I’ve been looking forward to writing this post because this Instagram I took inside the Los Angeles Lamps Plus showroom was one of the most popular Instagrams I took during Blog Tour L.A.! Not only did I find the wonderfully exotic colours of L.A. inspiring as I wondered around the city, but also in the designs I saw during the trip.
Naturally my colour-loving eye was drawn to the new Colour Plus collection by Lamps Plus. I think it was a spot on idea to match the colours of the lamps – there are over 100 colour options in the range – to well known brands such as Pantone and Sherwin Williams. This makes it easier to get colour choices right when choosing a bright piece for a new or existing scheme because you will know the exact colour the lamp will be. Pretty cool, right? I made a fun little gif to show how you can mix and match the shape and size of the lamp base in various colours with a range of plain and graphic patterned shades. (Gifs are so fun – any excuse!) Plus, I was keen to share these three images as they really show the power of decorating with lighting in an interior design scheme. They show how switching up the colour of a table lamp and letting that be the reference point for the accent colours across the rest of the space can totally switch up the feel of the room. I really like how the purple table lamp sits alongside the cheerful yellow accents – what a winning colour combo! Do you have any colourful lamps in your home? How do you like to decorate with lighting?
