Shade Change

Want to know a quick and easy way to change up a room for fall? Change out your lamp shades. Trust me, I recommend it to clients all the time. Your friends will walk in and instantly wonder what you have done differently. Especially if you are changing from a solid shade to a graphic print one. Take a look at this fun Bamboo Trellis Drum Shade from Shades of Light The details: 16", available in chocolate, kelly green and yellow and only $79. My Favorite detail? It is a linen fabric shade, love that! I have had enough of the "paper shade". So what do you think? Would you try this in your home?

I only wish it came in a black or charcoal version! Unfortunately none of those go with my decor!

Fantastic point! You know, I never really thought about WHY changing a lampshade would make such a difference; It is really not as much about the shade style. Shades filter light as a primary function, and the amount of light that the shade blocks or allows &/what patterns or shapes are emitted (read: shade design) have a way of changing the overall atmosphere of the space.

Ok, now I'm really thinking about this. . .
