Decorating with fairy lights

The days are drawing in, and the lights are going on earlier and earlier in the day. To me, fairy lights are for life, not just for Christmas and in our house our string lights are up all year round. We have them strung up around the kitchen window, and on the shelving unit in the living room and I use them as an extra layer of lighting to add warmth and fun to the spaces.

There are so many creative ways to use string lights around the home – they work in every room in the house and are a quick and easy way to add impact to a dull corner. Check out these clever light garland ideas – I’ve been lusting over hollywood light letters for ages, so I’m definitely going to be trying the DIY illuminated monogram very soon..

    I am SO nabbing that house fairy light around the bed idea. I have lots of string lights in storage and can’t wait to get them out again once we’re properly settled. Itching to get the lights up all over the place!
