We can talk a bit more about those once they’ve been installed. (Soon!) As far as the shades go though, I ordered a bunch to gauge quality (Royal Designs ftw), and among the options were black pleated shades. I loved them! Brandon hated them! Friends gently suggested that they looked dated, and Brandon said they belonged in a hotel. Since nobody liked the dated hotel look (except me — I forever and always love granny details), I went with sleek paper shades. They look fine. They look great, actually. But I’m still longing for a pleated shade.
There’s a whole lot to love about this room designed by Miles Redd, but that pink pleated shade is particularly lovely.
More pink pleats from Miles Redd.
And Summer Thornton delivers too.
I noticed when I was browsing table lamps for this post that I passed right by the one below on the left, but instantly gravitated toward the one on the right. It’s a smidge more traditional than I would typically go for, but oh, the difference a shade can make.
Yep. I’ve got to get some pleats in my home. I’ll leave you with a couple of vignettes from a room designed by Hamish Bowles to further make the case for granny details.
