Get creative with decorative lights

How you choose to light your indoor space will have a huge impact on how you work, eat, socialise and unwind. Rather than using a central source of light in a room, multiple function decorative string lights can be strategically placed to light up a bedroom or set the mood for a dinner party. Add layers of lighting so the mood can be changed according to what you’re doing.

Filament bulb string lights

Hung alone, filament bulb string lights can have a minimalist, artsy look that will suit industrial spaces or city lofts. Larger bulbs give an urban, sophisticated feel to suit bigger spaces. These can also be left up all year round so if any unexpected guests come by, your place will be ready to entertain with no fuss.
