The clocks went back this weekend, bringing an official end to British summertime.

As the nights get darker, and winter arrives, great lighting becomes even more essential. Plus, there’s nothing better than getting home on a dark winter’s evening and turning on the lights to give your home a warm and cosy glow.

From ceiling lights to lamps, lighting plays a big part in our home during the autumn and winter months, so why not make a statement with the styles you choose?

Here are six of our favourite lighting styles that will add wow factor to your home this autumn.

Modern Metallic Lighting

Metallic Lighting | Barker and Stonehouse

Metallics are a huge trend in homeware this season, and lighting is no different. A shimmering metallic shade or table lamp will add instant luxe to your living room, dining room or bedroom.

Copper was the hottest metallic shade of the summer and continues to be a popular choice, but it is now being rivaled by classic gold and brass tones. To keep the look up to date, choose modern, minimalist styles such as the Sawley Table Lamp and the Antique Brass Pendant Light.

Beautiful Bamboo Shades

Nautical-Inspired Pendants
