More Green, Checks, and Chinoiserie

Diamond Baratta
What do we think about the green checked/gingham shades on the blue and white Chinese lamps? Not sure I wouldn't have gone with white or perhaps a solid green silk if I wanted to pick up more green. Thoughts?


  1. This is a very interesting approach...certainly not the "safe" one. I am trying to remember the name of a designer who's blue & white porcelain lamps in his living room have vibrant green shades...Joe Nye, perhaps...I need to search out the picture I am remembering so I can find out for sure. Because I LOVED the green shades on those lamps and thought what a bold and amazing choice they were! Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, Beth!

  2. Yes, Joe Nye did use a green lampshade on one of the lamps in his living room. Great memory!
