Lampshade Refresh

By Sarah E.J. Williams
Favorite Lampshades to Refresh a Room

As one season changes to the next, I find myself naturally wanting to edit different aspects of my life, including my home, in order to welcome in the newness of the approaching season and all the good things yet to come. This transition time is a perfect opportunity to give your home a refresh - and I can’t think of a better way to get inspired than by changing things up a bit! 

Autumn is just around the corner which is the official start of what I like to call “lamp season.” Don’t get me wrong - I love lamps all year round but there’s something about the warm glow of a lamp when the days are getting shorter, the air outside is beginning to cool and the leaves are slowly transitioning from one glorious color to another. It’s as if Mother Nature is giving us permission to slow down and get cozy. 

One of the easiest but most often overlooked ways to refresh a space is by adding a lamp or simply changing out the shade. Lamps play a big role in adding ambience to a space by contributing to the mood and personality of the room, as well as the way we experience the space.   

On that note, I thought I would share some of my favorite lampshades that happen to pair nicely with the rattan table lamp bases available at Gray Gables Home and are sure to breathe new life into your home.
