Fab Freebie: Cool Shades

Ready for more free stuff? Do I even need to ask?

This week’s giveaway comes from Shades of Light, a local specialty lighting and decor store whose wide selection of products have been featured everywhere from Cottage Living to Coastal Living and even on decor8. And if you live here in Richmond, you’ve probably driven by their location on Broad St. across from Willow Lawn. We actually bumped into them most recently at a local blogging event, where we learned that they’ve started an Inspired Spaces blog which features expert insights on lighting your home, as well as great before & after pictures of their design projects.


Shades of Light offers a wide selection of styles (vintage, classic, contemporary, etc) across a wide variety of items (lamps, chandeliers, pendants, rugs, mirrors and even furniture) which you can browse in their store, online and by catalog. But this week we’re giving away their exclusive natural-meets-elegant bamboo table lamp to one lucky winner, who will get to choose between the silver one and the black one pictured below.


To enter the contest just comment on this post with the words “LIGHT ME UP” by Wednesday, February 25th at 8pm EST. While you’re at it tell us what else makes you light up with excitement (chocolate? weekends? chihuahuas?). This prize is available to residents of the lower 48 United States and, as usual, there’s only one entry per e-mail address allowed. One winner will be selected using random.org and announced later in the week. Good luck…

    I love before and afters, painting (art and walls) and sharing wine with my sweetie. I also light up whenever I see a new ‘Young House Love’ post!

  2. Heather says


    Yay I’m first! I doubt that means I have more of a chance to win though. Things that get me excited: chocolate, vacations, and roller coasters!

  3. Amber says


    Besides fabulous lighting, other things that light up my life are my pets, dark chocolate, shopping, and running with my dog!

    What a great lamp! I wish I lived in the Richmond area and could check out the entire store. Guess I’ll have to check them out online.

    As for the LIGHT ME UP challenge – my little girl lights me up. She’s 9 months old and for the past month or so has been super-excited to see me when I get home from work. Talk about the perfect way to get away from the stress of the office!

    Oops, I forgot to say what lights me up, I was so excited about the lamps. What lights me up is hanging at home with my boyfriend and the kitties.
