Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

GO WITH THE GLOW

Beat the autumn blues and make your living space a cosy place to be with lanterns and soft candlelight

When the evenings draw in, I like to take swift action at home to avoid any seasonal dampening of spirits. The easiest and most effective trick? Switch up your lighting. Table lamps and floor lights are a great way to bring a glow to dark corners, but for a really cosy feeling, nothing beats candlelight. Try grouping lanterns you love in a variety of shapes and sizes on a windowsill, mantelpiece or side table – choose metallic finishes to catch the light. You’ll instantly transform nights in from dark and drab to warm and welcoming: simply snuggle up with a good book or great company, and a glass of wine (or two).

lanterns makes a great feature, even
when the candles aren’t lit”
