It’s nearly the shortest day of the year, eeek, how did that happen?! That also means it’s nearly the darkest day too so it’s time to have a little look at what’s lighting up your life!
Lighting at this time of year is really important, whether it’s setting the scene for a cosy night in or brightening the place up to do some work on your laptop. Whatever you’re planning on doing there’s a light to suit your every need! If you’re planning the perfect dinner party you want to get the mood just right and finding the right lighting scheme is all part and parcel. This Lacey Chandelier Ceiling Light is a great example; it’s has all the dramatic detailing of a chandelier with the practicalities of a pendant lamp shade which makes it ideal as a centerpiece over a dining table.
Alternatively, if you’re having a few guests over you may want to create different lighting levels in your living room instead of relying entirely on overhead lighting. You could start with a vibrant floor lamp like this Very Spindle Floor Lamp which delivers a warm, rich glow. You could then add some softer lighting from something like this Crackle Ball Table Lamp which comes in 4 colours. I love this fantastic shade of pink.
Finally don’t underestimate the difference good lighting can make to your home. If you fancy a change or your room needs a bit of a re-vamp take a look at Very’s lighting section for inspiration. There’s everything from pendant shades to table lamps and floor lamps and everything in between. Don’t forget to check out these fantastic Light and Lamp sets from Very, I particularly like this Lattice Lighting Set.
