I love the blue, too. As far as the console, I would leave it black since you have the tv which is also black. Did you say what your bed linens are? I think you may be able to find something that ties it all together. I wouldn't get too large a lamp since you have only 14" of depth. Maybe a smallish lamp sitting on a stack of books if necessary to raise it to a good height for reading.

Cyn, thanks for the response. Never even thought about the tv being black also. And it's on the other side of the room.

This is the new bedding.

Pretty. I am responding here so others may see the blue color and the cream/white furniture.

To go back to the lamp and respond here to your question on the other thread-if you have a 25"inch lamp, go ahead and try it. I find I really need to see something in place before I can really decide. If the lamp and its shade aren't too wide, it could definitely work on your console. A smaller lamp could work as well and if you feel it is too short, just sit it on several books.

Thanks again Cyn for your help. Guess I should have put all the pics on one thread, as recommended by someone else.

I didn't buy the taller lamp yet, I was just trying to get some opinions on what size to get.

I do have one small cut glass lamp, approx. 10" high max. Needs a shade. I think I'll get the console first, get it in place and make sure I like it, then start on the lamp issue, haha. Good Lord, what a process this bedroom is for such a small room. It's definitely not like a lot of rooms I see on here, which is why I was hesitant to post mine.

I saw the boxes below and also liked them for the shelf.
