AMBIENT LIGHTING

I’m hoping for an Indian summer but even if my hopes don’t come true make sure you make the most the last of summer and the light evenings. This is a magical time to light all those t lights and lanterns and create an ambient mood.  We’ve tried and tested a number of t lights and lanterns at Nkuku, here are some of favourite mood setters. The intricate cut out pattern of our petal t lights is number one for casting pretty shadows.

Our embossed t lights enhance the candlelight and create a soft, gentle light . They come in pretty antique muted colour ways and look beautiful on a table, window sill or mantel piece.  Our glass t lights are hand made from recycled glass .

The beauty of our hanging t lights is that they can be strewn in branches and hung along pieces of cord and string, adding light to little corners and shimmering through tree leaves.

These elegant Evie t lights create quite a centre piece – their rustic silver finish makes the candlelight twinkle and subdues and softens the light creating a warm and intimate atmosphere.

Our Daya lanterns are perfect for casting pretty patterns and delicate shadows, adding interest to plain walls and offering a Moroccany feel.

These fantastic can lanterns have a punched star image that allows the candle light to shine through. Using candle light adds warmth and intimacy and can transform even the starkest of back drops into a characterful warm haven.
