There is something to be said about the combination of stylish wallpaper and modern lighting. This pairing is often the very thing to take a space from ordinary to extraordinary. It’s easy to see how mixing really great lighting and a pretty pattern is appealing and welcoming to all members of a home.  Clearly, there are many different ways to implement this look. I love the approach of not taking the wallpaper from floor to ceiling (shown above), but leaving some open space which, in turn, makes room for the light fixture to stand out and shine. And, choosing a modern fixture in a traditional silhouette is such a great idea. If your wallpaper is bold in either color or pattern, than opt for a simple pendant light . This way, the light doesn’t have to compete with the pattern. Instead, it pops out and compliments the wall like a beautiful accessory. Have you ever thought about being so bold as to mix pattern upon pattern? Somehow all of the mismatched wallpaper and textiles seem to match just right. A patterned drum shade pendant blends right in with layers of pattern found all over a room. I love this bohemian space that, instead of looking busy, somehow manages to evoke a relaxed look. Wallpaper (and pattern) doesn’t always have to be busy or overwhelming. It can be simple, monochromatic, interesting and not overpowering. If this is the look you like than why not consider a brightly colored lamp for a pop of color or added interest? If you aren’t sure where to start when decorating or updating a room than I suggest starting with pattern and great lighting. It will liven things up in an instant, adding a creative style that both parent and child will equally adore.
