Cable & Cotton sell the most beautiful string lights – you can choose from a number of pre-selected colour ways or make up your own combination.
I spent quite a while browsing the website. Initially I struggled to decide which room I wanted the lights for so that was obviously the first big decision – I liked the idea of them being in the bedroom providing a soft warm glow but in reality we don’t get to spend much time relaxing in there so they’d just go to waste. In the end I decided they’d make a lovely addition to the new playroom we are having built later this year. I like the idea of them perhaps being laid across the top of the shelving unit we are going to get for toy storage or perhaps hanging in a cosy reading corner.
Much as I like the idea of the “pick and mix” I decided that I’d go with the experts on this one and choose a pre-selected combination. There are so many stunning options but as I wanted the lights for the playroom I thought I’d go for bright and cheerful so chose the Turkish Delight combination, described on the website as a “fusion of Violet, Bright Orange, Ruby Red, Sunflower Yellow and Fuchsia Pink for those who are after a sweet treat”.
Even in the packaging before you do anything with them they look flipping gorgeous so I knew I’d made the right choice.
I’m absolutely thrilled with my light string – it’s just SO pretty! It’s really difficult to get a photograph of them lit which actually does them justice. Of course our playroom is not yet built so I can’t show you them in their new home but I tried them out in a few different places this afternoon – my favourite being in a fish bowl style vase.
I cannot wait to be able to display them properly when the extension is complete later this year! I think I could be quite tempted to invest in one of the big lamps for our bedroom too!
