It is not necessary to stick with the same decor style - unless you want to make a strong statement about that particular style. If updating a traditional room - a contemporary or modern lamp may be the right choice. But, be sure to relate the existing decor in some manner - through color, scale, and/or material. Typically, conical shaped shades provide a more traditional look, whereas a drum shade provides a more modern look.
To avoid buyer's remorse you'll want to measure the square footage of the room before heading off to the store to make your purchase. You'll also want to consider where you'll be placing the lamp and the dimensions of any surfaces the lamp will be resting on.
Colour choices in lampshades will depend on personal preference, the lamp style and colour, and the decor in the room. Multi-coloured or hand painted lamps should be paired with a muted or single colour shade. For single colour lamps, shades can range from complementary colours to crazy prints.
