…lampshades! (Wow, that was ‘clever’ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Recently, I went bonkers for yellow, so that’s what I’m looking for when it comes to shades and other decorative features.

This one, on the other hand, is perfect! Not too old school but still has 70′ feel to it.
Love the cheerful, citrus tone!

And there’s the standing lamp issue. We need one standing lamp. Preferably close to sofa (stay tuned for sofa update!).

My original plan was:

hemma lamp base

….plus funky, yellow, small, no-pattern lampshade.

  1. Yellow adds cheer to the home. I like the first two shades in the top photo. Both you and your husband’s photoshop skills are adorable! I would go for three light fixtures of the same design for the ceiling (I’m not so adventurous!) but might opt for different shade colours. The floor lamp is cute!
