guest post: brilliant hues by arcadian lighting

Hi, I'm Susi, and I usually am writing about the latest in lighting trends for the Arcadian Lighting blog. I'm so happy to be guest blogging for DESIGN My Heart Out about brilliant hues. My focus today is on brilliant hues, those colors that zing with intensity, adding energy and style to a space. These intense colors can have a big impact in a room so if you aren't feeling brave and bold, use them as accent colors in decorative accessories or lighting fixtures. Thanks for letting me visit! Enjoy!
Brilliant Hues
Brilliant orange chairs pop against the aqua of the beautiful wallpaper in this SF dining room. Love the clarity of the orange; it has a lot of white in it.
Brilliant Hues
The painter Yves Klein is known for this brilliant blue hue that almost vibrates. I can't see it without thinking of him. Gorgeous on an accent wall.
Brilliant Hues
Pairing two contrasting brilliant hues, like blue and orange, next to one another will intensify the color of each. Love the salmon pink of this orange against the brilliant blue walls and the gorgeous contemporary crystal chandeliers.
Brilliant Hues
Brilliant yellow is such a happy color. Love it paired with preppy Kelly green, and tons of white table lamp for a crispy, cheerful bedroom.
Brilliant Hues
Mixing brilliant hues with dark colors makes the bright colors pop even more. Mixing contrasting brilliant hues together creates even more energy in the room.
Brilliant Hues
Painting a single piece of furniture a brilliant color instantly creates a focal point. Brilliant citrus green looks great against pale grey and white.
Brilliant Hues
Love the pops of brilliant color based off of the beautiful modern portrait in this Hollywood Regency style living room. Jewel tone fuchsia and yellow look amazing next to gold accents. Love the asymmetrical look of the chandelier used in this space.
Brilliant Hues
How beautifully the brilliant fuchsia is contained within the canopy bed. Close the curtains and you'd be surrounded by glorious bright color. Great for a girl of any age.
