02/ It might take a bit of time to master, but a loose and organic cluster is great fun to create and can make use of lights all over the room.

We’re particularly charmed by this Copper Drop Cap and Plumen 001 cluster, gorgeously styled by interior designer Suzie McAdam and featured in The Independant.

07/ Another big challenger in our ‘10 creative ideas to style your ceiling lights’ are decorative ceiling hooks.

The ‘Little Bishop’ from Hunter & Richards is a modern take on the traditional ceiling hook, becoming as much an element of decor as the lamp itself.  Or you can try the snazzy new Plumen Ceiling Hook.
