Creating Ambience with Lights

Lighting can make or break a space and we want to make sure you love the lighting in your home. You don’t have to be a home décor expert, but with some creativity and a few essentials to know, your space will be transformed in no time. Here are our top tips for creating the best ambience with lighting.

Make the most of natural light

First things first, natural lighting brings life to any space. Before investing in some lighting for your home, consider what you can work with. It's a classic tip but if you can position a mirror opposite a window, it will help to distribute the natural light that comes in, nicely.

Make a statement

Lighting can be a staple piece in itself. Consider an extravagant floor lamp to add character to your space or a glass or patterned light shade. Maybe a pop of colour, if the room has a lot of black or neutral accessories. It can be functional and a talking point.

Match lighting to your décor

As you change around and style your home décor, don’t forget the lighting! As colour palettes and statements change, consider adjusting your lighting to best fit your new vision. White lighting looks best with clean, minimal interiors and is great for rooms where a lot of 'tasks' are carried out, e.g. the kitchen; whereas warm lighting looks best with a rustic, neutral palette. Play around and see what works best for your home.

Get creative!

Lighting doesn’t always have to stand out, sometimes less is more. Experiment with a nice side table set-up – a lamp, a candle and stacked books add life to the little corner of your home. Try different tones and textures, shades and shapes and have fun with it!

Our lights are all battery operated which makes moving them around your home super easy. Changed your mind? No problem. Just pick it up and put it elsewhere. No fuss, no trouble finding a socket. Creating cosy corners in your room couldn't be easier.
