Home lighting & Decor: Cable & Cotton Review

 Cable & Cotton home decor lighting reviewI love any for of home lighting, from static fairy lights to the twinkling kind. So naturally I was excited to be chosen to review a gorgeous set of lights from Cable & Cotton. I had seen their products online and they looked amazing! I even enjoyed the purchase process too because Cable and Cotton allow you to choose from a wide range of lighting; regarding the length you’d like and the colours of your cotton lights too.

I chose the gorgeous ‘Glow‘ set of string lighting and I was very excited to get them hung up to add a little flare to our living room. 

 I’ll admit, I would expect them to arrive already assembled, but putting them together really took no time at all and you only need to give the string lighting a gentle push & twist into the holes provided and you were ready to get creative with your lights! Even if you made a little dent {I did, several times!} as you pushed the lights in, pulling them back against the hole fixed that problem right up!
My string home lighting set contains 20 lights and in 3 different colours: pale grey, ivory & oatmeal. This set that I received can be bought for £22.95 and I went for the Glow set as I adore the calming colour tones, plus on the website they look amazing when all plugged in & glowing. So that sold me completely!
Now, where to hang them? Remembering I have an 11mth old daughter who adores to pull and tug at everything possible, I was left with the option of hanging them somewhere up and out of her way. 
The iron cast tree art on our wall was a perfect place to hang them and I reckon it adds a certain amount of awesomeness to our current wall art. Don’t you think? It looks so pretty!
Cable & Cotton give you three options when you go to buy your home lighting. You can choose the 20 light option with a 140cm cable {which you can see above}, there is also a 35 light option with a 240cm string and then finally you can choose a 50 bulb option that is specific to their ‘pick your own‘ string lighting. 

The choice of colours cable & cotton have available fit the design of every home going, and for us they really do bring something unique to our front room. I love our cable & cotton lights, they really can go anywhere and add a creative sparkle to wherever they lay {or hang!} and I can see me buying more in the future as we start to decorate our home…finally! But for now we are so totally in love with our very own….Tree of light. 

You can find Cable & Cotton over on their Website, Facebook & Twitter
