The weather has been changing so quickly here in Munich and I’m starting to be in an Fall mood. With this season change, there is a lot less light in our home and you can already notice that it gets dark so much sooner than it used to. There is something very cozy about the start of Fall as well and I like to embrace it by making small changes to our home.
When there is a lack of natural light, you have to take advantage of that opportunity and add some beautiful lamps to the interior. Therefor I was very happy to team up with Nest to make our living room ready for Fall (and Winter, but that’s still a little while). I think lamps can change the entire feeling of a room and create a cozy atmosphere adjusted towards the activities you perform. I often work late in the evenings and rather then sitting in my office, I prefer to place myself on the little desk in the living room with a cup of tea. The Bellevue AJ8 table lamp fits perfectly there and can be directed to what I’m doing. It’s a great task lamp that can beam light into any direction I want while I’m drawing, or give an overall glow to my workplace. Lamps have to be functional and easy to use, but it’s also very important that the object itself looks great in a room even when it’s off. The mixture of satin polished brass and the matt black powder coated steel looks amazing while the lamp isn’t in use during the day.
Other than task lighting in a living room, it’s important that you can create a cozy atmosphere as well. I’ve placed the Muuto Control table lamp in our window sill and this piece gives a soft glow to our couch area. The black lamp fits perfectly on the marble there and I like the iconic bulb and big dial with which you can dim the light. To make a cozy setting complete candle light is of course very important too and I almost can’t live without it when the weather is changing so abruptly like it has. The Skandinavisk Ro candle (RO translates in tranquility) smells amazing and is always on our coffee table. When the weather will get even colder, I will make sure to add more candles to create an even cosier look.
All these kinds of different lights combined with the ambient lighting of the ceiling pendant are composed in the perfect lighting setting that works for us at night, during a https://www.nest.co.uk/product/skandinavisk-ro-tranquility-scented-candlerainy day or when the sun just got down. I love that we can adjust the setting to what we are doing and to how much natural light there is available.
