Shopping For Bright Colored Pendant Lamps

A Study in Contrasts: Dark Wallpaper and Poppy Pendants

In the dreariest days of Winter, sometimes you need a major pop of color to lift your spirits. Whether that color comes in the form of a bright bouquet of roses or a smashing new pendant light, it's a perfect way to shake off the mid-February doldrums.

I love the way that these warm red seat covers and sunshine-hued pendant lamp add a lovely contrast to the muted snowflake pattern of the wallpaper in this dining room. Would you believe that the cool table is simply an Ikea base that's had a more luxe tabletop added to it? What a great, simple DIY we should all try!

Contrast is key in making these admittedly disparate elements work. Don't fight it — embrace the different elements completely. To get you started, I've rounded up some dark and moody wallpaper and some admittedly exuberant pendant lamps. Which pairing is your favorite?
