There is so much to love about the holidays, but not surprisingly here at Sculpta Lights, where our lighting designs and decorative light fixtures are inspired by contemporary sculptures and reflect cultural elements from around the globe, we are definitely partial to the glowing possibilities inherent in every single strand of holiday lights!

Can you blame us? Seriously, who doesn’t smile when the lights are plugged in on the tree? But there’s no reason to limit the use of those lovely – and affordable little lights – to the tree. Holiday lights – or fairy lights as they are now also called – can be used throughout your home during the holidays and all year long.

Lighting Design Projects with Holiday Lights

You can use the holiday lights you pick up at corner drugstore, the big box store or the home store to make a stylish and unique centerpiece for your holiday entertaining – whether the holiday you’re celebrating happens to be Christmas, Hanukah or the Fourth of July!  Just fill various glass containers with small strings of battery-operated lights. Get creative – you might have some mason jars or leftover jars from spaghetti sauce in your cupboard that would look lovely paired with a favorite vase or head to the thrift store and see what fun shapes you can find. You can also run fairy lights down the center of the table, like a runner.

The folks at Country Living rounded up some other fun DIY ideas for decorating with lights that have been freed from the tree, including:

There are two wonderful ways to brighten up a room that might feel a bit blah, whether it’s a living room, kitchen, dining room, bedroom or bath – lighting and color. Interior lighting and color can both make a statement, add focus and infuse a space with personality.

One of the most interesting colors to emerge as a popular choice in interior design has been Millennial Pink. “Millennial Pink can seem like a daunting color to incorporate in to your home but using just the right amount or pairing it with some smart color options can really let it do its thing and make a room shine,” says HouseTipster.

If you search for images of Millennial Pink, chances are you’ll see pictures of a variety of different shades of pink. “The tricky thing about Millennial Pink is that it’s also notoriously difficult to identify. While it appears some bloggers, designers, and color enthusiasts use the name Millennial Pink as a sort of catch-all for anything that roughly falls between bubblegum pink to rose quartz, Millennial Pink is its own entity, hard to classify as it may be.”

Millennial Pink Lighting

Perhaps the most intriguing thing about Millennial Pink is that it is a neutral. So, if you’re thinking it might be something Barbie would wear, think again! Millennial Pink is a sophisticated shade of pink. In searching for a definition, Shutterstock says terms like “peachy-salmon, rose gold, rose quartz, pale dogwood” can all be considered correct.

“Millennial Pink can seem like a daunting color to incorporate in to your home,” the pros at HomeTipster admit, but don’t let that stop you. The key to decorating with Millennial Pink, they say, is “using just the right amount or pairing it with some smart color options can really let it do its thing and make a room shine.”
