Do you know when it’s Christmas and you’ve put fairy lights everywhere and you look forward to turning them on so your house is all cosy?
I’ve decided I want to recreate this cosy feeling in the house all year round. I’ve been looking into ways I can do this and using lighting is a really good way to change the ambience and style in a room, so I’m sharing some tips and inspiration below.
When you’re working
It’s important I don’t get too cosy when working otherwise I run the risk of not getting much done! I love these studio-style lights below for my spare room and larger versions in the living room for a reading corner.
When you want to relax
I think this calls for some candles! I’ve seen so many beautiful images on Instagram and realised I don’t have any candles at the moment. I am planning on ordering some from Next, as soon as I can get onto their website.
When you’re watching films
You probably want dim to no light at all but I personally love fairy lights when watching films (especially a Christmas film). I have ordered some to place underneath my telly on its cabinet for this.
When you’re having dinner
I would like to have a different lighting feel to the ‘dining room’ which is an open plan space with my living room. So I love these lights that I think will create a restaurant feel to when I’m eating my dinner, although I’ll have to make sure we can definitely see what we’re eating! Plus, I think this will help with switching off from work mode as it’s a different atmosphere and I won’t see my dining table as my desk.
Do you have any other tips on how to make the home cosier? I would love to hear your suggestions.
