We’ve teamed up with Lamps.com – a family owned lighting business that dates all the way back to 1914, Happy 100 Year birthday to them! – today to share a peek into the blessed, highly sought after, at times bittersweet, bedtime at our homes. Some days we might think forward to it a little too much, or anticipate maybe a little too early in the day, but when it all comes down to it, bedtime is such a sweet time as a parent. So many wonderful hushed conversations, time to talk and giggle and of course, time to read and sing and enjoy each other one more time before lights out! Before we get to our favorite bedtime books, here’s a little bit about the lamp if you’d like to hear!
Lamps.com was so nice to send us some lighting in preparation for today’s post! It was so hard to choose, they have a seriously impressive collection! But, we think the Pixo Desk Lamp is the perfect lamp for a little boys room (or pretty much any room for you modern decor lovers!) It has that high shine lacquer (easy to wipe down!) and sleek simple lines. It boasts a USB cord right at the base which is so nice for charging devices without having to move furniture around to get to the plug! This Pixo Desk Lamp is made by one of Lamps.com’s featured brands, Pablo Designs and their entire collection is so great! Here’s a few more that we have our eye on by Pablo Designs.
1. The Pixo comes in several colors and we debated heavily on whether to try out the “Azzure” or “Glow”. They’re both so great! 2. We also love this Tube Top lamp which has an acrylic base lamp that comes in a bunch of great colors, we loved the clear and red best! 3. Then the Piccola Accent lamp is super cool with its weighted bottom! You can turn and swivel the metal pole so the lightbulb shines where you need it, while the base holds firm! You can see how they decorated the Tube Top lamp into a extra special room in this video here! It’s a touching story of how a soldier who sent home from Iraq with a head injury nominated his wife and now caretaker for a bedroom makeover.
And now back to our bedtime books! Each of us has a special bedtime routine with each of our individual kids, we think it might be fun to talk more about that soon! In the meantime, here are our boys’ most favorite bedtime story books, the ones they request when they say “just onnnne more?”
