I love lighting and love the mood that it sets in an evening, especially if the light fitting is adorned with a stunning light shade. The light created can be decided by the colour shade that you decide to choose – red and yellow tones will give off a warm light, where as blue and green hues project a cooler light. If you want to create an impact with your lighting, grouping several shades together will give your room an eclectic focal point.
Lighting is an inexpensive way of bringing your room to life. I love the dull glow of a table lamp or a large drummed pendent light controlled by a dimmer switch. I am a huge fan of a lovely lampshade and they can be as simple or outrageous as you desire! I have always been interested in taking a course on how to do it so that I could adorn my home with vintage florals and textured beauties…
I like all things in my home to not only be a statement, but a little over the top at times too. I find that lighting is the perfect way to inject a unique stamp into a room without a lot of financial or permanent commitment to the cause…after all, if you get bored of a certain vintage lampshade you could always just take it down and put another one in its place.
I am completely in love with these three lighting ideas and think that the fabric lampshade would be perfect over an oval dining table!
