The latest goings-on at Cable & Cotton

Mantelpiece lights

Mantelpiece lights

One of the best ways to dress a mantelpiece is with lighting (and yes, of course we're biased). Below are a few tips to achieve a stylish look effortlessly with Cable and Cotton string lights. Colour Mixing muted statement colours with neutral tones is usually a safe bet in a living room, like the combination of blues pictured above. You can easily achieve the same effect with other colours like orange and green to suit your personal style. Cable tidy If you're worried about the cable being on display over the mantelpiece, make it fade into the background with some carefully chosen accessories. Stylish candles, glass jars and ornaments break the line of the cable and look fabulous. Measure and match Make sure you measure the width of the mantelpiece so you know the length required for your string lights. You don't want to end up with an excess and equally you don't want it to look sparse because you don't have enough. Perfect glow If you're unsure about the best colour combination have a look at our beautiful range of pre-selected colour sets. You can also create your own custom colour combinations by mixing and matching with our great online design tool.
