The ambient lighting that string lights provide has crept its way out of Christmas and into our lives throughout the year - and for good reason! The sparkling lights are the perfect solution to brighten up indoor spaces and add some romance or spark to an event. Here are 7 tips to get you inspired to use string lights for every occasion you can think of.
1 - Cozy warm light in the bedroom
Warm lighting is scientifically proven to help you wind down at the end of the night, whereas cool blue light helps you feel motivated during the day. We love the way these lights are draped over the bed to provide just enough light to climb in, get cozy, and wind down after a long day before turning out the lights.
2 - Celebrate Spring
Illuminate your blossoming trees to celebrate the slow return of longer days and warmer temperatures. Our microlights are perfect for illuminating your more delicate features without damaging emerging blossoms, leaves or delicate branches. They look absolutely magical wrapped around small shrubs and trees.
3 - Highlight a feature of your garden
Do you have a prominent tree, arbor, or water feature in your garden? Add some sparkle with a set of 5mm mini-lights or microlights . Permanent fire flies in your back yard!
4 - Slumber parties
No matter your age, slumber parties never get old. Whether you’re setting up a party for your kid, or having friends over for a movie or game night, make everyone feel right at home with a cozy setup like this one!
5 - Pillow forts
Surprise your kids, friends, or a loved one with a cozy pillow fort for a movie night. Throw together every pillow in your house, prop up a sheet on a broom handle, dig out your Christmas lights and add some ambiance. Perfect for a cozy bedtime story or a movie night!
