I always love happy mail days, where the posty pops you a parcel guaranteed to make you smile and start the day on the right foot. Well the other week as I fumbled around bleary eyed in search of my caffeine fix, the doorbell rang and an excited F hurried me towards the door, with my pj's askew and hair gone wild, much to the amusement of our regular postman who made some reference to coffee as I attempted a half smile/squinted eye acknowledgement of my delivery.
F always goes crazy for parcels, I'm not sure whether it the whole box and kids combo but he loves them. Skipping around my legs as I try not to pierce myself with the scissors, I opened the box to find my Cable & Cotton Lights. More lights you say, surely not? Yes my name is Lori and I am a light addict. It was only an hour ago that I was being dissuaded from purchasing a fifth light for the lounge, because surely everyone needs a copper architectural floor light right?
Now that the autumn equinox has passed signifying the end to those late summer days, I've found myself feeling the need to create a snug place to rest my head. There is something so cosy about small lights strung up and softly glowing that gives your room the magic you felt as a child. Every Christmas adults and kids alike go all gooey eyed for a few fairy lights dotted around the home and I'm no different. Now imagine you can have this bit of magic all year round and instead of those twinkling bare bulbs, you can have cool cotton spheres in a palette of your choosing to style your interior.
Cable & Cotton lights come in a range of colours making it easy to compliment your home, whether you choose from their pre-selected colour sets or go for your own colour combination, once selected they arrive in a rather cute box, with a string of lights ready for you to get busy with. These beautifully handcrafted orbs are ready for you to pop over your bulbs in any sequence you prefer and are ready in minutes to enhance your home.
I chose the Glow set with it's cool muted grey, cream and white tones, it matches perfectly with the scandi chic I love so much and as I have spent a bit of time on de-cluttering the bedroom I knew these would look perfect in their new home.
Using the picture rail, I draped the lights down the wall behind our bed and at night I can read in their warm glow, and when I fancy a change I will fill our disused fireplace with these beautiful lights to create a different atmosphere entirely.
