Design-it-Yourself Lamp


My husband and I recently moved into a new rental apartment with the requisite cream-colored walls. Because we’re too lazy to paint the rooms, just to have to repaint them back to cream when we move out, we tried our best to surround ourselves with colorful, interesting objects.

I discovered a great feature on the Lamps Plus website: You can customize your perfect lamp, by picking a base then decorating the shade to add a burst of color and pattern to your room. I chose an ivory drum shade to complement the black curvy lamp base. Then I experimented with their extensive pattern options and unlimited color palettes. So many choices – what to do?!?!  As an art director, I chose my own palette using RGB colors for the perfect navy and gray. 

The process was fun—the site was super-easy to navigate and when my lamp arrived, it was exactly what I wanted!
