Hot or Not?

Speaking of lamps, I bought some today. My dilemma is that I’m not sure they are right for my room. But at the same time they were such a good deal I can’t pass them up. Here is the story of my new Pier 1 Blue Medallion lamps…..
I went to Pier 1 because I had a gift card. I wandered around the store but wasn’t finding much. Then a giant blue lamp caught my eye. Of course it was 80 feet high up and I couldn’t see the price. An employee with a ladder was summoned and after climbing up she informed me they were $85. Gulp…..too much. But I hadn’t been able to find anything I liked and in reality $85 with a shade for a lamp that big isn’t bad. I told her I’d take it. As she was getting it down we spotted a clearance sticker. $21!!! On sale. Wow. What a deal. So of course it seems meant to be.
Here is the dilemma. They are the wrong blue. My navy is very dark and these are very bright.
Here is the lamp in the room. (yes I realize the shade is crooked). As you can see next to my pillows it is a much brighter blue. What to do. How can I pass up a lamp that is the perfect height and the perfect price but the wrong color? This is such a predicament and I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep or eat till it is figured out.

    i see what you're saying. one trick i might try is taking out the lightbulb and find one that has more white undertones rather than yellow. it might add a more natural light which could tone down the base of the lamp. also i think it looks just fine by the way. BUT maybe put the floral print next to the lamp vs the navies. keep it. you cant pass up 21 dollars for that fab of a lamp.

    I say keep it, leave it there, and see if it grows on you. It's a beautiful lamp, and it's still a great buy, even if you decide it's not right for your initial purpose. I love it!
