I'm looking for inspiration - what have you got hanging from your bedroom ceilings? And where did it come from?

We have a ceiling fan with lights.....not to everyone's taste but I'm suffering terribly with night sweats confused

I prefer a low light level with additional lighting lamp on bedside table and dressing table. We do have lights in the built in wardrobes and have large windows so plenty of daylight so to speak.

What sort of thing do you like? or if it's easier what don't you like......if find it much easier to say what I don't like then wander Pinterest and Wayfair till is see things I do like

We have a metal shade with laser cut detailing. I can’t do a photo at the moment (we’re in decorating hell) but I think it was from m&s

This is ours, it's from Home Sense.

This is ours. It’s copper and makes nice patterns on the ceiling. Also has a matching side light. We replaced our Ikea ps2014 which I loved but was an awful design and broke. But gorgeous copper interior which we’d decorated around so carried on with copper

We have an old school tapered fabric lampshade in a shade that tones with our walls. Cheap, easy to fit, works for me. It’s actually so old school that most shops don’t even sell them any more but a slightly more modern drum shade would also fit the bill. If I were going shopping today I’d go for one with a copper/gold interior because I think it gives a nice light.

I have this one from John Lewis. I love their lighting.

No as mine is probably a home to lots of spiders going by the cobwebs on it !

No photo but we have white/cream glass shade with a fringe of white glass beads. Neutral, clean looking. I bought it from Amazon where there's a good choice. Have a look on Pintrest for ideas.

This is mine - I made it. (I take custom orders, should anyone want a particular map on a lampshade #shamelessplug )

Most of the lampshades I have that I haven’t made are from Ikea - I find their range varies, but they sometimes have some really nice ones.

JustDoOne Sun 08-Jul-18 23:29:42

Wow donkey! That's fab!

InvisibleToEveryone Sun 08-Jul-18 23:38:33

This is mine, Asda I think??

donkey86 Mon 09-Jul-18 09:52:42

Thanks, justdoone and butterflycookie! I’ve not been making them for very long so I appreciate the validation!

duggeehug85 Mon 09-Jul-18 09:56:07

This was mine! It's still not back up in the new place. It's from John Lewis and I love it!
