Tigerlilly Quinn: Five little lights

Five little lights

A little while ago now NEXT approached me and asked if I would like a gift voucher to spend in their stores. Tom and I happen to live quite close to one of their larger stores so this worked quite well for us.  Pre baby when I had an office job I used to shop in NEXT for work clothes and am a fan of the tailoring on lots of their dresses. I kept hold of the voucher until something jumped out at me. I initially thought of buying yet more clothes but decided that would be a waste as in all honestly I don't really 'need' anymore clothes (did I just say that?!). A few weeks later my Birthday came round and I found out that Tom's mum had also got me a NEXT voucher. Combining the two I was able to buy one of their larger items so I went for this beautiful lamp. 
Tom and I have wanted to make a lamp like this for our living room for quite some time. When we saw this one in NEXT we actually realised that creating our own one would end up extremely time consuming and probably a lot more expensive. We loved that this one actually looked like we 'could' have made it ourselves but saved us the actual bother. It was really easy to assemble and the staff advised me at the checkout which bulbs I would need. The colours also happily go with the colour scheme of our living room (lots of colour!). You can see NEXT's lighting range here
NEXT sent me a voucher to use in their store for this post but all words and thoughts are my own

It really is beautiful...

I'm looking for a new lamp too (to go over our table in the dining room).

That lamp is stunning! I love the eclectic feel and the colors are great. I admit that I don't really have exciting lighting in my apartment, though I can't wait to move & get some statement makers :)

Lil - oh wow that one is stunning, pricey though! x

Jess - yes we have a really large dining room/living room so wanted something to make one end more cosy :)

-Jen this is our problem! We keep buying lights and have now used up all the places to keep them!
