Our favourite ways to light up your home this Christmas
Light Up Ornaments
If you’re looking to add small, understated festive touches around the house, light up freestanding ornaments are an ideal solution. To achieve a minimal look, opt for battery powered pieces so that you don’t have the difficult task of trying to hide an unsightly cable. These cute wire Robins are a festive way of integrating industrial chic into your scheme, especially in the copper finish as shown below.
Alternatively, you can achieve the wow factor with a beautiful hanging light ornament, like Lightstyle London’s Hanging Starbursts. Available in black, copper and silver these hanging lights can act as a point of interest inside and outside. The Starburst lights are elegantly simple so you could even use them as a striking feature all year round.
Christmas Mantel Lighting
Fill your living space with festive cheer by adorning your mantelpiece with twinkling lights that complement your scheme. No mains socket near the fireplace? No problem! Lightstyle London offer a selection of both mains and battery operated lights in a variety of styles, so everyone can create the Christmas lighting look of their dreams.
For a nature inspired look, the red berry light chain is a beautiful garland from Lightstyle London. If you’re feeling creative why not scatter a selection of foliage along the mantel with these lights to bring more of the outside in. The battery powered version of these lights would also make a fabulous centrepiece on the Christmas table.
As another alternative to a foliage garland, this opulent Golden Bells Garland exudes glamour and is sure to make a statement on your mantelpiece this season. Not only does this light chain look incredibly festive, the bells also jingle, which is sure to put a smile on even the most scrooge-like of family members faces.
Light wreaths have become increasingly popular in recent years as they are a great way to give your frontage a warm and inviting feel on dark winter nights. Unlike fresh foliage wreaths, your light wreath will last year after year and looks equally beautiful hung inside if you want to switch it up.
For a contemporary alternative to a wreath, you could also opt for a star light on your door this year, like this one from Lightstyle London.
Merry and Bright
When it comes to festive lighting, don’t feel tied to traditional colours if they don’t reflect your overall style. Make it colourful by adding Christmas lights in a multitude of joyful hues. This set of colour changing fairy lights look equally pretty indoor or outdoor, coming with nine colour option settings and three speed levels, you can adapt them to suit the mood and feel of your space at any given time.
Perfect for a Christmas party, the Lightstyle London multi-colour Confetti lights are a playful take on a classic set of fairy lights and look especially fabulous paired against monochrome interiors or on a winter white Christmas tree.
The Folklore light chain is another great colourful piece that you can use at Christmas time or throughout the seasons. Style them on a mantel, in a decorative glass jar or in a child’s bedroom; the possibilities are endless.
Whilst we advocate filling the house with candles all year round, during the winter months and especially at Christmas, this little bit of hygge is an absolute must.
Adorn your Christmas dinner table or mantelpiece with a set of elegant candlesticks like these Tilbury Clear Glass Candlesticks from Grand Illusions. The Tilbury candlesticks are also available in a subtle Light Green shade, just pair with some red or gold dinner candles for a traditional festive theme.
Our love for candles is not only limited to the gorgeous glimmering light that they create, one of the biggest pulls is often the indulgent fragrance they emanate around the room. We’re not alone in saying that Christmas has a distinctive scent that instantly takes you back to all your favourite moments of the holidays. So it’s no wonder that so many Christmas candles have been especially made to recreate those aromas we have come to know and love.
We have a delicious range of Christmas candles from Bomb Cosmetics with different fragrances including Frankincense and Myrrh and Orange and Cinnamon. They also offer a Chocolate Orange candle, so if a certain chocolate orange confectionery takes pride of place in your stocking each year, you’ll adore this one. Scented candles also make a lovely gift and these Bomb Cosmetics candles are made with pure essential oils for the ultimate indulgent experience.
With so many stylish ways to illuminate your home this Christmas you can create a festive lighting scheme completely unique to you. If you have any questions about our lighting range or any of the products mentioned in this article, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to help.
