Welcome Guest Poster Mari from Arcadian Lighting!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to welcome Mari from Arcadian Lighting today as she highlights some very fun vintage ideas about metalwork. Thanks for the ideas Mari!

Hello there! It's Mari visiting from Arcadian Lighting, a fabulous place to go for light fixtures and online lighting news and trends. One of my favorite things about writing for Arcadian Lighting is that I often have the amazing opportunity to do guest posts for great blogs like The Blue Kazoo. Don't you love that name? Today's topic is about decorating with vintage metal pieces. Right now, with so much interest in getting the industrial look, it's easier than ever to find inspiration for dÈcor that includes metal. Here are seven eye-catching ways to bring metal into interior spaces and one irresistible outdoor space. I hope you enjoy them and will be inspired to explore vintage metal!
Vintage Metal A bit out of the ordinary, this metal cabinet on curvy legs has an attached mirror. The vintage lover who discovered this piece is lucky indeed. Yellow is an inspired choice for decorative accessories in this space. Vintage Metal Vintage metal lighted signs seem to always be popular year after year. Many are so large they don't readily lend themselves to hanging on interior walls, but this one is just the right size. Vintage Metal What vintage metal is more iconic than a gas range for the kitchen? I love this style (on legs) and the minty green is amazing with lemony yellow walls and cabinets. Vintage Metal The washer and dryer may be contemporary state-of-the-art, but the sink and watering cans, buckets and tubs are pure vintage galvanized metal. I wouldn't have expected this particular hanging pendant light in this space, but it works well here. Vintage Metal A vintage cart on wheels becomes a convenient place for linens and other necessities in a vintage bath with clawfoot tub. Vintage Metal It's impossible to do a post about vintage metal and not include a favorite iron bed. This one is delicate and feminine with pretty patterned bedding and curtains. Vintage Metal Another iconic metal piece is the compelling French Tolix chair. I love these well-loved vintage yellow onesóyes, there are eight around one table. A perfect lighting fixture for this dining space is a green vintage pendant. Vintage Metal As promised, here is that one outdoor space, complete with another iron bedstead. Like I said, it is irresistible vintage metal! Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
