Rainbow shades on a chandelier

Standard

My husband (a good guy, let me state for the record) finally got to the point on his honey-do list that he put up our new dining room light fixture and I got to see my new painted shades in action.

I couldn’t get just the right representative photo of them so I snapped them from all angles.

The matte black of the fixture matches my painted hutch.

When I read in magazines about the “soothing” effect of neutral colors I always get confused. Neutral colors make me itch! I love color, and I love my new rainbow shades too.

Here is the view from the kitchen, a big change from where we started. It is fun to watch our house become more and more ours as we continue to live in it and make little tweaks to make us happy.

  1. I LOVE color too…it just makes me happy! Think that’s why I love how you decorate…whimsical and fun. the lampshades are darling, but what draws me into your photos are the color glimpses you see from the other rooms peeking through.

    I live in a part of the country that consists of green and gray most of the year so when the sun comes out and the colors finally pop, I just can’t seem to get enough of it 🙂
