Festival Ready In No Time: 13 Fairy Lights To Bring Some Light To Your Room
A Leafy Vine That Shaines
Add a nature-themed vibe to your home with minimal effort using these vine string lights. Of course, while at night it serves its obvious purpose, during daytime it adds a fresh breath of greens to your space! Available in warm white light as a set of two (5 meters each), this one is battery powered, so you know what could keep you cozy in the event of a power cut.
Wish On Wish Balls
The fancy option of the lot, Wish Ball lights are a definite Instagram trend and we can see why after we spotted this number from Brand World. If you're a picture junkie or like making videos, this as a backdrop over pretty curtains or windows (like the image) will be sublime. They give out a beautiful effect that's hard to replicate otherwise. This runs on electricity and is bright enough to be a source of light by itself. As pictured, these work best when hung with a curtain, ideally by the window. Your only challenge might be to find a plug point close by.
Lotus Flower Wonders
These small, delicate daisies will cheer up whatever corner they're in. These string lights from Hamster London are around 36cm long, so not really meant to be hung in your room. But you can always make it a part of your mood board, cozy corner, be curled up in a bowl (the lights are battery-operated, so you don't have to worry about a plug point), or vase on your table or counter. This is truly one of those purchases that you may not need but definitely want, just cause. Hamster London has other options like this featuring rainbows and donuts among other things.
Romantic Rosy Dreams
If you're all about romance, you need roses, dreamer! In specific, these dreamy Rose Fairy Lights. We're in love with the peach coloured roses and the fact that they are made of foam (for that real, like-life feel) using energy-saving LED lights. Turn these on when you're planning an intimate night or a stay in bed dinner date and feel the mood change with these string lights around you. We highly recommend you buy both the white and peach options and create magic. Each string light connects to an adapter, and is 5 meters long.
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars
If you don't know where to begin or what to choose, pick the Star String Lights, please! It's one fail-proof choice that dazzles and impresses like no other. The illusion of a starry night is one check out away. Many brands do a variation of the star string lights because it's the most obvious, and this one by the June Shop is four meters long and lit up with the help of a two-pin plug, so you'll need electricity.
Lush Lily Bougainvilleas
Picture colourful Lilly Bougainvillea Petals (blue, green, yellow, orange, pink) crocheted in thread, hiding within them tiny pistils or bulbs. That is exactly what these handmade LED string lights from Samoolam are. They cut the list not for just being pretty, but for adding a splash of colour without changing the mood of the room. Available in five colours note that the delicate "petals" around each light are webbed for a unique diffusion of light and need to be handled gently. Plus, These also look great during the day when not lit. These lights are over eight meters long, so feel free to make a wall installation of them if you're inclined.
Delicate Divine Petals
These handmade LED Orange Petal String Lights add an overall delicate, whimsical feel to the room both look-wise and light-wise. These lights also have a pop of colour and crochet, that hold the petals together. Love! The petals are made with thread, and the lights are powered by rechargeable batteries, so they're going to last you a long time. Ideal to set up by your bed, or your 'hygge' corner, though not if you want an actual source of light to read we feel.
Rose Gold Diamonds
If your room's theme is minimal with a touch of class, these diamond string lights with a rose gold casing should fit right in! Exuding class and with just about enough metal to throw light in all the soft yet eye-catching ways, this string light by Chronos will work with 3xAA pencil batteries as well as with a USB power source. At two meters long, you can actually take this out for outdoor parties, evening picnics and the likes. Hang it by the bed, your vanity table, or window, as it'll look great during the day too.
Super Fly Butterflies
If these Butterfly LED Lights from Design Vesign Inc aren't the definition of chirpy spring, we don't know what else is! The butterflies themselves are made of metal, so even after the lights die out, you can use them as table or wall decor. Multipurpose and magical, we stan! You'll need a DC adapter to plug in this five-meter-long light, and we love the playfulness it adds to wherever it is. We feel it'll look pretty on the balcony, around some plants that don't have a heavy watering schedule if so.
Multi Colour Party Lights
If you're wondering why these lights from Home Centre look so similar, it's cause Will used them to communicate with his mother in Stranger Things (after which this style of string lights skyrocketed to popularity, with many takers still). While they don't flash to send out messages, they're great during the festive season thanks to the colourful bulbs. At 1.2 meters long, hang this battery-operated string ling by a window or door, light it up, and your room will scream "party vibes".
Lights For Full Year Christmas
Something about the warm glow of the tiny bulbs, the stars and houses on this light really brings up warm and fuzzy feels. It's heavily Christmas themed, but still looks pretty. The lights are powered by batteries and the cutouts you see are made of birch ply (keep away from moisture). This would make a sweet addition to a child's room, which will look great during the day or night.
Warm White and Waterproof!
While this light claims to be waterproof we won’t go overboard with it and put it in a swimming pool but our guess is that it can handle an occasional splash. It's five meters long so you can easily style it in your room. We love it because of the very soothing warm colour — not too white or yellow that ends in a headache.
LED Lighting Chain
Had to add this one because of the aesthetics! The black bulb holders add a very clean and minimal look and feel. It's the perfect light for outdoor parties that looks sturdy enough to last you more than one party. It's battery operated so there's no hassle to decorate according to the electricity socket. For indoors, we like these mini pompom lights.
