Cue the Mood Lighting

Beyond lighting your fireplace as the cool of winter approaches, mood lighting is completely under-used. Many of us, due to our busy lifestyles and the little personal time we allocate ourselves, tend to work huge hours, and on return to the abode, fall into bed.

Perhaps you’re working on the weekend with your halogen lights on, Ugh. At least get yourself a glass of whiskey and some cool tunes.

Now, if you don’t have a fireplace, a great way to bring this feeling of tranquility in, is to group 5 or more candles of different heights together on a cool wooden or lacquered tray on your coffee table. This creates an inviting glow that is both welcoming and really gives the next best thing to a real fireplace.

And trust me when I say lighting one of these selected candles (below) not only enhance your brain waves into Alpha signals – the ones when you’re more creative and not so busy busy; it is also hugely complimentary when you’re sharing some time with your lover.

Here at MSP we’re guilty of working big hours, and at night, it’s catch up time for articles, food, wine and bed. So where’s the time for a little conversation? So, dim the lights, stretch out on your lounge, and have one!
