I've really enjoyed making bespoke lampshades for myself for once.  I'm so pleased with the simple striped shades I made for our newly decorated bedroom to go on a pair of old brass lampbases.

They are my signature half-shades so provide the perfect light for reading in bed.

The stripe echoes that in the curtains (fabric by Swaffer) and one of the wallpapers (by Nina Campbell) .

I love the hand-blocked look of the two papers…

… the way the light falls on the fabrics …

and the textures in the plant-papers used for the lampshade.
