Guest Post on Retro Lighting

While I'm busy getting lost in my AutoCAD files for class, I'm happy to introduce my guest blog from Arcadian Lighting and the world of retro finds. Be inspired people, this is some cool stuff!
I'm Susi, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a fantastic resource for lighting ideas and décor trends. I'm delighted to be a guest of Green & Indie today. Retro lighting is one of my favorite finds at thrift stores and auctions. Just remember, if you are buying vintage lighting fixtures, you might want to have it rewired just to be safe. Here are some of my favorite eclectic rooms with fabulous retro lighting.

For an eclectic style décor, vintage or retro lighting is a good match. A vintage lamp, like this one, fits in perfectly with the mix of styles in this eclectic Asian inspired living room.

A vintage orange glass pendant light adds a pop of color to this eclectic powder room. The orange really stands out against the contrasting leafy green wallpaper.

I love the kelly green retro pendant light in this modern meets farmhouse home office. The kelly green pops against the light blue of the painted armoire.

With a little help from some spray paint, even outdated retro lighting looks stylish. Brass colonial style chandeliers have a retro look that can be chic with a change of color or funky shades.

A pair of vintage school house hanging pendants makes for perfect lighting for over the dining table in this eclectic space. Industrial meets vintage meets global décor in this family friendly dining room.

Retro Murano glass lamps have seen a comeback in the past few years. These beautiful glass lamps look gorgeous in an elegant eclectic décor.

A mix of retro lamps suits this eclectic living room. An industrial style swing arm lamp and a tall 60s retro lamp both work in the space.

The retro table lamp/floor lamp combo works in this space that is eclectic with a mid-Century Modern twist. Look for retro and vintage floor lamp at thrift stores and tag sales.
