Ugly Betty...So Pretty

I am officially obsessed with Ugly Betty.....the tv show.

I know I missed the boat with watching it when it was on but I have now seen almost all 84 episodes in a matter of 2 weeks.  I have to get to the end.  My laundry is really piling up!

The set is gorgeous!  Take a peek:

The light blue with the orange and white is just incredible.  Not to mention the beautiful orange chairs.  I know there is a designer out there who knows the name of those chairs.  They are delicious as is the entire room!

This is my favorite set.  It's Wilhelmina's Slater's office.

Oh my!  I could just stare at this all day long.  I love the black chandelier and the commanding off-white office chair behind the glass desk with the white chairs in front of the desk.  And don't get me started on that lounge chair.  And that pop of orange with the phone!  If I sat down on that lounge, I would never want to get up!  Such a clean, modern, yet warm space.  Bravo!

I am especially enamored by a lamp in Willie's office.  You can see it in this shot:

The lamp is on the right.  It has a blue shade and a genie type white glossy base.  When I saw it I knew I had to try to find something similar for my bedroom.

A couple of days ago, something miraculous happened.  I was reading copy cat chic and a similar table lamp was posted for sale via Joss and Main.  I flew over to Joss and Main to pick up my table lamp, but alas, they were sold out.  BUT.....they still had this floor lamp available:

I know it's not an exact replica of Wilhelmina's blue shaded floor lamp, but it's pretty darn close.  The whole idea is to capture the look.  So I now have this lamp.  Again, this is the set lamp:

My lamp is still sitting in its box, but I plan on setting it up and showing it soon.  

By the way, that Vanessa Williams (she plays Whilhelmina Slater on Ugly Betty) is as gorgeous as her office!

Off to finish the series!  It is Sunday, after all.
