throwing shade...

...the look I gave my computer screen, after Googling "beautiful, pleated, fabric, lampshade", and getting the images below...

no joke

To quote Stephen Colbert, "Nation, you've got a big problem."

Why is it that we have to cross the Atlantic to find a decent lampshade?

pooky :


Try to imagine the next two rooms with plain white or black shades. Would they still be lovely? Yes, they would. However, the chosen shades bring depth and polish to the space. It's a small touch that makes a big statement. 

So give it a go.....or risk some shade...



  1. they have better lampshades and better wallpaper than we do. i was at ben pentreath's shop in december and could have bought several of the lampshades, but carrying them home would have been problematic.

  2. LOVE the saucy shade (sideways) glances, and then the sly shades aplenty found above. Awesome post. Been way too long, my friend. Hope east coast life after Jonas has you well (and safe and warm!).

  3. I have lamented the sad state of lampshade options in the States or when available outlandish expensive many times. Love your post.

  4. Great post.thank you so much.Love this blog.


I love comments! Thank you for taking the time to do so. Unfortunately, I have been getting bulk spam, so I have enabled word verification (temporarily I hope) to try and put a stop to it. Thank you for understanding! k
