So, you’ve seen gorgeous festoon imagery ALL over your Instagram and social media feeds this summer, but you’re not exactly sure where to start? Well you’re in luck! We’ve put together this “How To: Styling Festoons” guide to try and cover every possible option; from indoor to outdoor and summer to Christmas, to show you just how versatile these lights are and to help you figure out exactly where you’re going to put them in your home!
Festoons are a popular choice for weddings and events, and more recently in our homes and gardens to add light and character. Whether you’re throwing a party or want to add a permanent touch of something special to your space, finding the perfect spot for your festoons can seem daunting. So let’s start with the most popular use…
If adding festoons outdoors isn’t your thing, or you’re already fully festooned-out in your outdoor space, then why not add some indoors? Festoons are the perfect mix between vintage and modern and a quick and easy way to add character to any room. Top tip: don’t be afraid of adding colour – funky, multi-colour festoons are the perfect addition to a children’s bedroom, or to add a splash of colour to your kitchen.
Christmas is a perfect time for festoons, and becoming a lot more popular than traditional string lights. They can be adorned from tree branches indoor or outdoor, strung across housing fascias or as an added twinkling element to a Christmas garden display! Top tip: consider an interchangeable belts and bulbs system so that, in the summer months, you could have warm white cosy tones and swap them out to crisp, frosty white or multi-colour bulbs for Christmas time.
Just in case you hadn’t already seen enough festoons (yeah, like that’s a real thing!), we thought we’d throw in just a couple more of our favourite images below:
