Fairy Lights

Indoor decorating with fairy lights gives me pause for thought. In some aspects I see them as perfect decorations for kids, teenagers, dorm rooms or even first apartments (and of course holiday decor).

Beyond that, they sometimes seem like a quick fix; put up some fairy lights and people will be dazzled by the sparkly light so much they won't see the rest of the mess. BUT...hung with care and attention to detail — or placed in a way that just accents your overall decor without it all just being about the fairy lights — their delicate prettiness shines through.
