3 ways to light a window

15-Oct-2016
Magical. Festive. Sparkling. We think there’s just something charming about decorating windows with lights. So we’re passing along that warm and fuzzy feeling with three easy window decor ideas to light up your cosy nights!

1. CLASSIC CENTREPIECE. Take decorative staples and keep things simple. We put a STRÅLA tree-shaped LED candelabra front and center. Then we lined pine cones on the window sill and hung pomanders above. White textiles add to the traditional simplicity. Bonus, it smells as good as it looks!

2. NATURAL IMPACT. Make a statement in a big window with pops of nature. We threaded VINTER 2016 paper ribbon through the bamboo of SINNERLIG pendant lamp. Then we wrapped lights on a bendy branch and clustered paper decorations at the base. Warning, your tree may get jealous!

3. REMIX REBEL. Embrace the do-your-own-thing philosophy. We used SÄRDAL lighting chains to make a zig-zag pattern. Then we padded the window with sprigs of fir and added pine cone-shaped candles and our favourite Swedish horse. It’s a little bit festive and a lot of fun!
