Something Different Today

A guest post for today with lot's of inspiring photo's too.
Today's guest post is from Susi, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a must-shop resource for beautiful light fixtures. Inspired by the blooming zinnias and marigolds in the garden right now, Susi found interiors that draw upon the bold, bright colors of these two garden favorites. Yellows, golds, oranges, pinks, and fuchsias combine into lively palettes for any room of the home. Enjoy!

Zinnias are an old fashioned flower like marigolds that have a depth and richness of petals and colors that inspires bright, happy spaces. So incredible!

Pale pinks and yellow, swirls of colors seen in certain zinnias are a nice offset to the marigold orange painted cabinet.† Love the riot of colors.

Muted shades of zinnias and marigolds color this living room from the marigold yellow sofa to the zinnia-inspired accent pillows in fuchsias and oranges.

This unabashedly pink and feminine bedroom has lovely, rich accents of marigold and deeper pink and red zinnias in the linens and accessories to balance out the pink walls. Always aware of a room's lighting, we love the tiny wall sconces above the bed.

When combined, orange and fuchsia have a vintage feeling to them. This lively marigold sofa is paired with pinks and fuchsias in the rug and throw pillows.

We love the way that marigolds and zinnias dot the garden with bursts of color. This library has the same feeling. Pinks and orange accents and a yellow sofa pop against the black shelves.

The cluster of globes and pompoms resembles a bouquet of marigolds and zinnias fresh from the garden in this kidís room. Orange curtains add more color to the mostly white space.

Layers of garden pinks and oranges fill this bedroom: marigold orange and pink and white zinnias in the wallpaper; deep pink zinnia headboards; a marigold yellow lamp that brings even a light fixture into the color palette. All the warm hues work in harmony.
