As winter slowly creeps in, making our nights darker and our houses (and minds) gloomier, it’s important to fill your home and office spaces with as much light as possible. The right lights can improve your mood, make you more productive and leave you feeling warm and cosy with a soft glowing bulb, or wide awake with a bright white one.
Lights aren’t just nice-to-have afterthoughts when it comes to designing happy, cosy, winter-friendly interiors; a good set of lights can really bring a room to life, adding some softness and sparkle to it and not to mention cheering you up a bit when everything seems a bit doom and gloom in the depths of winter.
We’ve found a selection of beautiful and tech-smart light sets to inspire you:
1. Notti smart light, Kickstarter
This app-controlled light is aesthetically lovely and has been combined with smart technology. You can set it to turn on as you wake up, pulsate in different colours to music, and provide email, app and social media notifications. You can also select your favourite shades from a vast colour palette to suit every moon.
The creators of Notti have already easily reached their Kickstarter goal, with pledges exceeding the required $5,000 mark by almost $35,000 – so you can safely expect to see it delivered in 2015.
