Let there be light

We like to mix old and new, especially modern lamps with older traditional furniture. We found this understated no frills Italian ceiling lamp after a long search. It looks like it was made for our living room and it gives beautiful, almost ambient, light. Perfect.


Now we still need to find a new dining room ceiling lamp, which is proving to be quite difficult...

By the way, does anyone know the name of this flower? I have no clue but it looks and smells gorgeous.

Onpas taas kauniita kuvia ja tunnelmia:))Enpä muuten minä ainakaan tiedä tuon kukan nimeä,en muista koskaan edes nähneeni tuollaista...
Ja tuo valaisin on tosiaan hyvän näköinen ja Tolomeo myöskin!
Eikä ole enää pitkä aika lomaan:))))))
Täällä on tänään satanut vähän väliä,kovastikin,ja jonkun mielestä voi olla kylmä, mutta minusta on oikein sopiva sää.

Nice lamp! I know the flower but not the name. I can look it up for you, just let me know if you still want to know and no one has told you in the mean time.
Greetings, M

Hola!

Creo que tus flores son Matthiola incana o alhelí! Muy bonitas!

Saludos, Ana!

@ Marja & Ana: Thank you! You both were correct! I googled the names and hey presto, there it was, with Violieren being the Dutch name :-) You ladies know your stuff with plants :-)

Wauw, great lamp!
By the way, is that the Tolomeo by Artemide? LOOOOOOOVE that one! I'm hoping one day I'll win the lotery...

Vilka underbara bilder från ditt hem och din trädgård igen!
Ha en fortsatt revlig sommar!

@ Anja: Yes, it is Tolomeo :-) My boyfriend "inherited" this floor model from his uncle.

I was admiring the lamp too.A very stylish design that you will never get bored of. Violieren and red roses where the first flowers my husband ever gave me. So I have nice memory's of them. They smell gourgous!
