If you are trying to add warmth and color to a room, colored and patterned lamp shades are perfect. Many people tend to gravitate towards white or cream colored shades where a colored lamp shade is more appropriate. The warmth is created by the way the shade can disburse the light. But not only is color an important aspect of the perfect lampshades, the shape of the shades is also critical. Having a lamp shade that is either too big or too small for the light fixture can look odd and out of place.
