3 ways to light a holiday window

13 November 2016

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

1. CLASSIC CENTREPIECE. Take holiday 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!    

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
