Brighten up your home as the nights draw in

It’s finally happened the clocks have gone back and autumn is officially upon us but don’t be disheartened by the longer evenings. We’ve got some great lighting suggestions to brighten up your home.

Having the right indoor lighting can turn a house into a home. Table lamps are perfect for providing different levels of light.

Most of us have a favourite place to sit and a standing lamp can offer the perfect lighting for reading without flooding a room with light.

A free standing tripod light is ideal for lighting up a gloomy corner and offers versatility.  Choosing a shade for a light is half the challenge. We’ve selected a neutral textured linen lampshade to show off the natural mango wood of the Obasi Tripod light above but a simple filament bulb can offer a more urban look.

Create an ambient mood by hanging a pendant  light low over a dining or kitchen table.

The Deevika wire light offers an industrial feel but to create a more country kitchen take a look at the Shimla pendant  Lighting can make your house appear bigger, fresher and decidedly more chic, as well as add value. A favourite interiors tip is to light up the best features in the room such as an old fire place or inglenook.

Add interest by choosing unique lamps with beautiful detail (such as the Kangri lamp above). The exquisite Pillar lamps definitely tick the unique box, each one is hand made from a reclaimed beautifully carved pillar.

Once you have created the perfect lighting for your home, all you need to do is light a fire and settle in for a cosy winter’s evening. To see our entire lighting collection take a look  here.
