What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Go Bold with Accent Lamps
Juicy hues play beautifully against warm woods in this space. The shiny colored glass lamps adds a zest of lime and makes subtle shades of green in the artwork and cushions more prominent.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Green Brings a Room to Life
Green is a perfect accent color, especially when paired with other saturated colors such as red. And as they are complimentary colors, they work well together while adding a vibrant energy. Tip: Using green and red together works best when used in an otherwise neutral room, and keep the tones away from shades typically used in holiday decor.
Lily Gahagan added this to Design Details: Introduce a Hit of Red
It takes a lot to compete with a granny smith apple green, but this red upholstered chair is giving that lamp a run for its money.
The Mobius Table from DWR. Oh, those table legs! The neighborhood will be talking about how cool this table is. It’s mid-century retro contemporized by a glass top. Pair it with a neon lamp and brightly upholstered furniture. and the neighbors will go from talking to drooling.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Colorful
Style Secret: Judicious EditingIf you crave a hit of color but aren't so sure about pulling out all the stops, take heart: A space can still read as colorful even when the surfaces are mostly neutral. This living room, though grounded in creams, browns and beiges, is anything but bland, thanks to the red chair and ottoman, the green accent pieces and the bright artwork. Color your world: Because colors perform differently in relation to other hues that surround them, a neutral foundation can work to your advantage. Against the pale walls, for example, that red chair really pops. High contrast leads to drama and energy, and that's part of what a colorful room is all about.
Samantha Schoech added this to 10 Vibrant Midcentury Modern Living Rooms
A Moebius side table sets the mid-century tone here. But the contemporary art, bright upholstery and accessories make the room bright and unique.
Fred Albert added this to How to Choose a Lampshade
ShapeIf the base is round, it will look best with a round shade.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Downsizing Help: Color and Scale Ideas for Comfy Compact Spaces
Color is equally effective in small homes when used on furniture and accessories rather than walls. The deep orange of this side chair and the lime-green pillow and lamp make this room pop with joy.Also note that the window and door trim has been painted a strong contrasting color. Unexpected hues on trim, beams, windowsills — even radiators — can create depth and visually expand the room.

Complementary; colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. This color scheme is very popular because the colors go really well together so it draws a lot of attention.

5. Complimentary Colors: Complementary colors are those opposite each other on the color wheel. In this design, they used a green lamp, green plant, and green pillow as one of the complimentary colors. The used a red chair, red picture on the wall, and red in the pillow as the other complimentary color.

Height As a rule of thumb, choose a shade that's two-thirds the height of the base. That proportion assures that the lamp won't look top or bottom heavy. You also want to make sure the shade doesn't expose any of the hardware underneath, such as the harp (the wire frame around the lightbulb).
