Light up your home

Winter is the time of year that reminds us about the importance of lighting. Beautiful lighting can completely transform any room adding a warming boost to your home – especially during the long winter evenings. Whether you would like to add an elegant atmosphere to your dining room, brighten up your living room, or make a cosy and warm welcoming home; here are three simple ideas to help you create gorgeous lighting.

The charm of lamps

Lighting can affect your mood and even change the way you feel about your home. Make your house cosy this winter with some charming table lamps. This soft and subtle lighting is ideal for relaxing on winter evenings in a comfortable armchair with a nice cup of tea. Adding a uniquely shaped lamp to your home, like the bird-cage one above will feel like you are making an interesting addition and will add a touch of the exotic to your home. There are so many designer lights to choose from which are chic and fashionable. Just let your imagination pick the one that most closely reflects your mood and personal style and gives you the visual effects that you desire.

Are you trends savvy? If so, you should invest in pendant lights, which are a huge trend this winter.  Add remarkable hanging clear baubles to your dining room lights and you will definitely wow your dinner party guests! The clear baubles create an amazing and unique look giving your room a sophisticated, yet warm, feel. Rich, dark shades blend flawlessly forming a beautiful background which will allow the lights to stand out and shine. Black doors, opening onto a black dinning suite, are sure to make an impression and give your guests something to talk about over dinner! (check out Todd Doors black doors)

To add glam and a distinctive touch to your home try making homemade candles that will be unique to you. Challenge your DIY skills and illuminate your home with beautiful lace jar candles that will look great as winter decorations and will impress your family and friends. Create a den-style cosy atmosphere by adding scented candles. Choose aromas such as cinnamon and orange to get Christmassy feel or just go for a fresh floral scent to bring back memories of warmer times. Pop these on your festive table or on the fireplace and they will not only look stunning but will also beautifully scent your home.
