Bringing Room to life with Tribal prints

Today’s guest post is from Susi, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a fabulous source online for lamps and light fixtures for your home at reasonable prices. The Arcadian Lighting blog is a good resource for tips and trends in lighting fixtures. 
Tribal prints, those colorful and bold patterns from around the globe, add so much color, pattern and texture to a room. Bring your rooms to life with tribal prints used in textiles, rugs, curtains, upholstery and other decorative objects. We've gathered some rooms that are alive with tribal pattern. Be inspired!

Tribal prints add amazing color, pattern and texture to a room.  Whether you use fabric, rugs or other materials with tribal prints, these prints will definitely add life to your room.

Tribal prints, in the form of Moroccan poufs and a Kilim rug, liven up this neutral living room. Neutral walls don't compete with the riot of color and pattern from the poufs and rug.

Ikat has become such a popular print it is easy to forget that it is a tribal print from Bali.  Ikat print works for upholstery, curtains, pillows, and rugs... the list goes on and on.

A contemporary bathroom gets a dose of color and style from a tribal print wall hanging and a tribal rug.  Both add color and pattern to the minimalist space.

Navajo rugs and prints are perfect for modern lodge and rustic styles.  These graphic tribal prints and other Southwestern prints are making a comeback.

A Suzani fabric used as a throw and Ikat patterned pillows add color, pattern and texture to this bed.  Mixing different tribal prints with eclectic furnishings and light fixtures gives a room a cool bohemian style.

Tribal prints are not limited to textiles and rugs. These woven baskets have a great graphic pattern that is shown off by hanging them as wall d├ęcor in this foyer.

Dutch wax cloth, ubiquitous throughout Africa, is a boldly patterned and colorful tribal print. It is great for pillows, accent pieces, like ottomans, or other decorative accessories.
Thank you for a lovely post Susi.
