I've been wanting to make some changes to my bedrooms decor and update the style of some of the accent pieces that currently decorate it. Today I decided it was a good day to start with the lampshades. Lighting is such a quintessential part of decor and I simply adore it. From chandeliers to table lamps, lighting has got to be one of my favorite decorating elements in any design.
I am planning on re-decorating my bedroom with a old Hollywood glamour swanky, and sexy feel to it. I love the mood this look creates and thought what a perfect feel for a bedroom!I pulled these beautiful black feathers from an old feather boa, and used matching shoe clips for the centerpiece of each. Fine ribbon is always a must around my home. I love the different textures and colors you can use to help create your look. I used just a dab of hot glue to secure the ribbon in place tightly around the lampshade. You can use thick ribbon or even gimp to create a different look. Old buttons, buckles, or Rhinestone pins are great to use as a centerpiece on a ribbon wrapped shade. Ta Da! The finished shade, Doesn't it look so glamorous and beautiful mixed in with my old rhinestone crowns,trophies, pearls & things! Another gorgeous example! This shade I used the same fabric to create the ribbon with and accented it with an old rhinestone jeweled brooch. Another gorgeous lampshade in the bell shape, accented by a thick black velvet ribbon and an old silver buckle. Very Hollywood Glam & Very Audrey Hepburn like!
