You spoke, so we listened!
Our bespoke handmade lampshades have finally made it to the website, “Celebrate Good Times C’mon”. So, we decided to dedicate our first blog post to these fabulous shades and at the end, give you all some special deals to mark this momentous occasion.
Shopping local, buying handmade and being more aware about the life cycle of what we’re buying are big topics in the media and across the interior world right now. Because of this, we wanted to shout about the fact we stock The Nurtured Nest by Tina here at Visual Roars. Tina is local to Whitstable, Kent, and makes unique lampshades by hand working with unique fabrics, colours and patterns.
As you will see in our showroom snaps below, Tina includes such a wide range of patterns, colours and more to her creations. Which means there’s one for everyone. Or even more than one! Tina has been selling her handmade creations with us for a while now, and they’ve been incredibly popular since the very first selection arrived in the showroom.

A unique lampshade can add wonders to a room! Whether it’s with a textured shade, funky patterned shade, or by including vibrant colours, they can make certain aspects of your room more prominent. They can also add a fun element or a focus point to draw attention to a side table.
In addition to our own images, we searched Pinterest and chose two #inspo images. Pinterest is a great tool to get home styling tips from, especially if you’re stuck in a styling rut and just need to scroll past a few images to get your spark back.
The walls of this living room are very dark with pops of colour coming just from the wall art and objects. By including a silver lampshade (which almost gives a light and bright effect) contrasts perfectly with the room.
The Visual Roars Touch:
If we were to style this room, we would love to play with the colours already found in the space.
Maybe by including a bright patterned lamp such as our ‘Toucan Lamp’ would be a fun colourful addition, going nicely with the cacti statue, and red and yellow accents.
This dining room area is full of colour. The walls, vases and prints all contribute to a fun and busy room.
With a neutral lampshade in this room, on a gold stand, it adds an almost calming element to the space.
The Visual Roars Touch:
We couldn’t not suggest our ever so popular ‘Tropical Flamingo Lampshade’. The brighter pink from the shade would really pop against the bubblegum pink, and the light blue would really stand out.
Compared to what you find on the high street, all of our lampshades are handmade by Tina. Hand crafted with love, care and precision. They are honestly wonderful, and we’ve only ever had positive and amazing feedback from all of our customers. Not only that, all handmade lampshades can be made to your bespoke specification.
