Good Morning! We have a guest on the blog today! Welcome Joanna! If anyone is in need of some new lighting, read on for today’s giveaway!!

Hi there! I’m Joanna, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, the online go-to source for all things lighting. I love interior design, architecture and art. I spend my days finding the loveliest designs on the web and then sharing them through guest posts like this one about decorating with the charming look of chinoiserie for FlutterFlutter.

Dating back to 17th century Europe, chinoiserie made a comeback in the 20th century and is still going strong to this day. Whether it is a bold print on the bed or a Chinese-esque light fixture, a modern interpretation of classic chinoiserie can be found in the rooms below. Thanks for letting me share!

A simplistic, nature-based room gets a touch of chinoiserie with a bird motif on the bed. A retro light fixture adds interest.
