How to update your lighting

Lighting can truly transform the look and feel of a room. Whether it’s a well-placed lamp, atmospheric fairy lights or a statement lampshade, there’s a huge range of tweaks and changes you can easily make to give your space a refresh.

Fiona from the interior blog Fifi McGee chose to revamp her ceiling light with an on-trend copper pendant. With an easy kit from Dowsing & Reynolds, she was able to fit the geometric shade herself! The open style of the pendant is a nice change from your average lampshade and is a great modern touch.

Always remember to talk to an electrician before you start fiddling with electricity wires and, if you rent, run your plans past your landlord before you start making any changes. Although it may seem a little daunting, fitting a pendant is surprisingly easy and really ramps up a room’s style credentials.
