The Tie and Dye new versionIf the Tie and Dye trend knew its hour of glory, it has not finished investing our interiors ... with some new codes however to be more chic, more refined, more subtle than ever. Tie and Dye lamps are dressed in colors sometimes washed out or melted like watercolors, sometimes strongly contrasting mixing the infinitely light with the infinitely dark in a variation of very graphic stripes. Depending on the desired atmosphere, you can play the freshness card or the - more moderate - sweetness card. It's up to everyone to harmonize their Tie and Dye lamp with the decor while respecting the codes or, on the contrary, to make it a flagship, vibrant, unique object.

A home-made Tie and Dye lampCreating Tie and Dye lamps yourself for all the rooms in your home is a very economical solution to refresh the decor a bit. It is also an opportunity to express the immensity of a talent hitherto ignored ... The material necessary to make a Tie and Dye lamp with a pretty gradient is really minimalist: a basic lampshade found in a flea market or bought from a large brand, dye for silk, linen and cotton - color depending on affinities - a plastic container large enough to dip the lampshade, and water. It remains to put on a pair of rubber gloves. Then simply immerse the fabric lampshade in the water-dye-fixer mixture, respecting the proportions indicated on the packaging. It is by capillarity that the fabric will soak up the dye. We then obtain a spectacular and refined gradient. After drying, the Tie and Dye lampshade can be attached to its base. With a little experience, the know-how will allow you to create real works of art that will bring all the light necessary for the well-being of everyone, with style and originality.
