Pretty ways to use string lights after the Holidays

The Holidays are over but that doesn’t mean you can’t stretch the coziness that comes with Christmas. A tree might be a bit much, but a decorative string of lights works all year round. To inspire you, we’ve selected the most beautiful bulbs on the web. Not only do they add great charisma to a room, they’re a totally functional source of light too!

A few handy tips to make a string of lights part of your interior.
– Looking for lights online? Search for cotton ball lights or fairy lights to stay away from (often a bit cheesy) Christmas strings.
– Have a look at the (currently discounted!) Christmas section at your local warehouses. If you’re a Dutchie, definitely check out Sissy Boy, Hema or De Bijenkorf for a good selection of lights and garlands.
– Wrap your lights around a clothing rack, a mirror or a wooden ladder to add more shape and dynamic.
– Opt for yellow lights instead of white lights for a softer mood.
– Use washi tape to hang a string on your wall. Or tape tiny lights to your ceiling to emulate a starry night sky.

Let us know if you’re a big fan of little lights as well and how you use your light strings after the Holidays. Shine on!
