Making November Cosy

2016 autumn candle christmas cosy deisgner/maker gift ideas glow handmade Hebden Bridge interiors lamps lampshades light lighting made in the uk unique unusual winter

I know I don't have to tell you this, but it has just got very cold and very dark quite suddenly. I have to admit to having had a few gloomy mornings last week, but as the days go on I become more positive. This time of year has it's upsides too. The colours are magnificent, and we have been presented with an opportunity to spend more time at home with the people we love, recuperating, lighting the fire (or at least a candle!), cooking comforting meals and wrapping up in blankets. We get more time to reflect on the year so far, and as we slow down and take time out, new ideas and inspirations come forth.

It's a real joy to have been reopen now for a couple of months, and to be able to enthuse with people face-to-face about the things we have selected for the shop, created by dedicated designer/makers in Hebden Bridge, the rest of the UK and beyond. 

If you've visited, or ordered online and switched your new lamp on somewhere, or placed your new notebook neatly on your desk next to a pretty cup of coffee ;), I'd love to see your photographs and share them too. Please tag @radiancelighting on Instagram, or send me an email
