Fall back, Spring forward .............. the the only way I can remember that the clocks go back the end of this month (and not forward duh!)
I struggle with the end of the summer and it takes me a good month to accept that the colder months are on their way, until that is, I start to light the fire and realise that I can pop the little lights on around the house and burn some candles.
Hygge is a massive buzz word at the moment, everywhere I turn I seem to hear people referring to it. The Danes embrace the long dark winter months with "hygge" meaning coziness (as an attempt to scratch the surface of the word)
Lighting the house in the coming months becomes a really important part of embracing the greyer skies that lie ahead. So I've brought you a collection of lovely lighting that will bring a little Hygge into your homes.
I love these informal Z1 lamp shades by Ay Illuninate, creating a relaxed and carefree centrepiece to a scheme. They are a bit on the expensive side though £325 (cough) but we do a great "get the look" alternative at peastyle here for fraction of the cost.
Using task lighting is a great way of dimming the overall lighting in the room without compromising on being able to see your book, sketch book or glass of wine! These concrete and brass standard lamps are one of my favourite products in the peastyle shop at the moment
There are some fabulous bulbs out there now, I know! who'd have believed that the bulb would take centre stage! But it just works doesn't it? A bit like staring into an open fire, the old fashioned styled bulbs where the filament is a thing of beauty, can make a simple bulb holder into a great statement light. Shop cool lighting from peastyle shop here and enjoy some Hygge this winter.
The colder darker months aren't so bad after all!
