A change in lighting can be just what you need to create a calming environment that's perfect for spending super relaxed, winter evenings. 

Cloud like in its design, the Krusning Pendant Lamp Shade evokes all kinds of zen vibes and would make an understated statement in a space with neutral tones. And for just £10, we don't think you can go wrong with this one.

2. Channel the Scandi Christmas vibe

Christmas is less than two months away, which we think gives us enough of an excuse to start at least slightly preparing for the festivities. And – in our opinion – nothing says Scandi Christmas more than these Strala Lamp Shades

We love the idea of hanging them in a window – you'll be able to enjoy them from the inside and they'll make your home feel extra welcoming for guests.

3. Use lighting to inject colour into your home

If you're a little colour phobic – we're looking at you, lovers of the white and grey interior – lighting can be a great solution for incorporating it, subtly, into your home.

This Tokabo Table Lamp is a great example, as its gorgeous blue glass will flood your space with a subtle glow that promises not to overwhelm the space. Plus, blue is guaranteed to tone well with more neutral shades. And for just £8, you really can't go wrong.

4. Add a boho feel to your home

Perfect for adding an unfitted, boho feel to your room, the Sjuttiofem Pendant Lamp Shade has reached cult status amongst Ikea lovers. And its easy to see why. Its timeless design means it will work with almost any space and it costs just £10. Brilliant.

5. Strip back your lighting for an industrial feel

Industrial lighting has been everywhere over the past couple of years. And often with a pretty hefty price tag. 

But that no longer has to be the case, particularly as Ikea have now launched the Megagram Table Lamp which has a super industrial and very vintage feel that (frankly) we can't get enough of. Oh, and did we mention it costs just £10?
