I would love to have a lap top computer be comfortable
 on the couch or where ever! Do the batteries get very
hot so you actually cannot use them on your lap! I have
 been thinking of buying one to take with me places and
it would be a good way to have a back up in case mine
goes down!

Did not sleep well...I have patches under my eyes like a raccoon...I read so much I can't see so good...hehe  I think you should think of two things Karen concerning color here...

I need some answers first...what is your motiff...kind of 70s mod?  or is there any and you want the lamp to be your focal point?  I wish I had pics?  I go out to the sites and see first...You should see the designers and I go at it...they think my thoughts are wretched and I know theirs is!  Ewwww, I could tell you stories...I have to reshape, redesign, etc...ick...I make them pick up items too...they had TWO bookshelves in my office, uh, duh, I still want the copier in my office as I am about productivity...hehe  They clutter and I have to pull "stuff" off and space on the shelves..or whatever...I just found out they took my tapestry back from the fireplace and hung a mirror it was my bosses suggestion...I told my boss that went out in the 70's and it is suggested to have a pic...they brought a picture and put it in the oddest place...I have not said anything as it is pretty darn funny...it amuses me when i walk in the door(my boss suggest picture go there...)I will take a picture of it soon and show you...hilarious!  I have some pics maybe they turned out good and I will post them...

If you want to bring out the lamp, think of the location in your room...where is your biggest focal point, will your lamp fit in that area, if not...then paint the wall a yellow, bright and vivid like the colors of lamp, not the same of one of the colors unless you have much of that color in the room..I really need to see..aagghh!  LOL I can point out other things, but need to know your motiff, room, and many other variables...I need my graph to design where your furniture is and where it is needing to be placed to make it look right....sorry I am made up weird like that...from what I know at the moment...the lamp is not the main focal point of room...yellow is not a bad color..not pale and not gold hues...think sunshine!;)

Oh crudola! I forgot an important factor...what color is your furniture?  Is it all the same color or what...get descriptive as that is the only visualization I can do from here...

The room is approximately 12x12, I am tearing out a closet as it was a bedroom at one point. So that should add three feet to the length! 12x15.. I have two of these lovely lams and want to purchase two comfotable chairs and ottomans .. I also am purchasing one of those wall fireplace for the end wall. the end of the room where the closet is is where I want my desk to reside about 7 ft long long! It will be on the right end of the room. the wall fireplace at opposite end of room. I have found a wood finish whimsical Twisted book shelf at peir one, its about 6 feet tall and about three ft wide! I have one small refriderator I keep cool drinks in I want under my desk! I am not sure yet about chairs.. I think I might go with small love seat insted of the chairs and ottomens.. I want it facing the fire..for reading a good book or listening to my music!Not much furniture really I was thinking a lamp on each side of the mantle, but am open to moving them more towrds the sofa ends.. have not found small table with storage for in front of the sofa, but I do have this old trunk my Great Great Grandfather built that I might just make a couple cushions for the top so it can double as an ottomen or a coffe table by removing cushion.I really don't want to loose it , I want it in its natural state...I have two very old larg console record player stero units one six ft long and one 4 ft. I am getting rid of the 4 ft one and am not sure about the other, but will move it out of here into another room.. Theres a start!!

The motiff sounds interesting.  Love seat sounds like it would be comfy and cozy in front of Fireplace.  Refrigerator under the desk?  hmmm, is it hidden?  Or would I see it? Lamps on the mantle?  What are you putting above the mantle?  Karen, I wish you were here, I found an interesting coffee table that was a clock face with glass over it, you pull it up and voila!  You have storage...but it was a whopping 800.00 too, but unique.Okay, the trunk your Great, Great, Grandfather built, could you put it up against a wall maybe under a window in that room, throw some greenery over it or plants...prefer greenery.  Or put it up against the wall and put some cushions up there...it would work like a daybed or double as extra seating too...I wish I could see your room...LOL  Yep, get rid of those units especially if you are not using them.  They would become an easy catch all.

Not sure if any of this helps, but just let me know as I am going on with my minds eye.

I have not picked a love sea or chairs yet! trunk can go by window...there is only one window, 3x5 or 4x5, iI haven't measured it!! big one.. draw up the room measurement 12x15. on the long wall in front of you at the lftend there is a door approx. 5 ft from corner on that wall.single door unit.Opposite wall close to you long wall is a big window, so you look from door across room to window>> thats about it, right now three feet of the room on the end of room by door are two closets which I am going to remove thr divider in and leave upper shelfs, I think...for storage, I would like to build a couple of doores to cover the openings above  and set my huge desk into> adding about three feet depth to room!

I have a table in one of my models that a community manager fought me over...when describing it with her...had a few accent walls....just a thought here too Karen, one wall sunshine yellow...(you could sing we all live in a yellow submarine and feel a bit 70ish too)I had 4 different accent colors and a chair in each of the colors around the table....with some interesting champagne flutes with the different colors as the centerpiece...looked like glass flowers...it was "groovy"

ideas for questions for forum topics.. I haven't added to for awhile. LOL "oil candle" a

"box of matches" to light candles "cds speakers and tons of wires!" LOL "Barney Fife"

collectible "Elvis wine:" which will never be opened to breath the air as I have it for

me Elvis collection! LOL Just as I have a John Wayne collection also as I am a spagetti

western fan also! LOL!

BTW I am still collecting Marbles and may still be missing a few of my own.. So if you

see them kindly roll them back home! LOL Now,

moving down on right my "TV and cable box" my "old spectacles" which aid me in viewing
