No one loves a red lampshade more than me. I think a shot of red does wonders for a room, and the glossy shade below is one of the most popular things I've ever posted on this blog. But Atlanta is as green as a rain forest at the moment. Inspired by the verdant leaves outside my window, I revisited the bottle-green shades used by Miles Redd in a super-chic dining room for a young family.
With Miles using them, could the stately green shades be embraced by a new generation? As you've probably heard a million times before, a new lampshade is far more attainable than new curtains.
Below is a classic green lampshade in Lynn von Kersting's splendidly layered living room.
Maybe a favorite brick and mortar shop in your neighborhood sells them.
