It seems as if we have lights on the brain this week. We have a navy blue lamp that has been a part of our household for many years. I bought it on a trip to Florida and actually carried it home on an airplane. The shade it has been wearing recently was looking a little sad and not worthy of spring. Meanwhile, I have also decided to add some more color to our home through accessories. So, when a friend and I went to a Ballard Designs outlet recently, I took a look at their lampshades which just happened to be reduced an additional 30 per cent.
Ballard Designs had some great shades in all shapes and colors. I found a green one that will add a pop of color and some great contrast to the navy lamp. Better yet, it pulls out the greens in one of my favorite oil paintings which just happens to be on the wall above it.
I love the way the lamp now goes so well with the painting I bought from Afremov Art Studio. You can get a whole new look on a lamp just by changing the shade. I have some ideas for a few more lamps around here and will be sure to share them as soon as the magic happens.
