Don’t be afraid of colours. They can liven up a room whether you just use them as splashes or do the whole room in bright colours. Louis Poulsen has some great pendants and they come in some glorious colours.
Hang a bunch of different colours together and you get a vibrant feel.
Or use one strong colour in an otherwise neutral room to create effect.
So look on the bright side next time you are shopping for lamps or other accessories for your home.
