BRIGHTEN UP YOUR
HOME

Come home to a warm, inviting space after the festive decor comes down with this simple, year-round way to cheer up your interiors

When Christmas is over and the decorations come down, your usual interior scheme can suddenly feel too bare. String lights are a zero-effort way to beat the January blues and give your home a bright, welcoming feel that lasts well beyond the festivities. Choose warm white for a soft, magical glow and keep colourful lights for Christmas. For a striking feature, drape lights over a mirror in your hallway, string them along living room shelves or arrange in an empty fireplace. Whether you’re coming home on a dark winter evening or retiring inside after a summer meal alfresco, they’ll create an inviting atmosphere that will lift your spirits all year round.
