It's a blue/green color with fabric flower cutouts (apparently, no record of this lampshade exists on the internet). My husband's side of the bed has (until recently) been outfitted with an ugly purple ikea lamp that had no business being in our bedroom to begin with. Now that we're redecorating, we want a new lampshade for that side of the bed. I'd love it to match the whimsical nature of mine, but probably shouldn't be quite as girly. The colors in our bed room are in the cool palette... mostly white and blue and green and the base of the lamp has a brushed metal finish. I'm hoping you could help us find the perfect partner for my discontinued Anthropologie lampshade. Our price range is somewhere in the $30-$60 range, but that's flexible. Hope you can help! Thanks, Ty"
Hi, Ty, Janetor here! I know all about the travails of decorating with your husband... Mine is insanely picky and doesn't like most of the girly stuff I love. But, here are seven different lamps/lamp shades that hopefully will suit. Let me know if you -and he! - like any!
1 - Blue and Green Circlets Giclee Shade ($75)
2 - Biloxi Blues Paisley Shade ($60)
3 - Lights Up! Camilla Meijer Green Anna Shade ($100)
4 - Oopsy Daisy Fine Art for Kids LW-VINES-WHITE Vines on Blue Children's Bedroom Lamp ($138 - yes, expensive, yes kid's lamp, but AWEsome shade!)
