happy tuesday and a guest post

Hi, Susi here from Arcadian Lighting, 
a site that specialized is really quality light fixtures and lamps
Today's guest post is about how pattern plus color equals lively, 
stylish spaces. Mixing color and pattern is an art. 
Too much can feel chaotic, while a lack of color and pattern can be boring. 
Look for colors and patterns that complement one another for a stylish 
design that will feel polished. Here are some of our favorite ways to mix 
color and pattern to create lively spaces. Enjoy!
Lively Spaces  
Elle Decor
Picking a color palette allows you to mix in bold patterns and keep a well
designed look. Love the ikat patterned curtains and the boldly patterned 
rug and table light fixtures in blues and reds.
Lively Spaces Flor
Gorgeous color and pattern on the floor creates a lively look for a living room or bedroom.
Love these suzani patterned carpet tiles that add color and pattern to the room.
Lively Spaces An Indian Summer
Global textiles and rugs add lively colors and patterns to this bedroom. Keeping the walls white allows
the textiles to be the stars of the design.
Lively Spaces Remodelaholic
Saturated wall color and lively pattern in white make this a lively space. White and yellow make for
a cheerful color combination with a lot of energy.
Lively Spaces Pinterest
Bright wall colors can handle boldly colored patterned upholstery. Love the yellow and white
chevron patterned chair mixed with the pink walls and chairs. And who could resist the lovely 
choice of lighting fixtures?
Lively Spaces Etsy
Use a stencil like this one and your favorite color paint to create a lively wall in your bedroom, 
dining room, powder room or living room. The bolder the color, the bolder the pattern.

This Anna Spiro decorated bedroom is pattern and color layered on more pattern and color that
creates a very lively design. Mixing this many patterns and colors may not be for everyone, but use
it as inspiration to be bold.
Lively Spaces Shelterness
Pattern and color can liven up a kitchen. Love the patterned drum shade pendant light and matching
upholstery on the kitchen chairs. Plates on the wall add more color and pattern.

Would you put some pattern & color into your house after looking at these fabulous photos?
I hope you are inspired! Don't forget to check out more lighting fixtures at Arcadian Lighting.
