Once upon a time, lightbulbs were seen as a dull necessity. Something you needed to illuminate your way through life when it was dark. However nowadays, lightbulbs have become fashion accessories in their own right. A way to transform an interior space with ease, they are used to create mood, build atmosphere, highlight areas and utterly transform spaces.
The rise in LED light bulbs has made this infinitely easier, thanks to them being eco-friendly, staying cool to the touch and coming in an almost unprecedented range of colours, shapes, sizes and styles. If you’re looking to transform your home, or even office using LED light bulbs, take inspiration from these incredible, creative projects and go wild with LED bulbs.
