Guest Post: Jessica from Arcadian Lighting

Hi everyone! I'm Jessica with Arcadian Lighting. Every day I get to write about beautiful light fixtures and the best of the best when it comes to interior design inspirations. That's why I'm delighted to be guest posting for Danielle today because I'm going to be sharing some very chic interiors that incorporate that traditionally lucky color blue. I hope you enjoy!

Blue Interior

This spacious living room is fun and retro with a beautiful deep blue as its accent color. I love the mix of old and new – the velvet sofa and shag carpert recall very different time periods. And the planet mobiles in all dark blue are a cool focal point.

Blue Interior

A rather minimally decorated kitchen becomes especially beautiful and fresh with these royal blue chairs and retro frigidaire. I love the single modern pendant light with silver lining over the table.

Blue Interior

The chandelier and sparkling crystal glasses and candleholders are the perfect final touch in this elegant dining room. The soft blue wall color and curtains pick up on the beautifully displayed china.

Blue Interior

The deep turquoise painted shelves make a lovely accent wall in this living room and subtly sets off the pale blue floor. The crisp blue and white is a cool contrast to the rustic, distressed furniture.

Blue Interior

I love the patterns in this bedroom vignette. The turqoise dresser is just beautiful and eye-catching, just like the floral pendant light above it.

Blue Interior

Another regal interior with pale blue and white walls – a color combo that always strikes me as classically chic and aristocratic. The gilded wall sconce and dramatic, luxurious bathtub complete the royal scheme.

Blue Interior

Dark royal blue is one of the best colors to pair with white because they both enhance each other. The white appears whiter and the dark blue looks even more rich. I like that one single painting commands all the attention.

Blue Interior

This California inspired living room is simply cool and relaxing. The varying shades of blue are just right against the neutrals in the rest of the room.
