The lighting in a room can be the making if breaking of a home. Too white, and you face the unmistakable clinical vibe of a hospital ward. Too warm toned and your senses will ooze into a permanent honey slumbered state. God forbid you are drawn to red lightbulbs all year round, in which case you may want to consider packing up and moving to the Red Light District.
Heck, who am I to judge 💃🏻😈💁🏻♀️
It's time to turn on all the lights 💡
Not only because we are slap bang in the middle of Jack Frosts wintry clutches... where the sun doesn't make it's grand appearance until a fashionably late hour of the day. But also because of the grey cloud looming over us all... lockdown.
Here are a selection of unusual, quirky, happy lights to bring a bit of brightness to seemingly mundane and dull days. Long live the light!
