If decor is your porn, this is your blog.
Definitely no. They look like wastepaper baskets!
Not so much.
Yes. I like how the stitching match's the kitchen.come on people...open up!!!:)
I think it works...I think it might work a bit better if they were hung rightside UP... But I still like them...In fact, I love them. But I don't believe everything I do in my house people like so there you have it.
I do like how the upside-down lampshades mirror the shape of the stove's venthood. But, overall, it seems silly.
First instinct: No.Second instinct: Makes the kitchen look like a face with a cactus booger. Still no.
They always call to mind restaurant design -- and Edinburgh, where they are uncommonly popular for some reason in large, high-ceilinged Georgian drawing rooms in the New Town. I guess they can look sculptural and moody in the right place (preferably a restaurant in Edinburgh), but they do look faddish.
I think they work in this kitchen. I even like the whipstitching. Adds a great graphic pop. They're less expected than vintage-look schoolhouse type fixtures, which are everywhere.
I would have to say no on this one. Innovative but too confusing to digest.
NOPE.Way to many other choices that would make the lighting bring a tear to your eye
No and the whip stitching makes it an even more emphatic no.
Isn't this Diane Keaton's kitchen? If it is, then it makes perfect sense. Think what you want about her wardrobe, the woman has fantastic taste in design and real estate.
no.i think this is the first time ive ever commented after reading your blog for over a year. so you know how passionate i am about this dammit.
Yes, it is Diane Keaton's place. Good eye, Sparker.
hm. (crickets chirping).i still don't like it.
LOL: "face with a cactus booger"! hahaha!
No. And I feel as sure about this as I did about those skinny faucet handles. :)
The stitching rocks.
David, you're too old for "super no."
Honestly; I sped through the comments ; not wanting to be affected.......by popular opinion........(I think I am immune.....but best be safe!NO!! A bad idea! I; having ben a decorator for 40 years have had some bad ideas!we just have to own them..and most of all, learn from them!I admire the courage to go "out there"!These just plain flunk.Penny
nah. it's disorienting.And it looks like it should be accented by deer antlers.
Why do people put up with things like this from their designers?Are actors so used to being directed that they have no voice of their own?
Thumbs down to the lights, thumbs WAY up to the cool cactus in the pots
Oooh la la !How do you know zey are upside down !
Yes, but not those.
NO! Reminds me to Trading Spaces crap.
I will not abide by this.
No...I applaud trying something different, but just about everything has be thought of and if you've never seen it before...maybe there is a reason. On the brightside (no pun intended)at least the dust collects on the inside of the shade instead of the outside.
I like it.
Do you wear your hats upside-down?
no - makes me want to lay on the table instead of sit at it... which i guess is not such a bad thing...
Not just "no" but why?
Well, if its Diane Keaton we're talking about, you have to let it slide, she's crazy, and in that great kind of way that she is, sometimes the result is some disgustingly adorable upside down lamps.
I like it. Who's to say we haven't been using lightshades upside down all along and this is actually the correct way?
you kids are WAY too uptight. its fun and different. step out of your little boxes and be more open to something out of the norm. i personally hate to see the same damn thing over and over. at least this shows a little originality!
Yes, please. :-)
Generally no. But, I think they work here. Sitting at the table and looking up you aren't exposed to so much harsh bare bulb. For those of you who would say, "get a diffusing plate to hide the bulb," I say that looks too "hospitality." The flared side pointing up gives the room more indirect (read soft) light. Nice for dining.
No! Reminiscent of the upside down Christmas.Yuck!
No!Reminiscent of the upside down Christmas tree.Yuck!
DUDE. YES! Com'on people! Its the shades in this picture that suck, not the idea. Those shades are a little too "Howdy Doody" but the concept can really work. I'm doing this for a task lighting concept on a wall desk, and it's going to look awesome!
No. Unless it was a drum shade.
Sorry, but no.
I'd be open to the idea with different shades...
I am totally yes on this one as a whole. I wouldn't take those lamps and just stick them anywhere though.
that's my dream frig' too. check out my posts on dream frig's a few of months ago!
