Try Painted Lamp Shades For Southwestern Home Decorating

Apr 7, 2008
Painted lamp shades bring out the best in Native American home decor and are definitely the way to go in rustic lighting. The designer style they enhance in your home will have your friends talking about your beautiful designer look long after they leave. In fact, I like these southwestern shades so much that I often give them as gifts to friends and family. These lamp shades are a unique way to enhance interesting southwest or Native style in your interior design and create a look that is definitely amazing.

From elaborate portrayals of Native Indians and beautiful mountain terrain, to detailed paintings of dry desert landscape and Indian dwellings, you will definitely be pleased with how these hand made lamp shades enhance your home's Native American design and style. The thing I like most about decorating with leather lamp shades or giving them as gifts, are the variations in colors and options to choose from.

You can decide between beautiful paintings on dyed pigskin suede lamp shades that come in red, green, black, gold, wine, brown or natural, or find a painting you like on a rustic rawhide shade in a light or dark tone. No matter which you choose, you will definitely find one to match your color palette and your decorating needs. The beautiful handiwork of the hand-stitched lacing on the leather lamp shade adds beautiful charm and authentic Native design to your rustic cabin or country home.

Trying to simply create rustic style in a room in your home? The greatest thing about painted lamp shades is that they look just as wonderful in an office, den, bedroom, living room and wherever else you want to incorporate southwestern design. The best thing about painted lamp shades is that they are a relatively easy way to change your home lighting or makeover a home without having to spend a fortune or make a lot of changes. Use painted lamp shades on unique rustic style home lighting fixtures such as wrought iron or antler lamps to enhance a true rugged mountain look, or simply change the shade on the regular style lamps that you are already using to create western design.

Often used on floor lamps for illuminating large rooms or for table lamps and desk lamps, painted lamp shades are great for using anywhere you wish to create a splash of color with rustic flare. You will be fascinate to see how easily a lamp shade can adjust the design of the entire room and bring rustic style decorating to life in your home. Use painted leather lamp shades with other country or rustic style items for authentic rustic design. Painted lamp shades look great when used with Native American blankets and throws, pueblo ladders, Native drums, or Indian baskets and pottery.

These incredible shades are hard to buy in traditional stores where southwestern decor accessories are sold, but you can find them online. If you enjoy the pueblo style houses typical throughout the southwest, or are simply looking for a way to bring color and rustic flare to your interior decorating, try incorporating the unique art of painted lamp shades.
