The light in your home is one of the most important things you have to think about. I live in a 400 year old cottage with low beamed ceilings and deep set windows so light is all important to me. The choices that are now available to us all are truly mind blowing. This industrial rise and fall lamp is perfect over a workspace.
This ceiling light with an extra long cord is quirky yet beautifully functional as it needs no wiring, just trail the wire and plug in.
This lamp shade from Ikea is so easy copy with your own choice of fabric and trimmings.
I just love these Jeeves Wall Lights, not only humorous but the light cast down is stunning due to the inner being finished in gold.
This clever lamp appears to be floating but is held up by a rigid cable.
This Chandelier Street Lamp makes me wish this was possible to have these everywhere. How lovely would that be?
Bring a little bit of the Sistine Chapel ceiling into your home with this fabulous ceiling light.
Even though the ceilings are really low in my cottage, I still found a corner to hang my favourite chandelier.
My ceramic rise and fall light sits over my breakfast bar and beams down on a bowl of antique fruit from an old Parisian charcuterie.
I love to lie in bed and look at my vintage birdcage chandelier before I go to sleep.
I even have lights between the double skin of my bath. They have an automatic dimmer so the light fades in and out whilst I am relaxing.
The sky is the limit with lighting – with so many choices there’s bound to be something to suit your home. Give your rooms an injection of personality with a bowler hat or a classic touch with a rise and fall lamp – the possibilities are endless…
