Christmas is also a light festival, both outside and inside. It’s the time of the year for you to stage your home like a Christmas wonderland. Are we exaggerating? Hardly! Of course, we’re not suggesting you transform your sleek interior into a carnival but rather that you craftily hang some string lights to draw attention to strategic points – along a shelf where you’ve placed your treasured belongings and favourite books, close to a window, and of course, around the table. Don’t hesitate to gather some lights above your buffet, or evoke the look of an old Guinguette (an outdoor restaurant with picnic tables) using single, long garlands of lights for a retro and very festive look.
