Christmas lights aren’t just for Christmas decorating. They are useful decorative accents for the home all year long. Their soft glow gives them the perfect ambiance for low light situations. The green strands on traditional lights tends to only match Christmas trees, but brown Christmas lights can blend in other places.
Some people like to use brown Christmas lights on their cabinets. They give off a night light effect without being too hot to damage the wood. The brown strand blends into the brown cabinets better than green or white strands.
Another popular use for light strands is to use place them in a glass bowl with potpourri. The gentle heat from the light strand will heat up the potpourri just enough to release the scent into the air. Because most potpourri is brown, or mostly brown, a green light strand will detract from the beauty of the bowl. Brown Christmas lights will blend in with the contents and will not detract from the potpourri.
The back deck is another popular place to use brown Christmas lights. The brown strand will blend in with the wood better than a traditional green strand will. Using a green or white Christmas light set will stand out against the wood and will not look as good brown. With a brown set of lights, all guests will see is the gentle glow of the lights in the darkness.
Brown Christmas lights may be hard to find, but it is worth it to look for them if you are using them on brown or natural colored backgrounds. They will blend in better and will not detract from the beauty of the moment. Your next home decorating project or outdoor party will be a hit with brown Christmas lights as part of your decorating.
