Today is the first day ever the Living Fresh blog is welcoming a guest blogger and to kick it off we have Mari here from Arcadian Lighting.

Hello, everyone! It’s Mari here from Arcadian Lighting, a fabulous online place to discover light fixtures of all sorts, lighting ideas and trends. I’m so excited to be visiting at Living Fresh.

Today’s guest blog is about modern wood paneling—fresh updated wall coverings that are going up in new homes and renovated spaces around the globe. For years, wood paneling has gotten a bad rap, but it’s slowly earning a new much-deserved stellar reputation. From stunning deep-toned sheets to pieced-together reclaimed wood walls, modern wood paneling is back. We hope you enjoy the new world of wood.
