What green fabrics do you have for making lampshades?

Green's calming effects may be due to its associations with nature, which people often feel is relaxing and refreshing. We find ourselves craving the greens of nature.  

If we can't get enough of green outside, then the fresh reassurance of any shade of green can help to provide a little serenity and calm in our homes. It is worth noting that green is not a primary colour, but a blend of blue and yellow on the visible spectrum. Yellow predominates in vibrant, fresher greens, where dark blue and sometimes even black, can be added for a richer evergreen palette

My greens from the greens with the most yellow to those with more blue and black mixed in with hem are called: Lime, Apple Green, Kale, Field Green, Water and, Smoke and the darkest of all three is Lichen.

The designs with small prints are Pretty Maids and Dainty Daisy; stripes are Stockholm Stripe, Simple Ticking and French Ticking.

Large prints for those big windows are Up The Garden path, Fern and Dragonfly.

What colours should I use to go with my green lampshade?

This depends on the tone and shade of the green but the following colours are a good starting point:

Orange, pink, dark blue and plum.

I have paired my beautiful kale green with Damson pink and Plum in my Fruit Garden designs.

My Lime green is a brighter fresher green and I have mixed this with a brighter Sweet pea pink and also dark Charcoal grey.

Warm-green walls have a fresh look when paired with natural cream linen curtains, edged in green of contrasting colour, or made from our new fresh Herbaceous Border Detail fabric.

Each bespoke lampshade is beautifully made in our local workshops by professionals, hand finished with great care and attention. Our makers use traditional methods and take a real pride in what they do. With made-to-measure, there is no need to compromise; you can create a unique look with your choice of fabric and those important finishing touches that will complement and co-ordinate your home. There are two shapes to choose from, empire and drum and several sizes. You can choose a second fabric to line the lampshade and choose a diffuser if you wish to hide the bulb.
