Eddie Ross + Elle Decor = EE


A little over a week ago, I received a phone call from my friend Eddie Ross.  He needed some lampshades and lamps for Bloomingdale’s Big Window Challenge. He brought in a pair of wonderful peacock blue, mid century lamps that he got from Deborah at Buck House.

We had a wonderful time designing the shades for these, going through 100′s of papers, fabrics and trims.  Settling on Gold Leaf wallpaper from Phillip Jeffries. The lamps had so much to offer in the way of design and color, the shade for them needed to be just as strong, but not overpowering.  I think they came out fantastic.


I was also lucky enough to have a small pair of peacock blue lamps to coordinate, I made matching shades for them as well.  These lamps sit tucked away on a book shelf filled with eye candy.

The display for this room setting in in the window of Bloomingdale’s in New York City.  There is a contest between three very talented people, each very different and each with style.  I have a bias for Eddie’s window, (it does help that I did the lampshades for him)I just love it.

Head on over to Bloomingdale’s Big Window Challenge , read all about each room, the people who designed them and cast your vote.  I won’t tell you who I have voted for I will let you guess.

Thank you Eddie for including me in this fabulous project, I am looking forward to seeing it next week in person.

    Your creations light up our lives. Everything that you do is unique and one of a kind unless some one orders 2 of a kind just for them. Your eye for design and color has created many gems which you readily share with others. Eddie, your collection display and color choices are unmatched!!

  5. Susan,
    The Bloomies lamps are beyond great! Congratulations on your success. How is Tonto and his sister?
