As you know, I have been updating my basement family room a little at a time.
I found these lamps at Target. The lamp base is from Nate Berkus' new line for Target.
I love the tree branch design and I thought they picked up the bronze in the wallpaper perfectly.
Before I found the lamp bases, I had found these flocked lampshades, also from Target.
The lampshades brought out the gold in the drapes...
which I also picked up with the pillow on the chair.
So I'm sure you're wondering what the problem is...
The only lampshade that actually fits the Nate Berkus lamp base is the Nate Berkus lamp shade, only sold in the beige you see on the left. It's a perfectly fine lampshade, but it just isn't what I want. None of the other lampshades that Target sells fits the Nate Berkus lamp base.
It looks like this when it's on correctly. Then the lightbulb gets screwed into the top. It's actually a great design, making the lampshade completely secure .
So Nate...I love you and your gorgeous lamp base, but why did you have to make it only fit your lampshade?? I'm open to any suggestions (except returning the gold flocked shades...I have already considered that and I don't like that option LOL).
Don't forget to stop back tonight for my Fall into Fall party.

Hope to see you then.
