Star Light Styling Guide

Written by: Ellie Cox

Star lights are a must-have when decorating your home for Christmas!

Not only are they super seasonal, they're the perfect shining showpiece to introduce to your decor. There's a range of indoor and outdoor star lights to choose from, meaning they are versatile in their use. There are so many ways you can style them within your space and we're here to show you how! Whether you're looking to go all out with your decorations and lights this year or choose to opt for a more simplistic look, we have star lights to suit every taste.

Wintery Windows

Christmas window lights are perfect for adding sparkling silhouettes against the glass, which can be seen from the inside and out.

Star lights are our go-to for festive windows! They are bound to light up a smile on the faces of passers-by and also make your home super cosy indoors. Our Osby star lights are an elegant addition to windows, with their warm glow creating a delicate outline. They can simply be styled on their own or as a trio at differing heights, with a selection of candles on the window ledge below for an even cosier appearance. Curtain lights are a great way to fill larger windows, featuring numerous illuminated drops hanging vertically. Our star curtain lights add a little extra to the traditional simple curtain lights, with the star shapes adding to the detail. They are also a great choice for hanging from staircases, draping them from banisters to create a perfect Christmassy cascade of lights.

Radiant Roofs

Add a little sparkle as night falls...brightening up those drab roof edges has never been so simple!

The exterior of your home is just as important as your interior! Roof edges are a great place to display lights, running them along in a row and letting them sit pretty outside all season long. Our Osby star garland is ideal for completing your outdoor display and can also be styled indoors if you prefer! Each of the 6 stars on the garland has a diameter of 10cm and is lit by 15 warm white micro LEDs, which make them twinkle as the night draws in. Use gutter hooks to secure them in place, they are so simple to use and can be clipped easily to guttering - meaning you'll have your lights up in no time! To complete the look, position curtain lights in the windows from the inside and pop a candle or two on the window ledge, adding to the glow when looking from the outside in.

Mesmerising Mantels

Style your mantelpiece to perfection to instantly capture the attention of every person who enters the room!

Star lights look great sat as a main feature on the mantel, surrounded by festive foliage and candles for a seasonal arrangement. Wreaths and garlands will add colour to the room and uplift any mantel display. Our faux foliage features are super realistic, introducing a fresh feel to your space in seconds! They can also be easily stored away and reused for following Christmases, looking just as good the next time you use them. Votive candles are ideal for scattering around your mantel. Their compact size means they can be easily used to fill smaller gaps, however taper and pillar candles look just as good! Style various shaped and coloured candles for the full effect. Ivory, silver and gold are classic tones for Christmas, introducing a warming feel wherever they go in the room.

A Warm Welcome

Outdoor star lights will make your garden shine bright over the festive season!

Outside lights are perfect for spreading festive cheer within your neighbourhood. Designed to endure winter conditions, our outdoor Christmas lights are happy to be kept outside throughout the festive weeks. Position your lights outside the front of your home for a warm welcome, sitting them either side of your door, in your porch or on the front lawn. Our outdoor LED star light trio are so easy to style thanks to their 8m lead cables, meaning you're in easy reach of the plug socket. They suit every type of space and are a nice addition to patios as well as lawns. We also have star lights to hang on your door or from outside walls & windows. Pair them with a wreath or sit mini trees outside by your door, adding a garden lantern for an even more stylish look!
