A home without fairy lights is a house fit only for Scrooge. There’s nothing like the warm yellow glow of tiny twinkly lights to get those festive feelings going. In fact, we’ve known houses that, for the month of December, function in a fairy light haze – no normal lamp or light will be turned on! This year, Habitat has gone to town on the Christmas lighting. Bulbs in white, yellow, red and green; entwined with baubles, sequins and beads; arranged as trees, or simple and timeless strings, no surface will be left lacking sparkle this Christmas! Here is our definitive guide to Christmas lighting.
For the dining table
Who said lights should only be relegated to the tree? Our Orbit lights would look fantastic pooled in a glass bowl to make a striking centrepiece for the dining table.
For the mantelpiece
The mistletoe-like beaded strands on Bea would dress up any mantelpiece for the festive season.
For the tree
For small spaces
For the garden
For the kids
In the window
No disco Santas or faux flashing icicles here, thank you very much. Put Natale on your windowsill for a very chic Christmas.
In the hallway
Cosmic is an oversized bauble with sparkling lights contained inside. Hang in clusters for maximum effect.
For the modernist
A contemporary alternative to the traditional tree, Daphne would make a striking statement.
