5 Coastal Lamps to Light Up Your World!


Coastal Lamps are an easy way to light up your world!  I was thinking about  how great an investment lighting for your beach home really is.  Yes, some higher-end coastal table lamps can be pricey upfront, however when you think about how many years of durable use they provide, they really aren’t that expensive.  If the table lamp is beautiful then it’s almost like an investment in art too, especially those which are handcrafted with shells and such.

Think of it this way….If you pay $200 for a lamp and have it for 10 years then it’s only costing you $20 a year or $1.66 a month! You spend more than $1.66 a month on Starbucks or other items which don’t provide value, don’t you? Hmmmm….do I have you thinking now?

Here are five Coastal Lamps which will light up your world and are all a great investment for your home!  Don’t forget to leave a comment as to which is your favorite.

White Capiz Shell Chandelier

Crazy for Capiz Shell Lamps

Contemporary Dining Room by Minneapolis General Contractor REFINED LLC

A capiz shell lamp provides a favorite spot in your beach house with a soft, diffused light — perfect for the bedroom, den or library.  They used to cost thousands of dollars, but are now widely available at affordable prices.  Since capiz shells reflect light, some light fixtures don’t even have a light inside; they hang like chandeliers and get their glow from other light sources.  Here are some of our favorite designs, which one is your favorite?

Every place from the living room end tables to your reading corner to the bedroom nightstand on the way to your nursery could be some sort of possible position meant for an accent lamp. Coastal accent lighting fixtures are a terrific way to provide simply a little brightness along with a little character to a bedroom. A bare area on your shelf can just come to life by way of nicely positioned light.

Decorating using an accent lamp gives the look as well as feel of a professionally decorated home.

Nautical Home Lighting Brightens Up Autumn

Thinking about home lighting doesn’t usually occur to me until this time each and every year.  Maybe it’s the fact the table lamps and pendant fixtures are shining brightly more hours of each day.  I’ve noticed that my eyes are straining to see more often lately so it’s time to move those table lamps around to get the most out of them.

Autumn is the perfect time of year to work on interior home projects like adding nautically-inspired wallpaper to a room.   If you’ve finished your painting and wallpaper then why not add some new light fixtures?  Lighting can create instant ambiance within a space; both by the light it emits and the beauty of the piece itself.

Many people probably feel that I have spent too many hours choosing the lights for our beach cottage.  It is not for lack of decision-making, but the fact that a light can be a real focal point and needs to be functional for the space it is used in.  Over the past decade, I’ve done 90% of my light fixtures shopping from e-Bay and found some fabulous deals.   I have no problem in spending a bit more money for a light fixture since it is a practical and functional investment; however getting a good deal is still important.   Table lamps…well, that’s another story.

I tend to find table lamps at garage sales, antique stores and the such.  Since I steer away from matchy-matchy decor, it is fun to find one lamp here and one lamp there.  If I pay a garage sale price then I can more freely experiment with painting the lamp, gluing on shells and ribbon to the lamp shades…you know what I mean, right!?

If you find a nautical light style that you like, then save to Pinterest, save a photo to your iPad or print out the photo for inspiration while searching for one which fits your budget.  I forgot one important thing – have fun and enjoy the days of Autumn!
