Light up your life for Less with our Expert Home Decor guide
Light up your life for less
With so much to get obsessed about when it comes to decorating our homes, lighting can often take a back seat – when it really should be taking centre stage.
Beyond the practicality of guiding your way through the darkness, light has the power to lift moods, help you wind down, and instantly change an atmosphere. And with winters shorter days and colder nights already drawing in, its likely youll be spending more and more time in the sanctuary of your own home.
So what better way to add contrast, interest, and a spot a visual drama to your humble abode, than to apply a little bit of light therapy?
Whether youre hoping to create a more inviting atmosphere to welcome in your winter guests, or simply looking to conjure up some added ambience for those cosy evenings curled up on the couch, heres three purse-friendly ways to light up your home this winter for less.
Location, Location, Location
When it comes to planning your layout, the key is to light up locations – not whole rooms. Bright overhead light can make it difficult to wind down at the end of the day, so if youre currently reconfiguring the wiring, its a great idea to spotlight areas that require brightness, and put your big lights on a handy dimmer switch.
But if youre looking for a cost-effective solution that can be applied in a jiffy, its perfectly possible to achieve the same effects with the simple addition of some well positioned lamps. Theyll add warmth, colour and perspective to any room – and instantly create a more soothing atmosphere.
Amongst our stunning collection, youll find our organic-inspired Pebble Range, which comes in both table and floor lamp options in a range of colourways, including on-trend metallics of gold and bronze.
Resplendent in Pendant
In every home across the land, drab light shades can be found lurking beneath forlorn-looking ceiling roses …but why be like every home?
Pendants are a great way to make an instant style statement, and because theyre so quick and easy to fit, even the most unlikely of DIY-ers can add a splash of glam to their pad in mere minutes.
Cascading light across different angles and creating elegant shimmers of colour, our delightful range of pendants include crystal droplets, two-tier prisms, and even a beautiful multi-sensory pendant that peacefully tinkles in the breeze.
Current trends have put pendants right at the forefront of home fashion, and whether theyre offering the aesthetic of a dazzling chandelier, or sculpted into an artisan design, pendant lights will take your house from monotone to showhome in less than the time it takes to make a cup of tea!
Wick and Simple
Candles lend something very personal to a room’s ambiance, and nothing says romantic dinner for two better than the flickering magic of a burning candlelight.
For a quick and simple way to add some wintry romance, group your tealights together in mirrored holders to allow the glittering light to reflect off the surface.
If youre looking to add a more permanent fixture to your home, an eye-catching feature piece will provide a beautiful light feature and a piece of artwork in one foul swoop.
