I’m not sure when my latest obsession started (I have MANY); I guess after recently discovering Pinterest and drooling over spaces like these:

There is something almost mesmerizing to me about over sized lamp shades. They give weight to a room and help visually fill up space, especially in large rooms.
I have rather tall ceilings in my new home and I knew I wanted to go bold with some HUGE lamp shades.
I came across these and currently have them in our dining room and my daughter’s room:
These shades are HUGE (14″x14″x18″H) and are very well made.
For our dining room, I wrapped the shades in a black cotton fabric and added a chevron trim (confusingly it’s actually called tape, but it’s not sticky…???) around the bottom. The lamp bases I purchased from eBay for $30. Here is how they turned out:
I kept the next pair of shades white for my daughter’s room, but did add two different sizes of black grosgrain ribbon for a modern look:
This next lamp is in our master bedroom and sits on my husband’s dresser:
This lamp shade I had custom made about 4 years ago and the lamp base I bought from Home Goods for $15. This shade is very tall (24″x10″w) and it really adds some “presence” to our large master bedroom.
What is your obsession? Share….I’m looking for a new one!
