Warmth and Light in December

December is finally here! While this month brings joy and lots of holiday spirit, it comes with a price: wet, cold, gloomy weather. Decorate the inside of your home to create a warm and inviting environment. Lanterns, string lights and candles will help you forget the darkness outside.

Candles, fairy lights and a roaring fire can do wonders to boost light on short, dark days and (even more important) bolster the spirits. So pour yourself a mug of hot cocoa and get cozy around the fire. Here are 9 ideas for boosting light and creating a magical ambience around the house.
