I’ve been saying this for years…
“I think EVERY room needs a bit of black”.
Well….last week as I was taking a look at the great room, I really felt it was missing a little something. I wasn’t sure what. AND, whatever it was, it had to be a budget-friendly update.
Here’s what it looked like before.
How about a lampshade update?
That would be budget friendly and maybe give me the lift I was looking for.
First, I changed out the shades on the two simple, but nice, table lamps. I ADORE drum shades. It’s funny, because I think they were once associated with modern or contemporary decorating. Now, I love them in just about any interior. They are cottage. They are French Country. They are eclectic and give a fresh look to most any lamp.
Don’t you think?
Best part? Only $15.00 each at Wal-Mart.
Better, but not exactly what I was after.
What to do?
Go material shopping, of course. After looking and looking, I decided on this fabulous black and white textural fabric. It’s kinda “modern” and very “fresh”.
Then I added some black and clear bid trim to the bottom of the shades.
Went “shopping” in my own house for some more black and white accents.
Small changes. Big impact.
Now on to the next little “upgrade” for Spring.
Here’s to the little things that make us happy.
So glad you came by today.
