monday musings: wanting hollywood regency dome lighting

Well what do you know, Monday is finally here. I know we have all wished the weekend away so we could get to this day. Right. Today, and everyday really, I am on the hunt for that special item that will absolutely complete a space. What is it today? You ask. A hollywood regency brass dome lamp. This is more like a desperate want ad than a list of musings. A desperate, desperate want ad. Obsessive 20 something seeks glamorous, brass, mushroom shaped light fixture. Musts: Must be shiny and must be dome shaped. This bad boy is going to reside in my new office. We have to make this happen. Help! Until then, here are the spaces that are adorned with this light fixture that I am currently lacking. Jelly jealous!

I am lusting after this dining room like woah. The gold accents, the glamorous light fixtures. That brass, dome lamp. Ahhhh. See I told you. Major impact that light packs. My office needs one. Immediately. 
And again. You will not believe it, but the lovely Erika from Small Shop Studio owns both the space above and the space below. Girl is fortunate enough to not have one, but two, vintage brass dome lamps. Sigh. Share the love! I am adoring the lovely glamorous touches in this space. The gilded frames, the pops of pink. It is the perfect place for a girl to get her think on. 
Now I know we have all seen this mushroom, dome lamp on this blog, however, this is what the Doctor ordered. Kelly Wearstler, doing it to me again. Need. 
Another spin on the brass dome lamp. The brass dome lamp extended off of a stone block. Loving this. Definitely loving this. A little mid century mod happening here. I could definitely live with the outcome of this piece. However, I am still avidly searching for the mushroom lamp. 
Oooohhh a floor brass mushroom lamp. Love the contrast it brings residing next to the chrome side table. This fixture is definitely the focal piece for me amongst this space. Wonder why?? 
Another brass dome lamp done right. Absolutely over the top glamorous vignette. That vignette is just so fabulous that it does not even need that dome lamp to stand its ground. The vignette needs to hand it over to poor me. This little blackcented bar area could not be anymore perfectly ornate. 
As you can tell, I love a vignette and a I love a brass dome lamp. Again we have a perfectly styled table that the focal point is definitely that damn lamp. Do you see what I am saying here? It is an obsession. 
We have another extended arm brass dome lamp here that resides on a block of stone. So elegant. I love the natural feel that the stone brings to the piece. Also, who is loving this space and the calm and serenity that it washes over you?

A different flavor of the brass dome lamp, in a major way. Not one, but 5 brass dome lights. Wowza. That floor lamp is the talk of this space. And that is saying a lot since this space is beyond larvely.

So I hope someone answers my want ad because I am pretty sure peeps are getting tired of my desperate pleas for this fixture requirement. Did you all have a great weekend? Any good finds? I will be back tomorrow reporting what I have picked up along the way. Love, L+L
