But what I'm loving at the moment is the addition of a bare or fabric wrapped lampshade. There is something ever so appealing about the shape and structure of a lampshade without a cover, plus it ticks the boxes for me in terms of exposed lightbulbs! Not only that, it is a really thrifty way to add interest to your lighting. Bare lampshades can be picked up at car boots, charity shops or markets for next to nothing; or of course, buy a covered one and just strip it down. If you want to cover it with some fabric it can literally be done with scraps you have lying around, or if you prefer the bare look you could add some colour simply by spraying it with some plastikote paint.
