We had a mishap a little while back with the lamp in our entry way. It got broken. It happens – no big deal. And our entry way is relatively dark, requiring a lamp for when guests are over, so they can find their way in and out of the house.
But replacing a lamp is not very easy in our house. My husband has strong opinions about two things decor related: lamps and rugs. It is not that he doesn’t have strong opinions about other things, it is more that he and I see eye-to-eye on everything else. I tend to be more accepting of lighting options in general. He seems to be particular. And though we have been married for almost 10 years, I have yet to discern what appeals to him. He is like a moving target in regards to lamps – I can’t pin him down.
