Black Shades

Lonny


I love black lampshades. I grew up with them in my parents home paired with red porcelain bases. I think they add a chic, defined presence to any room. They are classic, yet they can leave a vintage lamp feeling a bit more modern. Have fun looking at some of my favorite rooms where black shades are used. Which room is your favorite?

I added a black lamp shade to a room in my house, but I am going to make you wait until Monday to share pictures.  Hint: There is a heap of clean laundry I need to fold before I can take the picture.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. We are definitely on the same wavelength with the black shades Heather. So many great images here - it would be hard to choose a favorite.

    Happy weekend!

  3. Mmm. Hmmm. I can't wait to see what you've done in the laundry room. (I think?)

    The first and last pictures are so, so good.

  6. Just reread what I wrote after sending this link to my friend Leah for her dining room. (I want her to put black shade on her floor lamp.)

    But what I REALLY want to say is that I didn't mean to sound like I am hesitating to see the reveal. I DO want to see it! I was just wondering if the reveal is in your laundry room vs somewhere else. My bad.
