guest post: pacific northwest inspirations
Hello! I'm Joanna, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a terrific source for lighting fixtures of all styles. I love to write guest posts like this one to share interior design ideas and images on blogs such as 30 Before 30. My topic today is Pacific Northwest inspirations. This style would be perfect in a lodge-style home or a cabin deep in the woods. Hope you enjoy! The heart of Pacific Northwest style lies in a love of nature, which is a common element in spaces from lodges to urban lofts. Many of these homes feature diverse influences from Asian styles to early Modernism. Below are a few homes that embrace the Pacific Northwest style.
A gleaming honey-toned wood covers the walls and ceiling of a Zen bedroom. Of special note, are the logs used as beams at the ceiling. A sitting area provides a cozy space for conversation or reading.
An open plan space includes kitchen, dining, and living room. The ceiling treatment, which mimics the shape of a tipi, is phenomenal. The differing woods used add interest to the space. Strategically placed light fixtures add warmth.
Wood ceilings soar high above the spaces in another open plan living area. The pale blue gray color palette is soothing and calm.
A natural stone fireplace acts as a focal point in this rustic living room. Neutral furnishings add another natural element to the space.
An impressive example of early Modernism, this open floor plan features sweeping ceilings and an interesting circular architectural feature on the far wall. Track lights run the length of the space.
An ample use of windows brings nature indoors in this warm and cozy living space surrounded in wood.
A light filled bathroom features a Victorian soaking tub and painted wood on the walls and doors for extra brightness.
Another Pacific Northwest dÈcor with modern influences features an oversized sectional, light fixture and nature based artwork.†Images†1†|†2†|†3†|†4†|†5†|†6†| 7 | 8 Feeling inspired by this collection of Pacific Northwest interiors?
