All women know that you can wear the same pants over and over, as long as the top is different. It pays to invest in a great pair of jeans or trousers and have fun with the shirts and sweaters. Stretches out the wardrobe. The frugalista in me loves this concept, both for fashion and for home decor.
Trending hot right now in home design are colourful lamps. They’re fun, funky and bring some life to a room.
Not to worry though it you’ve got a home full of beautiful lamps but they all have subdued white shades. Think of a lamp and shade as separates. Change the top and it’s a whole new look.
Patterned shades add a strong look to a room and could be just the thing to dress up a tired bedroom or living room.
Just don’t throw out those white shades yet. Colour and pattern cheer us up for a while, but it’s nice to go back to a classic. Like the iconic black trouser and white blouse, a plain shade and a good base are never out of step.
