Strung by the Fire Ambient twinkle lights that work all year long. / by Kathleen Nalley
f you love the dreamlike ambiance created by twinkle lights—the ethereal glow, the magical half-light, the wonder and interplay of light and its tiny shadows—chances are this illumination doesn’t just grace your home at the holidays. Call me crazy: I keep a strand (or three) of clear lights in my living room (anchored just below the ceiling) so I can enjoy the glow year-round. In their infinite wisdom, lighting manufacturers realized that we are not alone in our love of this lighting, and they have created beautiful, functional lighting solutions to mimic the effect, so you don’t have to resort to strung holiday lights past the new year. Most of these fixtures feature glass, crystals, and/or metal whose reflection achieves that same prismatic effect of holiday lights. In addition to their ambiance, these lighting options are high-end (no gnarly green plastic strands!), attractive, permanent, and perhaps most importantly, extremely energy efficient. Most use either G9, G10, or similar LED bulbs, which are smaller in size, cast a certain amount of diffused light, and offer maximum energy efficiency. Additionally, the bulbs are easily replaceable, long lasting, often dimmable and programmable. And if that’s not enough to convince you to twinkle all the time, these lighting fixtures come in a variety of shapes and styles to suit every personality and function. Who says you can’t capture the magic of the holiday season year-round?
