1. @hakauuka: We’d be okay doing a room swap with this cozy setup any day of the week.

2. @gozdee81: Glam up your vanity with a simple string of fairy lights.

3. @nicholeciotti: Give this style a go and you’ll never have to worry about making your way to your bed in the dark again. Hoping for a more subtle glow? Stick to one string instead of two!

4. @dottirdesigns: A little lighting goes a long way in this monochrome space.

5. @astoldbymichelle: This cascading layout is giving us all the feels. Use it in lieu of a headboard for a more striking look.

6. @thehillcrest: Dive into a pile of dreaminess. Okay, maybe this isn’t *totally* practical, but it sure looks pretty before bedtime comes around.

7. @redubabe: Capture that romantic, snowy vibe indoors year-round. (Just make sure Scooter is well-trained before letting him enjoy it too.)

8. @pinkmango72: Cool idea: Cage your lights for a more dramatic statement, then display them over your bed for a hygge-approved scene.

9. @nieoptymistka: Don’t ignore those awkward corners. A string of bulbs will instantly freshen them up!
