So many of the patterns shown here appeal to me (e.g., I've rarely met a stripe I don't like), but in real-life use, I simply don't care for the light thrown off by patterned shades. Even for mood lighting, plain old white or ivory silk or linen shades work best for me--and no pleats, please! Not just patterns, either; I truly love the look of black shades with gold interiors... until the light's turned on. A "thank you" to the author, however, for the interesting selection of patterned shades in different rooms shown here. It's always enjoyable to look and learn.

I'd like to know where your finding these shades! Where I live, NOBODY has patterned shades worth a durn. I can't even find a decent drum shade in any color! The idea of having one shipped seems like a recipe for crushed results. ENVIOUS!

I love patterned shades - they do add pizzaz to a room. The pattern doesn't have to slap you in the face. Subtle is good.

I always walk in any store and tell anyone who asks that I'm just looking - from clothes to furniture to cars. I do a lot of research before setting out and usually have a pretty solid idea of what I'm looking for. If I do need help or decide to buy, I will find the person who first approached me so that if it's a commission situation they get the credit. I don't really like shopping (except at home-improvement and book stores), so I don't want someone bothering me while I'm focused on my mission! If it's furniture, well... That's a big expense for me; I hit several stores before I buy so that I can test-drive a lot in store. If I buy a sofa, I'll have it for 10 years at least, so it needs to be The. Right. One. I've always bought in-store as well, except for items I've stumbled upon on Craigslist or our local yardsale website. Those are usually pieces I have in my head that I'd like to have but haven't actually shopped for - like the makeup vanity I just bought for $75. This thing is a gorgeous beast; solid wood with beautiful, feminine legs (much nicer than my own), with a fold-down mirror. It's exactly what I was looking for, right down to the fact that it needs to be stripped and repainted, which I am actually looking forward to doing. I've also gotten a glider with ottoman for our library and two end units to flank our fireplace for free. Again, all pieces I had a vague idea about wanting but had not shopped for, but when they show up on the free area of the web (and the end units are Ethan Allen), it's simple math.

Well, I avoid crumbling antiques! The only ones I'll buy have to be solid and require little serious work. I'm not that handy, nor do I have extra money to pay craftspeople an arm and a leg for major restoration.

I only buy IKEA for a trendy little accent piece or things you just can't beat them on for the price -- like glassware, wooden hangers, that kind of thing.
