Rustic Lamp Shades
Whichever decorating style you prefer, accessories are important. Rustic lamp shades, for example, add to the overall look and feel of a room decorated in the western, lodge, or rustic style. Accessories and accents, such as lamps and shades, toss pillows, throw rugs or accent rugs, and table decorations are what really provide the flavor for a room and identify the room's theme (when there is one).
It would be hard to describe rustic lamp shades with just one description because of the wide variety of looks from several different types of materials. The extensive list of materials includes parchment, kraft paper, linen, faux leather, suede, birch bark, mica, and art glass.

Lamp shades of almost any style come in a variety of shapes, such as round, square, and rectangular. Often, the shade is tapered and the bottom of the shade is wider than the top. This can give the lamp an interesting look, but it also allows the light from the lamp to cover a broader area.

Some rustic lamp shades use a strip of rawhide to actually lace the shade material to the frame. Sometimes, a similar lacing effect is used only as a decorative trim because the shade is secured to the frame by more conventional means.

A room needs good sources of light anyway, so why not use lamps and shades that match or complement the other furnishings and accessories in your room? The rustic style of lamps and shades go well in a room decorated in a casual style, such as the western, lodge, or rustic decorating styles. Whether the lamp provides light to read by, or it has a low-wattage bulb for mood lighting, a lamp and shade that adds a decorative touch really lights up a room, in more ways than one.
