Use Painted Lamp Shades To Enhance A Rustic Style Home

Jun 21, 2008
Painted lamp shades are a must for rustic style decorating, or for use in any cabin, lodge, or ranch style home. The appealing style they add to your home will have your friends talking about your incredible designer style long after they leave.

In fact, I love these wonderful shades so much that I enjoy giving them as gifts for birthdays or special occasions. These lamp shades are an interesting way to enhance great southwest or Native American style in your home decor and create a look that is truly amazing.

From interesting portrayals of American Indians and beautiful mountain terrain, to detailed paintings of dry desert scenery and Indian homes, you will definitely be amazed with how these hand crafted lamp shades enhance your home's western design and style. What I enjoy most about decorating with painted lamp shades or giving them as gifts, are the many different colors and options obtainable.

You can choose from magnificent artwork on dyed pigskin leather lamp shades that come in many colors including red, green, black, gold, wine, brown or natural, or find a painting you like on a natural rawhide shade in a light or dark color.

No matter which you choose, you will certainly find one that matches your color palette and your decorating style. The incredible work of the hand-stitched leather on the leather lamp shade brings great character and genuine Native American design to your rustic cabin or ranch style home.

Don't have a ranch style home to decorate? The nicest thing about painted lamp shades is that they look equally as well in all rooms of your home and wherever else you would like to add Native American design. The great thing about painted lamp shades is that they are a very easy way to change your home lighting or makeover a home without having to have the expenses of remodeling.

Use painted lamp shades on unique western style home lighting fixtures such as wrought iron or antler lamps to bring out a genuine natural mountain look, or simply switch the shade on the standard style lamps that you already own to enhance Native design.

Frequently used on chandelier lamps for lighting large rooms or for table lamps and desk lamps, painted lamp shades are excellent for using anywhere you want to incorporate a bit of color with western flare. You will be excited to see how effortlessly a lamp shade can change the design of the entire room and create authentic western style in your home.

Use painted leather lamp shades with other country or Native American style accessories for authentic western design. Painted lamp shades look incredible when combined with Native American blankets and throws, kiva ladders, Native drums, or hand-made baskets and pottery.

These one of a kind shades are difficult to buy in retail stores where western decor accessories are sold, but you can find them online. If you enjoy the designer style homes typically found in the southwest, or are simply looking for a way to bring great rustic style to your interior decorating, try using the unique artwork of painted lamp shades.
