November is the time of year when we start to notice the evenings drawing in and temperatures starting to drop. The clocks have gone back, we leave and return from the house in the dark and our evenings are littered with the sounds of fireworks outside. It’s no wonder we suddenly feel the need to find candles and fairy lights, seeking the warmth the sun can no longer provide. For those of us that don’t possess a log burning fire, finding new ways to light our homes and bring some warmth into our evenings can be a challenge. At Vinegar Hill we have a wide variety of candles and fairy lights available that will bring a cosy atmosphere into any room in your home. Using soft decorative lighting not only adds the illusion of warmth but also creates character and atmosphere, an effect that is hard to cultivate with just a ceiling lamp.
Candles are the ultimate classic way to incorporate light and warmth in a room. Whether it’s to bring tranquility to a bathroom, soothing light to the bedroom or sweet scents to the living room – you just can’t beat them. At Vinegar Hill we make sure we provide a wide selection of candles all year round for this very reason. However, now is the time of year when it feels like we need them the most to cheer our evenings and warm our homes. Our scented candles can be a unique way to add personality and set the mood, why not come and try something new this winter?
If you’re not great with matches and fire handling why not try some fairy lights around your house. Never let it be said that fairy lights are just for Christmas. They are a simple way of bringing beauty and ambiance to any room. Draping warm wire fairy lights over window sills, a hanging picture or a mirror can change a room in seconds – and without the need for nails! For a more detailed and personalised feature; drape the lights across a blank wall and peg some polaroids or small printed photographs in-between the lights. This is an ideal feature that can be changed and moved around as you feel like it. Images can be changed regularly or you can hang birthday and Christmas cards or some of your favourite quotes printed at home. Fairy lights also make a stunning table centrepiece if you place them in a beautiful glass vase or an attractive feature on a side table if placed in a glass bottle. With battery operated fairy lights now being widely available it allows you the flexibility to create portable light and atmosphere in any room.
We have many varieties of fairy lights (and candles) available in all our stores, pop in or view our selection online from the comfort of your sofa. We’d also love to see your home creations, just tag our Instagram or Facebook page with an image of what you’ve created.
