MSH partnership, all words are my own:
Everyone has a ‘thing’ when it comes to the home, don’t you think? For some it’s chairs, for others it might be rugs, or smaller items such as books, art and plants. What’s yours? I love all these pieces, but for me, it has to be lighting! I love the way it can be used to create an atmosphere. I appreciate how it’s vital for practical tasks such as cooking or reading. And I’m inspired by the way it can be used to highlight the things you love – and hide the things you don’t! You also can never really have enough lighting in a home (especially in wintertime), so I’m always on the lookout for something new.
New lighting at the Cottage
In Scandinavia, people love to place lighting in the window since it gives off a warm and inviting feel – which is why I chose this position over the sink. But I could also see it hanging in the corner of a room, or next to a sofa (I have a feeling this one might get moved around quite a lot!). But for now, there’ll be a lovely light shining from our cottage kitchen window!
New Lighting in our Home Hallway
I was pleasantly surprised by the weight (it’s quite substantial which makes it feel really high quality!). I also love the cable – which is why I decided to hang it this way using a hook – some cables are designed to shine!
It has a really cosy feel to it when switched on (especially if you use a dimmer switch like I have). Placed next to a mirror, the reflection immediately doubles the light source too, which brightens up this little corner of our home after dark!
Next step… the hallway tiles – but that’s a subject for another day!
For now, we’ll be enjoying the fact that we can actually see something when we arrive home or about to leave!
