Fresh, Modern Houndstooth

Made a change to our living room.  Side by side, the before (left) and today:
 
 
Can you spot the difference?
 
I bought a fabulous new lamp shade!  I love this fresh, modern take on classic hounds tooth!


Here's a close up shot:
 
 
Nicole Duff from Modern Design Studio designed the shade just for me.  It's her fabric design ~ how cool is that?!
 
Interestingly, Nicole launched her business for the same reason I found her shop ~ she couldn't find colorful, modern lamp shades in the stores.  Fast forward a little over a year after opening her shop and her business is booming!  Modern Design Studio has been featured in several international publications, including "House Beautiful" and "Apartment Therapy."
 
Here's a peek into her design studio:

It's eye candy for lamps AND she also designs other home accessories like pillows.  In addition to her exquisite taste and design skills, her customer service is exceptional!  I hope you'll pay her shop a visit and like her Facebook page!
