Blue Ticking Lampshades

7.20.2015

I love a good bargain and especially when it's something that's been a favorite of mine like blue ticking. Of course I love red ticking, too or any color ticking.

Did y'all notice anything different in the guest room when I shared the new bedding last week.......

........like these ticking lampshades from the Pottery Barn outlet that made my heart skip a beat when I first spied them?

Of course when there are new blue ticking lampshades involved that means changing out the lamps that were here before for a bit. So I took out the Ikea lamps and replaced them with the lamp bases that were in the other guest room. Y'all swap things around like that, too don't you? 

The blue ticking just works so well with the new look in here and I actually had the lampshades before I knew anything about the bedding. It was like it was all meant to be.



And while you are styling a room and add vintage hydrangeas to a pitcher to hang at the end of the bed and a big bloom breaks off what do you do with that?

Tuck it in an ironstone sugar bowl of course.

Like I have said before, just changing your lampshades is such and easy update for a new look and they don't have to cost much.
 I scored the ticking lampshades that were regularly $59 each and I got them for $9.99 each plus an extra 15% off!

I had a great time at Haven over the weekend, but barely took any pictures. We were just always too busy and having fun!

Have a fabulous week!

  1. Kim,
    I have loved every change you have made to your guest room but the way it is now is by far my favorite. Love every detail to this room. The blue ticking lamp shade is perfect and just love every inch of this room. You know I am a neutral girl but after seeing this room and how you did it I want to add the reds, blues and whites to my guest room. So awesome, fun and inviting. Love this guest room. Hope you had fun at Haven.

  2. I love ticking too, and those lampshades were so meant to be for the room and the price, oh my goodness! I wish we had a PB outlet near us. I love everything about your guest room, it is so inviting and beautiful! I didn't take many pictures either, was having too much fun and chatting away at Haven. It's always so great to see you, wish it wasn't just once a a year!

  8. Wow wee! No, I did not notice the blue ticking shade but it is just perfect for your room. Since there is no PB outlet near me, I'm thinking that I just need to make my own ticking shade! Heehee!

  9. Kim, what a lovely room and yes I shop my home a lot. Just bought two blue & white checked lampshades at Home Goods for $15 and put them on our bedroom lamps...so cute! They said for "kid's rooms" but we are all "kids" at heart! Then I put my burlap shades in the guest room for a refresher. Love change!
