Using lighting to create a Christmas feeling in your home

With the weather turning colder and the nights starting to draw in, the most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner. And, while the traditional Christmas tree will no doubt be making an appearance, lighting is also a great way of bringing a festive atmosphere to interiors, with modern designs offering a stylish way to add depth and warmth to an area. With this in mind, we’ve put together a few suggestions of how our Original BTC lights can help to create a Christmas feeling in your home this winter.


Copper Pendants

When styling your home for Christmas, it’s important to consider your theme and colour palate. Although the traditional colours of red and green remain popular, modern options like white and grey are becoming more common. Variations of the quintessential gold accent colours are also increasing in popularity, and shades of copper and rose gold are especially chic. For a modern, stylish alternative to a gold statement light, look no further than our Stanley Pendant. Hand-spun in Birmingham, these lights are available in brass, copper, or brass nickel plated. With the option to add a textured, hammered finish that causes the shade to twinkle in the light, Stanley Pendants are the perfect way to add a subtle festive feel to your interior. The kitchen in particular is often a focal point during the Christmas period. If you’re responsible for Christmas dinner this year, extend this festive feel through to your kitchen with our School Lights or Spun Pendants to accompany your Christmas morning preparations with warm, copper tones.


Globe Pendant

An elegant glass globe pendant, these lights will bring your Christmas party to life this year. Providing a glistening, illuminating feel to your interior, they are sure to be a talking point amongst your guests – and are particularly eye catching when arranged in a group. They are available in various glass finishes, including opal, anthracite, clear seedy or anthracite seedy. With an exposed squirrel cage light bulb adding contemporary style, the lights also feature a black and white cotton braid cable to complement the design.


Walter Collection

At this time of year, strings of fairy lights are a popular way to add a twinkly, cosy atmosphere to a room. For a clean, modern alternative, a light with a dimmer switch enables a room to be lit in different ways depending on the time of day or activity taking place. Our stylish Walter collection evokes memories of retro 1960s Christmas celebrations and includes both pendant and table lights. A dimmer switch means these lights can provide bright light over a dinner table, or bathe a room in golden warmth for evening drinks. With a striking combination of either satin brass or satin copper, and with opal or anthracite glass shades, these lights will provide the perfect atmospheric lighting for your home this Christmas.
