Thanks to everyone's suggestions for the bare lightbulb in my kitchen. I checked out all of the ideas you guys had and finally settled on one. It came in the mail yesterday, I put it up and I love it, what a difference it makes!
I went with the Lunette Clip-On Shade from Relish and I think it looks pretty darn good. I like that it's minimal and casts a pretty glowing light, it also only took me about 30 seconds to install it since it just clips on. I think it took longer finding the ladder to reach it. But this would also look great on a wall instead of a sconce, I just wish they made them in different sizes: a giant one would be great! Thanks again to everyone that made suggestions!
