totally didn’t remember that part of Anchorman until he pulled up the video clip.

    i love lamps. I love lamps and the old fashioned bedspreads. What r they called? U know the kind, where the design stands out on the material.

  20. Amanda says

    I’m not sure if I’ve ever commented here before but I’m definitely a lurker…LOVE your blog. Anyhoo…I love those lamps but girl, more than anything I am just loving your hair. You have totally inspired me to warm mine up too. You are gorgeous!

  22. says
