5 Ways To Brighten Up The Bedroom With String Lights

Let your sleeping space glow!


Who said string lights should be reserved for Christmas displays only? Instead of spending a ton of money on expensive mood lighting, these twinkly lights can be a great alternative for setting the mood and adding warmth in your sleeping space. 

From sprucing up the headboard to building a makeshift art piece, we've rounded up five ways that may inspire you to experiment with this fairy dust-inspired staple:

Give your dressing nook an extra pop by wrapping string lights around the edge of a mirror. The additional light can also help you thoroughly check if your OOTD is on point.

If your work area is looking a little dim, consider lining the walls with yellow lights—try using pushpins to secure the wire around the perimeter to keep it from falling. This is also a great way to draw attention to a cornered display.

Take your wall typography to the next level by defining it with string lights. This way, you're able to highlight your art while bringing light into the space. Consider placing it near the entry to your boudoir to keep the vibe welcoming.

Minimalists can play with lights, too! Try hanging a single strand over a floor vignette for a high-end, artsy feel. Be strategic with hiding the plug to make it look extra sleek.

Give your dainty canopy a boost by incorporating string lights with sheer curtains. This is a smart way to trick the eye into thinking that the room has partitions without having to add walls.
