Gourd Lamps and Foo Dogs

via decorpad
As post titles go, I rather like this one actually!  Anyway, these are two trends I'm pretty into at the mo.  The gourds, I'm unapologetic about - they're just a really pleasing shape and work in almost any interior. The foo dogs though I feel less sure of - am I straying into the wrong side of tacky here??  They do provide a nice shot of colour though and there is something kinda cool about them right now...

Anyway, to start off, here's my pick of interiors images featuring gourd lamps:

And now, some interiors pics featuring (yes, you guessed it!) foo dogs:


Love those purple tulips by the way.




There are also foo dog lamps ...



... and then there are gourds that aren't lamps (ok, now I'm getting silly).

That first pic by the way was of Ivanka Trump's apartment.  I refuse to believe she decorated it herself.  Nobody should be that fortunate, good looking AND talented!  Also, do check out the it girl project blog where I came across those first two gourd lamp images from elements of style.  I think it's pretty cool.

Love love the gourd lamps, they def are a fave style of mine! Not really into foo dogs I have to admit, they kinda freak me out a little! xx

I have the orange CB2 foo dogs! So reasonably priced!

And I have the black version of that white gourd lamp! It's from Target, another bargain!

Basic pieces that you can use for a long time.
