We hate to admit it…but summer is almost officially over. The dark nights are creeping in and pumpkins and fireworks are very quickly becoming the focus of conversations. But the good news is, Autumn is the time of year we get to cosy up our homes to enjoy these dark nights in. One great way to create a lovely, cosy room, is with lighting. So we’ve put together some great tips on creating some lovely Autumn lighting in your home.
Create a cosy reading corner
A great place to get comfy with a good book, a reading chair in the corner of the room with soft relaxing light is a great way to create a lovely, homely, cosy area. Using a double arm floor lamp with adjustable shades will create bright pools of light to suit your needs. Perfect if you’re not the only one who likes to snuggle up with a good book. Add a comfy throw and some hot chocolate for the perfect cosy corner.Choose a woven lamp shade
Saving space is always a bonus when decorating or reorganising a room. Fitting a low hanging pendant beside your bed rather than having a table lamp is a great way of creating lovely low, ambient lighting whilst saving space. Adding a soft, warm, pearlescent bulb and an intricate woven lamp shade will create a lovely relaxed feel whilst creating delicate patterns around the room for a lovely cosy atmosphere.Use down lighting
Using wall-mounted lighting is a great way to introduce soft light to dark areas of a room. Choosing a downward angled lamp that spills warm light beneath it will instantly add the cosy factor to any room.Table service
The living room isn’t the only room that can be cosy. The kitchen or dining room can be a lovely area for cosy family meals or get-togethers. Adjustable pendant lighting is a great way to define your eating space as they can be lowered as needed to provide a lovely focused warm glow.
