There’s nothing like shabby chic lamp shades to brighten a room. You can purchase them already trimmed or have the fun of adding vintage prints or paintings to them yourself. One home DIY decorator clipped strings of crystals to a lampshade frame, creating a shade that cast fractured sparkles of light throughout the room. No matter what theme you have going in your room, there is a lamp or lamp idea out there just waiting for you.
Lamp Shade Ideas
Print fabric lamp shades are an easy way to brighten a room and to pick up the theme set by window curtains, cushions or chintz chair, and couch covers. Want something a little more elegant? Try hand painted lampshades or embroidered cloth shades. Or use a brocade cloth with a crystal fringe for something more elegant than chintz or calico. Crystals and light go together very well and can be echoed by sun catchers that repeat the theme.
One thing to always consider with lampshades is that light bulbs give off heat. Select fabrics that have been treated with flame retardant or select heat resistant materials for your lamp decorations. For fragile materials, use a wire lampshade frame that will keep the materials distant from the lightbulb. If you have found a pretty fabric to use for a lampshade covering but are unsure of how flame resistant it might be, you can spritz it down with a spray flame retardant.
Delicate, Bold, or Elegant
From delicate rosebuds to bold splashes of color to crystals or swags of beautiful brocade, lampshades can put the final touch on pulling a room together. Your lampshade can pick up elements of the room, it can create a statement or it can bring focus to a special corner. Shabby chic lamp shades can complete your shabby chic decorative theme.
