I’ve seen a lot of clever ideas of ways to enhance a traditional paper shade — which are rife in Ireland. Personally, I don’t mind the look of these shades as I remember my very trendy friend, Mia, had them in her house when we were in middle school. Her dad was an architect and her mom was an interior designer and I always thought their house was very minimalist cool. They were also Italian so perhaps that’s where my love of Italian design comes from.
But I digress…if you’re one of these folks who’s not into the traditional paper shade look, you can have a bit of fun with it by creating your own embellishments. I think anything goes — case in point, these coffee shop inspired looks. Go forth and craft.
