Month: November 2016

No electrician required

So we’re putting up the fairy lights this month and thinking about bringing light to these dark, gloomy evenings.  Starting with the simplest touches – candles are one of our favourite things.

Whether it’s a tea light or taper, candelabra or church candle there’s something about the flickering glow that feels immediately comforting and creates a special atmosphere within the room.  We love some of the winter-scented options from Neom and White Company, as well as simple supermarket vanilla tea lights – a budget option we never tire of.

A retrospective of favourite lights

With the clocks going back, we’re focussing some attention this month on lighting, so here’s a little peek at some of Bess’s favourites from rooms she has designed in the last few years:

A favourite from a room design completed in 2014.  Classic style will always endure.

I have a special fondness for this look – two lights, different sizes, different heights, as a focal point over a dining table.

They’re saying copper is over, but I still love the shiny copper with black on of this wall light I used on a staircase for a client last year.

And finally, these cage lights dim beautifully against the rich dark walls of the Cinema Auditorium.
