BOTTLED UP

What hap­pens when a home­maker and an in­te­rior de­signer re­alise they both love hand­crafted lights? A unique light­ing com­pany is born that bright­ens up your decor and does its bit for mother earth. Called Light It Up, it was started in 2017 by mother and daugh­ter duo, Meena and Nishtha Medi­ratta. Nishtha’s in­te­rior de­sign back­ground comes in handy while se­lect­ing the right colour and Meena looks af­ter the busi­ness side. The duo have shared their step-by-step guide to cre­at­ing bot­tle lights. You need A glass bot­tle, acrylic paints, a paint brush and a per­ma­nent marker. STEP 1 Take a glass bot­tle and clean it thor­oughly. Let it dry. STEP 2 Take a small quan­tity of the acrylic paints in one or mul­ti­ple hues. Ap­ply it on the sur­face of the bot­tle us­ing the paint brush. STEP 3 Af­ter the paint dries, doo­dle your pat­terns, quotes or fig­urines with a marker. You can also fill colour in th­ese doo­dles. STEP 4 Lastly, insert an LED string light or fairy lights in­side the bot­tle. And your bot­tle lamp is ready.

THE RIGHT AN­GLE

Geo­met­ric lights are in vogue. And Ti­mothy Oul­ton’s Meta Ta­ble Lamp takes this trend to a whole new level. Be­sides be­ing an out-of-the-box de­sign, it mim­ics the look of a rock picked up from the seashore. The idea is to fill the space with soft warm light, mak­ing this per­fect for cor­ners, man­tles, as a cen­tre­piece or on bar coun­ters.
