  • Are there certain colors that work better in different designs?

    Do you have to keep the design in mind as well when you are considering the colors for a lampshade?

    Hi Harold. I use Japanese, Italian and Indian decorative papers for my shades. They come in 1000's of colour combinations. Often a client will ask for particular colours to match their interiors and I will source papers that they can choose from. All the papers I choose have small scale patterns, so they can be seen well on a shade. I think my range of shades reflects my own personal taste and colour choice. I tend to choose natural shades of green, blues, browns and reds.
