GIVEAWAY | Design & Win your own Happy Lights


Happy Lights is our new sponsor and today might be your lucky day as we are giving away five Happy Lights! The Happy Lights concept lets you design your own colourful light string.

The small balls are hand made in the Happy Lights workshop in Thailand. Yarn, mixed with glue, is wound around a small balloon, which is deflated and removed after drying, leaving a nice round textile ball. It's a simple, yet incredibly process. I love the black ones but the good thing is you can design your own light string in your favorite colours.

You can choose out of a total of 55 different colours and make a choice of 20, 35 or 50 coloured balls on a light string. You can also choose out of ready made colour combinations which Ruth and Hendrik, owners of Happy Lights, developed, based on impressions from their worldwide travels.

Apart from selling light strings, Happy Lights also offers large ball lamps. You can combine two or three large balls as a hanging lamp. Or use them as a table top standing lamp in many different colours.






We are giving away 5 Happy lights and here is how you can join

Design your own happy light of 35 small balls by following this link: Create your own Happy lights or choose your favorite ready made Happy light here: Favourites 

Leave a comment under this post telling us your favourite colors |no need to name them all 35| or the name of the ready made Happy lights you would love to win.


This giveaway is closed and here are the winners 
Happy lights selected not 5 but 6 winners!  Congratulations!

Hi! My favourite garlands are the Rollier and Samarkand combinations. My favourite colours are all blue and red, I'd choose a garland consisting of Duck blue + powder blue + white for my studio, where I work and, in the evenings, my child draws. Thank you!

Simpel en eenvoudig voor mij , een volledig zwarte slinger, beetje dramatisch en sober tegelijk!

Liefs,

Tiene

franmyllan said...

This was tricky! I started out trying to make my own using light grey, white and turquoise, but ended up choosing between two of the wonderful pre-made combinations: Lac Assal and Sahara. I guess that Sahara is the safer choice for me, so Lac Assal will be my pick. Confusing, I know ;)

Claudia LG said...

Snowball would be my favourite; simple but stunning!

Stephanie Koster said...

Yes! ik doe mee! had een hele mooie slinger met 35 witte maar die is helaas gesloopt door mijn jongste telg ☹ Zou heel graag een nieuwe winnen. De zwarte uitvoering is ook top! of zo'n grote voor op de grond.

Groetjes,

Stephanie - Coos-je

Louise said...

Cool give away! My favorite colours from happy lights are: (lots of white), blue grey and duck blue...

Mara Kockaerts said...

Wow!
Happy light's zijn het zeker!
Moeilijk om een keuze te maken..
Roma, Sine saloum, Pasha, Adam's peak, Kandi, Sahara, of gewoon snowball?
Ik zal er nog eens goed over moeten nadenken :)

Anonymous said...

So many wonderful colour combinations! Tough to choose... "Andes" would fit perfectly with the New White furniture in my living room! I love the colours!

Mara Kockaerts said...

wow! Happy lights zijn het zeker. Ik was ze al enkele keren tegen gekomen, maar ik wist niet dat er zoveel keuze was én dat je zelf je eigen samenstelling kon maken..
Toch zou ik gaan voor eentje die al bestaat! :)


Zou ik gaan voor Roma, Pasha, Sine Saloum, Adam's peak, Sahara.. of gewoon voor de snowball?

Ze zouden in ieder geval al goed passen bij de vernieuwde living :) Nu nog een keuze maken..

moonsinleo said...

I think 'sahara' 'snowball' or 'kandi' would look best in my home, but truly I love them all!

Ivelina said...

Oh, what a great idea!!! Count me in... def loving the Snowball, it will look perfect on the rustic white brick wall at home <3

Desi Veleva said...

Woww They are amazing! :)) I LOVE the Trinidad one, it's my favorite! :)

Maria K. said...

Such a nice giveaway! I've been meaning to buy one of those beautiful light garlands for so long, but have been indecisive about which colors to choose. These days, being winter and all, I would prefer a combination of neutrals (black, beige, moleskin, white, dark grey) with some old pink ball lamps, to add a little something something. Though the dark blue and the seaweed seem really appealing as well. And flash orange also looks nice with neutralsl. See? Indicisiveness...

Puck said...

What a great giveaway! My favorite would be an all black one, simple and classic, although 'winter' and 'sahara' are gorgeous too!

Kabikaj said...

I love 'Winter'!

net / nicolette said...

HI there,
If you start dragging you almost can't stop creating the perfect combination. Today I chose an all white garland with a silver socket and some grey, blue grey, dark grey and black balls in between the white.

Louise - 30s Magazine said...

Love the warmth of these light chains. I would deocorate our future nursery room with the Sahara light balls - I've been in the desert once and it's so magical, perfect for a cosy, warm and special mood.

Fantastisch, die leuke balletjes aan een lichtsnoer.
Vind kleur kiezen lastig, dus ga voor allemaal spierwit!
Kan in de toekomst nog aparte gekleurde balletjes bestellen per gelegenheid.
Lieve groet, Marleen (basic goods)

Snowboll is mijn absolute favoriet!!!! Zal vast geweldig staan in mijn skaapkamer, lekker dromerig :D Misschien dat ik heerlijk kan ontspannen met deze mooie happy lights & eens niet om 5 uur s'Ochtends alweer wakker word ;) En als dat toch het geval is, ach dan heerlijk genieten van de snowbolls :D
