should lamp shade colors/tones match
All of the lamp shades in my living room are cream, beige, and light tan (fwiw, they are all silk or some similar fabric).
I do not like the shades on my buffet lamps. Although they are beige, they are too large. I found some shades that are the perfect size but they are white white white. When I tried them out in my living room, they stood out too much, I thought.
Is it just because they are different from what I'm used to seeing there, or is it because the colors should all be of the same tonal family?
