Made to Measure Lampshades

When should I use a dark coloured lampshade in a room?

Light colours are expansive and airy, making rooms seem larger and brighter. Dark colours are sophisticated and warm; they give large rooms a more intimate appearance. 

Using a darker tone for your lampshade, with lighter walls will emphasise the structure and architecture of a room.

Dark Fabrics can create a dark, moody and glamorous room, offering a sense of calm for a truly relaxed environment. Not only do they often create a cosier, more comforting atmosphere than some of their lighter counterparts, but they are also thought to have different psychological effects on our brains too. Dark coloured lampshades work very well in spacious interiors or high-ceilinged rooms to visually shrink the space and give it a cosier vibe.

A lot of richly pigmented tones have a sophisticated, almost luxurious feel to them and are a good choice for creating a welcoming an intimate interior scheme.

If you have dark fabrics consider making the walls dark too, then you will need to introduce lighter tones and colours with upholstery and paintings. Dark colours recede. When a room is papered or painted a dark colour, the colour will actually make the room look larger, rather than bringing the walls in.

Our most dramatic dark colours are Winter, Charcoal, Plum and Cornflower. Winter is a wonderful dark grey and can add drama to any room.
