Rainbow Drop Lights From Cable & Cotton : Review

Rainbow Drop Lights From Cable & Cotton : Review

I have recently been introduced to Cable & Cotton who sell these beautiful hand crafted fairy lights.

{How sweet are these lights!?!}

A beautiful and stylish way to add colour to any room. I was asked if I would like try out some of the lights to review and share my thoughts. Now which colours to pick? For which room in the house?

 Tough choice as these would look great in any room….

Checking my lights all work before fitting the shades….

Arr perfect timing to pick some colours to match my kitchen as I have just finished decorating. My kitchen has had a revamp, fresh wallpaper, a lick of paint, my units upcycled. With a new table and shelves for a brand new look at Christmas. Some multi coloured lights for the kitchen would be perfect!

 I popped over to their website to take a look at the colour range they sell. They sell 11 pre selected colour sets to choose from which are a beautiful selection of colours. {I could see all of these somewhere in my home}.  You can also choose your own colours, so if you want just one colour or to add as many colours as you would like. It is all possible.

I picked out the Rainbow drops from the pre selected colours as I knew these would be perfect to go in my kitchen, especially as I have gone for an outdoors inside look. Turns out these are their most popular ones too! They are available in sets of 20,35 or 50 lights.

The lights arrived well packaged inside a sturdy box covered in bubble wrap. I received the 20 Rainbow  light set and there was a 4 of each, of the different colour shades inside {Violet, Turquoise, Pure White, Anais Green and Raspberry Red}. Loving the see through cable and plug on them. You can then set them up how ever you like creating them into your very own style. They lights come with 2 spare bulbs and instructions how to set up. 

The shades are very fragile and I found putting the first one on tricky as I was trying not to break them. It did get easier after that. I did think at first I was cracking the shades when putting them on but the realised after reading the instruction again that this cut is normal so it gives movement for the lights to fit in. Once you have designed your lights and are happy with the colour arrangement you simply pull the two cables apart to secure the lights in position. All ready for putting in your favourite place. They are on top of my shelves now, maybe in the middle my table in December!

They also sell replacement cables, shades and bulbs for your fairy lights too.

 They look beautiful all set up and shining in my kitchen, they look so pretty and make a good focal point in any room. They would make a perfect gift for someone…

These get my ‘A beautiful gift for Christmas badge’

    These are hugely up my street. I love our living room but I think it's a bit neutral; I think these would add a pop of colour.x#triedtested

      Thanks Beth, sometime just a little pop of colour makes all the difference 🙂
