Make your holiday lighting sparkle

With such an intense year coming to an end, there’s no doubt that getting together with friends and family will be extra special. Why not celebrate in style? Lighting is a great way to decorate your home for this holiday season. We’ve compiled our expert tips for three key focal points in your home and how to incorporate the right balance of festivity and fashion. 

Facade and main entrance

The facade is the first thing your guests see, therefore, you want to make a cheery first impression. Festoon lights framing the door can capture people’s attention. They are great to wrap around trees or to outline windows and produce a magical effect. Add a vibrant shine to your door with a grand festive light relevant to the holidays, such as an LED snowflake or star.

Dining and living areas

Chandeliers bring the perfect celebratory atmosphere. Hanging multiple chandeliers at different heights can create an enchanting appearance. Alternatively, use task lighting, such as directional downlights, to highlight a space where decorations are featured.

Festive options to hang over the dining table are a cluster of Celeste pendants in black and brass, or Kann 410 in a fun shade of green.

High-quality Christmas lights look great on any tree but you can also enhance a dining area with table decorations. Pillar and tealight candles add to the festive spirit.

Outdoor decor

We have said it before but we will say it again - fairy and festoon lights! Wrapping them around trees or hanging strands from branches can inspire a snowy, whimsical effect in your garden. Additionally, simple LED lights with positive messages are a fun way to get your guests in the mood to party.
