Guest post: 8 ways to use graphics in decor

Have you ever had a serendipitous moment, or moments? I came home from Denmark thinking about light fixtures, I buy a great light fixture and blog about it and interwoven into those 3 events is an email exchange with Jessica from Arcadian Lighting offering to write a guest post on using graphics in decor. Well it was just all such a happy coincidence that I had to say yes so it’s over to you Jessica.

Hi everyone! I’m Jessica, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a great resource for interior design ideas and lighting fixtures. Graphic patterns and decals have become increasing popular in interior designs, and today I’d like to share at least eight ways to use graphics in your home. Thank you to Libby for allowing me to guest post on Current Observations today! Enjoy!

Graphic rugs are quick way to give your room a stylish, trendy makeover. This burnt orange rug with white lattice pattern completes the bright, fun atmosphere of the room.

If you’re not entirely sure about using a graphic rug for a whole room, a smaller rug, like this runner, is a great alternative. The black and white stripes are picked up on the comfy orange and black striped ottoman.

There’s no easier way to transform your bathroom than to change out the shower curtain for something more fun or stylish. This octopus shower curtain is an unexpected choice, but it certainly makes this monochromatic bathroom more lively.

This eclectic office showcases artwork that incorporates graphic letters and vintage design, which ties in the room’s grey and tan color scheme. The intricate shade on the drum pendant light picks up on the lines and swirls in the artwork perfectly.

The neutral palette of this living room provides the perfect canvas for the gorgeous neon pink and white graphic pattern of these armchairs, courtesy of Emily Ruddo of Armonia Decors. The crystal ceiling light fixture is just the right amount of glamour to complete this stylish room.

The graphic wallpaper used on this dividing wall helps section off the sleeping area from the living area in this interesting apartment layout. Graphic wallpaper is perfect for creating accent walls in sparsely decorated rooms such as this one.

Vinyl wall decals are another simple and trendy way to add interest to your home without having to commit to a drastic makeover. These floral flourishes make the room feel even more fresh and playful when combined with the Tiffany blue wall color and black and white accents.
