Residential Color and Style from a Certified True Color Expert.

Beautiful lamps

As a color expert, sometimes what is perceived to be a paint issue turns out to be a lighting issue. When possible, I like to have  light available in each corner of a room. There is nothing like a nice lamp with the correct shade to enhance everything else about the room, and to cast a warm glow which makes moods, complexions, and everything about the room look right. My personal favorite style of lampshade is an English silk pleated shade which has a tonal stripe look when lighted.

Sometimes you can break the rules and have a fabulous space. Look here, I can’t really explain why this works, but it does. It looks like the designer did a great job with using  a lot of pinky-beige undertones in the carpet and wall-covering, which really ramp up and enhance the clean strong purples. Great floor lamp! (the smaller lamp  doesn’t work, though, it’s way too small and looks like an afterthought)

Sometimes an odd-ball lamp is just perfect for a culture-specific space
