I have a new lamp shade in our living room.
Do you like it?
I found a pair of curtains at a village jumble sale some time ago. They weren't barkcloth but a heavy linen and so I had no business looking at them. But the selvedge was in French and the colours...oh. I was in love.
They have sat in the non barkcloth pile of my cupboard for some time until one day I read an article about Lisa Bengsston.
Oh my. What a clever cloggs that lady is. I love all of her fabric designs but Baronessa is just great.
I like it in blue....

I LOVE it in pink....
But in chartreuse and chocolate.........I could eat it. All day.
Well..maybe not eat it but you know what I mean..cover everything in it..cushions, chairs, the sofa.
And actually that's not really so hard to do...recover the sofa I mean. Thanks to those brilliant folk at Bemz you can buy new slip covers in Lisa's Baronessa Design for several IKEA sofa's. Bemz have a nice blog and there are reports of covered beds and bed skirts next so don't be suprised to find me drooling badly in a future post.
But for now I am happy to just enjoy my new lampshade. They are similar right?
PS: If you love this original vintage Baronessa looky likey too there's enough for one more large retro drum lampshade in the shop now.
