    Want A Quick Cheat To Make Your Room Look Good? Get These Bottle Lamps & Fairy Lights

    Shortcut

    Wasted is a two-years-old brand that does a variety of lights and coasters. From lights stuffed inside Old Monk bottles {hand-painted by her, of course} to string lights made from discarded egg crates, they believe in turning trash to treasure, just so lazy bums like us can brighten up our room with minimum effort and very little investment.

    Light Is Right

    Laugh at us all you want, but we’ve convinced ourselves that our {often} messy room just needs two things to look like a million bucks – lamps and our travel photos strung across the wall. Or at least, that’s what we gather from all the Pinterest boards or Instagram photos of all the cute cafes. So, we embarked on a mission to find the fairy lights and cosy lamps that that our room could really use and landed on Wasted’s Facebook page.

    Every kind of light here is a creatively upcycled wonder that’s as good for the environment as it is for your boring room. It was started by Devika who is an interior designer by profession, but had a short stint with Wizcraft in events. Some time into her job, she decided that neither of these were creatively satisfying for her. This is when she started painting empty alcohol bottles on the weekends. Slowly, when she found a lot of takers, she founded Wasted {a pun on getting wasted after a night of too much alcohol}.

    We dig the psychedelic bottle lamps as much as these glowing, rose fairy lights. She experiments with glass paints for a glossy look alongside using acrylic paints to create an opaque, day look that turns into a translucent beauty when the lights are switched on. In fact, Devika tells us that she has a team dedicated to making these LED lights in-house {none of those Chinese imports that bail on you in milliseconds}. 

    Our favourites? This teal lamp and this bottle that reminds us of Van Gogh’s famous masterpiece.

    So, We're Saying...

    Devika also customises the bottle lamps with pictures and quotes that make for perfect lil’ gifts {they come at INR 1,200}.

    The bottle lamps are priced around INR 950 while the string lights are for INR 550.
