It's All in the Shade

The right shade can make or break a lamp.  Look at these lamps from my mom's house that she recently updated simply by buying a new lamp shade.
The new embroidered lampshade looks so much more elegant.
Changing out the lamp shade on a lamp is a quick and easy way to give your room a facelift.
Don't forget floor lamps - they're just as easy to update.

All of the lamp shades (except for the embroidered one) are from Home Goods and were very reasonably priced.  The embroidered lampshade is from a local lighting store. 

If you're looking for a way to update your room for Spring, consider just updating your lamps.  You'll love the change.
Don't forget the Swing into Spring party is still going on.  You can click here to join in the fun.  Have a great weekend.

Shades definitely update the look of a lamp and your mom's look great! My favorite in the second one. Have a great weekend, Martina
