Pip was super inspired in Paris by all the fabulous lighting. In particular interesting bulbs, huge beaded chandeliers, feathered pendants and engineered hanging frames. It is seriously easy to add a WOW light to a space, but the experts suggest scale is the key. There is some great inspiration online and some seriously clever people writing blogs out there. Here we share some of our favourites with a focus on posts about feature lighting.
Left: Fabric covered drum pendants are so great. They look uniform in shape and yet offer intense colour and character to your room. Nordic Design is an awesome resource full of scandinavian inspired design, interiors, architecture and lifestyle. Check out our colourful drum pendants - at Jumbled Online they would look fab above a long dining table or a kitchen bench!
Right: Room Service lives up to its name. But instead of providing food, it provides gorgeous pictures of interiors, houses and other inspiring images from around the globe. Sit back, relax and enjoy the beauty from your lounge!
Right: Oh Emily Henderson. You are so cute - her catch phrase is "perfection is boring, let's get weird" We are so down with that! This City House Tour features some great pendants and bulbs.
Left: This pic is from a fabulous blog - Seventh House on the Left, by Ashley and Greg Brown. It is just so gorgeous. They look like such a cute couple and all their posts are about renovating, decorating and living in their first home. Really fun.
Centre: Apartment Therapy is all about saving the world one room at a time. I do believe this feathered pendant would save my bedroom and at the risk of sounding a little crazy, I really, really, really, really need it now.
Right: This gorgeous blog 'sf girl by bay' is bohemian modern style from a San Francisco girl. Super cute, lots of great house pics and she loves colour. This pic comes from a post labelled 'Orange is the New Black' - we have a little crush forming!
Left: I don't know what I prefer more, the wallpaper or the gorgeous mushroom lamp! This fab french blog Planet Deco showcases beautiful interior decorations from around the world. Unless you can translate french fluently the writing won't be much good, however the pictures are inspiring!
Right: Wow... just wow. Design Tripper is definitely worth a look. It explores the intersection of travel and design with genuine curiosity and good taste.

We have been noticing a lot of stylists using soft pastels with edgy metallic colours. It is a trend we are loving and feel totally inspired by. At Jumbled we are all about mixing, not matching! Colour clashes are welcomed and we find throwing together unusual colour combinations fun and personal.
There is something elegant and feminine about the comination of the soft pinks with the coppers and gold. It could be easily used in any room of your house and accentuated through textural pieces. For example, gold wire pendants with pink woolen blankets. Or a peach coloured lounge with a copper side table. Even a tarnished, silver bedhead with dusty pink, orange and soft green bedding.
Here are some of our favourite examples we found on blogs and online that have inspired us to use this trending technique in our houses. The D.I.Y. tin vases are definitely making a cameo at our next dinner party! Also watch out for some fun new pieces popping up online and in store!
