diy rustic linen lampshades

these simple rustic linen lampshades would really set the tone for a home that you want to give a natural, comfortable and cozy feel. pictured above is the lampade bigger by orietta marcon, but remodelista has turned this idea into a diy project, so that with a few simple supplies we can make them ourselves! their wrinkled shades and earth tone colors really make them stand out as unique pieces. in this house, i envision antique furniture, cozy nooks and comfortable seating areas- and maybe even some cute wooly sheep out the window!

at night, they give off a warm, rustic and romantic light. i think a smaller version would also be beautiful hung over a dining room table, or reading nook. head on over to remodelista for the diy instructions!

please welcome guest poster, sam from good meausure & inklore design

Hi there, my name is Sam.  I am a block print artist living with my wonderful husband and adorable children in San Jose, California.  When I’m not blogging, designing, or printing I enjoy all of the small pleasures of life: warm bread, fresh basil from the garden, a finished project, something pretty for my home, clean sheets, a good hearty laugh, or a cup of tea and good book.  Bonnie invited me to stop by today to share some of my favorite things with you.  Enjoy!


For me, there is nothing better than the texture of linen, sewn into simple shapes and a bit of jewelry to add some sparkle to my days.


In my home, I am drawn to modern architecture and art, always married with warm wood tones and creamy ceramics.  I hope my friends would say my home is clean, but comfortable, a great place to have a cup of coffee and relax.


On my kitchen table, there will always be simple food, made with fresh ingredients, plus plenty of coffee and a fair bit of dessert to go around.


I love to dig in the dirt, and my favorite plants are those that are willing to share with the inside of the house too.  Whether it is big leafy plants, gorgeous succulents, or food from the veg patch, bringing the outside in is the best part of gardening.
