The trees are adorned with rich, coppery tones and there’s a chill in the air that catches you unexpectedly. The nights draw in and the mornings become darker. We retreat into our homes, relishing the cozy atmosphere that is heightened by the damp, cold and windy weather outside.
And what more wonderful way to welcome the new season than with a tiny interior update? Changing the lighting in your home throughout the colder months will magnify the warmth, making a place that you can not wait to get back to. This ’October’ 2019, take ’inspiration’ from our cozy lighting ideas also modify your home into the latest cold‐weather retreat.
SHINE A ’SPOTLIGHT’
Spotlight lamps are ideal for creating single pools of light within a room. Love to read? Create your own cozy nook with your favorite char, a blanket, and a spotlight floor lamp. You’ll be able to get lost in your favorite novel without distracting those around you with harsh light that fills up the entire room. Spotlights can also be used to highlight certain spaces or a particular piece of furniture that you love. If you have a favorite area in your home, make it a focal point with a spotlight. This could be in the form of a floor, ceiling or wall light, depending on the space.
MAKE A ’MEAL’ OF IT
It’s cold, wet and windy outside. Naturally, you’re staying home. This season, instead of canceling plans when the weather turns, bring the plans home. Make the most of a rainy evening by hosting friends and family at your own private dinner party. And the perfect way to highlight the main event is with low-level pendant lamps over the dining table. Whether you match three pendant lamps, invest in a single large statement piece or prefer to mix and match with smaller designs, it creates a welcoming atmosphere that’s perfect for both intimate dinners and large gatherings. Plus, no one has to get the bill at the end of the night.
A ’GOLDEN’ GLOW
Metallic tones are autumnal interiors’ best friend. Gold, brass & bronze. These rich and opulent colors reflect the signature orange hues of the falling leaves outside and saturate your space with a warming glow. Metallic lighting has been brought to the forefront of interior design thanks to the industrial trend. This means there’s plenty of inspiration to be found, so explore your options and discover a look to suit your own home. Whether it’s a statement copper pendant in the hallway, a reclaimed golden lamp in the living room or a pair of copper wall sconces in your bedroom.
TAKE IT ’OUTSIDE’
Just because we’ve waved goodbye to summer, it doesn’t mean we have to neglect our outdoor spaces. Make the most of your garden with vintage-inspired festoon lighting and oversized lanterns on the patio. Get festive with fairy lights on trees and light your pathway with solar lights. When you add a fire pit, a mug of coffee and heavy-weight blankets into the mix, you’ll fall in love with autumnal evenings all over again.
DIM THE ’LIGHTS’
Between your seasonal home updates, don’t underestimate the importance of a dimmer switch. The right lighting can make or break a room. A dimmer switch gives you the opportunity to change the ambiance from bright and busy to soft and calm, depending on your mood.
