{Guest Post} Joanna From Arcadian Lighting

12/12/2011

Hi lovelies. I love many of the products on Arcadian Lighting and invited Joanna to share some of her favorite ways to decorate a room. Enjoy, and we hope you find some lovely looks for your home.

Hi there! My name is Joanna and I'm a writer for Arcadian Lighting, the go-to source for all things lighting on the web including light fixtures and decorating ideas. Each day I search the Internet for the best of the best when it comes to images of interior designs to share with readers of blogs like The Short & The Sweet Of It. Hope you enjoy this guest post about bold stripes! Bold stripes give a room character and movement. Many of our favorite rooms feature a stripe, whether it's on a chair, the ceiling or a wall. What is your favorite way for a room to wear its stripes?

Imagine waking up to this cheery striped bedroom every morning! The muted gray headboard looks lovely against the brightness of the stripes.
Stripe Decor
This bold stripe has an Alice in Wonderland feel to it--weíre just waiting for the Cheshire cat to pop in. A crystal lamp paired with a ghost chair adds another touch of whimsy. Recessed ceiling lights add another exciting dimension to the black and white stripes.
Stripe Decor
A childrenís playroom gets its own fix of stripes on a tall storage cabinet. There is such a whimsical feel when stripes are used in kidís spaces.

Reserved black and white stripes get a hint of frivolity from a lime green chaise lounge and a cow skin rug.

Primary stripes in differing widths give this space an active feel. Slipcover chairs mimic the bold stripes on the walls.

This bedroom gets an energy boost from stripes that go up and over the room. The petite red light fixture hanging off to the side is a fun addition to the space.

A nursery gets revved up with Tonka truck yellow on the walls and bold construction zone stripes on the ceiling.

Bold black and white stripes give this entry a sophisticated feel. The fuchsia trim on the chair adds even more interest to the space. Stripes are always sweet and chic.
