Opinions: Mantle Lamps/Art

Ok, I found a solution for the remote control lamps. Turns out the transmitter is designed to be plugged into a socket, but it has holes for the actual plug. It looks like a socket protector for kids, but not actually protecting anything. Plug the lamp into the transmitter, which is plugged into the wall.

Since we have two working sockets next to the mantle, it only makes sense to have lamps on it, and I think I'd like a matching set. As of right now, we only have one table lamp, a vintage chrome ball lamp that's about 32" high. I found a match on eBay, so we could use those. As for the art over the mantle, it's coming down to two options: 1.) an enlargement of one of my fashion prints, and b.) the vintage silver mirror I found at Urban Ore. I know I don't want silver with silver, so I don't want the mirror with the ball lamps. Either We hang the mirror and get new lamps, or we use the lamp(s) we have and go with the photo.

What do you think?

  1. if the mirror isn't real silver, you can spray paint it something else. White, black, antique it, whatever.
