Glow up! Cool outdoor lighting we love
With warmer weather (hopefully) on the horizon, we're deep in planning for al fresco drinks and late-night parties on the patio. Light 'em up with these stylish garden picks.
Having a ball
Set the mood with these genius globe lights – they’re colour-changing, rechargeable AND come with a variety of settings (including a flickering candle mode – romantic). Instant party decor sorted.
These stylish solar powered beauties from No. 14 Ampthill in Beds come in sofr muted shades to blend in with the outdoors and provide up to six hours of warm mood lighting for al fresco evenings.
Hello, Ibiza cocktail lounge vibes! We love a multi-functional piece, and these light-up planters are perfect for giving your patio a little extra zhush. There’s a dimmer, colour rotation and even a strobe function for full-on rave vibes.
Not got a green thumb? Fake your florals with these amazing fennel lights from Sparkle Lighting, just over the border in Bucks – they can run off batteries or solar power (if the British weather is playing ball, obvs), and they automatically turn on at dusk for six hours of pretty glow.
These cool Edison bulbs from The Worm That Turned in Nottingham are just the thing to give your garden a little industrial edge – just pop ’em under a parasol or pergoda and you’ve got the perfect lighting for your evening Aperol Spritz.
It might look like something you’d see at the Tate Modern, but this statuesque piece is actually a clever water drop light. Standing at 82cm tall, it’s ideal for making a statement in your garden – why not get two for either side of your doors to create a grand entrance?
On the go
How cute is this Ara To Go lamp from Nordlux? It’s fully portable, so you can move it around your table, garden or decking as you see fit (great for doing a little reading – or, er, drinking – by dusk).
Bare bulbs not your thing? This string of festoon lights from Cox & Cox comes with super sleek, smoke grey fluted shades, which means they look equally great inside as out. We love a bit of versatility at Muddy.
