After Christmas my house always looks extra dark, no twinkling lights on the tree to brighten the place, no beautiful strings of pretty lights illuminating the dark corners of the house. The dark evenings and the sudden change from light and festive to just normal and slightly drab do not help this, and somehow this adds to the gloom.
Unwilling to let the seeping melancholy overtake me, I got some LED branch lights from LED Hut with the intention of perking up a drab corner and perking me up too.
They arrived really well packaged. I opened the box and they were just ready to be used. They come with a small battery pack which uses 3x AA batteries (which were included), there is a small on/off switch, so you just switch them on and put them in a suitable vase or container. To switch off, just take the lights out and switch the battery pack off. Easy.
I chose these really pretty lights; ten LED branch lights which are inside decorative white mesh pods. They are on white branches which are made of metal so you can move and position them however you think best.
These work really well in my home which was (hastily) painted white when we moved in and has both modern Scandinavian (mainly Ikea) and traditional furniture. They suit the crisp contemporary whiteness and the cosy traditional look we also have going.
I’m quite in love with these lights and haven’t as yet decided where they will finally end up. At the moment they are in a vase on a bureau in the lounge, but I think they’d be lovely on the landing windowsill, in my office to pretty it up a little bit, or maybe even in the downstairs loo. I can see me getting a few more sets of these pretty LED branch lights.
These lovely LED branch lights give off a pleasing warm light, not bright enough to read by or do fine needlework under, but enough to brighten a gloomy corner. I like how the light shines out from the mesh, casting attractive patterns against the wall. There’s nothing I don’t like about them, even the price is reasonable, they’re just £11.99 from LED Hut, and much safer than the candles I normally burn to cheer the place up on a dark winters evening.
Note: I was sent these LED branch lights free of charge for review purposes, all images and opinions are my own.
